Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

How would I know if my thermostat is broken


If you have a temperature gauge on your dash you can read the engine coolant temperature. After overnight the gauge should be low and during about a 15 minute warm up cycle should achieve about mid range on the dash gauge. It should stabilize at this point with minimal fluctuation through out normal driving.

If you do not have a temperature gauge use an OBDII scan tool where you can read out the engine temperature as you would read the gauge.

A passenger can observe the live readout on the scanner that are equipped with such features while you operate the car.

Hope this helps.?

First, Please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Then, Yes, there is a fuse that powers your gauges. Actually, there are two of them. They are both located in the left wiring harness junction block. (On left side of dash) One is marked "IPC/BFC ACC" and the other is marked "IPC/HVAC BATT". Both are red 10 Amp fuses.

GMC Envoy, dashboard gauges not working. Started with the gas gauge, then the battery, then the temperature, not the RPM. It seems like the gauges don't reset (or return to zero) when ignition is shut...


Could be a couple of things, one is your ignition switch may be going bad.

The other is, the little stepper motors on the back of the cluster, may be going too, both are very common.

By the way, normal operating temperature for the I6 engine is 210 degrees.

Can you please give me the tappet settings for a Honda civic 2004 1.6 Vtec please.


Do you mean 1.7L? I do not see a 1.6L in the manual. Instructions from autozone.com are pasted below.

lash:

Intake, 0.007-0.009 in (0.18-0.22mm).

Exhaust, 0.009-0.011 in. (0.23-0.27mm)

NOTE Adjust valves only when the cylinder head temperature is less than 100 degrees F.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Note the radio security code and the radio presets.
  3. Remove the ignition coil cover. Remove the ignition coils. Remove the throttle cable clamps and harness holder from the cylinder head cover.
  4. Remove the cylinder head cover retaining bolts. Remove the cylinder head cover from the engine.
  5. Remove the grommet from the upper cover and disconnect the camshaft position (CMO) sensor connector. Remove the upper cover.
  6. Set the number one piston at TDC. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be at the top, and the TDC marks on the pulley should line up with the top edge of the cylinder head.
  7. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number one.
  8. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be toward the exhaust side of the cylinder head.
  9. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number three.
  10. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise and bring the number four piston to TDC.
  11. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number four.
  12. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be toward the intake side of the cylinder head.
  13. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number two.
  14. Install the cylinder head cover.
  15. As required, reprogram the ECM/PCM engine idle characteristics. Be sure all electrical items are OFF.
  16. Start the engine. Hold the idle speed at 3000 RPM-s in park or neutral until the radiator fan comes on or the temperature reached 194 degrees.
  17. Let the engine idle for about five minutes with the throttle fully closed.
  18. If the radiator fan comes on during the five minutes, do not count this toward the five minute programming time.
  19. Set the clock.

Temperature gauge is fluctuating while driving.


I'm thinking the coolnat level is low, and this might be caused by a bad head gasket - At least $800 to fix - sorry.
