222 is quite normal for the Northstar engine.
The cooling fans don't come on until around 225 degrees unless of course you have the air con on.

I would say 195f-205f is normal, 222f, thats a little high. check coolant level, radiator, water pump, belt and tensioner have their own belt separate from the big belt.

My 97 cadillac deville over heated 1 time on the highway. after filling it with coolant i dont have any problems. why did it overheat that 1 time


if you are using coolant that is mixed 50-50 with water, the water will evaporate. If you are having issues and using straight antifreeze without a water mixture, you may have a small coolant leak or a small leak in the head gasket.

When driving the cooling temp stays about around 197, but when i stop at a light, and go the temp, go up to about 222 and sometimes 230, and once the light turns green and you drive for awhile it goes back...


Sounds like like your radiator fan is not turning on when it should.Check fan relay,fan fuse and check for 12 volts at fan motor at connector.If all checks out then fan motor is most likely bad.

Are you sure the thermostat was in the wrong way ?.

The thermostat is located in the bottom hose unlike most conventional cooling systems.

The thermostat in the Northstar engine is a dual action device.
One end of the stem is the Thermostat(obviously) and at the other end is a spring loaded pressure valve(the thinner end).

Make sure the thermostat end is nearest the rubber hose and the pressure valve end is in towards the engine.

Also note that the cooling fans don't come on until the coolant temperature hits around 225 degrees.
During normal highway driving the fans will very rarely come on(if at all) due to constant air flow through the radiator.They will only usually come on in heavy traffic conditions on a hot day.
But......if you have the Air Con switched on, the fans will run all of the time.

For overheating problems consider the following......

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line(small hose).The purge line is designed to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank (not the cap) ,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.
If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.
The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side close to the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

1995 Pontiac Grand Am SE runs hotter than normal


Everything you said is normal. It is common for these to hear coolant in the heater core, especially with a new one. There is a cure for it but it will make the heater not work as well. 200 coolant temp is normal. It is running at 170 with the air on because the fan is running. You can get a thermostat that opens at a cooler temp but the vehicle will run better and get better mileage at 195. Without the air on the fans will come on at 235. I don't see anything wrong.

Need to know coolant temp operating range for 1988 Seville


Entirely possible and in range. Depends on outside temps and type of driving. The radiator is colled by electric cooling fans, controlled by temp sensors. Fans should come on automatically when a/c is turned on

Engine running to cool


Replace the thermostat. If thermo is stuck open, coolant only heats up when there is no flow over radiator(idle) and then cools down when driving. Also, check coolant level, same response as stuck thermo.
