I have a '93 t-bird v6. Occasionally this happens: The engine temp will jump all the way to the top within the first 10 minutes of driving. Then settle back down to normal for the rest of the drive, never going back up. Also if the heat is on, all it blows is cold air till the temp needle goes back to normal. My question is; is the thermastat going? Any suggestions would be helpful....Thanks

Change your thermostat NOW and do a coolant flush. You are likely low on coolant and don't mess around with the temperature or t-stat unless you want to replace some headgaskets any time soon.

So....

what are you waiting for? GO! NOW! :D
