Question about 1997 Cadillac Eldorado
You won't know the reason until you tear it down and take a look or have other testing done. And they all don't fail, I've seen them with well over 200,000 miles on them and no problems. It is very importan to have the cooling system checked and serviced every 30,000-60,000 miles or at the sign of any hot run or leaks under the car.

Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. In this case though, I feel that you are blowing hot exhast gases from the combustion chamber into the water jacket causeing it to heat up. In these cases, the engine will generaly get hot in shorter time than what one would normally suspect. Typically just a head gasket is needed. Have your mechanic check the radiator for combustion gases. This is checked with a fluid in a bolltle that will change colors if found. GL

Do you know how the head gasket was tested? I prefer the combustion leak detector.This is placed over the fill reservoir and connected to a vacuum source.The cylinder is then filled with a chemical that changes from blue to yellow when combustion gases hit it Additionally a very good way to check for a coolant leak is a UV light.Antifreeze is very flourecent with one of these.

There is a problem with the hole getting clogged right by where the engine connection is, use a piece of wire to unclog the orifice and reinstall the line. You should be OK after that.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
