I have a 1999 ford explorer. It has 67,000 and a 2wheel drive with a 4.0l v6 eddie bauer edition. Soon after I start to drive it the temperature gauge starts to go to hot and the check gauge light comes on and then the temperature goes down and then back up, like a roller coaster. Car does not appear to get hot and smoke, but the AC is cold at first and then warm, it's like a roller coaster too when gauge goes up and down.
Other question is I have changed my gas cap 3 times in the past months because of smelling gas fumes at times and was told by one person that that is what it is. I don't think so because of purchasing different new ones has not fixed it. Do you have any suggestions to either question? Thanks so much for your time.
