Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
I just fixed the head gasket, replaced the thermostat but the car is still over heating the water pump is not leaking but temp red lines in ten minutes
should I replace the water pump? what else can it be please help.
Raise the front of the car as high as possible with a jack then run the engine and leave the radiator cap off, the air in the system should go to the high point which will be the radiator, don't over heat the engine, after the system is warm put the cap on and fill the recovery tank all the way up, run until it starts to get hot turn if off and leave it up jacked up well it cools, running a hose on the radiator will speed this up. This should cure the bleeding issue or really help.
