Sending unit may be disconnected on the engine... Check by the upper radiator hose and or the thermostat... Otherwise, the guage may be disconnected or defective.

Temperature gauge redlines and check gauge light comes one only after driving 35 miles or so.I already replaced termostat and did a coolant flush. Water pump is not leaking no leaks any were. I am...


Try to change out the CTS or coolant temperature sensor to see if that rectifies the gauge problem. If the engine doesn't seem to boilover or malfunction, it may very well be a false high heat indicator problem. in the electronic side of the coolant system.

My honda accord wagon smells hot i stop running car, ther,s no leaks do i need a termostat?


You may have a bad thermostat or a weak water pump or a clogged radiator. Smell does not indicate if its hot. The gauge or coolant light might suggest its getting hot. You may have a fuel control issue that is overheating the catalytic converter which would smell or an oil leak that is dripping onto a hot surface causing a smell. You may have a real small coolant leak that you cant see that could cause this also.

Termostat


Need to change the termostatic, this will make the car heat up, plus increase your fuel milage, plus check on changing the sending unit under the hood, that send the signal to the gauge.

Temp gauge stay on cold.


Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.

Termostat


Simple! Your motor will Overheat and Stop causing you to have to get it Rebuilt. If you Follow the Top Radiator Hose to the Block there is a Bell Housing that the Hose Connects to. Remove the Hose and the Bell housing. Thermostat is Under the Bell housing, Looks kinda like a U.F.O.! LOL
