Either you installed it wrong, or it's bypassing, allowing coolant to flow all the time, or you put a 160 degree thermostat in instead of a 195 degree.

Thermostat is MISSING or cooling fan run constantly. Its an electrical fan and should run only when needed therefore over cooling. Good Luck contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Truck never reaches operating temperature


low operating temperatures is an indication of an air lock in the cooling system
gauges need the sender unit to be fully immersed in coolant to work but if they are not then the variable resistance material in the sender bulb cannot accurately relate to the coolant temperature
example if you have leak develop in a good system and you do not regularly scan your gauges like a good drive will do. it is possible that you will smell a dying engine yet when yo look at the gauge it will be reading cool to cold because the coolant has dropped to a point where the sender is no longer in contact with the coolant

Why does the temperature gauge on my 1995 Chevy K2500, 5.7L read 150 degrees ?


If you replaced the SENSOR and not the gauge SENDER, there's your answer.

The SENSOR sends the computer (ECM, PCM, ECU, etc.) the engine temp so it can make the adjustments to the fuel, timing etc.

The gauge SENDER makes the gauge read what temperature the engine coolant is.

Hope the helps.

Looking for the temperature sensor on my 1999 honda Odyssey because the temp gauge has been stuck on high since I bought it 4 months ago. What else could be the problem?


USA answer, not in usa , ignore my post or post country?
it can only be 3 problems, alldata.com covers the simple tests.
1: bad sender (if scan tool shows ECT reads right, its not this)
2: bad wires (conns) ECU/pcm to gauge.
3:bad gauge.
see:
factory FSM or alldata.com.

here is your type system, its no longer independent like in older years
quote:
The coolant temperature information is conveyed to the instrument panel, through the PCM, from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) gauge sending unit. To test the gauge sending unit, first test the gauge operation to make sure the problem is not in the gauge or gauge wiring.
end quote.

my guess ? bad connection to I/P gauge cluster (rear)
do this only after scanning (any scan tool works) the ECU OBD2 port to see if temperature is normal at the ECT but Guage lies.
that is it. only testing wires an gauge, works from this point.

2000 escort no heat, running temperature is normal


Make sure coolant level is full you can still have normal gauge readings but yet low or no heat if system is not totally full. Second- feel your heater hoses-are they both real hot? Is just one real hot and the other not? Do you have auto heat control or manual? Could also be plugged heater core, bad blend door motor, switch and etc.

My 91 cutless ran out of gas one day and has never ran right since. Replaced ever sensor on the car, fuel pump every thing. Runs good for 2 or 3 days and then it won't stay started. Went out few mouths...


You may have loaded a fuel line or connector up with contaminants. What else is happening during the second or 3rd day of running? Is it running low on fuel? Try to make a list of your gauge set! It only makes sense.

Temperature gauge was reading at start low then to normal temperature but now goes up to readings 250 back down to 180 back up again to 225 it seems the readings are all over the place.What is needed to...


This sounds to me like your coolant temperature sensor/ sender is going bad allowing for your gauge to go all over the place. Also on these 87 - about 91 or so they had issues with the wiring shorting out. Basically the wires had no protection on them they would rub against the metal allowing for failure.
