More than likely you need to replace the sensor. if you are not noticing a really warm to hot hose, then the sensor is bad.

It could be the head gasket, thermostat, or low coolant

My 05 DeVille Keeps running Hot! Temp Gauge Goes Up And Down..Then Level out today.. So it's possible the thermostat Is Bad..


start there replace the thermostat

replace the temp sender
make sure the engine cooling fan comes on and spins fast enough
check for old or soft hoses and how tight the clamps are

if temp is still up and down might be
air or a leak in the system

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

Temperature gauge


check the circuit to the tem p sender unit by removing the wire at the sender and turning on the ignition touch the wire to the head . The gauge should got o hot. This indicates that the wire is ok . Remove and replace the sender unit as it is shorting out inside and is not showing a resistance. The higher resistance __cold water --the lower the gauge reading. The lower resistance the more current allowed through so the gauge goes up

99 mercury cougar v6 2.5L, temp gauge is reading hot after thermostat change why? is it a air bubble or is it a bad temp. sending unit? any other ideas? please help


May be a defective thermostat or place in the wrong direction. If it's properly installed, might want to check the fan operation which may be producing the overheating.
If fan is good, one way to remove air in the coolant system is to run vehicle while all heaters on. take extra coolant and stop along the way to top off if needed. While driving, keep listening for the fan to begin running when vehicle reaches high temperatures.
If you continue to experience overheating, may want to take to a local known repair shop for further troubleshooting.

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

My 2004 sentra is overheating the thermostat has been replaced the spark plugs have been replaced and i have flushed the radiator with no avail. my water pump is not leaking and seems to be running fine....


You need to check the fan on the radiator. Also check the nozzles for the input and output from the radiator. If the nozzle at the radiator inlet is not hot, then the problem is in the cooling system. If the nozzle from the radiator is hot, then the problem is in the radiator. Be careful not to burn yourself.

Temp gauge goes to hot and engine looses power.


hi.. your coolant temp sensor may be getting a bad reading, it also opperates as a compensator so it may effect the power of the vehicle.. check that the engine is actualy hot when it says and your car will probably run alot better if you change it anyway..
