I read in the Auto Repair by Topic regarding an overheating thermostat and found that my car is experiencing a somewhat similar problem to someone else's. His vehicle's temperature gauge was fluctuating from normal to hot, along with blowing [i: d2951b86dd]cold[/i: d2951b86dd] air while the [i: d2951b86dd]heater[/i: d2951b86dd] was on.
2000 Trans Am w/Ram Air package and 54k miles:
With the A/C running, my car will intermittently blow warm air accompanied by the theromostat temperature rising to the red. After a few minutes, it starts to blow cool air again and the reader drops back to normal.
Even without the A/C on, the temperature gauge will still periodically go up and down. For whatever reason, my car seems to be overheating.
Is my problem, like his, in that it could be a lack of coolant or leak?
