Question about 1995 Ford Escort
Water pump, radiaitor have been changed,bars leaks added,block seal added. the car will run in park forever without over heating. but when put in gear and driven the temp gauge rises and falls with the acceleration of the car.
Check your transmission fluid and filter. If it is low or not getting cooled properly it will cause similar problems.

Bar leak will fix a leak but stop up radiator cores and heater core when engine run hot when accelerating. engine coolant system has a restriction not allowing coolant circulate to remove heat.when engine overheating you will lose power and compression.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

It could be a faulty thermostat. Did it do the same thing before u replaced the t-stat? It sounds like it's sticking closed, then all of a sudden it opens, coolant flows correctly. I'd consider changing it again. Check to make sure parts store is giving u the correct temperature thermostat also. Maybe it's too high for your Ford, delaying the opening.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

SOURCE: Temperature gauge fluctuates
First of all you have a bad heater core that needs to be replaced. Second you may have a bad temperature sensor. Make sure the radiator if full of water

Did you burp the system? these engines have a problem getting all the air out of the system. Look for a bleed valve near the thermostat and crack it openwhen the engine is cold. I believe they also had a problem with the head gasket on that year if it over heated. good luck be sue to get the air out of the heater and the radiator they can be a problem.
