2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Q&A
2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Question: overheating
my temp. gauge went to the top and I pulled over and shut car off. Checked coolant overflow and it was fine. Was low on oil so I put 2 quarts in. Started to drive-3 minutes latter same thing. Upon checking fans are not working. Replaced relays and still nothing. when we connected a wire to the fan motor and the other end to the positive cable on battery, fan worked-did the same to the other motor and fan worked. could the problem be the thermostat control sensor? If not, what else could it be? - chrisintampa
Really need to get a wiring diagram and trace the cooling fan system, other wise your are just guessing, which will empty your check book before the car is fixed. Try Alldatadiy.com for info. - dandd
Dan is the man,,, got somewhat the same problem and hopefully can give some minor fixes that fixed mine(enough to get the fans on) Relays and fuses .....I found one of my fuses in the box in the engine was blown,,the fans now run ONLY when I put AC on... THe Temp sensor is about 14 dollars at Autozone and is easy to do,, need a deep socket 19 mm or 3/4 deep. BUT to check,,, with car running un plug the temp sensor, should turn both fans on high speed,,,if not check all fuses and swap all relays.....btw How many volts do those fans run on,,,considering making a switch to turn on the fans manually without the ac in my car? - mackieman1967

The water pump may develop a coolant leak resulting in an engine overheating condition.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
