You mean open loop ;)
That indeed i did ;)
You will know its the thermostat sticking open as it will take forever to get up to temp, but sounds like a likely cause.
How long does it take to warm up from cold? As it should only take around 5 mins for the coolant to get nice and warm..

How long have they been in there,? Normally a rich running car will be blacker than that,

Yes they do look like that because of overfuleing, drain the coolant and check your thermostat, it should be closed when you take it out, stick it in a bucket of water at around 70-80 degrees and it should open up, if its open you need to replace it..

would this cause fumes in car when drivin?? Smells gettin real bad in mine,between that and burning f*cking oil i gettin real pissed off with it all. >:(   :'(

Your burning oil smell is caused by the cam gasket leak dropping oil onto ur manifold.

wont it cause any leaks appear  in the bottom of the tank? and smell gas as well if that is true? cos the guy did go under the tank and check everything in there.. nothing! but we didn't remove the tank and check the sender! could it be?

You have to drop the tank, in order to check it properly...

It's not a big job to check it, but it's more so an issue in the UK, due to the weather...

Are you getting a loss in power as you try to accelerate, almost misfire? 

If it was your fuel sender you would have petrol leaking out under the tank, after the car has switched off.

If you are in Jordan I highly doubt you would have a rusted fuel sender unit, the only reason they rust is from the salt spread on the roads in cold winter months.  Dont think Jordan has ice or snow in winter does it?

True, but Chevrolet probably did have dealerships in Jordan. It was sold in south America n some other places, as a Chevrolet Calibra.

to be true, the car's performance is more than perfect. and the fuel sender i have is not metal even, it is Plastic! we just checked it yesterday.. and yes we do have Ice, Snow, Rain, all kind of weather than can pop in your mind. we have the four seasons in here, but we don't use salt on the roads like you guys.

Anyway, yesterday was a very bad day for me, i spent 7 hours at another garage just checking for the problem i have, and guess what?? NOTHING! the only thing we found is that the fan work on 90 like it should be, but never turns of! (the first speed) and the temp do drop and thermostat is working ok, then goes back up to 90/92 and then 85 or so, but the fan never turn of until i switch off the car!!!! today i will go to another garage to check this "knowing i changed/replaced the (thermo switch) 3 times yesterday, and still the same" 82-92 / 85-90.

no gas leak, no gas smell, nothing.. the lambda sensor is going ok, no faulty cods AT ALL!

Please if anyone knows something, or suspect anything.. you are welcomed to help me,, please

we have Opel in here, it is not called Vauxhall in the Middle East.. and yes we have one, but it will cost me ALOT if i send her there! even they are not that good and we prefer private garages, they know better!
