Having problems with your Chevrolet Monte Carlo ?
2005 Monte Carlo
Running hot. Tried lower temp thermostat (180), flushed numerous times and bled air out, finally took thermostat out and temp guage still runs at 1/2 or above. Recently had air intake replaced. Heater core has slight hole so it is bypassed.
Perhaps this is correct range for this car that shows on the gauge ,or the sensor on the cylinder head is not giving the right voltage ,replace thermostat and add the correct coolant then just drive as i think their is nothing wrong with it at all ,identical cars when new off the end of the assembly line can have different temperature gauge readings some might show a 1//4 and some 3/4 but it doesnt matter so long as it works ,thermostat should be a 88C or even a 92C is ok so put the original back in and leave it well alone and ignore the readings,when it bangs the top of the gauge then and only then worry about it i do feel you are looking for a fault that doesnt exist
