    Check around for new prices....On my 1986 Olds 88, it had the heavy duty radiator, which had two fans hooked up to it. Being in Colorado, there should have been more vehicles sold with heavy duty radiators...don't know if that option was available, but check out junk yards and see what's involved in a conversion.

    Years ago, I took my 1982 'Caprice' to Oregon (from Kansas); before the trip, I replaced the water pump, radiator, and fan clutch (heavy duty). I went thru several mountain passes, like Ft Collins to Laramie on old 287....didn't have a problem....when your engine is running higher temps, your radiator needs to be in top shape.

    I have no idea your typical driving up there, but if I was doing lots of UPs and Downs, its a no brainer...penny wise, pound foolish.

    Very seldom...most of my driving is country/highway miles, and it never comes on when doing county/highway miles; do note, I removed the AC Condenser, and have a newer radiator.

    When I am in town on a hot day, it does come on, when stuck in traffic not moving (traffic light). Very seldom does it come on.

    E10 fuel, which has been around for a number of years, generally will clean up all fuel tanks...if in fact there is rust in the tank, it suggests previous owner(s) never filled up the tank, and left it half empty all the time.

    I don't know which part of Colorado you are from, but generally, it is quite dry up there, year round...so, unless the vehicle went thru many frosty nights, there should not be much moisture within the tank, especially when E10 fuel was being used. Hence, unless the vehicle sat and sat, I can't see how water got into the tank.

    Lets start over.

    Complaint - Car ONLY QUITS running when "car gets hot," or on "long drives."

    Potential Causes:

    1. Electrical
    2.. Mechanical
    3. Fuel

    If you are hearing funny noises coming from fuel tank before vehicle stalls out, but not at other times when vehicle is running...then replace fuel pump (if vapor locking is not the cause).

    Make sure your fuel tank is filled up...and buy some premium fuel for awhile...in theory, vapor locking should not be happening. If your return fuel to tank is "heating up" the fuel in the tank, then vapor locking may be the issue, and this might cause funny noises coming from fuel pump...but I've never heard of this issue before.

    If your vehicle is setup like F-Bodies are, then consider this article:

    Did GM include a thermo shutdown mode in your vehicle?


    >10 miles over speed going up the mountains

    Get a new radiator, and thermostat...and make sure fan(s) are working...buy new temperature sensor (for computer's sensor).

    What Thermostat temperature is supposed to be used? 195 Degree?

    My gut feeling is your radiator is shot or somebody has put a higher temp thermo

    I have no idea if GM inserted code that shuts down your motor when too high of a temp is reached...anybody know here? I've heard later GM vehicles do have a thermo shutdown mode.
