Possible sticking thermostat (probable) but you could have a fan thermostat going bad also if it has an electric fan, next time it starts over heating look under hood and see if the fan on the radiator is spinning, if not it or the thermostat for it could be bad

Tachometer drops low


vacuum leak usually increases rpm--the electrics got hurt from overheat--hav a data stream run-displays values of evry component-so u kno what parts are bad----private mechanic not a dealer- a scanner that uses factory gear not a 30$ tool sold in stores--the vehicle computer may hav an issue-a readout wont disclose it--so disconnect batt n see if problem clears or pull plug on computer and clean the pins--may reboot

My 97 gran prix overheated and shut itself. And now won't start. The Atifrz leaked out and engine overheated.


sometimes when an engine gets hot enough it will stop running due to the metal expansion when it is hot.if it cools off it will probably start but don`t run it very long especially without coolant.the thermostat may have seized in the closed position this sometimes happens as when the car is running the temperature flucuates the stat will close and open all the time(won`t close completely).another problem could be a bad head gasket that allowed coolant into the combustion chamber enough that the motor went into what is called hydraulic lock,coolant has filled the combustion chamber enough that the piston won`t move through out its normal travel.i would try changing the thermostat first refill cooling system and let run until the cooling fans have cycled on and off.if it doesn`t overheat and it cranks over when you try to start it then the stat is more than likely the problem.

Overheating prob in chevy camaro z28 97


Check for obstruction in front of radiator/condenser that would cause loss of airflow through the core.Sometimes these cores get clogged with bugs or debris and airflow is deminished. The reason for overheat with A/C on is that the condenser adds to the heat in front of the radiator and if there is not enough airflow then the engine also runs hot because radiator can not be cooled sufficiently.
hope this helps

My retired uncle has a 97 cadillac deville sts that runs well but after a short distance or time idling begins to overheat. He has replaced the water pump, thermostat and had the radiator and head gasket checked. Unfortunately he lives in a rural area and there is no local cadillac dealership for diagnostic repairs.
