While driving the coaster 2008 ,once I reach 140, the temperature gauge goes up ,but when I stop it goes down.

Issue? 140 is low, could be problem if you need heat. but otherwise? Mileage may suffer if temp is too low. Sounds like the engine thermostat is missing or not functioning properly.

Speedometer not functioning properly, diesel gauge and radio not functioning properly also.


The gauge problems are pretty common on the 03-06 Silverados, it's caused by failing gauge motors inside the instrument cluster. Check this page for more on how to get it fixed - Silverado Instrument Cluster Repair

Heat not work

First, check your engine coolant(antifreeze). If you are out there will be none circulating through your heater core.

Second, when you attempt to turn it on is there any air being blown into the cab of the vehicle? If not check the fuses for the blower motor. If these are functioning properly next check the electrical connection to the blower motor itself. If these are fine and properly attached check to see (using a voltmeter) if there is power at these connections. If not you may have an electrical issue, if so you may need a new blower motor.

If air of any temperature is blowing into the cab when you switch it on then you need to look to your heating/cooling system. While driving is your temperature gauge reading that your vehicle reaches and maintains normal operating temperature? You may have a block or leak within your system, maybe even the heater core itself. You may also wish to take a look at your thermostat. If this is not functioning properly it may also impede your vehicle's ability to operate properly.

Heater is not putting out very much heat.

Camrys are picky when it comes to a properly functioning engine thermostat. If this is stuck open some, not only will you get little heat, your engine will get all gunked up with varnish. This is the first thing I would check. (Read the engine gauge - if it comes up to temp after no more than 5 minutes of driving, then it should be good.) If it is not this, try cleaning your coolant system, making sure the heat setting is full on while doing the cleaning procedure. (Prestone makes this product.)
