My 99 dodge avenger is having an issue with the temperature gauge. While driving it will slowly climb toward hot then if decelerate it will level out again. It doesn't do this all the time some times if I keep the car at an even speed that will keep the temperature down. It just started doing this after my father in law pulled off the hose that is attached to the opening where the radiator cap is to clean it off, cause it was all gunked up. I have read other forums asking the same question, many say to replace the thermostat, I just want to know from some actual experts before I go replacing parts.
have the same problem?
