I just bought the car with alot of miles on it because I am a poor college student. After driving it for a week I noticed that when it idles (when being driven the temp is fine) the temp goes up to the red, sits there for a few minutes then goes down. I was told by a mechanic to replace the thermostat, but I dont have the money to have him do it, so I want to try it myself. First of all, does it sound like a thermostat problem? If so, could I get some very detailed instructions on how to make this repair in that it doesn't sound like the thermostat is very accessible on this vehicle. Thanks.
have the same problem?
