If the level of the coolant is ok you don´t have a leak, maybe is the thermostat, and it´s located at the end of the radiator hose ( a kind of a "T" hose)

2001 suburban overheating

Insturment cluster problem ! What is the actual temp. of the engine coolant ? Using a factory or a professional type scanner that can view engine sensor data to see what the PCM think's the engine temp. is . Then using a infrared thermometer to check temp at the upper radiator hose near the thermostat housing to see if what the PCM is seeing is the same . Taking one's vehicle to a qualified repair shop an not guessing as to the problem would be your best bet .

1999 ford taurus is overheating. Head gaskets have been replaced and it takes awhile for the cooling fan to turn on. What else could be the problem?

Are you sure the head gaskets needed to be replaced was it to stop the leak? Go to an auto parts store leave a deposit and use the tool for free. One tool has a cap that fits on the cooling system and has a pump on top You pump the system up to 15 pounds and look around the engine and the radiator for leaks. This is what your repair shop should have done before they replaced head gaskets. Putt a meat thermometer in the radiator when it is cold start engine. Let run. Put hand on upper radiator hose when the thermostat is starting to open the hose will turn hot right away the thermometer will read 180 to 195 If the engine starts to over heat the thermostat is bad but if it opens the temp will slowly rise to 200 to 215 that will be fully open and around here the fan will turn on and cool the engine down( make sure the air is off or one fan will be on all the time) if fan comes on late replace temp sensor for radiator. If everything works the radiator is probably plugged

How do i check the thermostat on a 2004 pacifica

Start the engine (cold start) until 'warm'. Turn off the engine and check the hoses. If one hose is cold then the coolant is not circulating. You may have a bad thermostat. If your radiator fan turns on and off it is also a sign of the thermostat. Otherwise check for leaks it may be a bad water pump.
