1999 Cadillac STS OverHeating !!!


A blown head gasket or intake gasket does not always put coolant into the oil or produce smoke.. If the gasket blew between an oil vein and coolant vein then there is a possibility that your actually pushing the oil into the coolant side.. When the car is cool... look at your antifreeze and see if it has the oil slick look to it.. That being said it could be a head gasket or it could be in the intake as well..

My 2000 dodge intriped .....when i put water in the radiator it runs out quick but the gage dont go to hot instead the oil light came on it over heated and shut down is it the hose or waterpump


All depends on where the leak is. Could also be a blown head gasket.
The temp gauge does not read because there is no liquid for it to measure.

Auto coolant hot temp light comes on and temp gauge goes up more when idling at a light


If temp gauge is going into the red on a 3.4 engine it must be shut down or head damage can happen within minutes. I have a Monte Carlo that was overheating. I changed everything, thermostat, water pump, belt tensioner, radiator, all with no result. It would start out okay on a cold start but then I would come to a red light and the temp would creep up. Higher and higher until it neared the red zone. The heat would run cold. Most of the time, as soon as it was about to touch the red it would start to drop, the heat would blow hot again and all seemed okay but not for long. This would get worse and worse until the red hot light came on and I found myself on the side of the thruway. This problem is a blown head gasket. I had no other obvious signs, no white smoke from the exhaust, no oil in the antifreeze. I even changed the intake gaskets. Head gasket issues are common on the 3.4 liter engines.

Oil is leaking into the cooling system of the car


You could have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or a cracked block. Usually it is the head gasket unless you overheated the car to the point that it shut off.

Over heat some times but temp gage is saying its fine not head gasaet


not sure what exactly you are asking... if your temp gauge is normal with the motor up to normal temperature (210-211 degrees for dodge) and suddenly moves down to the cool mark like around 100-150 usually that indicates you are low or have no coolant. if your engine starts making knocking noises and pinging or sounds bad when this happens it is bad the motor is overheating.
to find out if it is the head gasket. let the engine cool down, remove radiator cap look if you see oil in the radiator (antifreeze is usually orange, red or green) if it is black or milky white in the radiator good chance it is a blown head gasket, check the oil if there is water in the oil, good chance it is a blown head gasket. leave radiator cap off make sure radiator is full start engine let temperature come up to normal keep everyone away from radiator,rev engine in the safety of the car if you have radiator fluid shooting out of the radiator like a geyser it is blown head gasket
