96 Seville SLS still getting hot


Recommended Posts

Honestly, I don't know what I did or didn't do, but after replacing the new radiator hoses, thermostat and cap, my emergency brake pedal works now. But thanks again for your responses and diagrams. The car seems to be running much cooler now. I think it was the thermostat I had replaced. I replaced that one with a GM model, and the car seems much cooler.I am sitting in the car now in 90 degree heat with a/c blowing and the temperature is at 203. Thanks again!

I changed the thermostat last weekend. I'll check the belt and advise. And the outside temps were 103 when it reached 226. Thanks.

Clear something up for me, on 7/24 you said you changed the thermostat last weekend, did you just change it again?, this time using an AC Delco?

Yes. I bought a thermostat from Autozone. That is the first one I had and replaced on 7/17. I replaced that with the AC Delco last night.   

I will say this, the guru who was a Northstar engineer, was adament about using OEM on 2 items, the thermostat and the EGR valve!  He stated they were carefully calibrated and validated.
