there are definitely no puddles on the ground anywhere? not even a drip?
I just had the car painted and noticed paint on the lower end of my radiator. Any ideas? Thanks.
:headscratch::headscratch::headscratch:my car always ran up to hot on the red line when i first got it, make sure your gauge isnt faulty.
the only sure way to check is get you and a buddy, start it up and let it idle then go thru the rpms idle to 2g, idle to 3g, ect. and if your motor starts to run hot check if the fan kicks on. if it kicks on and its hot, its probably the thermostat was inserted incorrectly, there is something clogging your antifreeze system so flush it, warped heads and intake manifold, bad gaskets
actually if your losing alot of antifreeze and dont see any drips your probably burning up yer antifreeze in your cylinders cuz of bad head gaskets. my car did that and i never saw any white smoke.
i recommend take it to an auto shop and have them lube and seal all your parts and gaskets, they will tell you if they find a problem, if its still saying its getting hot take it back and have them heat test your engine, idk what its called but its like a strobe light, kinda like a timing gun but it determines the temp of your motor every second to see if there is an actual increase in the temp.
hope this helps
