Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix
There are a couple of things that make a vehicle overheat. Your thermostat could be stuck closed not allowing the coolant to circulate, or your waterpump has gone out. Its possible your radiator has clogged up from minerals and or rust from the water.
Make sure you don't have a leak or a bad hose. The lower hose sometimes will get weak from oil contamination and the water pump will actually **** it closed.
When the car is warm feel your top radiator hose and see if it is cool. That would indicate a stuck thermostat. If it is hot then put on a pair of gloves and squeeze the hose, you should feel the pulsing of the waterpump and the water flowing by (like a garden hose). If not that is a good indicator of a bad pump.
