Why does the temperature gauge on my 1995 Chevy K2500, 5.7L read 150 degrees ?

If you replaced the SENSOR and not the gauge SENDER, there's your answer.

The SENSOR sends the computer (ECM, PCM, ECU, etc.) the engine temp so it can make the adjustments to the fuel, timing etc.

The gauge SENDER makes the gauge read what temperature the engine coolant is.

Hope the helps.

My 2007 honda accord which was bought a few months ago,the outside temperature gauge has stopped working, also i noticed a week earlier a spot of oil on my driveway which came from the car near the drivers...

the outside temp could be the outside sensor, if you don't worry about knowing the outside temp its no problem, the oil leak is something to look into and repair

2001 Dodge Durango- no oil pressure after

What was the code number? The oil pressure sensor isn't hard wired to the instrument. The oil pressure sensor is hard wired to pcm, the pcm makes the determination and sends serial data to instrument cluster telling it what to do with oil pressure gage. At the moment, I'm not sure where the oil pressure sending unit is located? It may be on top of engine at the back? In the diagram, the top wire should be ref voltage, key on, bottom wire should be a ground.
If you don't want to do testing yourself. Take it to different repair shop.

The first problem about the gauges and lack of power is most likely the ignition switch.
On the 5.3 there is actually 2 knock sensors on this engine and they reside under the intake plenum on the engine, so you have to remove the intake on the engine to get at them. If your truck actually does have a serviceable fuel filter it will be on the frame somewhere under the drivers door area. if you don't see it then it is internal in the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assy and does not require replacement unless the pump goes bad.

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My 2000 Jeep GC laredo had the same problem. I changed the oil pressure sensor (I think that is what it is called) and it now reads really high on my gauge but I havent had any more problems and I dont get that annoying ding when it hits zero anymore when I let off the throttle. In case you dont know, the sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine back towards the fire wall. You just have to disconnect the wiring harness and use a large socket to unscrew the sensor. Once you locate the sensor it should only take 5 minutes to replace. Hope this helps.

I have a '99 Voyager and the oil pressure sensor stays on and beeps at me while I am driving. It has plenty of oil. The oil was just changed 2 days ago and the oil pressure switch was changed 2 months ago....

The first thing to do, is take it back to your mechanic
and have them hook up a mechanical oil pressure
gauge. To find out the actual oil pressure,before any
serious damage results. As for the oil pressure sending unit, it's not that strange to get a bad one out
of the box. But lets eliminate the obvious first and have the gauge check done. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Ok, first thing to do is to spend the $10 for a manual oil pressure gauge, available at any parts store. Hook the gauge up to the port where the oil pressure sender is, and see if it acts the same way as your original gauge did. You can even place it inside the car if you wish, mounting it either permanently or temporarily, whatever your wish is. You may need an adapter to make it fit the port, available at the store that you bought the gauge from. If it doesn't act the same, you have the choice of keeping the added gauge, or having your instrument cluster checked out and repaired(which can get expensive). If you are indeed having oil pressure issues, then you could be suffering from a filter that's too restrictive, a faulty oil pump, or need to go to a thicker oil, given the higher mileage on your car.
