Well you would have steam all over the place if it where actually overheating that bad. I'd say there is a problem with the temp. gauge or a temperature sending unit. I would think this is under warranty, take to the dealer.

Right back at you there Bob.

Thanks

Thanks after restarting twice gage went to normal. I ll get it to dealer. Gages all peg then drop to zero and go to perimeters. I think it stuck on that swing and I did not catch it.
