Question about 1983 Pontiac Phoenix
Help my 1980 phoenix is over heating, well at least the light is coming on. I have replaced the thermostat and have made sure the radiator is full. I am pretty sure the radiator is not leaking. But I drive it until the car heats up (about two miles) and the indicator light goes on. What else can I say, Its not the water pump. Help!!!
I have a1983 Pontiac Phoenix that quits running ever 3 miles but starts backup and go

I would recommened to always use the thermostat as it plays a role in your temp control. is it just the gauge or is the car actually getting hot? if it doesnt get hot check your gauge and temp switch if it does then flush your radiator and cooling system make sure water pump is good check your radiator cap for wear failing all that it may be the head or gasket also check your overflow bottle use the correct type of coolant and make sure it is not leaking anywhere also check your fan is working properly overheating can be an annoying prob to diagnose hope you find it
