if you have a bleeder nut or screw just above the thermostat housing , you need to bleed the system cause you have an air lock

try the bleading of the system,210 is the right temp,are you going buy the temp guadge or is it actually overheating,haveing to add coolent to it,2 problems you may have 1-a bad guadge,2- blown head gasket.check oil to see if milkey looking,or exseffse steam comeing from exhaust pipe.


it could be a water pump to but sounds like a head gasket if your losing fluid

Mine had a tiny crack on the underside of the hose leading away from the water pump. I never would have found it if I hadn't disconnected the water pump, thinking it was bad. Turned out the pump was fine, just a little section of hose needed replacing.

collent & oil leaks are a big pita to trace down,good thing the wp has a weep hole.


possibly plugged heater core restricting the coolant flow...juss a thought ..


try the relay for the fan mine went out and it took me a week to find out y i was over heating i put a new one in and now it stays cool

Are you leaking anti-freeze?
