You may have a seaping head gasket,A sign of that would be air steaming from the radiator.Normally it will rapidly heat up and blow pressure out of the overflow.You have replaced every likely part that may have been suspect, So the chance that you have a faulty head gasket or a possible cylinder head issue is very possible.If you decide to replace the head gaskets make sure you have your cylinder heads checked my a machine shop those heads have been suspect for cracking near the water jackets and valve area.

If you had a crack in your head you should be losing water inside/outside the engine, the same with a head gasket, check for water running down the outside of block and the exhast for excess water discharge, I know will sould stupid but did you insert the thermostat in the correct way? spring facing downwards?. The only other thing i can think of is if you have a collapsed rubber hose somewhere.

Wont start when hot until cool


Also, consider seriously about replacing the water pump. I have a friend with this exact car, and they had the same problem - the water pump was literally "gone" - when it was pulled and shown to me, I was amazed at the condition - this was the factory water pump and if you can picture what fan blades look like, imagine the fan without the complete blades - they were completely corroded and the pump was seized up - make sure you drive as little as possibe, as this friend had driven on it with the pump in that condition for months, which in turn caused a blown head gasket as well as several other mechanical problems.

Engine overheating-----1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.4 liter v/6


There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

Water pump


A manual will have pictures and everything.
Just replaced mine. Five bolts in bracket holding tension idler, A/C compressor (if applicable) and power steering pump must be removed to access 3 bolts in water pump. Just push aside enough to access remaining bolts. Email at dabeam@sbcglobal.net if additional info is needed. Also, diagram serpentine belt before removing. Took me at least 15 attempts and 20 minutes to figure out
