A common cause for this is a stuck-closed thermostat, which would disallow coolant from circulating from the engine to the radiator. take the cap off the radiator and see if you can visualize the coolant circulating. if the coolant is just sitting there stagnating then that's probably the issue

My 1998 century over heats


Check condition and operation of thermostat.
Check operation of radiator cooling fan when hot.
Check radiator coolant level. If low, then perform a cooling system pressure check to identify cause of leak.
Check coolant condition. If using water only, then corrosion may build up within system and cause blockages. If blocked, then flush system and refill with anti freeze-water mixture of 50/50.

Hi i just brought a buick century 1998 and well is overheating and i dont know what it could be?


It could be many things. Low coolant, fault thermostat, a blockage in the system, worn or broken water pump impeller, slipping belt on water pump pulley, the cooling fans may not be operating (this could be a faulty temp sensor, fuse, relay, wiring or the fan motor itself).

You need to change the "Coolant Temperature Sensor". That usually controls the fan. If the fan does not run, you will overheat.

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

Change thermostate and make sure there is enough coolant (not water) in the system.
Check that the thermostate sensor is working properly.
