It may be vapor-lock so first try replacing the fuel-cap,also put some stp-gas treatment or other product.

I do not know what year your truck is but I would remove the ignition module from inside the distributer and remove the rotor so you would have access to the module. Take the module to oreillys and have them test it. Sometimes they make the car act like the car is running out of gas.

How to replace thermostat on 200 kia sephia

So long as the meter does not go into the Red/Orange zone, then it is likely just getting hotter because of the hot weather.

You can help avoid any problems by not driving in stop and go traffic and trying to park the car in shady spots when you can. Not driving for more than an hour helps and driving with the Vent on will help too (but it will make it extra hot inside the car, lol).

If it reaches the red zone, then park it and get ready, cause it's time to replace the thermostat and do a general tune up.

Need to find heater core and hoses on 1992 acura vigor gs

On a Honda built vehicle, the suspect item is usually the heat valve. Look for two hoses about 1" in diameter going toward the passenger compartment from the engine. One of them will have a valve inline usually. Another possible problem is a bad water pump, however, that will also cause a car to run hotter than usual as well.
