Question about 2001 Chevrolet Venture
Sometimes the temp gauge needle is pointing off the gauge for days. Overnight it sometimes comes back down. The radiator isn't hot and the car is not acting like the engine is hot. I baught a thermostat but haven't put it in yet. Is it the gauge controll panel that is the problem? I am going to replace the thermostat. How do I burp the system after replacing it so that there is no air buble trapped behind the thermostat? Is that even the problem?
You dont have to "Burp" the system. The problem is probably in the temperature sender unit. If you get a book like a Haynes repair book, at your parts store they are written in Laymen terms so they are easy to understand they will walk you through replacing it or finding it. They are not that hard to change. Could also be a gauge but I would try the sender first or at least test it with a ohm meter which they will describe in the book.
