Engine Cooling problem
1998 Ford Contour 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 135000 miles
The other day I noticed my temp gauge was nearing the red zone. I shut the car off immediately to let it cool down, but the next time I started it, the same thing happened. I let the car warm up for about ten minutes, and although the temp gauge got high enough to be near the red (it would of kept going had I not shut it off), when I tried turning on the heat, I didn't get any hot air, the air was still cool coming out of the vents. So, I spoke to some people that suggested it might be the thermostat. I replaced the thermostat, but I still have the overheating problem. Any ideas on what it could be?
have the same problem?
