problem #1

'check gauges' light comes on multiple times, temperature gauge to redline for a few minutes, then back to normal. Brought in to be checked/fixed 5 times, 'no leak', 'no problem detected', 'radiator hose loose', 'added coolant' until this last time: 'cracked head'; also oil gauge recently shows no pressure with great frequency, as with temperature gauge. I had been adding coolant every few weeks. I believe this problem could seize the engine while vehicle is in motion.
