When it stalls out, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. A spark tester from the auto store doesn't cost much, you can carry it in your glove box. If the engine is hot, wear gloves.

With temp issues check the coolant temp sensor. How long since a tune-up, I'd also want to check fuel pressure. Check for applicable trouble codes. Your obd1, you should be able to check codes, yourself. You use a jumper wire between the A & B terminals at the data link connector, usually lower edge of dash between steering column and driver door. Turn key just till the dash lights come on, no further. The mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes.

1984 Olds Delta 88 307 over heats.


If you have an automatic transmission that is routed through your cooling system, and you've tried everything possible to correct overheating, your tranny may be on its way out. The problems your tranny may be having having operating normally could be effecting the engine temp.
THE other problem may be that you just need to replace your radiator cap. If that fails then check your fan to make sure that they are working. if that fails that it could be a bad head gasket and it needs to be replaced
