hopefully i get a quick response, on the alero there are only 3 scewrs to remove right? i have them all out and just want to make sure that’s it, i’m pulling on the bottom of the panel and it’s not budging, just want to make sure i have all the scewrs out before i break something haha


What is it that you are trying to remove on your Olds Alero.

When I start my car the water temperature gauge is already in the red hot zone and continues to bypass the red zone and faces downward toward the floor as the car warms for less then 3 minutes. Checked and filled the 50/50 anti-freeze and still does this. I’m afraid to drive my car. Sorry it is a 2004 Chevrolet Impala 3.4 liter, V


If the gauge starts in the red when the engine is cold, you either have a bad gauge which is part of the instrument cluster, or a bad coolant temperature sensor.

Hi, i have Chevrolet Caprice 2001 sometime temp gauge goes more than half or around 60-65% is it ok?

ProTech: A little bit over halfway on the temp gauge should be fine. Even 3/4 is not detrimental, as the gauge is never as exact as the the actual temperature sensor. I would only be cautious if the gauge starts to go past the 3/4 mark and head towards the red. Then you would want to get it checked out before any damage occurs.
