Question about 2003 Pontiac Montana
Not an everyday occurance, but sometimes temp gauge runs into the red within 5min of driving. radiator cap is not hot when this happens. most times vehicle can sit less than 5min, start again and read normal. coolant level is full. twice have drivrn short distances with gauge showing in the red but no idiot lights ever came on and vehicle ran as normal. does this sound like the vehicle is really over heating or could this be a false reading?
Its definitly a bad reading, you would know if your vehicle is overheating, you can usually smell it right away.I would say its your temperature gauge sending unit is defective, check the wires to see if they are well connected or broken. ask a backyard mechanic for assistance.
