Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Open Question

Recently replaced water pump in my 2001 Intrigue 3.5L and also the thermostat & system bleed/flush while I was doing the job. Now it's clicking/popping anytime the temp gauge goes above halfway (yes running hot too). The noise and vibration is coming from where my center vents are back closer to the motor. Keep in mind it's not leaking coolant anywhere. Now, what is causing that noise? And how do I fix it? It wasn't doing this until the pump installation.

SOURCE: replaced thermostat - still getting red light

sounds like a faulty sender unit not passing the right voltage which is causing the gauge to read high

Look around the sides of the motor. Aleros are famous for faulty pan gaskets. Ours has been in the shop twice for this. If the mechanic doesn't get it put in just right it will continue to leak.

Smell the coolant. Is there any hint of gas smell? Also look at oil, any coffee coloring indicates problems.

Hello Taz..might check the converter to make sure the exhaust system does not have excessive backpressure. Also make sure the electronic cooling fans are cycling...they should kick in and out. They are tied into the A/C system circuit with a relay.
The 3.1L and 3.4L V-6 Engine (VINs J, E - RPOs LG8, LA1) were known to have intake gasket failure. This was due to a bad gasket that was designed by GM...it had nylon in it...Over 400,000 of these were sold in Canada alone. The gasket has since been redesigned and torque specs recalculated. If you replace the manifold gaskets follow these guidelines.

Install a new design intake manifold gasket. The material used in the gasket has been changed in order to improve the sealing qualities of the gasket. When replacing the gasket, the intake manifold bolts must also be replaced and torqued to a revised specification. The new bolts will come with a pre-applied threadlocker on them.

Notice

An oil leak may result if the vertical bolts are not tightened before the diagonal bolts.


Diagonal bolts may require a crows foot to tighten.

Tighten

1. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).

2. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).

3. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 13 N.m (115 lb in).

4. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).

Good luck...i hope this helps.

Does anybody have a video link on how to flush the cooling system on a GM 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl motor? I need a vid for this particular motor cause mine is still overheating & i have looked everywhere.


flushing a cooling system is the same method as any other motor

do it without the thermostat fitted
or water pump opening

sacrifice an old radiator hose to adapt a garden hose fitting
for radiator flush

air in system fix
your thermostat housing has no air bleed valve
no top radiator cap

old school way
heater on full
run motor till thermostats fully open
burp radiator hoses
wait till water is running up into over flow bottle without bubble
replace cap
turn off heater
correct level in over flow bottle

why still over heating
you fitted everything i would have ... yet still overheat
possibles
leaking inlet manifold gaskets
hose clamps loose
cooling fans spinning too slow
thermostatic fan switch faulty
aluminum radiator is a big one
air ..fins bent or some water channels blocked

or possible head gasket leak

did you try replacing the coolant temp sensor? because i have a 2000 intrigue and it does the same thing... im eliminating possiblities... next after that is the radiator and water pump... just changed the thermostat and flushed the system but does the same thing... so the sensor is next.

most likely heater core and to check if the water pump working..allow vehicle to warm up enough for thermostat to open and check for circulation in the fluid inside the radiator..if see it..water pump works.

The Heater in the car works but does not get warm.


1. Check the engine thermostat (see the temp gauge). Replace thermostat if necessary.
2. Flush the cooling installation in reverse flow direction, and change the coolant.
3. Bleed correctly the cooling system.
4. Clean inside the heater core by flushing in reverse flow direction. Check for leaks. Remove and change it if necessary.
5. Check the water pump & drive belt. Replace if necessary.

My 2000 old 3.5 l intrigue overheats at 1500 rpms and below. I have changed throttle body gasket, thermostat and water pump and it still is overheating. Where do I go next.


The orange antifreeze that is used is know to gel up and after a few years when the mixture is no longer 50/50, the antifreeze will crystallize and plug up water journals and jackets. The orange antifreeze has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles and any longer will have the cooling system plugged up with crystals. Best thing to do is to flush out the cooling system with Preston coolant flush, use the dry powder to flush the system out and follow the instructions, then replace the coolant with 50/50 (water/antifreeze) mix. If your not sure how to mix, you can buy them premixed. This should help keep your cooling system 100%, keep me posted. Be glad to help get your car running 100% and you could also replace the temperature sensor, it's located at the manifold just in front of the thermostat housing. The tip of the sensor may have crystal formation, giving it a false reading.

a bad heater core will just leak. it could leak alot. do you ever smell antifreeze? check the coolant level. it can get pretty low before it will overheat. the thermostat should be ok but there could be corrosion. when you had the water pump replaced was the cooling system flushed? 2001, its probably due for a flush. what coolant does it take? (green or orange)
