I just put my camaro back together after my wreck on Friday. Front end collision: No engine damage, no radiator damage. Just cosmetics (body damage and slight frame bend. Got it all straightened out drove it this evening. Within 1 to 2 minutes my temp is telling me that I'm at 250-260 degrees! So I shut it off, check my hoses and radiator cap. Hoses are warm, radiator cap is fairly cool, and just filled up the fluid. No intense heat coming off of the engine. I thought perhaps it was a sticking thermostat but my radiator return hose is full of hot water. My question is this: Is it possible that its just my gauge? Has this happened to anyone else? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
