Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville
STOP ENGINE! ENGINE OVER HEATED ... LOW COOLANT BUT THE THE COOLANT RESERVOIR IS FULL AND IT ALSO SAYS CHANGE ENGINE OIL, OIL WAS CHANGED FEW DAYS AGO.
Low levels of coolant can lead to problems related to engine overheating. Always
maintain proper levels of coolant in the overflow coolant reservoir tank. ONLY!
check the radiator when the engine is cold. Only add antifreeze and reinstall the
cap properly. Always drain and refill your
cooling system regularly.
Over heating can cause severe and catastrophic engine failure. While over heating, the pistons inside the engine swell in the cylinder block causing cylinder wall scoring, the cylinder heads will crack, and finally the engine block itself will crack. Check and service your vehicles cooling system regularly.
. A radiator is used to remove heat from the engine coolant through convection. Coolant is forced through the radiator hoses and into the radiator via the water pump. Inside the radiator many small tubes which are constructed with cooling fins transfer heat to the atmosphere. If the radiator becomes plugged it fails to transfer heat from the coolant causing the engine to over heat. This condition generally occurs gradually over time and will be more noticeable when climbing a grade or in warm climate. To check for this condition make sure the is engine cold, then drain coolant to lower the level in the radiator. The coolant level is lowered to allow visual inspection of the cooler tubes in the radiator core. If the radiator cooler tubes are plugged drain the cooling system completely and replace the radiator with new, reassemble to refill with coolant and recheck system.

It seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.

--Check the chock,, that it is not turned on.
--May be sum loosing nut in engine.
