My 300 m is haveing cooling problems after driveing about 14 ml it ddoen't overheat but there is bubbleing in the resivore. i just got my fan replaced and a new cap


If your getting bubbling in the resivour tank while the engine is running then you might have a head gasket failure. There is a test for that. It uses a tube of special liquid that is sort of pink. You fill the container and then put it on the radiator fill spout. Start the engine and operate it for 2 minutes. If your leaking combustion gases into the coolant the liquid changes color to yellow. This test kit can be bought at AutoZone for about $35.00 (other stores may have he kit also).

I bought a 2001 cadi deville w/ a northstar engine.Drove car at night when it was about 60 degrees for about an hour it drove great. Next day it was very hot out and drove for an hour and car overheated....


Hello, The blue fluid will turn yellow, once you use the fluid throw it away. Do not mix it with the good fluid left over. I have never kept it long enough to see what happens later. It also sounds like you have a plugged radiator. Someone may have put stop leak to try and cover up a leaking head gasket.

My 95 bonneville is losing coolant and getting hot. Could it just be the thermostat?


more info would be needed to accurately assist you. the bonnevilles typically had a 3.8 liter engine that had a liquid cooled throttle body assembly. it was common for the gasket between the throttle boty and upper intake manifold to leak. this leak if left unattended for extended period of time could result in low coolant levels, therby causing it to overheat....any time any vehicle overheats..it is wise to replace the thermostat as it can fail as result of overheating....the throttle body is the first component on engine after the large rubber hose of the air filter housing attaches to the engine

hope this helps
