Engine Cooling problem
2000 Oldsmobile Alero 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles
The engine overheats and I can't understand how its happening.
For a period of about a month I kept losing coolant and couldn't find where. Then it started overheating.
To this point I have replaced the water pump. Thermostat and pressure cap on the reservoir.
The engine temp is fine at idle but there is no heat in the car. The trouble begins when the RPM's are increased. Water is blown out the overflow and the temp rises. Before this happens there also doesn't seem to be any pressure buildup when the cap is removed.
have the same problem?
