    Does the interior ventilator fan work consistently?

    Did you do any work to the radiator or cooling system recently?

    Does the selector switch on the dash work? An obstruction isn't impossible but it is hard to come by, especially if you have maintained the system as you have.

    Did you burp the system fully when you replaced the coolant? Have you used the heater since then?

    Does the temperature gauge go all the way up to operating temperature?

    Yeah the temp gauge went all the way up so the thermostat works but I fixed it it was severely low on coolant SO TO ANYONE READING THIS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM BEFORE YOU TEAR STUFF OUT Just add some coolant see what happens

    The real issue is why you were low on coolant. Find out and fix that ASAP.

    A head gasket leak can lead to a blown motor, so I wouldn't sit on that for very long.
