It ran for a couple of minutes and I could feel the engine begin to warm up. Then the rpms began going up and then the engine began reving, like someone was hitting the gas and letting off quickly. I immediately turned the engine off, but I noticed that the temp gauge did not move at all; it was still stone cold.
Anyway, I think it may be the thermostat, but I don't know where it is located and I am having difficulty finding information on the net.
Can someone shed some light on my situation, please? I'd really appreciate it.
Hi, I have a 95 Coupe that had a similar problem. Issue was a blown head gasket, that leaked exhaust gas in the cooling circulation system. All was ok until the extremely hot water blew a hose and all hell broke loose. The temp gauge didnt pick this up until the last seconds. Could be this but who knows. Good luck.
