Check engine light can be any number of reasons, dirty air filter, need oil change, or more serious engine trouble. The temp gage issue is normal, this is the computer resetting itself. My car the fuel gage and temp gage do this...don't be alarmed. Take it to Advance Auto Parts and they can run a free engine diagnostics test on it to see which error code is tripping your check engine light.
I'm still not inclined to look past the area of the alternator. Check out the wiring going to the plug for the alternator for any signs of damage or broken insulation. Also, have an auto parts store test the alternator and while they are checking alternator output, move the wires around a litte and see if the output changes any. It sounds like a wiring problem to me. Hope this helps and good luck.
Does the vehicle in gage into 4 wheel drive at all? You can tell by putting it in 4 wheel drive and see how it moves. You can feel the difference. Also it does sounds like a short somewhere in the wiring under the dash
Check your thermostat and check to see if the electric motor has power or not may be a damaged wire or a fried fan motor,you can also check the fan motor by running a power lead from your battery.good luck
The prob seems like you have connected the power to your stero from the wrong place. You cut into live a wire for the power, this should be connected at the ACC on your fuse panel. Also make sure you stero has a good ground! Frankster016
Seems like a timing sensor maybe out. Get a computer diagnosis done on the car from a local garage and check that all electronics are functioning properly. That might identify the problem. Also maybe try some of the petrol additives which clear the petrol lines out. Simply add a bottle when u next fill up. Hope that helps.
