1998 Cadillac Catera Q&A

1998 Cadillac Catera Question: My engine is hot after 40 min. & won't start??

I've replaced the starter, valve cover gasket, serpentine belt, ect... Don't understand why it runs hot & won't start for sometimes over an hour?? I'm a female & don't need to be dead in the water in the middle of the night.. -
Answer 1
have you checked the radiator cap? if this is leaking or won't hold the pressure it tends to overheat. a new one doesn't cost much maybe 12-15$. -
