Added coolant. But then there was no temp reading at all
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Heat does not blow hot either
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 10 months ago.

You need to find and address why it overheated in the first place. Possible causes:

faulty fan

stuck thermostat

restricted radiator

blown head gasket

bad water pump

coolant leak

The issue now is likely a air pocket in the system. Run the engine with the coolant cap off and the heat on to belch out the air trapped i nthe cooling system that prevents the coolant from flowing.

Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 10 months ago.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
