My 97 Deville Concours still runs real strong I just make sure that it has coolant. It runs with the temp gauge right in the middle (normal) when driving at regular speeds 50-65 mph. It does start to run hot when driven hard. Any suggestions?

How hot? 278! Holy shit Batman, what were you thinking? Pressurize the cylinders with shop air and see what you've got.

eveything seems AOK right now......i hope it keeps runnin good!!!!!! wish me luck....all i did was put a new presuure cap on so that the arrow lines up with the overflow hose and flushed the system and put some K W Block sealer in the hoses, drained , flushed and then refilled with Dexcool and some wetter water. Please pray for me that i fixed the problem.....thanks!
