Why a Pontiac Montana overhaets frequentely?

The Pontiac Montana engine will overheat if the coolant gets low and is not refilled properly. If coolant is added, an air block WILL OCCUR preventing proper circulation unless owners manual is followed. There are 2 blleeder valves in coolant system. They must be opened & closed in proper sequence (see manual) or engine will overheat. I know-been there!

The needle on the dash over-heat indicator is pinning the speedometer needle in my 2005 Cavaliere. Why would this happen?

Overheat IndicationYou've answered your own question. If the "overheat indicator" is indicating overheating, then the engine and the coolant is OVERHEATED!!!!!!Overheating is a serious situation and any indication of such requires that a qualified automotive technician check the vehicle and determine the cause for the overheating, and correct it to prevent permanent, and possibly very expensive, damage to the engine.Or, another remote possibility is that the engine/coolant temperature sensing/indicating system has become defective.
