The easiest way to see if a head gasket is blown is to check the oil, if it is light brown and milky looking then the head gasket is blown.

My 1998 Saturn would always overheat. I had replaced the radiator twice and all of the hoses but it continued to happen. The people at Saturn did not know the problem. I brought it to a raditor place and the replaced the gauge that reads the temperature and fixed the problem. The gauge was reading at a much lower temperature than the car really was so the fan would not turn on to cool down the car causing it to overheat. This might be your problem.

There is a chemical that can be added to the coolant that will expose exhaust fumes. The head gasket may be fine, but overheating will endanger it.

overheating could also be caused by a bad engine coolant temperature sensor, or a bad thermostat, possibly even a bad PCM.

How will you know if your 1992 Cadillac eldorado is overheating?

Look at your thermometer. Or you can check for steam or smoke coming from the engine. Look and see how much coolant you have. And basically you can tell if it is overheating just by putting your hand by the engine after you drive it for a while. if it is abnormally hot, pretty good chance it is overheating.
