SOURCE: 2000 3.8 Impala keeps overheating even after

Sounds like there could be an air pocket in your cooling system. If the job was done by a mechanic take it back. If a "friend" helped you, tell him to rebleed the system. Also seems like your water pump might be bad. If it was overheating before changing the thermostat and is still doing the problem only worse then I would assume the pump needs to be changed. If the pump is bad, there is no doubt that air is in the system still and causing the overheating to occur even faster.

It is ok for your gauge to go to 1/4 when off. It is even some what normal. The gauge is going to its neutral position. Keep in mind it is also comon for the sending unit to fail in this year / make of vehicle.

I hope this helps.

Car temp gauge reads hot but it doesn't seem to be running hot. I have changed the thermostat, cooling fan sensor and temp gauge sensor, still reading almost hot to the red. The water is flowing through...

From your description, it does not sound like it is actually running hot.
Might be a faulty gauge or computer unit.
I hate to say it, but sometimes worth taking to the dealer to check annoying ones like this.

Engine temp

remove the wire from the temperature sender unit and earth it out on the engine . Turn on the ignition and see if the gauge goes to overheat. If it dose replace the temperature sender unit. If it doesn't replace the gauge.

My 1999 ventures temp gauge has gone all the way to the left and stayed there. what might cause that?

3 possible causes:

1 - The sending unit (sensor) has failed
2 - There is a fault in the wiring (break/short)
3 - The gauge itself has failed (least likely)

After my 96 ram 1500 318c.u. gets up to temp. the temp gauge keeps going up. it never has over heated but i dont drive it very far. ive replaced upper and lower hoses, thermastat and radiator cap. Im lost?...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. That would be my next guess. Maybe a bad coolant sensor. You might have a bad water pump as well. Make sure the fans are kicking on properly also. Check your radiator.

Gas gauge goes crazy . it goes up down stays in one spot then will move to empty then it goes back up . thought i had a half tank really had 3 gallons left

the fuel sending unit is bad and the bad thing is you have to remove the tank to get to it. the unit built in with the pump so it's kind a expensive

1999 Chevy Venture Problems

you have 4 water lines, they are 2 radiator hoses (top and bottom) the bottom one runs from the lower part of the radiator to the water pump, the top radiator hose runs from the upper part of the radiator to the thermostat housing

2 heater hoses, they go from the water pump to the firewall.

if you know which one has a hole then you should take the van to a parts store (if you can safely drive it that far) and show them, they can get the right one for you... and sometimes you can talk someone into putting it on for you.

as for the fluctuating gauges you probably need new sending units for the temp gauge and fuel gauge

1998 jeep grand cherokee cooling problem

Your thermostat is stuck closed. It needs to be changed right away. By the way the operating temp on that motor is 160 degrees so you are running hot you have just been lucky so far. Good Luck
