Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

I bought my son a 1999 oldsmobile intigue GL with the 3800.. The car's stereo was stolen, and the temperature and tachometer gauge is not working. I am not sure if it was related to the stereo being stolen but I'm concerned with him driving it without being able to see the engine temperature.

I would see if the gauges are connected at the harness behind the instrument panel. But, that can be time consuming to take apart that part.

There is probably a separate temperature light that indicates when the engine is too hot. If not, then just make sure that the coolant level is high enough, that the thermostat is not stuck closed, and the fans turn on when the engine gets to normal operating temperature or when it is hot.

GM vehicles from the 1990s can go a long time before overheating occurs due to leaks or break downs in the cooling system.

If there is a slow leak in the cooling system, though, I would fix the problem before a lack of feedback causes an overheat condition in the engine of the vehicle.

check coolant level, make sure car have half antifreeze and half water,if coolant level okay, car overheating when starting up driving is faulty thermostat and radiator cap.if car over heat while sitting in long line of traffic.your coolant temperature sensor could be faulty, or coolant fan fuse blowed or relay failed.hot wire cooling fan if it works, problem is the wiring or pcm, if every thing working okay.check engine oil if look like milk shake or you have a lot white heavy smoke coming out the exhaust, you have a blowed head gasket.
