CHEVY TEMPERATURE GUAGE

1999 Chevrolet Blazer

Engine Cooling problem
1999 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 120, 00 miles

The temperature gauge shows that my engine is close to overheating. The gauge normally stays around 210, but now it is inching closer to maximum. I have had this problem for some time. Recently, I had my engine replaced with a used motor, but the temperature gauge is acting up again. Can you give any suggestions as to why and how I can fix this problem? Thank You.

Hello, just some possibilities, water pump-- thermostat--clogged radiator-- cooling fan-- coolant temp sensor, maybe an air pocket in the cooling system, maybe an engine issue? I'm not saying replace anything, I'm just listing possbilities

I'd remove the thermostat, hook everything back up, start the vehicle, check for coolant flow through the radiator. That should show that the water pump is working.
