The temp gauge reads right in the middle. I replaced the water pump, thermostat, radiator, and bled it so there's no air pockets in it because I have heat. I hooked it to the computer and when the fan is running its at 240 degrees. When I turn the heat on full blast it dropped to 203 degrees. So its running hot but not overheating. I even chaged the thermostat twice because I thought I got a bad one. All else I can think is a bad cylinder head temp sensor triggering a fail safe mode, or a thermal switch(thermostatic switch). Or even a weak alternator not spinning the waterpump fast enough to circulate the coolant throught the radiator after the thermostat opens up. But that's all I got and I'm no mechanic so help me out please.
When I'm driving my temp gauge will start to climb to about 3/4 or more but not fully overheat. Then I will put the heat on and it will drop back down to halfway which it normaly is always at. I checked my anitfreeze level and that's good. Radiator is newly relpaced. Is it my thermostat?
I had to have two fuel lines replaced because they were leaking. Now my mpg has dropped. I use to get about 400 miles per full tank of gas now I'm barely getting 300. I took a look at the gas lines and noticed they are fatter than my originals. The place that did the repair said the size wouldn't make a difference to my mpg.
