Re: OVERHEATING 2003 Gulf Stream Diesel
We have the exact same problem with our '03 Friendship. We had it checked and they can't find anything wrong.
Frankly, I don't think it is actually overheating. I've actually had the thing read hot when leaving my steep driveway before it even gets warm.
It seems to me to be the angle of the grade. I think this because as soon as you crest a hill or stop, the gauge returns to normal temp within seconds. If the coolant was hot enough to set off the warning buzzer and flash the check engine light, then I doubt it would cool off into the normal range within 5 seconds.
With my limited expertise, I'm thinking it is some kind of sensor that gets set off at a tilt.
Curious to hear from others on this issue as well.
