car wont start after i changed the thermostat

Asked by Nov 26, 2016 at 06:35 PM about the 1999 Pontiac Bonneville 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the car was over filled with oil. it was driven
about 20 miles before i discovered the
problem. i took it home and changed the oil.it
did not overheat at any point it has started fine
since but the temperature has been going up
quickly. so today i changed the thermostat and
seal and re filled it with coolant then it wouldnt
start anymore. also i could tell the thermostat
was the problem because the radiator hose
going to it was vacuuming closed when it was
running _ it just started running weird and all i
had done is added a little oil.so i checked it out.
and immedeatly went home and changed oil
and got to correct level i checked to make sure
i hadent un plugged anything and i
disconnected the battery for a while to reset
the computer. but it started 20 min before i
changed the thermostat
