It is possible that you may have an air lock in the system. You need to drain the rad and remove the upper most heater hose from the heater core and raise the hose up high . Fill the rad until coolant comes out of the heater core pipe. Carefully reattach the heater hose. Fill the rad slowly allowing trapped air to escape.This may take a while. Once the rad is full put a catch basin on the floor under the rad filler neck.Start the car and let it run to operating temperature.Allow the expanding coolant fall into the basin.Once you see circulation in the rad you can slowly top the rad off.once you do this replace the rad cap and fill the reservoir bottle 3/4 ways to the top. Shut the car off and let it cool off filling the bottle as necessary.Hopefully this will cure your problem. Good luck :-)

Temp Light Comes On And Temp Gauge Drops To Cold. Then Go Back To Normal. Not Over Heating


Possible defective temperature sensor or wiring issue. Check to see if the heat coming out of the vents stays at a constant temperature when this problem is happening. If it goes from hot to warm/cold when the temp guage is messing up, you may have a head gasket isssue developiing

Slide levers like that usually move a cable. When they will not stay in place it usually means whatever they move is binding up. I suspect your heater valve is binding.

My temperature guage stays in the middle, is this ok?


Yes, the temperature gauge should normally stop in the middle, between the cold and hot points on the gauge. When the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed and will keep recirculating the coolant in the engine block until it warms up sufficiently. Then the temperature of the warm coolant will cause the thermostat to open the channel to the radiator to get rid of excess heat, which should stop the coolant from over heating. So the effect of the thermostat keeps the coolant at a fairly stable temperature. When the coolant runs low, it can't transfer enough heat to the radiator and the coolant and engine then over heats. Watch for radiator leaks under your car after you have been driving it. If the coolant goes low again fairly quickly you could have a leak in a hose or the radiator itself.

DEFROST AND/OR HEATER TAKES LONG TIME TO HEAT UP. THEN IT'LL STAY HOT FOR 15 TO 20 MINUTES THEN GET COLD. THEN IT'LL SLOWLY GET HOT AGAIN. SEEMS TO STAY HOT LONGER AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS.


Sounds like a sticking/stuck thermostat.
Does your truck have cooling fans? If so, they should NOT be running when cold. If they are, you have a bad thermo sensor. If you have a temperature guage, what is it doing when you go from cold to hot to cold again?

My tempeture gage is acting up. It will cool drop below cold and stay there for awhile. And eventually it will come back up.


You might have a bad temperature gauge switch or the electrical connection at that switch might be corroded, causing the erratic temperature gauge.

Probalby not, seeing that's what's telling your over heating. it wont be a bad idea to remove it (be carefull of hot fluid) and clean it off and put it back in. (wouldn't hurt anyways) but this problem is most likly a falty relay form the PCM to the fans. wireing might be corroed and need to be cleaned. check the fans for power and gorund with an omh meter.
