Question about 2000 Nissan Sentra
This problem just started a few days ago. My temp reading for the vehicle used to stay steady at middle ground. A few days ago it started doing some extreme fluctuating from about a 1/3 up the line all the way to the line before the H. I've added more coolant, more oil to the engine and it still does it. It doesn't steam or anything. Also when I turn the heat on, it stays warm for about 10 minutes, then the air gets fairly cold. I have no idea what could be causing this. Help?
You have an airpocket in your system. The car needs new headgasket.common problem.

Well first off i would just have the thermostat changed out cause this will flaux if bad and soon it will stick
engine temperature for most vehicles should run around 200 - 220
anything hotter your engine will melt
also clogs in radiator system can make over heat bugs in radiator clogs system
your a/c throw out bearing could be wearing down on vehicle and maken it run hotter because now the vehicle has to produce more force just to spin a/c compressor
but i wouldnt worry that right now doesnt sound like its it but keep eye on it
do you have digital gages for vehicle or manual switch cause for it getting cold while using heat makes it sound like there is a switch malfunction or digital guage mal. the wiring has some how been run backwards
