I don't know much about maintaining or trouble shooting vehicles. I have a 1992 Toyota pickup truck which i am going to sell in 7 weeks. I haven't had a problem with it until about a week ago. My temperature gauge lays just at the edge of the red and when I park, I hear "boiling" in the radiator. I filled the radiator with water this morning but it didn't seem to help. I don't see any traces of coolant leakage either in the garage. I had the oil changed two weeks ago and had no problems before this.Questions:1.) What causes the temperatue gauge to move into the red and liquid boil in the radiator/overflow container?2.) Could the oil change place done something to cause this?3.) Is the problem worth fixing before I sell the truck?Thank you for any response.By the way, I started yesterday the "fax-a-thon" for a 2001 Toyota Pre-Runner V6 Ext cab w/ power wind, doors, mirrors, off-road pckg, sunroof, bucket seats, tilt steering, upgraded sound system, alarm system, antilock brakes, AC, & floor mats. I sent faxes to 8 dealers here in the Phoenix area. So far I received 2 responses - 1 for $318 over invoice and the other for $375 over invoice. The "Fool's advice" on this one really seems to be working great!!-jkf296
