Allow it to cool down and refill system while running with heater on hot. Hopefully this will get the air out of the system. However, if this condition persists, have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons. These engines are sensitive to overheat and you may have blown a head gasket. (hope not)
Good luck!

SOURCE: 99 Cadillac Seville STS overheating

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Diesel engine runs then stops then runs stops every few minutes


Mate I use to drive a freightliner and it cut out on me one day, I eventually got it started but cut out again after about 5 minutes, I rang a mechanic to come out and he found a heat sensor wire came off the radiator and that caused the motor to cut out... Hope I haven't wasted your time.......

99' f-150, 5.4 triton V8, 340,000 miles. Runs great unless I drive 15 plus miles and shut off. If I try to start right away, it turns over but won't start. I wait from 10 to 40 minutes until starts.


Could be vapor-lock. When you shut it down fully warm, heat can cause the fuel in the lines to boil, making it hard to start. Low fuel pressure can make the symptoms worse, as full pressure will condense the vapor, and get your fuel flowing.

I would check fuel pressure while running, and again, during the time when it doesn't start.

Has the exhaust ( catalytic converter) been check for proper flow? I would try a test pipe to by-pass converter and see if that helps. You used to be able to buy them, but a good exhaust shop can make one pretty quick, and then try it.

Check the radiator fluid level and top up if needed.
Check the gearbox oil level and for signs of discolouration. Replace if needed.

The engine on my 2000 MPV cuts out and dies when I press the accelerator. After it sits for an hour or so, I can travel for 20 min. or so before the problem starts again. HELP!


if its been a while change the fuel filter and then have the fuel pressure and volume checked.these symptoms are very common for a fuel pump problem.

2001 yukon xl every 40 miles acts like its running out of fuel..turn off for 30 seconds and runs fine for another 40 miles then does it every 10 minutes and crank sensor has been replaced. wheres the fuel...


Not sure of filter location but it sounds like pump may be failing...when they do, they bind when they get hot, when cooled down, they work for a short time and then do the same thing again. Likely you will find the filter in the line near the tank...won't hurt to replace it first.
