Engine Overheating Due to Leaking Headgasket on Oldsmobile Intrigue

Overheating of the engine may cause the cylinder head to expand, severely straining the head bolts and damaging the threads in the engine block. This commonly results in a blown head gasket. Our technicians tell us the engine block threads must be repaired before the cylinder head is reinstalled.

2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue 111,000 mi,
Nothings leakn no water in oil but it starts getting hot with 10-15 minutes
Engine overheats and water must be going into cylinders because it isn't in the oil. it is as if the thermostat is stuck open because the water in the tank boils. I am repairing this myself and saving the 2000.00 price tag . Besides you can do it for the cost of head gaskets and thermostat and even the switch that turns on the engine fans for a very reasonable price and have it done over the weekend....
