I have a 1994 z-28 camaro with about 168,000 miles on it. The temperature gauge rises and never goes back down. When it hits the red line the car acts like it wants to die. The car never overheats but the gauge shows that its overheating.I took it to chevrolet and they told me it was the the entire gauge panel that was bad? And it was going to cost me 600.00 but I have heard from several people that it might be something else? Please Help

On the V8 Camaros you have to bleed the cooling system. If there is any air in the system it will not cool corectly. On the top of the thermostat housing there is a small bleeder valve, you need to loosen it with the engine running and let all of the air out of the system. Be carefull, the distributor is below the bleeder behind the water pump. DO NOT GET IT WET. It will be a major head ache if you do, Ive done that job and its not fun. I had a 94 Z28 and I had a problem that sounds like the same problem your having and that fixed it. Good Luck, Rod
