Question about 1999 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Temprature gauge shows hot all the time

This is true after it sits all night. It is at the 3/4+ level after being unused all night and when i start it in the morning it jumps up to the hot (almost in the red) right away. Any suggestions?

    this sendor is one hard item to get at so i haven't had the time to get the tools that i need and spend the day under the car trying to get at it. I have bought the part because i do anticipate this to be the problem. when i unplug the sendor unit, it does send a signal back to the gauge that it is cool instead of showing hot when it is plugged in.

    thanks for the help, i will let you know how it turns out.

1993 toyota pick up temperature gauge problem


Or the thermostat might be faulty which raises the temprature at which the thermostat starts to open. Giving a high reading on the gauge. if it gets too hot you might be at risk of blowing a pype or head gasket. If so replace thermostat. Check for a loose wire to the temp sensor as well. See if the radiator fan turns on when temp rises. If not check a fuse or the radiator fan temprature switch might be faulty.

I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the gauge inside tells me that the engine is over heating, no heat is coming from the heater when I turn it on, the fan for the engine is running at full blast, the engine...


Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

Engine overheating


is the radiator low on coolant? dont think you have a bad head gasket, does sound more like a bad cooling fan and/or thermostat

Gas guage-oxygen sensor?


The oxygen sensor has nothing to do with the fuel gauge. There are two possibilities for the gas gauge error, first it could be the in-tank gas level sensor or it could be a defective stepper motor which drives the gauge. A professional scan tool can determine the fuel level being sent by the in-tank sensor, if that disagrees with the gauge, then the stepper motor needs replacing.

Check the anti freeze level. It is to low the coolant sensor (not the temp. gauge sensor they are to different sensor) can make the computer to thing that the motor is to hot ( after it sits a short time the steam it the motor thinks it hot than what it is) making the fuel to lean. If it set longer but not to cold the sensor is not in the anti-freeze to will think it is colder and put to much fuel in.

Temprature gauge goes up and down


sounds like your low on coolant or you have air in the cooling system
water is needed for the sensor to show a true value and if your low or have air you sensor will at times because of the thermostat opening
go up and down. hope that got it

Its definitly a bad reading, you would know if your vehicle is overheating, you can usually smell it right away.I would say its your temperature gauge sending unit is defective, check the wires to see if they are well connected or broken. ask a backyard mechanic for assistance.
