Sounds like you have an air pocket in the cooling system. Take the radiator cap off the radiator(not when engine is hot) and then start the car. As air moves through the lines you will see the antifreeze level go down. Let it run and pour coolant into the radiator until it stays full. then put on the radiator cap and fill the overflow tank to the right level and I hope that fixes your problem.

Good Luck

Check your radiator for external and internal obstructions (leaves, bugs etc on the a/c condenser or leaves between the condenser and radiator, rust or calcium deposits inside the radiator core all cause loss of heat transfer)
Also make sure that the system is full and that the electric fan and the clutch fan are operating properly. (electric fan should come on just above normal operating temp and clutch fan should not be "freewheeling" above temp either)
Note: If you need to have the radiator flushed, do it separately from the engine. especially the inline 6 and 4 engines rust up inside and if the system is flushed with the radiator connected, the debris will pack up inside it and actually can worsen the condition.

get a Haynes manual and see if the water hose has a bleeder screw on a line that is up higher than most.
Usually a small line that runs over the top of the motor. I had this happen on a chevy Malibu and I just had to open the screw while running (but not hot) to bleed the air out of the line.

Engine hot, oil dip stick too hot to touch gages all fine no problems with it just got raditor flushed thought that was the problem


Your dipstick is supposed to be hot. The oil runs over the hot mechanisms and back into the pan and cooler oil cycles through again. The warmer your engine the better it will run. ( don't want it to overheat though) my car runs about halfway between the middle and three fourths mark on the thermostat. And it runs great. Hope this helps!:)

Cooling Fan running


check your coolant level for anti freeze strength and also check your thermostat is opening fully, to do this take out the thermostat and place it in a bold of hot water you will see it closing then place it in a cold bowl of water an you should see it opening, Also check your temp sender for a few bucks you may as well change it out though.

I have a 2007 colorado LS w/2.9L and it is running warmer than it used to. It used to run between the 1/4 and the 1/2 mark on the temp gauge but now rides above the 1/2 mark even though I have replaced the...


All that. The mechanic should have put your truck on a computer that will read what the temp is. It would have probably read that your truck was running at normal temp. You could have had a thermostat that was stuck partially open causing a lower than normal reading. temp gauges should read about the halfway mark. Seeing how you have a 180 t stat, your temp should be from 170 to 200 this is normal. Find another mechanic, I think you may have been taken.

2003 chev impala 3.8 the temp gauge goes up 1/4 of the way..what shd the normal reading go to I wld think 1/2 way on the gauge? I just think the air shd be hotter when set on hi


During the winter time the engine may not produce enough heat to go half way. You can modify this by installing a hotter thermostat. But I would not go more that 20 degrees F though, or you could create issues for summer driving.

The gauge can very well be "lying" to you.

As a precaution, I would do a routine cooling system service on it. This includes completely flushing the coolant, replacing the thermostat and radiator cap (believe it or not, a bad cap can cause issues too).

On the few Fords I have owned, mine were always in the middle, or to the left of the middle.

Motor homes should run cooler actually, beings as they tend to have heavy duty large capacity cooling systems.
