Engine Cooling problem
1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
I just recently got this Cutlass, and my neighbor and I have been working on it to get it going. First we had to change the battery which was easy. Then we found out after driving the car for about 10 minutes, it would red line heat up, so we decided to change the thermostat. After the painful replacement, we flushed the coolant and hoses out, and gave her another shot. Given, I've driven for over 30-40 minutes just cruising around and the car has NOT gotten to red line. I guess that's a plus, although the car does still run pretty high. About a bar higher than half way, what I'm wondering is will this eventually work it's self out? Or is there another fix I need to make? Thanks so much for any help.
have the same problem?
