Question about 1995 Buick Regal
Sounds like your water pump is gone! In these engines the car will run with a bad pump. Take the belt off and see if you can shake the pulley on the water pump. If it moves up or down its gone! these 3.8 usually run a bit hot at idle it could be a combination of MAS sensor and clogged CAT but the car run about 220 normally! Its old school that TPI! They don't even make a 160 degree thermstat for this application! Just check that pump and hope she stays below the red on the temp guage! I switch to dexcool and cooled way down. try it.
