Overheating 1993 Buick Skylark

Yesterday my 1993 Skylark began overheating when we were idling. We were able to cool it down by simply driving home on the freeway. Today we changed the antifreeze. Now it seems the fan wont come on, and it is running at about 230 degrees, even while driving. What can this be?

It could be a fuse or fan relay, or a stuck thermostat, i will recomend to aply stright power to radiator fan to see if works, if don't replace fan and fuse, but if does, then it might be the thermostat, one very easy way to test the cooling fan system is by unpluging the coolant sensor with the car runing, if fan come on whit car runing and sensor disconected, the the system is ok, and might be a bad sensor, or stuck closed or open thermostat. please leave feedback if this take care of your problem

Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

1994 Buick Skylark overheating


This vehicle uses a 195 degree thermostat. Standard operating temperature is about 210. If the vehicle was running 160 before then the thermostat was probably stuck open before.
