2001 Chevy Lumina. Got hot, pulled over. Reservoir was boiling over but radiator cap was cool to the touch. Let it cool off. Check water in radiator and reservoir, needed very little. Started driving and almost immediately got hot again. Reservoir boiling over again. Let cool and when released pressure with radiator cap all water sucked out of reservoir.

The only thing that you didn't change is the t-stat. If you have an electric fan clutch, the dealership has an updated program that changes the time it comes on and off. I would try the t-stat. You may need to have your vehicle checked for a bad h ... GMC Envoy

The fuel and temperature gauges are pegged out on my Suzuki samurai. The fuel gauge is always pegged out and the temperature gauge is low when first started then goes to max temperature in about a minute. I changed the thermostat, temp sending unit, checked for coolant flow (yes), checked the water pump impellers..all good. The vehicle is not overheating and I know that I am almost out of gas. I am thinking that the two are related. Can you help?

Problem is with temperature control. Even on a very cold day the needle goes up to the top and red light comes on.

I own a 1994 Grand Prix 3.1 motor. The temp gauge goes almost the the boil point with no heat coming out of the heater. when i rev up the engine the temp goes down and then the heat starts to blow, but the low level light comes on.
