What causes a 1985 Chevy Caprice to over heat?
I would first start with the cheap stuff first and then go up. I would start with the Thermostat. If the problem is still there after u changed it I would then look to the Radiator to see what kind of condition that it is in. (LOOK FOR RUST OR ANTIFREEZE JUST NOT FLOWING) Then I would check the water pump. With a car like the 85 Chevy it really cant be much wrong with it especially if it is running smooth.
You first need to get an oven. Then seal the oven door with silicon glue so no air can get out. Then turn on the oven, a few minutes later, turn the oven off. Since heat causes expansion of Air, it makes more pressure, and pressure causes heat. Then the heat causes expansion, expansion causes pressure, pressure causes heat. and the cycle goes on and on..........
