Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora
This is jjajga617 found problem. Make sure the small air deflector isn't broken or missing. I put a new one this solved the problem.

I had that problem with the 98 aurora that I got last week. My mechanic opened the coolant reservoir and let it boil over until it stopped. Since then, no problem. It doesn't go above about 190 in stop and go traffic. He suggested that the previous owner overfilled it to get rid of the "low coolant" warning on the dash. I'll be flushing the radiator soon and will replace the coolant sensor then to fix that problem.

I have had this problem with my 98 aurora and have replaced all the same components. Temp gauge routinely shows 200 on highway (Fine) but in the city in stop and go will get to around 245. I installed a switch to manually turn on the cooling fans by connecting the ground to pin 86 in the relay for the fan(s). Otherwise the fans will not turn on to 245. This fix works but would like to know an actual solution.
