Car runs hot when in traffic or in idle temp rises go down when car begins to move


It maybe just a bad thermostat.
First check coolant level. If it is low, pull out the engine oil dipstick and check the top for whiteish foam or cream . Also check the engine oil filler cap for the same. If the foam (or cream) is present you could have a bad head gasket or warped or cracked head.
If there is no foam then you most likely need a new thermostat.

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8


Low pressure when at idle, after the engine has warmed up and the oil has thinned, indicates that the oil pump is worn and needs to be replaced.

Oil light flickers and overheating


Sorry to say the oil light may be for low oil pressure, not necessarily low oil level. If the oil pressure is low, you are wearing out the bearings and engine parts at a very fast pace.

Overheating car


There may be an issue with your oil pressure sensor.
You also probably have a faulty water pump that is functioning under revs but not at idle, what happens if you rev it mildly at idle

Overheating,eveything looks ok.


I have a 97 Cadillac Deville with a northstar engine and have replaced it twice so far, so i answer this by experience...i've noticed to my two prior engines that went bad that the normal temp should NOT EXCEED 228 (normal), the red overheating light will come on at 250 and at 260 it will beep and tell you to stop engine - idle engine and will begin to smoke (overheat).

I hope this helps you and anyone else...by the way if your asking why did i replace my engine twice is simply because my cadillac is super clean inside and out, immaculate condition.
