      As far as your cooling system, 210 degrees F is not overheating. I don't know your thermostat rating, maybe around 195 degrees f? The boiling point of water is 212 degrees f. For every pound of pressure on the cooling system, it raises the boiling point about 3 degrees f. So if you have a 16 pound radiator cap, that puts the boiling point about 260 degrees f and that maybe a little low with antifreeze.

      I don't have much info on a 2014 vehicle. You could call your local dealership and talk to the service department about your concern?

    Why does my truck cut off when I press the gas pedal after getting a tune up?
    I just recently had a tune up done. Every time I attempt to drive it, it cuts off when I try to give it gas. When it sits idling, it runs just fine.

      Check fuel pressure with a gauge and see if pressure drops when trying to accelerate. Sounds like a week pump.

      Fuel pressure regulator is leaking fuel past the diaphram. Replace it.

      This is caused by a temp actuator failure. Replace driver side door temp actuator.

    How can I test to see if my truck is blowing anti freeze coolant through the exhaust
    Every few days I have to add coolant.Had a radiator pressure tester on it at 15psi and did not see any leaks and pressure was holding.Is it possible when coolant is at operating temperature in the recovery plastic tank it may be leaking while driving.

    Engine will not start cold. Will start immeditely once starting fluid is induced into carb
    72,000 miles, changed carb 2 years ago for flooding. after change the engine was a little slow to fire but it would start.I believe the slow start was just my inexperience to adjust electric choke. Now it is impossible without starter fluid. After the first start ...

    Checked starter, alternator, fuses and battery and all checked out to be good. Car starts but dies quickly.
    No check engine light, think there is a short somewhere but don't know where to begin.

      My first thought is your security system. Can you rule that out?

      Check fuel pressure. See if system is running rich or lean, if possible.

      Do you know how I would be able to check the security system? Sorry but when it comes to electrical, I'm not the best.

      Is there a security lite on the dash? Any applicable trouble codes? You need an obd2 code reader, at the least, to check codes.

      No check engine light. Just the battery light turns on.

      If it was antitheft, the security light on the dash should be on or flashing and you would lose injector pulse.

    Why does my car hesitate while driving?
    has 130000 miles and acts like it is going to quit while driving

      How long since a tune-up? What about filters, air filter and fuel filter. As far as the fuel filter, make sure there is no pressure on the system before you take anything loose. Check for applicable trouble codes, your obd1 so you should be able to check codes, yourself.

      Is the starter motor loose? Check the flywheel and starter motor drive gear.

      If you have TBI fuel injection, engine cranking, can you see an injector spray pattern? Also, check fuel pressure, TBI around 9--13 psi.
