If the temp gauge is reading 160 when the engine is warmed up, the problem could be air in the cooling system, a faulty sending unit, or gauge.

    I think I will go with air in the system. Assuming the stat is installed correctly and not defective, the sending unit could be sending false readings to the gauge especially if there is air in the system. If you have access to a scanner you could check engine temp using the temp sensor for the computer.

Have a 96 Buick Park Ave. In Aug I changed the thermostat because the temp gauge showed the motor was running cold. nothing changed. In Sept I had the water pump replaced because it started leaking. M


Is your 3800 producing normal heat? If so, the temp sensor is probably bad...If not, try replacing the radiator cap...if your system has air trapped inside, it usually runs hot, not cold...the heat is the key to functioning properly for you...Your radiator is a 4 stage huge system that normally cools very well...if you have heat, I still think your temp sensor is bad...ask to see one at your parts store, will help you to locate it. Hope this helps.
