Temp gage lite goes on & off. Needle rises & falls. what is problem? Can I fix?

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?

    Coolant must have evaporated since there is no system leak. Adding more solved issue.

The gurgling is coolant bubbling out due to the temp.

I have a 1993 mercury' marquis. The floor boads of the front part of the car get hot. And the thermostat keeps falling to c and rising to half way and falling on gage. Can u please help?! Thanks


possible no water in the engine and it is overheating
this is indicated by the temp gauge rising and falling
temp gauge sender units need to be immersed in water full time to get a reading so if it goes up that is in water and when it falls back that is in nothing or steam
hot engine would account for hot floor

With vehicle cold I put it in gear and go maybe 100' and temp gauge is topped out. When I stop the temp returns to normal in 3 seconds.


the temp gauge sends the power from the gauge to the sender unit which is a variable ground. That means that as the coolant heats up , the resistance in the sender is decreased and the current through the gage increases ans so the needle goes up
when that wire is shorting out some where the gauge will go to hot and when that short is removed the needle comes back down to cold
so that means that you will need to trace the wire along for where it is rubbed through or get an accredited auto electrician in to find the fault

Why does my temp gauge rise to hot when the van is off - but as soon as the key is switched on it goes back to the cold end of the temp gauge


The gauge is unpowered when you turn the key off, so the needle can go wherever it wants to. When you turn the key on, the gauge gets power and will show the actual engine coolant temperature.

2005 nissan sentra temp gage keeps rising and falling within a few blocks. All fluids are full> HELP!


water temp sensor may need to be replaced. If there is no check engine warning, try to borrow an external water temp gauge if you would like to check it yourself.

Tempurature gage goes to first line and then falls back down


Hi if you have ruled the thermostat out then yes i would go for the water pump being at fault,
Hope this helps

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.

Water temp gauge stay on 160 degree


should be fine as long as the gage goes up and down and you get heat it should be fine make sure you consider the outside temp. as the engine starts it will heat up get really hot the the thermostate opens and the gage will fall and should but not always stay low it could just be the ip gage.

Check gage light is on (temperature)


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....
