Wanting to know why my 2014 nissan maxima is not starting after receiving oil change today?


check the oil level in the sump to ensure that oil was added after draining it for the change
There is a oil pressure sensor / oil level gauge ( different to the oil pressure gauge sender unit) that will not allow the engine to start if there is no oil pressure sensed or no oil level sensed
check for wiring connections as well

The gas and temperature gauges are stuck on 2000 nissan maxima se


check the sensor probe for the temp.. replace with new one if it is bad . and for the gas level gauge , it is inside the gas tank connected to the fuel pump . you have to check the float and the coil . replace the whole fuel pump unit if it is bad. thanks ..

Vw golf 2001 temperature fluctuates from 1/2 on temp gauge to 3/4, the temp cycles like this regularly. is this a cooling system issue or an electric fan issue. thanks


first thing to check is your coolant level. a lot of fluctuation will occur if the coolant level is low. if it is, be sure to find the leak to avoid engine damage. other causes can be plugged radiator, faulty thermostat, etc. but start with the coolant level.

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.

2004 Nissan Maxima temp gauge fluctuation


well the temperature control gage is connected to the engine block and consists of 1 wire for the reading of the motor heat either the sensor is going bad or you need to check your coolant levels in the radiator make sure the engine is cool before opening the thermostat cap to the radiator so not to get burnt ...also make sure the wire itself is not grounding out on the engine block to give the gage to give such a readout look to the engine and usually on the drivers side lower the plug wires you should see a plug with a wire coming from it ensure the wire is not rubbing on anything .

2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally


Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.
