I recently replaced my thermostat, radiator, lupper & lower hoses and fliud but I think I'm still running hot. On the way to work today my temp guage was at 220 where its usualy @ 190 or so. Also the hoses were very hard and the lower one was almost ice cold as well as the lower 1/4 of the radiator and this was after a 50 minute drive. Anyone experience this before?
Also another thing I noticed while watching my guages was that my volt guage was reading 18 volts
while the car was running, normally it reads 12-14. I checked the battery out and it was hissing... any idea what could be causing this?
