Is the fan coming on? are you losing water out the radiator? if the head gasket is blown it can be blown into the oilpan the oil will be milky it can be leaking out the side of the heaqd at the block or going into the cylinders and out the exhaust you can also have a bad thermostat i have bought bad new ones one way to test it is take it out and boil it in a pan of water it should open about 180 to 190

1991 Cadillac eldorado overheating

Incorrect timing can also cause overheating along with bad radiator, bad pump, fan not working, bad thermostat, AC, inadequate lubrication, low coolant level, engine load as when towing, etc.
Until issue resolved put your heater on full blast and lower the window.

97 cadillac eldorado overflowing through overflow pipe

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is 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 to near the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

Car has new plugs, wires, dist. cap and rotor, also water pump. Sputters badly when you take off, continues to sputter until higher speed is reached. Also surges occassionally when idling. Fuel pressure...

to me it sounds like your just about to put water down your exhaust mate or your rings are binding up. I recon dump your oil and run diesel oil from now on and reset your timing belt before those new spark plugs end up in your lap.

1997 cadillac eldorado running hot

Make sure you put in the correct temp thermostat. GM usually has 2. A low temp and a high temp. Most shops will give ya the high temp just because thats usually what the book calls for. you might want to try a low temp. Also, sometimes, when a car runs hot and everything has been repaired....well, almost might be the head gaskets. And those my friend are no easy task. But..somewhere to start. have your cooling system pressure tested. Only way to really know for sure. Oh..also make sure your fan is working!!!! You might have a faulty fan switch.

Runs hot has anti-frezze can it be water pump

it could be the pump, thermostat, or a bound up heater hose. I would start with a complete power flush, or buy the kit and do it yourself. Then replace the thermostat, if that doesn't work, then have the water pump replaced.

1997 eldorado still runs hot

Are you sure it's not air locked? Run it with the rad cap off and keep watching the water level. It might go up and down and then finally drop. Maybe even try letting some air out of one of your heater hoses if you can.
