I've asked a number of knowledgeable mechanics and we're all stumped. Figure this one out and you win the cookie. :)

Symptoms: At normal driving temperature, the temp gauge fluctuates between "Normal" and "Red Zone." When the temp gauge goes UP, the heater blows COLD. Rev up the engine a bit and the temp gauge goes back down to "normal" and the heater blows HOT.

We've replaced: The Radiator, The Thermostat, The Water Pump, We've flushed and back-flushed the block, the Radiator and the heater Core. The Coolant is new 50/50 mix and we've properly bled the air out of the system.

Any Takers?

Leak is not sever, but is constant.

Wondering if it is possible to clean the injectors and how hard it is to clean them? Car was running rough under acceleration and above a certain rpm. Had to ease up on accelerator to upshift. Replaced gas filter twice about a day apart and added injector cleaners to gas tank. Helped, but still runs uneven.

Heater fan has failed. In process of diagnosing, reset dashboard fuse box and checked all HVAC fuses...all were functional, however, ignition now failing. All lights coming on, everything else seems operational. Car has remote start.

what is the cost of a power steering fluid flush?

wipers stop in up position after turning them off

Need to find out how to remove the steering column in order to replace the dimmer switch

I have a high mileage 2002 Buick Century.

My gas gauge is acting very weird in how it reports fuel level.

I know it is common for a fuel level to vary when you are parked on an incline. However, mine is out of control. I can be below E, with a warning light on in my slightly pitched driveway, and be a half tank or better when I start to drive up the road (which is a slight incline). At times, I have seen the level show a variance of E to F, depending on the incline.
As I mentioned, this is an old car with a lot of miles on it, so I am not looking to spend a lot of money here. Any ideas?
