Question about 1992 Buick Skylark
After it dies, I can't get it started for 15 to 20 minutes. There is the correct amount of coolant but the coolant light goes on after the engine dies. The radiator fan is working and the temp guage is in the normal range. There was no loss of power prior to this engine peoblem. Any ideas what's wrong?

I have a 1997 Buick Century with the same problem. Both my fans work if the A/C is
on as they should. If your turn off the A/C the passanger side fan will not come on
and at an idle the coolant in the radiator will boil, you can hear it in the overflow tank.
If you are driving there is enough air flow thru the radiator that the coolant doesn't
boil and the car doesn't overheat. I have replace the water pump, the thermostat.
and the ETS or engine temperature sensor mounted just above the thermostat in
the thernostat housing, to no avail, I still have the same problem. The only other
thing is the coolant level sensor in the radiator, which I haven't replace yet due
to the fact you have to pull the radiator in order to replace it, which is a major
undertaking. I have a low coolant indicator on all the time on the dash so I have
a pretty good idea the coolanat level sensor is bad. The coolant level is not low
so that sensor is not working as it should. I hope this may help with your problem.
To test you fan raise the hood when it is cold and top off the radiator and fill the
overflow tank to the cold mark. Start the car and let it idle with the A/C off and
see if the drivers side fans comes on. It will have to get to operating temp
before the fan will come on. If it doesn't come on replace the radiator low coolant
sensor on the passanger side of the radiator. If that doesn't fix the problem
replace the thermostat and the Engine Temperature Sensor at the thermostat
housing with an A/C Delco Engine Temperature Sensor. Good Luck..

If the thermostat is not opening then the engine heats up. So I would replace that first and then see about the fans not turning.
Hope this helps

I feel there is a sort somewhere in the fan circuitry, check its fuse unit. Also ensure proper level of engine oil is present in the engine. Actually your car might be overheating because the respective fans are not powering on at the correct time, but you mentioned that these fans are in working condition so it has to on something in this circuit that is preventing completion of this circuit by their respective sensors which you have recently changed...............sodeep
