SOURCE: temperature gauge goes up and oil light goes on

It's overheating.  check thermostat and water pump, also radiator coolant levels.  once you get it running at normal temp again take it to the shop and have them do a chemical test to see if the head gasket was damaged or the block was warped or cracked as this usually happens when your car overheats.

SOURCE: 2000 temperature gauge stuck on hot

The temp gauge stuck on hot, this sounds like a bad temperature sensor or a bad wire going to sensor, The only other thing could be the gauge.
This is a 2000 Honda civic. the first thing i would look at would be the sensor, follow radiator hoses to engine block. At the engine you will see where the hoses go onto engine. the hoses will go to housings.There is where you will locate the coolant temp sensor. make sure the connection is good.
The next test is to see if the gauge is bad. try first jumping the connections with a small piece of wire and key on, watch gauge for movement, then try one connection terminal at a time.connect to ground and see if it moves. then try the other connector and ground. if the gauge does not move then gauge is bad.
I think the cluster is bad. if the gauge does not go down to cold when the ignition is turned off then the cluster is bad. even with a bad sensor or shorted wire the gauge should go down to cold when the key is turned off.
Good day. hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: I had a water leak on my 1996 GMC K1500 and ran hot. Fixed problem truck running good, but the temperature gauge is pegged high even with a new sensor. How do I fix the gauge?

Pull off the negative battery cable and unplug the sensor. See if the gauge needle returns to normal. Try tapping on the cluster to unstick the needle. No luck? Replace the temperature gauge.

EXPEDITION STARTS UP FINE BUT DIES SOMETIME WAIT IT RESTARTS


There is a cold start "sequence" which is suppose to reset the engine controls as if you had a choke. This sequence is triggered by water temperature sensors on the engine.

This sensor is different from the one operating the dash gauge. It is probably stuck on a "hot" setting and the engine controls do not reset.

Heater will not get hot


This can only be one of a few things, so I would recommend that you make sure that the radiator coolant level is full, then check the engine thermostat to ensure that it is not stuck open. ( The thermostat over time, can become corroded and get stuck in the open position, when it should open and close regularly to regulate the engine temperature). If that is not the issue, then it sounds like you have a damper issue. The damper control regulates your preference of hot/cold temperature in the cabin of the vehicle when you adjust the hot/cold switch on heater/ac controls.
I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

1997 Honda CRV temperature gauge spikes to Hot


You have to thank the Gauge that shuts down your engine when hot bec. it wont knock...you have to clean your radiator and see if the coolant inside it run through the radiator holes to the engine water jacket to make sure your engine will not over heat...For the fans, find the fan relay...it's under the hood in the fuse box...

Its possibly the thermostat , check by watching the temperature gauge if equipt with one and see if the engine is around 195 deg F or 95 deg C if not the thermostat is open all the time , ( stuck open ) not allowing it to get hot enough to get heat, this is the most likely cause.. Another is air temp door not moving to the hot position. But you said no other problems...The heater core may also be plugged or restricted , you can flush it out with a garden hose ect. good luck and hope this was helpful...
