Why does the temp gage go all the way to red but my 97 chrysler sebring conv. not overheating? the fan also only works on high.
fan switch needs replaced most likely, seen that on other cars, either on full blast, or not at all..simply lower settings have gone out ( least in my experience ). your engine has a temperature sensor, that is most likely also gone out. you MIGHT be able to replace that yourself, or buy the part and have someone install it. That is the most likely suspect to an engine temp gauge going into red zone, yet engine temp is actually fine.
