Overheating gage when stop & go -2004 chevy tahoe

natural for engine temp to rise in Traffic - Until Themostat opens ) cooling fan sensor kicks on fan . But Antifreeze is not just a Cold weather item . Coolant is Absolutely Necessary for Hot Days . You must be full to recovery bottle setting of cold when checked prior to start up . Coolant for your make / model is Reddish - Pink colour and should have a reading of -25 thats negative 25 degrees the Lower the Better even - 50 .. Why ?? - 50 is 50 %% antifreeze / Coolant Concentrate MIX Gives Hot weather cooling Ability or very cold weather starting / winter HEAT .

2001 Kia spectra thermostat. My heat went out and I am trying to trouble shoot the problem

Will Temp Gage Register any Temp? or is it just an Idiot Light?
If this is the case then You will need to run till it reaches Approximate Operating Temp, Generally 15 mins will get you there @ idle,Feel Hoses from Radiator, Are they HOT? then if you can reach Heater Hoses { usually 1/2 in/ 34 in hose } Are They HOT?, Are You getting Air out of the Vents? Is it Hot or Cold? Check AntiFreeze LVL's in Expansion Tank, Is it Full? or Empty? If Empty Fill With Recommended fluid Mixture

I put some 5w-30 oil in my car it ran fine...then once i get to the gas station and put some regular gas in it and it starts to shake and white smoke started to come out the tail pipe the temp gage started...

You have antifreeze leaking into the cylinders....and when the spark ignites the fuel in the cylinder, the antifreeze is in there also giving you the smoke....

What does all this mean?

More than likely, you have a blown head gasket.....or a cracked cylinder head.

1995 Buick regal- filled the coolant reservoir with antifreeze last Sunday to the cool temp line. (antifreeze was straight and not 50/50) checked the radiator and there was coolant all the way to the neck....

Check all around the intake manifold gasket for evidence of antifreeze. Also check your oil for evidence of coolant. The Dexcool antifreeze used in GM engines can cause the intake gaskets to deteriorate causing coolant leakage. Very difficult to detect.

97 sable no heat leaking antifreeze

You need the cooling system topped off and the system pressure tested to find the leak and repair it then everything should be ok.

Heater problems

Did you bleed the air oout of the cooling system - Their is a bleeding next to the therostat housing.

1 - When the vehicle is cold remove the rad(tank) cap and top up the level if needed

2 - start the vehicle with the rad cap off and leave the car run until you can see that the therostat has openned(look in tank/rad) to see fuild flow then open the bleeder slowly to let any air out of the cooling system. Once you have coolant flowing out of the bleeder close the bleeder and install the rad/tank cap.

NOTE - Be careful with the engine running and hot Coolant.

You make need to bleeding system 2-3 time to get all the all out. Once all the air is out of the system you problem should be solved. If air returns to the coolant system have the system checked for possible head gasket leaking air into the coolant system

My engine keeps blowing out the anti freeze through the fill tank overflow. I have a 2004 Super Duty 6.0 turbo.

start you truck. let the temp gage get to where it will start blowing the antifreeze out. than turn your heater on full blast. if the temp goes down and the water doesn't come out than you need to change you thermostate.
