Temperture guage going up and then down loss of coolant as well


The temp gage is going up and down due to the lost coolant, this creates air bubbles that get around the engine coolant temp sensor, air doesn't transmit heat energy very well so the gage quickly drops. Have the cooling system pressurized with a special tool to locate the source of the leak. Common area of leak is the engine coolant pump driver shaft seal. Also look for white crusty looking stains, this is dried engine coolant.

Good Afternoon, Why is my temperture gage staying at C? Also my heater is not heating lke it should. when I stop at a light it blows cold air. can someone please tell me what could be wrong?


It could be your thermostat. If it is stuck open and you are driving in cold temperatures your car will not warm up properly. As for your heater, it shares the coolant from inside the engine and radiator so if your engine isn't warming up it won't warm up either.

The heater put out very little heat. also the temperture gauge moves very little. is this a bad thermostat. or could it be a bad heat control value.


If the Temperature gauge is moving less than before, its your Thermostat. If the Engine Temperature is the same, then your heat control valve is not opening or a duct flap(called a door) is not moving under the dash.

Having a Bad thermostat will affect how controls on the engine work and when they work.

1993 voyager New themastat, new water valve, have heat sitting still, in motion cold air, can stop and rev. up motor get heat again. Suspect autozone (made in china) waterpump.


the problem might be the water pump but unlikely unless your engine temperture gage spikes, the problem might be your heatercore. it is a small radiator in your car to heat up the air, they become clogged but dribre in your antifreeze, you should try cleaning it out first before replaceing anything

Saturn vue 2004 what is aECt connector and lines?


The ECT is the "Engine Coolant Temperature". There should be 2 sensors on the engine, one for the ecm (engine computer) and another one for the temp gauge on the dash. I dont have the info to tell you where they are, but near the thermostat housing and the cyl head is the logical place.

sounds like the gauge and sensor r workin properly....but you do have to address that coolant leak...that causes your temp to fluctuate cuz you cooling capacity is being reduced

Temperture Gage


First of all, it doesn't sound like your thermostat is working correctly to keep good hot/warm air coming , so I would change that, or have it changed for better heating inside. If you lift the hood & look in front of your radiator, On the engine side, you'll see a fan attached to, or in front of the radiator. It won't come on until the coolant temperature gauge gets up to proper operating temperature. Without getting in to too much detail, have your thermostat changed, and my guess is everything else will start working as it should, and whoever does the work, should know enough to check the fan operation when they do the thermostat.
