Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

Check gage light is on (temperature)

This light has been going on and off for a month. The gauge rises to 250+ degrees after the light goes on...then goes back down. Yesterday I heard a gurgling noise as the light came on. What is this and can I repair myself?

    A good idea but it seems that pressure is OK. Can't find coolant leak but added more and issue resolved. Have new gauge standing by. Thanks!

Checked for coolant leak...none. Replaced thermostat and added new coolant. Problem is resolved.

I don't have a solution to the problem, but another question.  Do you need to have a mechanic pressure test?

It is low on coolant...there could be a number of reasons,,,a stuck thermostat forcing the water out...,leaking water pump...leaking radiator or hose.....bad headgasket. some of this you could fix at home...you first need to locate the leak....pressure test the system....

Do you have a check engine light on? If not then you have a defective gage, the gage is a computer generated display and you will need to remove the instrument cluster and send it out to be rebuilt. Cost about $250

Changing gears and the temp gauge have nothing in common. First, check the coolant level. If gets low an air pocket in the engine will cause the gauge to go high, then back to normal. Next would be to check the wiring. could be the gauge/sensor wire is shorting to ground.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

1997 Hyundai Elantra has heat but temp gauge does not rise.


If the coolant is below a certain level, the temperature sensor will not read anything and the temp gauge will not rise. Replace the cap, and check that you have enough coolant in the system. If this does not solve the problem, you will need to test/troubleshoot the coolant temperature sensor.
