I installed the thermo, filled the system back up with coolant, and now the temp is higher than it was before.. WHAT THA?? I was reaching up to 240 deg..
I checked the coolant level and it was fine, checked for leaks and there wasn't any. I assumed that there might have been some air bubbles that were still getting worked out of the system. Any Suggestions on this one?


Oh, also a previous problem, but I finally got it read yesterday, Bad O2 Sensor in Bank 1... Heater core something... Which one is it?

thanks everyone!!

You may have a bubble trapped in there somwhere. It should work itself out eventually after a few starts and stops or cycles of heating and cooling.

It's a stupid question, but it requires asking....you didn't put it in backwards did you?

It will still reach 215 or so before the fans kick on even though you have a lower thermostat but it shouldn't get up to the red on the temp gauge. Try squeezing the hose a little to work out the bubbles.

You and I know that. But do you think there hasn't been someone somewhere who hasn't sat there trying to force something like that in there, screaming "Why won't this piece of sh1t fit in there!!!" lol

Like I said, just had to ask. ;)

hey the only reason i know that is through trial and error. wasn't positive which way it went back in but when i looked at it i figured it out pretty quick.

Unless the money doesn't show up next week, yeah it's still sold.
