Replaced head gaskets on pontiac trans am 1997 lt1 eng now its over heating


trapped air. When temp needle climbs to 1/4 way, loosen coolant temp sensor to bleed off trapped air in cylinder heads. Air is gone once coolant starts to stream out, but only open slightly at a time. May have to do in increments as trapped air will cause rapid overheat

I have a 2006 expedition 5.4 the temp gauge stays on cold whats wrong?


check your coolant. the temp is the water temp. Your radiator is out of water? you`ll burn out your water pump. Also check to see if your radiator fans are running constantly.

2004 Grand Cherokee Temp Gauge fluctuates and Chk Eng ite comes on


I would check that the circulating water pump connected to the radiator is working properly. Why else is the temperature fluctuating? Get a computer read on that engine- a free diagnosis from the service department at the dealer should take about two minutes and tell you everything. Only the dealer can pull up the total diagnosis, because certain codes can only be recovered by the brand equipment. NOT Autozone

Overheating


it could very well be a bad gauge. when it shows the engine to be overheated or at the least very hot, check the actual temp at the water outlet where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. use a non contact thermometer to check the temp so as not to get burned in the process. if the thermometer reads way different than the gauge, the gauge is bad.

2004 Impala ls temperature dash gauge


fans came late on those car,like 212 and second fan comes on at 224,you reprogram it to come a lot sooner,,other thing is there might be gunk inside the block,and coolant has hard time to pass through,and staying longer than enough in block temp goes high,even tough the radiator is doing it's job,it is just coming out block lot hotter than it suppose to be,and gauge read the block not the radiator

I RECENTLY REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT IN A 1996 FORD EXPLORER 4.0 4WD. THE HEAT WAS WORKING FINE AND THE GAUGE STARTED MOVING UP TO HOT AND THEN BACK DOWN TO THE COOL MARK WHILE DRIVING. AFTER COMPLETION I...


i wonder if possibly a defective thermostat, that it is sticking open.
to bench test thermostat place in a pot,if you have a candy thermometer all the better ,place in cool water and bring to boil checking temp.it should open alittle at a time until being fully open at what ever temp it is rated at
then slowly add cold water and it should close in a similar fashion

Check gages light is on


the check gauges light means exactly that, look at your gauges, there is something wrong, look all the gauges when the engine is running, usually the temp gauge is to high, is the vehicle overheating, is the check eng. light on, make sure all the gauges are reading normal, the check gauges light is there to get your attention, see what it wants.

Fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas


I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.
