Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette
I have replaced the thermostat and the water pump, but it still is overheating and backflows into the resevoire tank. The radiator is cool the touch, help!
I must say it is a curious problem, we recently got a used 2001 and have just had the same problem. The way it was heating up I felt it was the thermostat so changed that but didnt help. It appears that air pockets are causeing the over heating. On the thermostat houseing is a bleeder vaule which you can use to get the air out. It takes a little time to get all the air out but once I bleed the system out it seems to be fine now. Hope this helps

I know this may sound silly,but is the serp.belt routed correctly,if belt is on wrong side of pulley the pump will turn backwards and not flow the coolant.
