When i start the car and take off, the temperature gauge starts to go all the way to the red area then the tracoff light comes on and I have to pull over and cut the car off. Wait 2 minutes, then start again. I have done every thing that I can do for this car. I had the car for 5 years.
why does the temperature gauge goes to hot? on 2004 Oldsmobile Alero

You definitely have an electrical issue, and this needs to be Diagnosed. GM has had problems with their Instrument Clusters, so that is the place where I would put my focus.
