2008 Chevrolet Aveo Q&A
2008 Chevrolet Aveo Question: does motor shut when hot?
NO the needle does not ALWAYS show hot....THAT being said ...what is the recent service history (details even trivial are helpful).Depending on where the temp sender unit is for the gauge, if the vehicle lost coolant rapidly (say while cruising on highway) and liquid was no longer present to trigger the sender then the needle would likely drop to 'cold' and also likely that little or no heat would come from the heater (not that we're using our heat settings lately!) IN otherwords if a lower hose busted out on the highway , theres not much your friend could've done 'til he/she noticed symptoms. - ziptie12
