When I drive my truck for a while and shut it off at the store my temp goes from normal when I shut it off and when I start it it reads sometimes up to 210 degrees. It's a 2001 Chevy S10 automatic 4 wheel drive about 180000 miles, I've replaced the thermostat but didn't seem to help
My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. In general, worn out coolant tubes, or a radiator with worn out radiator coils and fins are the root sources of an engine that is running hotter than it should. This problem can also be caused by a temperature sensor that is faulty on the radiator itself. It might be a good idea to have one of our mobile mechanics come to your location to complete a car is running hotter than it should inspection so they can isolate the root issue and recommend or complete the right repairs.
