Both oil and water tempture not picking heat up then the water tempture goes up and down in secounds car tells me to stop now gone back to not picking heat up

Since you didn't mention the car overheating, it's most likely a wiring problem in the oil pressure/water temp circuit. Just to be safe, check your coolant level and oil level when cold.

Try wiggling the wires on the water temp sensor and oil pressure sensor. Possible the engine computer or wiring running to it is faulty. These sensors may be on on different circuits or interconnected. Hard to tell without a wiring diagram.

Is the check engine light on? If yes, have someone pull the trouble codes and see what you get. Most ECM/PCMs have "hidden" codes that will only show with a scanner.

Are you sure the oil gauge is for temperature and not pressure?

I would check the coolant level too. If you have some air in the system it could cause the water temp issue.

Water tempture goes up and down in secounds then car tells me to stop oil tempture not working

This sounds as though you have a low coolant level. Do seek professional advice, as you are likely to seize the engine.

97 chevy malibu 3100 engine, what should the voltage be to the coolant tempture sendor be?

The ECT is a two wire sensor, a 5-volt reference signal is sent to the sensor and the signal return is based upon the change in the measured resistance due to temperature. The coorect way to test this sensor is by OHMs, not voltage. See the chart below.

The engine temp sensor is near the thermostat toward the front of the engine. Is the car actually running hot? I would measure the actual water temp and be sure before I started just replacing sensors.

Code po116 , tempture guage stays on cold, both fans are runing put 2 thermostes new. possible codes po520 po340

it peobably needs a new coolant temp. sensor thats what the po116 stands for. or it could be loose connector or wire short, but a bad sensor would be a good guess
