I have a 88 900s and had the same problem. It only happened to me on a road trip. Suddenly out of the blue tha temp gauge started rising to the redline. I wasn't far from home so I decided to turn around. I went to my local car guy and of course he thought it was the thermostat. He changed it but that didn't solve it. Next was the radiator and so on. I finally took it to the dealer after $400.00 of parts was thrown in. The dealer said it was the cylinder head gasket. Gee a five dollar gasket but 13 hours of labor. Also check to see if your gauges are accurate. Good luck. dp
