Alright guys well my car has been running a little warmer then usual so i decided to see if i had air built up in the motor because i changed the radiator early this year and got a new T-stat a few months ago and did not run the car to get the air out.Well i did not seem like there was any air in the car. I added water wetter to my car today also. well now my car almost runs past the L on the guage where as before it would sit right on the A. Well i have a fairly new rad,new 180* Mr. Gasket T-stat, full of coolant, the fan does work, and the still seems to run hot. The car runs fine and still runs like new so thats why im thinking its not a head gasket. I either think the water pump is going out or im just not getting the right reading from the gauge. anyone have anyideas??
Just don't run without a thermostat, that'll really make it run hot.
I'd guess it's the water pump, especially if it's never been changed. Has it ever been changed?

its probably got to do with the horrid hot weather we've been having in texas lately. mine runs like a dream in 7-8am rush hour but holy crap it peters out like none other in the mid and late day stuff. i just replaced the heater core (pain in the ass) and i was hoping the fresh coolant would help out some but she still gets all hot and bothered in the 90+ outside. i'm going to try to freshen up the cooling system in a weekend or two so i'll let you know if it helps anything at all.
mine all of the sudden started running hot. I checked everything except the ccrm. I finished replacing the water pump and now she runs cooler. look in the radiator and see if water is circulating. For a water pump to last 13 years without problems, thats luck !!!
Yes the weather down here in CC TX is deff hella hot. over a 100 today. sucks. 100* plus crazy humidity = no fun
Ive pretty much concluded that it is a faulty sensor/gauge whatever. I was cruising home tonight and usually with out the a/c i can feel heat come from my ashtray and the tranny. Well i was cruising and it was barely even warm around those areas. felt like it usually does when my temp gauge used to show it was running cooler. well i got out the car and the air my fan was blowing semi warm air. and when my car gets hot my cold air intake freakin aborbs heat like crazy and it is usualy untouchable well i was grabbing it no problems. felt my upper intake manifold wich usually also gets hella hot. and i laid my hand on it with no prob. so car deff runs at normal temp. guess imma check the sensor and crap tomorrow
well after changing out both temp sensors and that not working. i found out that my thermostat that i had just replaced about two months ago went to crap. it was not opening. thanks everyone for the help
