Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 3.4L DOHC....... The engine is over heating (yes it has coolant in it).... and I had noticed a leak in the coolant so we replaced the radiator (which had a hole in it) ... and it still seems to be overheating. It goes above 210 (fan kicks on at that time - most of the time) but at time it gets up to 245 or so.... just trying to find out the next probably fix. We considered the thermostat, but was hoping there was other options incase it didnt work. also someone posted online that replacing the Radiator cap could also assist in the problem.\r\n Any suggestions?

Maybe a backflushing of the cooling system can help to make it cool more efficiently.

Sediment can build up in the cooling system causing a lack of flow of coolant.

Also, the thermostat could be stuck closed, as others have suggested.

If heater core is leaking coolant will this cause engine to over heat?


Yes it can, the coolant leaks from the heater core, and causes the engine to lose coolant. The sad part is, if your heater core in underneath your dashboard, you will have coolant in the floorboard.

    REPLACE THERMOSTAT TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.IF YOU PUT NEW RADIATOR IN MORE LIKELY YOU NEED TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM CHECK COOLANT LEVEL WHEN ENGINE COOLS DOWN. YOU HAVE AIR IN COOLANT SYSTEM.AIR WILL EXPEL AND COOLANT LEVEL DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL YOU HAVE RIGHT AMOUNT COOLANT IN RADIATOR.DONT DRIVE CAR UNTIL COOLANT SYSTEM BLEED.WHEN THERMOSTAT OPENS TURN OFF ENGINE WAIT A WHILE THEN CHECK COOLANT LEVEL KEEP ADDING UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN RADIATOR. USE LARGE RAG OVER RADIATOR CAP TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED BUT WAIT UNTIL COOL DOWN ENOUGH SO YOU WONT GET SCALDED.

    My 1997 grand prix gtp has a leak


    Is it water or coolant that leaks inside. Water will be clear, coolant will be yellowish-green or blue. If it is clear than it is just a rubber hose that is loose from the AC drain. Replace the hose and clamp. If it is coolant then you have a leaking heater core and would need to get it replaced.

    1. My grand prix gtp has problems with leaking on the passenger side. I cannot locate the leak. 2. My engine runs too hot when ideling. I changed the thermostat but this did not help. I need your assi


    Make sure your cooling fans are coming on when the temp heats up. Are you talking about a leak inside the car or outside? Inside is usaully a drain tube for the A/C stopped up. Outside, look for a water pump or intake gasket.
