Hi, I own a 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora, it has that monster Northstar v8 engine. First, the car started to overheat, I thought maybe it was the Thermostat, changed the thermostat, wasn't it. Next, I changed the water pump, that wasn't it, still overheats. The radiator is fine, no problems with that. My next guess is the Coolant Temp Sensor, I am planning on replacing this part. Do you think that replacing this part would fix the overheating issue?
