    Seems as if the jinx is never gonan end till i dump this puppy into the
    river))gauge shows engine is overheating after driving only a mile but
    coolant is only lukewarm. let engine sit for 5 mins and then gauge stays on
    C (cold) and does not move. After an hour or so, I on my way home and the
    thing shows H(overheating 0again. seems as if it is just the gauge to me .
    if it is, is it hard to replace??

    Also sounds very much like an air lock in the coolant system - and/or
    coolant not circulating properly. You could be reading very hot air, where
    the coolant in not circulating due to air lock, or reading very hot coolant,
    because it is not being moved through the rad properly.
    Are you able to determine the coolant in the block is actually only luke
    warm, or are you determining this by feeling the rad hose, which may or may
    not be getting properly circulated coolant.
