Hi. MI am working on a 1977 chevy malibu with your experience could you please offer some guidance because it is over heating. The raidiator has been cleaned, the pump replaced, we believe that a shroud could help but I find it impossible to find parts for this model.
Also is my car a chevelle or just a plain chevy?

welcome to ct. if it overheats in traffic you may need a shroud. if you have a fan clutch you need to be sure it works. if it overheats going down the highway its a different problem. could be igniton timing too retarded, or a collapsing radiator hose or a thermostat that wont open enough. as for names, call it what you want. only an anal person will fault you for it

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.
