Re: [DML] While we're talking about cooling problems...heres mine!

Is it possible for an air bubble in the system to cause the gauge to
flicker down as if it was cool? Otterstat I have never replaced, only
because I like how cool my car runs...or ran...but looks like I'll be
ordering one and a bleeder kit soon. It is unknown how old my
thermostat is, but a few months ago I had it out and tested its
operation. I'll change fuse 5 and do more testing/cleaning to the
wires of the fans. I do have coolant flowing into the bottle so I know
theres no blockage. I'll just go over the hoses again and make sure
nothings leaking and etc. I appreciate everyone's help and
suggestions. I'm about to go now and work on it so I'll let you know
how everything turns out. Thanks again guys! -----Dani B. #5003
