Check for spark when it turns over, have some one listen to see if your fuel pump runs when you turn the key on, check to see if you have fuel pressure, check to see if you have compression

Have a cadie 01 changed water pump and thurmostat and still over heating and running hot any ideas


Try to flush and fill with new fluid to get the passageways free of sediment.

Or, try to see if the fans are coming on at the right speed at operating temperature. May require new fans/relays/wiring to fix this problem.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that was overheating its Northstar engine and it required service amounting to about $700.00 or so from an auto electric shop, but afterwards it ran cooler.

Good luck on this repair.

There are thermostat rated for 180f or 195f for your engine,
