    My 97 deville is overheating

    I had my radiator changed(which had a huge leak), then I changed my thermostat. I tested it out and my temp fluctuated between 217 and 233 for a pretty long time. I knew it wasn't right, but I took it to the e way. When I hit about 60, it started going up to the high 240's and never came down. "white steam" does come from my exhaust. Sound like a head gasket? Anyone? Did I buy a lemon?

    Dead thread, but moved from the basement of the "other engines" forum.

    You bought a lemon.
