My engine overheats until I turn on my heater I only have to leave it running for a couple seconds and then can turn it off and it won't overheat for the rest of the drive. 85 gt 2.8l

Something strange happening there......maybe it has to do with a bad electrical contact. Is your coolant really hot or does the gauge just say it's hot?

It sounds like there is air in the cooling system or the heater coil or possibly not enough coolant (which would mean air in the system). I had a similar problem until I followed the steps to refill that can be found in Ogre's Cave. I was also parked nose down at a 30-degree angle (steep driveway) when I refilled. Haven't had a overheating problem since.

I don't know I always forget to check my coolant tubes when its happening, although the thermostat cap in the back gets hot.

I followed those steps to refill as well, and I fill it with coolant although it seems like it might be leaking from somewhere. Looks like the front so maybe the reservoir is bad ?

No offence... but if there are signs of coolant leaking, you are the one who's going to have to find the actual location... because the view from where the rest of us are is rather poor!
