Engine Cooling problem
1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 174000 miles
car has been sitting up for approximately year and a half. Replaced water pump, thermostat, new reservoir cap, flushed and pressurized system, flushed radiator. Was told its a small leak between engine and firewall maybe freeze plug, not enough to cause problem, car still overheating when idling or driving, was told it might have air in it, lifted up on reservoir side still overheating. Fans working but its blowing cold air, no coolant is going through engine. Engine temperature was 246 °, water pump 112 °, thermostat 90 °, its no mix off oil\anti-freeze. Was told it might have an pin hole in head gasket so ask for a pressure test at dealer, its no more oldsmobile dealers took to an pontiac dealer last year who did the pressure test and flush, what can I do now at a lost. Just spent over $500, should pressure test it, if I to do a head job or replace engine.
