you have one of two problems. either you have a bad gauge or a bad sensor. I would go to a pick and pull junkyard and get a new sender off of a car at the junkyard, if that does not help, I would go back to the junkyard and get the gauge of another car and replace it. This will solve your problem Dodge Spirit and Plymouth Acclaims have issues with the temp sensor. Also, you could have a leaking head gasket which is my current problem on my 94 Spirit.

Why is the engine overheating belts persistently squealing and heat gone?

To give some additional information, it is a 2000 Hyundai Elantra and this morning after warming up for 20 minutes the belts still squealed the entire drive to work (about a half hour). I thought I smelled burning rubber at one point. The heat went out and only resumed if I stopped it and started it again a few minutes later. The power windows go up and down but really slowly. The lights on the dashboard were very dim. Then right before I got to work I saw that my engine was overheating. Thermostat replaced in June. Could it be one of the belts needs replaced?
