ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

SOURCE: blown head gasket
the worst case senareo, could have crack in head, worse yet cracked block. a friend of mine had a 95 olds same car as yours just different brand same engine got hot cracked the block. you can try a sealent, i never seen any that would seal a head gasget or crack block. myself i woodent mess with it, junk yard motor,theres a lot of them out there, most you can hear run before you buy. cars almost 15 years old, should be able to pick one up for around 350 to 400 bucks. you have that much in it if you tear it down and put it back together yourself. save yourself alot of trouble, not to mention money, and chg. engines. hope i helped.

CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.
