Question about 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold
1996 Regal 3.8L
1) Replaced leaking coolant bypass tube (elbow from belt tensioner to engine block)
2) Replaced bad AC compressor with a basic floater pulley.
3) Replaced serpentine belt.
4) Refilled / topped off antifreeze with 50/50.
Car now purrs like a kitty. However I now have no heat inside the car. Blower works, but I only get cold air on any/all settings. Test drove the car, and after aprox 1 mile car came close to over heating. I parked it, opened the hood with it running and noticed the radiator fans are not turning on.
I'm at a loss here. Any ideas guys?
Most likely when you replaced coolant line and refilled rad the system was not bled properly.
fill the system with 50/50 again and top up the reservoir. run the engine to 2000 rpm and look at temp gauge . it should rise to middle and drop to low this means t stat opend and air is out now let engine idle and top up coolant. good luck
