1998 Plymouth Neon Automatic
Hi, I have had some problems with my car for the last few weeks. It overheats and the theromostat that tells me that it overheats starts beeping. 2 minutes pass by and I am able to drive no problem like nothing happened.
The first time this happened I was in a drivethru waiting for food. It started beeping and then white smoke came out of the right side of the hood of the car. I waited for a few minutes then started driving again and had no problem or beeping sounds.
The second time this happened was when I was waiting at an intersection and it started beeping again but with no white smoke. I waited for a few minutes again and I had no problem starting to drive again.
The third time is when I was leaving a leaving a parking lot and it started beeping again with no white smoke from anywhere. Was able to drive no problems after a few minutes.
In all 3 incidents after I waited I would start to drive slowly and the thermostat would go down. The last time I drove alittle bit faster and it did the same thing.
Would the thermostat guage be broken or did I blow something in my car?
have the same problem?
