this car is not overheating IMO. If it was I doubt it would still be running. This seems to be an electrical issue. I have never seen an engine in the red come down once its there. When the temp gauge goes to the red, does it run any differently? is there a bubbling sound coming from the coolant reservoir? Is any coolant coming out the overflow tube? Any abnormal steam, sounds, smells or car actions(other than gauge)? If they wont fix it i say pound it long n hard and when they have to replace the engine you can say..."I told you there was a problem".
