When changing the thermastat was there oil there also? Sounds like you have a blown head gasket, sorry

    yes this is a very costly fix. the head has to come off and checked for smoothness and check the bottom end of motor also, cause all that water and antifreeze doesn't mix with bearings in the bottom end.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue- Radiator Flush


you may need to replace the thermostat or the water pump to solve the overheating issue.
The leak in the overflow was NOT the cause of over heating.
You do have a radiator cap. It is the one on top of the overflow.

The radiator drain petcock is on the bottom of the radiator near one of the corner edges.
(Some face engine, others face the grille)
If for some reason you still can not find it, you can always pull the lower radiator hose (make sure water/engine is cold)

once you flush/fill the system, use a 50/50 mix of water and the proper antifreeze. (older cars use green, newer use orange)

If you are unsure, just ask the guys at the auto parts place which one you need and note that they sell an orange color that can be safely used in old and new cars and it can also be mixed with any color of fluid.

After you have the system filled, start the engine and remove the fill cap.... let it run and watch for air to rise out from the opening. (Some coolant/water may overflow, but you need to watch for any air bubbles coming out)

Once you don't see any air trying to escape, put the cap on tight and you should be good to go,

Another cause for overheating is air trapped in the system.

I hope this helps.

Car keeps overheating


Assuming the engine is ok, no leaking head gasket or exhaust problem, you need to know if the radiator fan comes on when the engine reaches 225 degrees. It should also come on when you turn the ac on if the ac works.
Its also possible you have air in the cooling system.

My 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette keeps overheating. We replaced the thermostat and flushed the system by adding new antifreeze. The air blows cold from the heater when the car starts to overheat. Once


there can be air pocket somewhere you need to bleed system properly. rais the front let is idle bleed it thru bleeding screw. be sure that bubbles are over.

air pockets prevent coolant travel inside system. so it may not reach to radiator, or cabin heater or both.

Overheating


OVERHEATING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS LIKE FAULTY THERMOSTAT AND FAULTY RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP,TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM NEED 50 / 50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAK, IF COOLANT LEAKING OUT WEEP HOLE WATER PUMP BAD NEED REPLACING.CHECK FOR LOW COOLANT LEVEL, YOUR RADIATOR OVERFLOW JUG SHOULD HAVE COOLANT AT THE FULL COLD MARK IF NOT KEEP ADDING COOLANT INTO COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT STOP DROPPING AND FULL COLD MARK, IF OVERFLOW COOLANT JUG WAS EMPTY RADIATOR IS LOW ON COOLANT.WHICH CAUSE AIR IN COOLANT SYSTEM KEEPING THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FROM BEING SUBMERGE IN HOT COOLANT WHICH TURN ON THE COOLANT FANS.WHEN ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET CERTAIN SET TEMPERATURE LIKE 190 DEGREES THE PCM AND COOLANT SENSOR WILL TURN ON COOLANT FANS, IF VECHICLE OVERHEATING COOLANT FANS NOT WORKING EITHER YOU HAVE FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAYS. YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

If your car is able to go 25-30 miles before overheating,I have seen where a loose bolt or tensioner could cause you to go a while before overheat.The oil pump works but if the belt is loose,it cannot keep up with the required flow and slowly overheats.If this is not your problem,let me know and I will figure something else out.Good luck!

You have air in the cooling system. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap (or overflow bottle cap if no radiator cap) and let the engine get to operating temp. Add coolant if it is low. There is no way to guess which of the 3000 codes your car has set without scanning it for codes.

2000 Olds intrigue overheating


i have a 2000 olds intrigue thats been overheating alot lately the other day my drain plug for my radiator came on the way to work so i lost all my antifreeze on the way, i got to work and wound getting another plug to replace...the one that came out...topped off antifreeze...anyhow i go home and car overheats on the way home...i took it to a radiator shop today and they checked for, leaks, checked the water pump, pressure tested it...and they told me that the only thing they found was a airlock, but however the guy did recommend taking it to a mech and having it checked for a blown headgasket, so i go home today and i noticed my temp gauge going up and down on the way home it would get hot then cool down then get hot again...the car did eventually start to overheated so i pulled over and let the car cool down...i know this is getting frustrating, so do you have any recommendations or solutions as to whats cause the car to overheat.

Overheating in 2002 sedona


To check if it is the thermostat run the car and when the temp starts going up turn the heat on full blast in the car. If the temp goes down after you turn the heat on than it is your thermostat.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Overheating


It is probably the problem. To make shure that need to change the gaskets, one of the symptoms use to be thet the temp rises when you are running at speed 50+ average, where is supposed that the car gets a lot of air due by the speed and nobody thinks that will be overheated.
