Check your battery cable connections. Make sure they're clean and tight. Same thing with the alternator connections. I recently had a similar issue with my '00 Grand Prix GT. The negative (-) battery cable had come loose. HTH. -Jim

Got another question when driving down the road the temp gauge is the first big mark above 160( don't recall what it is lol) but if u idle in traffic it will reach 200 then go right back down once u take off Just put a 195 stat and bled all the air out ??
