Hope you didn't run your car much when it overheated. this could mean trouble if you did. But as suggested, replace the thermostat.drain the coolant if it has any left, below the thermostat level. It is located at the end of one of the radiator hoses . the housing has a bleeder screw at the outlet of the housing. then remove the housing. the thermostat is located underneath. be careful to replace it the same direction. Clean the contact points on the engine and the housing.And place a little bit of silicone gasket sealer on the gasket and the housing . Make sure the thermostat is settled on the engine part. Carefully replace the housing. And reinstall everything back. refill with coolant half/half water and coolant.Start the car and let it heat up. Then bleed the system with the bleeder screw turning it counter clockwise until all that comes out is coolant. refill radiator again and repeat. Until radiator is full.

1962 Corvette. Replaced voltage regulator. Temp gauge now reading hot. Temp increases with RPM increase. At idle 180. Increase RPM, and Amp 220. Heat gun true 175. Help


What is the system charging voltage? An over voltage condition could cause this. Why not just hook up an after market gauge? The factory gauge is junk and as cheap as they could make it. And yes I have owned Vett's.

Could possibly need a new thermostat, the thermostat opens and closes depending on the heat of the coolant. maybe also check your heating core. as well as the quality of you coolant.

No, the radiator fan(s) are not turning on. You can check this by turning the AC system on which should automatically start the fan(s). If nothing, look for a blown fuse/defective relay.
