The car probably needs a new thermostat.

My 01 Pontiac Montana is trying to overheat at high power


If your vehicle doesn't actually overheat, just getting hot, I think that's the normal behaviour for these cars. My 03 AWD behaves the same way. When driving uphill, especialy when towing, the temperature rises close to the red marking, but I have never experienced it overheating. I think that the temperature has to rise much over the normal driving temperature to activate the two electric fans.

radiator is probably stopped up and when you allow coolant into the heater core which is a small radiator itself. it get sufficient releive to run normal. or your sender for the temp guage is bad and the car never is really overheating.

2004 Suzuki Forenza-changed antifreeze-now overheats-if I turn to the right temp gauge drops back to normal.


Did you bleed the air from the system? That must be done or the system developed air blocks and this causes it to run hot.

make sure that the coils, ( the ac radiator ) are clean , blow them out with an air hose if you can get a hold of one, also, make sure the ac fan is coming on, it may start , but the sensor may be bad allowing it to turn off too soon , a normal rise in heat is expected when using the AC but if it is too hot you should feel the motor start to run rough, if its running fine, and the temp does move back to normal when the ac is turned off, and a qualified mechanic has checked it, your probably ok, you could have a sensitive gauge, , If the normal range of the gauge moves to hot and back during normal driving without the ac on, that would show the thermostat is also working

1992 acura legend very weird problems


This particular model suffers with head gasket problems. I have had to replace head gaskets on several of these vehicles to solve the overheating problem. The two cylinders in the rear of the engine are the problematic ones. The head gasket goes bad in that area which sends combustion gas into the cooling system. This then creates air pockets which in turn causes the engine to run hot. The air pockets then shift and as water starts to circulate again, the temperature goes back down. This cycle repeats over and over.
Solution is to replace the head gaskets.
