bk2futr Posted January 15, 2015 Report Share Posted January 15, 2015 Hi. I am new to the forum and have recently reading a lot about overheating and head gasket issues on these engines and wanted to get some advice before I have any problems. I don't believe I have a over heat issue now as the gauge is always no higher than 1/2 even on trips. It has about 80,000 miles on it and I've owned it for about 8 years. It is a "pleasure" driving car and I try to drive it about 500-1,000 miles a year. So it does "sit" at times for weeks without being driven. My questions are: 1. if the gauge is reading about 1/2 is this normal for these engines even in cold weather? 2. should I have the coolant flushed and replaced and if so where is the best place to have it done and what kind should they replace it with? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
