Have a 97 GA SE, The icon lighted to add coolant to the system, but after doing so, the car got hot, started registering upper end and red light came on. It is blowing hot air, so the Napa guy advised it's probably not thermostat which is ugly to get to on this car according to the manual.
I filled with 50/50, and later just water to see if it could be water pump or smething else. The coolant resevoir does not maintain a "cool full" level. Drove the car and it stayed at "high normal", but didn't move up to the "hot zone", but I am worried. Any ideas????
