When it comes to engine tempetures 180 degrees is when the thermostat =should open allowing good circulation to cool the engine. now at a 50/50 ratio of water to glycol coolant the engine can run as hot as 240 degrees before it reaches the boiling point and causing damage. now most gauges in vehicles read 190-210 degrees when the needle is at the top center. nothing to realy be alarmed about. However if your engine is steaming over then that is something to beconcerned about. also if you have a bad temp sensor your not going to get an acurate reading. if the wires are broken or the plug is bad then you won't get a good reading either. in higway use the airflows over the radiator at a higher rate so the needle should drop if it doesn't then just check the connection to the temp sensor if they are good then just replace the sensor because it' faulty. please rate this....thanks

    hey what's with this tft I gave you good solution to your problem and you did not even bother to even take my advice. I'm a certified mechanic and not some schmuck behind a keyboard. you expect a fair solution and I expect a fair rating. I have read the other post and it was a valid possibilty. incidently prior to your head gawsket change the needle should never have been near the bottom of the gauge to begin with. this tells me either your temp gauge is bad or your guage is bad those are the only 2 options because you never stated that the vehicle is overheating right now. please reconsider the rating

What is the spacific temp for this car threw the factorys specs. check those and if it is still running hot you need to check your fans and just to be safe replace your water pump. i know it cost but still it could fix the problem. if that dont work check the thermostat they can stick open and or closed. you may also need to have your oil and filter changed. DONT USE PENNZOIL it is hard on a motor after long term use.

2001 lincoln navigator with 73,000 miles has water in the oil.will changing all major upper and lower engine gaskets fix the problem?

The likely leak locations are intake gasket, head gasket, a crack on the intake manifold, on the head, or engine block.
Proper diagnosing would help with tel tale signs. A good giveaway is overheating of the engine.

Sounds like you have a leaking cylinder head gasket, have a shop run further diagnostics.

I have oil in my water (radiator)

If you have oil in your coolant, check if the car is not overheating, check as well if there is no grey particules in your oil, all symptoms would be damaged head gasket or at worst cracked engine block or cylinder head.

Overheating but was told head gasket is gone. Now that the thermostat has been changed car cranks up & still overheats can drive for at least 3 blocks before temp gauge goes up. Would the car be able...

Hi...if your head gasket is blown it would have to be replaced to stop the over heating problem. And...YES... car will crank and move with blown head gasket.

Car overheating radiator was changed but still running hot.

Check the Thermostat for proper function and the head gasket for any leaks. If everything's ok then its could be something inside the Cylinders block. Good luck

just to let u know they probably didnt plane the head (which means to make it straight again) which means they didnt straighten the warp out from where it over heated. alot of people just throw another head gasket on and dont have the head machined.its usually like 60 us dollars to 100 us dollars to have a head machined but well worth the extra effort to have it done right try a new thermostat also. usually when a shop cuts corners u end up with a car that still runs but runs hotter something to remember next time good luck
