did not change water pump guy said it was working, he did change thermostat but I understand those can come malfunctioned

Paul Martin

did you replace your temperature sending unit which is a little brass thing that goes into the engine and then there's one that reads just the engine temperature and then another one that reeds for the gauge or its a single unit but anyway it's located on the engine its a little brass fitting underneath where the battery is on my Saturn sc2 its a 2001 you can find it there sometimes that will send the wrong information to the computer and then the temperature temperature thermostat won't open up and you'll get a hot situation boil over
