Have you checked for Diagnostic Fault Codes yet? Have your local auto parts store check for codes if you don't have access to a code reader. New Bluetooth OBD readers (ELM327) that pairs with your smartphone or laptop and a free app. (Called "Torque") Great reader for under $20 in most cases. Start there first. Is there a Temp Gauge for coolant? If so.......what is the operating temp doing during those highway trips? If the coolant is overheating, it may be heating the transmission too.
1. Check for codes.
2. Have cooling system checked, cleaned, flushed, and new coolant installed.

Fixed water pump but still it's overheating. Highway driving is fine but once rpms and speed come down temp goes up and it overheats.


It's possible you have a defective thermostat. If coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's an indication that the thermostat is blocked and not allowing the water pump to draw more coolant.

I think your buick has a pressure coolant system so you may have air in the system and need too bleed it and for the light coming on while on the highway most likely low coolant when your driving the higher rpm the more coolant is drawn into the motor and triggering the light from coolant reservoir running low on coolant

Why does my temp gauge fluctuate when i drive in town but stays level on the highway


When on the highway the wind blown through the grille naturally cools the rad coolant. While stuck in traffic the radiator fan will intermittantly cut in to prevent over heating, thus the fluctuations in the temp. gauge.

2001 Ford F-150 Dyes in traffic id outside temp is above 70 F


heat build up causing spark system to break down

tell tale sign is highway drive is fine (plenty of cool air under hood)

you may have spark module prelim failure
it'll only get worse eventually it won't run but a few minutes

Coolant doesn't heat up!


the temp sensor just tells you the temp of the coolant and it controlls the coolant fan to turn on and off at a certain temperature........have you check for coolant leeaks???
