Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Full reservoir, high temps.

1995 Old Silhouette. Temp gauge shoots to high after about 2 miles, then back to regular levels. Low coolant light is on, but overflow tank is full. No visible leaks. New head gasket, water pump, and thermostat within the past 2 years. Also, the bleeder screw head near the water pump is broken off. Any other suggestions on a fix, and is there another way to bleed the line near the pump?

SOURCE: 1999 olds silhouette heat is warm when running

The heater core could be clogged. If your antifreeze is orange , then it is Dexcool antifreeze which causes slime and sludge to build up in the cooling system. It can clog a heater core. My suggestion would be to drain and flush the entire cooling system with Prestone Super Flush. Put in a new thermostat while your at it. Refill the cooling system with a green antifreeze that is labeled compatible with aluminum engine parts and radiators.Do Not refill with Dexcool antifreeze.

One guess is there is air in the cooling system. The air pockets will cause temporary overheating (fluctuating guage).

It sounds like a bad head gasket is creating these air pockets.

My heater is blowing cold air and the temp gauge is rising; do I need a new heater or is it something else? I regulary put in fuel injector cleaner every 3000 miles. When I searched for Heater Cores it...


it sounds like you are running out of coolant. refill and check for leaks. The coolant reservoir may have a leak. Your thermostat may need replacement.

I have a 2000 silhouette. the coolant level low light keeps coming on even though coolant has been added. after about 10 minutes of idling the temp rises to just below h.but temp is fine while driving....


Bleed the air out of the coolant system,and add more coolant,to radiator,and reservoir,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,if the low coolant light stays on,remove the low coolant light sensor,and clean it off,it is located on passengers side in the radiator,it has a wire clip you have to remove,and dont loose it,after cleaning it,put the clip back on the sensor,and push the sensor back in the hole.

The wiper switch is most likely bad. Check the coolant level for the temp. issue. Low coolant will cause a gauge to shoot up suddenly

Coolant fill procedure


NEVER open the radiator when the car (or any other engine) is running!! The radiator is part of the pressurized cooling system (under that cap is coolant at 15psi)

Correct way to check the coolant in the radiator, is wait until the engine is COLD, then remove the radiator cap and re-fill.
