Asked by Jun 13, 2015 at 01:16 PM about the 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car starts out good and then runs hot after
a half a mile

1 Answer


The running hot is possibly low coolant, bad radiator, bad hoses, bad thermostat, bad water pump or maybe even blown head gasket. To find oil leaks I have found that a small inspection mirror helps out a lot.
