Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
I have no heat in the car, the temp gauge goes up and down betwwen 200 and 260. When it reaches 260, the red light comes on and I have to pull over and let the car rest for 20 minutes. However, the engine is not over heating but it thinks it is. Do I need a new thermostat or is it something else?
You didn't say what kind of car it was, but with no heat and high readings on the gauge, my guess would be your coolant level. If that isn't the problem, then try replacing the thermostat. Other possibilities would be a defective temp sensor, or a bad electric fan on the radiator.
