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.

Answer:
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.
