Check your transmission fluid and filter. If it is low or not getting cooled properly it will cause similar problems.

Bar leak will fix a leak but stop up radiator cores and heater core when engine run hot when accelerating. engine coolant system has a restriction not allowing coolant circulate to remove heat.when engine overheating you will lose power and compression.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

It could be a faulty thermostat. Did it do the same thing before u replaced the t-stat? It sounds like it's sticking closed, then all of a sudden it opens, coolant flows correctly. I'd consider changing it again. Check to make sure parts store is giving u the correct temperature thermostat also. Maybe it's too high for your Ford, delaying the opening.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

SOURCE: Temperature gauge fluctuates

First of all you have a bad heater core that needs to be replaced. Second you may have a bad temperature sensor. Make sure the radiator if full of water

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Ford Explorer that is overheating.

Did you burp the system? these engines have a problem getting all the air out of the system. Look for a bleed valve near the thermostat and crack it openwhen the engine is cold. I believe they also had a problem with the head gasket on that year if it over heated. good luck be sue to get the air out of the heater and the radiator they can be a problem.

Where is the thermostat fuse at


There is a fuse for the gauges, If no other gauges work then I'd suspect the fuse. If only the temp gauge is acting up, look at the temp sensor wiring or the sensor itself.

No heat coming from the vents.


If it is a manual system--sounds like coolant low ie: air bubble in system. If it is ATC system, Check Codes, if no failure codes, coolant may be low--air bubble in system--most Durango's have air bleeders in system.

I have a 2008 Chevy Colorado and today my temp


when a temp gauge drops to cold ,it indicates a problem in the cooling system
temp gauge sender units need water to activate the resistance that makes the gauge read so a falling gauge indicates no water around the sender unit --- air lock in the system--faulty wire connection to the gauge sender unit
the ac unit is not connected to the temp gauge so there may be another separate problem there
the temp sensor is an entirely different unit to the temp gauge sender unit and the short term working would be from an altered coolant level from changing that sensor --air lock in system
the temp sensor connects to the ECM to activate the fans and monitor engine operating temp so as to keep the air/fuel mixture exact for the engine conditions
the temp sender unit just makes the temp gauge read
a faulty thermostat will either be stuck open and the engine temp will take a long time to rise or it will be stuck closed and that will cause an overheat very quickly

1996_gmc_sierra Heat gauge started going from 260 degrees back to normal. I replaced heat sensor then thermostat. This summer had complete radiator and cap put in. The gauge says its running at 230 an


My Mountaineer had a similar problem. When driving it, the temp needle would slowly go up and up for like 3 minutes then it would come down within about 30 seconds. Then it would slowly rise again. just kept doing this over and over but it never went too high. My gauge didn't have numbers on it but it would go up about half way (not near the too hot level though) then fall back down to about a quarter of the way on the gauge. Found out that the fan clutch was bad on my radiator fan. It was not engaging and disengaging at the right times. New fan clutch solved the problem and probably saved the engine from overheating eventually if it had gotten even worse.

You have air in the cooling system, it needs bleeding, this is best done from the heater hoses. you cannot have a heating or cooling sysem that is not pressurised. no water no heater no demister no temp guage

First when vehicle is cold like in the morning check and make sure that the vehicle has enough coolant/ antifreeze in radiator and reservoir. If coolant is need use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. You will need some time to do this let car run at idle until the temp guage is in the middle NOT+ normal operating temperature. At this point if the thermostat should be in the open position. Let vehicle run and check to make sure that radiator fan comes on. This should come on when guage is about midway/half way. If temperature rises above half going to h/hot and fan doesn't come on, you either have a BAD FAN BAD FAN SWITCH BAD FAN RELAY OR BLOWN FAN SWITCH FUSE. You will need to check all of the following I will help if its needed. If fan comes on and doesn't go off and vehicle continues to get hot even with fan running. Feel radiator hoses and see if the lower radiator hose is cool/cold. If it is you have thermostat that stuck closed. Replace thermostat and fix problem. If all the above is good and vehicle continues to over heat. THE BAD NEW IS THAT YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET /CRACKED HEAD /BROKEN WATER JACKET. Basically you will need a HEAD JOB at least a head gasket. ONe tell tail sign of this is oil looking like milkshake/chocolate milk-a creamish while residue in oil or antifreeze. Contact if you need hel0p. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
