Question about Pontiac Montana
Needle goes to red but do not smell coolant
Was the temp gauge doing this before the repairs ?
Does the engine feel hot when the gauge is reading hot ?
If the engine really is hot, it could be a blockage in the radiator or elsewhere. You could also have air in the system and not enough liquid coolant.

It is probably the problem. To make shure that need to change the gaskets, one of the symptoms use to be thet the temp rises when you are running at speed 50+ average, where is supposed that the car gets a lot of air due by the speed and nobody thinks that will be overheated.

check the coolant level fiirst...if that is low it wont give you any heat.....to change the thermostat you have to follow the top radiator hose to the engine.at the send of it you will see a clamp take it loose...then you will see the thermostat housing its held in place by 2 bolts . once you remove them you have the thermostat....make sure you clean all the old gasket material off both the housing and mount.also make sure you get a new gasket.

Yes, it can be removed and run without the thermostat. However, your gas mileage will suffer and the heater may not work very well.

your clutch on cooling fan could be faulty or your radiators cores is blocked and restricted.also grilled could be blocked restricting air flow.
