Yes a cold running engine will turn the check engine light on, the 1st thing to do is replace the thermostat.

Why does the temp gauge indicate the car is running hot when it is not?


Ahh ... the gas gauge / fuel level gauge does not work, either.

Maybe you need to replace the motors that are behind those dials. People are getting charged $300-$500 to have the fuel gauge replaced when the problem really is the little motor - 5 or 6 of them for less than $30. 2003 Buick LeSabre owners are having the same problem with their fuel gauges being erratic.

Why does my audi tt temp. gauge go hotter than engine temp. fans work changed thermosat , temp sensor ,and water is ok ?


Hi
i suppose i have to ask how it is that you know these temperatures are different?
is the car actually overheating?
Have you had it scanned for any fault codes?
You may have a defective temp guage...check it by removing the sender plug and see if the guage falls totally to zero...earth the guage wire and see if the guage goes to max.

Engine light is on but van runs good and temperature guage does not move but its not over heating


Could be engine coolant temperature sensor. Easy fix but that will make your temp guage read wrong and can affect heat output in vehicle.

Check engine light, not registering temp


Hi, You'll need to get the trouble codes read. I'm guessing the code probably has something to do with your engine coolant temperature sensor or the engine coolant temperature sending unit.

The temperature gauge on my 2002 grand prix dose


the temperature sending unit on a 97 grand prix 3800 gt(which is also the coolant temperature sensor) is not accurate. the sending unit part of this sensor only sends info to the guage on the dash. the coolant sensor part sends info to the computer of the car. it is located under thermostat and somewhat difficult to get at. i had put a brand new one in and my temperature on my dash is all over the place---even with good thermostat and properly bled system. when i hook up a scanner to my computer, the coolant sensor is sending the computer(ecu??) what seems to be the right temp. anywhere from 194 degrees to 217 when hot. the guage however on dash go from 160 to 260 in less than 2 minutes.

If the temperature guage is not working and engine light is on sh


Not really because the thermostat may be fine and the light will still be ON. If the guage is NOT working it will trigger check engine light. First you should fix guage, it probably needs a temperature sensor or sensor wire may be broken. Check it out, good luck.
