I would seriously consider taking it in... if its running hot could
be you have a circulation problem - could be very expensive if
you keep driving it. Might be at least worth a quote at the dealership.
Sorry to hear.

Oul light flickering at stop lights/signs is quite often the sending unit (not to expensive to fix). The overheating could be a number of things, low coolant, T-stat, or pehaps low coolant due to lower intake manifold gaskets.

Thanks, is there a way to check the sending unit? coolant level is good, thermostat appears to be working ( as soon as the can is driving it cools right down.) Thinking it may be the fans, they work when i hook them up directly but not when temp was up.

This is one area I just don't know about - is there an oil pump in vehicles? If it has been gradually getting hotter and hotter over a year or two could it be plugged manifolds? Curious how you got the fans to run... when I travel through the mountains I'd like to turn the fans on manually... Thanks.
