Car Information:
Chevy Cavalier
Year: 2005
Engine Size: 4 cylinder
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
Temp gauge goes all the way to 240 but car does not overheat, it stays cool. Changed radiator fan a while ago. Temp only goes up when outside temp goes up. Engine runs fine, fluid is cool, but temp gauge shoots up.

We would need to check the coolant flow and the cooling fan operation,
even though the cooling fan has been replaced it has 2 relays 1 is for low speed and another for high. If its only running on the low speed it could cause this condition.
