SOURCE: 96 ford contour, temp gauge not working

first and foremost check the fuse box. there is a fuse for guages. The temp sensor is somewhere on the manifold and it will have a hard wire with probably a spring around it for protections that runs from the engine to the instrument cluster. You can remove the temp sensor and use a heat gun or propain heat and see if you get any kind of response. I suspect if all your other gauges are working the fuse is good. Most temp sensors do not use power only for lighting of the gauge, It just sends a resistance change to the water temp bulb and it moves the gauge. Is it a seperate gauge or in your insturment cluster? could be simple as a crushed line or the sensor went bad. It is normally self contained. I suspect it is a gauge and not a dummy light? if you can not get the one working in the instrument cluster I suggest going to and autoparts store and replace it which is very easy to do. You can remove the old sensor from the block and reinstall the new on in its place and run the cable back through where the first one was and mount the gauge in another area, It is very important to know the water temp since most computers use this info for setting the correct fuel to air mixture in a closed loop system. That is a diffrent sensor but you need to know the temp yourself to keep from blowing a head gasket or worse which can cause you lots of money to repair, I prefer to mount my own gauge seperate from the cluster, best of luck

SOURCE: my jag wont start

It could be an ignition related issue or fuel.
When it doesn't start does it crank, do you have the ignition lights?
The most common problem of intermittant no star probems is the crank sensor on the front of the engine, they can break down over a period of time and fail when warm. if not then I would fit a fuel pressure guage to the car and run it. Then see what the reading is when warm. If it is nothing (should be 38-40) then I would replace the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pumps typically don't fail intermittantly, they just fail!

SOURCE: 87 jag xj6. Brake pedal spongy goes all the way

If the brake lines and fluid is clear then you may have to look at the brake booster found at the other end of the brake pedal under the hood...

1994 cutlass Ciera... I just swapped engines 3.1 from a 96 to a 94...everything went great, except the temperature gage doesn't work. I see in the 94 there is a sending unit on the back head just...


Your 94 engine has separate coolant temp sensor and gauge sender. The 96 engine incorporates both in the engine coolant temp sensor. The coolant temp sensor is near the t-stat, below the throttle body. Check to see how many wires are in this plug. If it only has two, you may be able to use the plug from the 96 motor and wire it into the wire where the original sensor was. You should be able to just color match. Not sure if you can get away with this but the 96 plug should have a third wire, and it's woth a try.

I have a 96 Monte Carlo and it's overheating. The


Replace the thermostat. After that, if problem persists, feel the radiator with engine at normal operating temp. If part of it feels cool, this would indicate a restricted radiator, Very common.Also purchase a block tester, available at napa or other reputable parts store for about thirty dollars. Follow directions, cheapest way to find head gasket breech into cooling system. Good luck!

HOW DO YOU OPEN THE GLOVEBOX ON A 1994 XJ6 SPORTS JAG ?


Since this car doesn't have a glove box, you don't open it. Most 1994 cars used what used to be the glove box space to install the passenger air bag. Later cars solved the space problem, and the glove box came back.

At what tempreture must the jags engine run on the tachometer in the car?


Hi there,

The Tachometer is used to report how many Rotations Per Minute (RPM) the engine is running at. The number will vary depending on your speed.

There is also a temperature gauge available on most models for engine temperature. It too can vary depending on engine speed, duration, elevation, etc. As long as it's below 212 degrees, you will be fine

Regards

Mike

I had the same problem. Had to replace the catalytic convertor. The JAG one is very expensive, but my local machanic 'built' one and it passes emissions tests and runs ok now.
