replaced the coolant flange yesterday(still leaking at the small non ect hole,one with the cross on the cap) the temp gauge is not moving(coolant) but the car is overheating and the oil temp is flying,also no heat getting through. can a bad thermostat cause the non functioning coolant gauge? car was running fine before the small leak. i know its not a head gasket,no milky residue in the oil and none in the spark plug cylinders. i heard a flushing of the heater core would solve the heating issue,but someone must have had a similar problem to this.one more question,would an ect cause the car to overheat? also water pump only has 30 k on it.

check your temp sensor
