Most thermostats run at 180-200 degrees. Anything more than 210 is overheating.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire with a 2.2L motor. It runs great considering how old it is. Last week I started it up and several of my dash lights stayed on. They are: The oil light, the battery...


Sounds to be the dash itself. there is a chip in there and it sounds like it shorted out. You have to replace the panel. Junk yard would be best and cheapest.

Freezing no heat with temp gauge going to 260 and red light on


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.

Possible overheating, 2004 pontiac montana


Its definitly a bad reading, you would know if your vehicle is overheating, you can usually smell it right away.I would say its your temperature gauge sending unit is defective, check the wires to see if they are well connected or broken. ask a backyard mechanic for assistance.
