Hi!

Your coolant temp sensor may be defective, check wiring also, if this senor doesn't send the signal the Cooling Fan won't kick in. Fan will come on when temp reaches half way on gauge.

Good Luck!!

I have a 1998 oldsmobile aurora that is overheating. no leaks, runs fine then temp goes up and coolant boils up to the resevoir cap and comes out around the cap. replaced thermostat. fan comes on


Try changing radiator cap if there is no water in the oil it is not a head gasket could be system just needs a flush. It could also be the water pump is not pumping well try the cap first.

OVERFLOW IS BOILING


If the thermostat is not opening, the engine will keep getting hotter as you drive. You could be low on coolant and have air pockets in the system which would cause the temp gauge to not be accurate. Is the radiator fan coming on when the tank is boiling ?

Orginally, the temp gauge reads normal, drives fine, shut car sown and the reserve tank is boiling, changed the thermostat last night, let the car heat up drove it 2 blocks away, temp gauge shot up to hot...


2 blocks is fast to reach boiling.Take the cap off the overflow tank and fill it right to the very top with coolant.Start the car and watch for a steady stream of bubbles.If you see a steady stream you do need a head gasket or have a crack somewhere in a combustion camber.

Location of thermostat and replacement


Finding the thermostat is easy. Just follow the top radiator hose back to the engine.
The question I have is how to get to the bottom screw of the thermostat housing.

Any Sugustions anyone?
