I am noticing the temperature gauge sporadically going to the very
hot range after driving for about 2 miles and then all of a sudden
drops into the normal range. Any idea on why this could be happenning ?
This happened twice between a 8 mile stretch while I drive to work.
Coolant level is good? Mine did this a couple of weekes ago and I found low
coolant. Was happening at stop lights during stop and go driving,.While
moving, temp gauge dropped to normal range. Has not re-occurred since
refilling and no leakage noted.
Thanks for your response. My Coolant is full. Could this be a
possiblity ?Until friday the engine oil level was at low(Min) and then
I filled it up over the weekend. Any idea how low engine oil affects
the temperature ?
It turns out to be Radiator leakage as detected by Napa Auto center.
They gave me a quote for 700 bucks to replace radiator and a hose and
charged 90 bucks to detect this problem. Said no thanks as I foound
they were quoting invariably too high.
