Re: '97 V6 car overheating?
Heres a couple simple things to check.
First Ill ask is it over heating just at low speed? Or on the highway too? If just at low speed, let the car idle and see if the electric fan kicks on.
If its over heating all the time, another thing Im pretty sure you can do is with the engine cold, open the coolant resevoir cap, idle the engine and look in the resivoir with a flash light and you should be able to see the coolant moving around. If not then your water pump is not working. Im pretty sure that test works with this car maybe someone can confirm.
