rvaddict Posted July 2, 2005 Report Share Posted July 2, 2005 Well, it does over heat. I have a 1994 Seville SLS. The past three days, it ran fine the temp stays usually around 205 to 225 degrees. Yesterday it was 95 degrees outside and I let the car sit for about 20 minutes with the a/c running so my kids would not bake while I was standing outside having a chat. Then, the car started beeping and said "engine hot" and then "stop engine" and it shut itself down automatically. After it cooled off, I restarted and drove home -- no problem but you can bet I watched the temperature the whole way. Today, my wife was driving home with no traffic in front of her and the car suddenly overheated again, this time dumping a lot of coolant out the overflow at the radiator cap on the coolant reservoir. This time, I drove it home after it had cooled off, but it heated up real quick and I barely made it. I have heard that these cars have trouble with the head gasket going bad. Would this problem be indicative of that? At this point in the game would it be any help to add the coolant sealant from GM? How can I know it is not the head gasket? Do these cars have a normal thermostat like old cars have, and it is easy enough to replace to see if that is the issue? Help>? Suggestions? Thanks so much.
