Check the thermostat first and all connections of the the hoses for possible leaks and worst case it may be the water pump and if this is a 4 it can be expensive to repair depending on whether it`s a SOHC or DOHC the latter of these is a major job.For better info on what this will take log on to Auto Zones web site and click on repair.

Replaced the water pump on a 95 oldsmobile cutlass ciera and there is still a leak


Then the water pump was not the problem? Hook up a cooling system pressure tester and go under the car and watch to see where the coolant is leaking out.

There is a coolant leak in my 97' oldsmobile achieva sl


If the coolant is leaking into the vehicle, I assume the passenger side, then more than likely it is the heater core. There are two possible fixes, the first, is to remove the dashboard, costly. Or, second bypass the heater core, the only problem with that is, you won't have any heat in the passenger compartment. So depending where you live that is a call of personal comfort. That should FixYa.

Cant find where my radiator cap to add fluid


just fill from the coolant reservoir; the radiator itself doesn't actually have a cap, so the pressure release valve is on the cap to the coolant reservoir. Make sure to tighten it well, though, because the cap is plastic and known to leak a little fluid if not tightened all the way.

a few things come to mind from reading your problem, first your right about the air, it could still have some in it, i know from experance they can be a bear to get all out. secound if your sure you got all air out, the only other thing it could be is a blowen head gasget. third if you suspect head gasget do a coolent system pressure test, and watch for leak down.
