Asked by Apr 06, 2016 at 03:25 PM about the 1998 Cadillac Eldorado

Question type: General

Is it bad that I took the thermostat out on a 98
eldorado? It keeps running hot. Replaced water
pump and radiator. I heard taking thermostat out it
will help it from running hot so that's what I did.
Then it started steaming and leaking

1 Answer

Sounds like you may have a bad head gasket... Taking out the thermostat did work on older cars in cooler climates
