I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar, 5spd, that the temp gauge started climbing on over a year ago. We have replaced the heater core, the water pump and belt, radiator, sensors, thermostat, and hoses. We ran a test kit on the head gasket, and it tested negative for a problem. It doesn't do it every time it's driven, and it has NEVER lost any fluid or spewed from anywhere. The fluid level has stayed consistent in the reservoir. SO frustrated and have put about 1500 in parts in this car in the past year, and still don't have a car to drive. I'm a single disabled mom, and on a very small fixed income, and I desperately need my car to be dependable to drive again. Any ideas?? PLEASE HELP!

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car only has 76000 miles on it, btw, and I desperately need to get it up and running again, so that I can go to the doctor and the store.  I've been having to depend on others and do without drs. visits because of this.
