Overheating 09 g6 gxp
First the damaged started i hit a bump in texas it bent the supports to the radiator back and cracked the radiator. I got those fixed and headed back home. but also had my craddle was bent so i had the replaced along with new fan and air condenser.
So all that fixed but now my car over heats while i drive at times it gets to 225. for the entire year i had it never moved but now it moves.
a pontiac dealership repair shop says thats normal??????????? wtf.
they said they ran all the tests twice but im like that never did that before this happened.
the guys that fixed it when they replaced the raidotor was a little concerened that not enough coolant was put in it only took 1 gallon and it said it was full...
what else could be making my car heat up like that.
Bad radiator? a fan relay got wet somehow? thermostat got damaged when there was no coolant?
also i was told this was normal when i turn off the car and come back lets say 5 mins later and turn the engine on its hot..... but i would swear before this happened it would always be at the one normal dash on the temp gauge.
so help please.
will here was a solution from the guys in texas there is a rubber seal on the raditor it was on before i had the other repiars done but now its off but here is the catch before the repairs it was still heating up. so it cant be that but it might help.
im thinking like fan or radiotor something HELP PLEASE.
