2001 Buick Century overheating

Asked by Sep 07, 2018 at 05:36 PM about the 2001 Buick Century Custom Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car keeps overheating and shutting off.
Sometimes it will crank back up and
sometimes i have to wait 20-30 minutes. I
have checked the cooling system and it still
has water when this happens. The radiator
cap doesnt even get hot. Just the engine. I
just recently replaced the temperature gage
and dont know what else it could be.

1 Answer


Try bleeding air from system like this remove cap from overflow tank fill with antifreeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle you will notice level in tank start to rise this is normal once thermostat starts to open level in tank will drop add more antifreeze to full mark then put cap back on.
