Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
I have a 1993 cutlass Cierra with a 6 cyl. 3.1 engine. It overheats after 5- 10 min . The radiator and hoses are not hot. Thermostat right? Wrong! I have tried 2 new thermosats and still overheats. I thought some kind of airlock, so I used the air bleeder on the Tstat housing. Still no good. Could it be a bad Water pump? Does anybody know if these are particularly suseptable to corrosion problems? I wondered if the impeller is shot? I am about to try leaving the stat out?
Does there seem to be alot of pressure on hoses, when you squeeze them ? ive seen impellars on the water pump cause this, but not very often. a possible air lock can be a pain. a trick is to jack front end of car up to a point engine is tilted back a bit. it helps the bubble in finding its way out. if this dosent work after a couple tries, id start to suspect headgasket issue allowing air into coolant. a tell tale of a head gasket would be a constant temp gauge fluxuation ( mid temp-hot mid to hot etc. ) let me know.

The water pump is your only option. Its not getting any cerculation.
