Thermostat or water pump?


Sounds like a thermostat is being sticky. A water pump issue should cause the vehicle to over heat quickly while driving if it is not pumping.

Why would 2002 ford ranger 3.0L temp guage stay on extreme cold after water pump replacement?


i would think there is an air lock in the coolant system , have you run the engine whilst at stand still and opened the heater control to the hot position and leave to run for 10 mins or so , let cooldown then check coolant level

Temp guage shows overheating and DIC shows normal


Check the temp. switch the one that goes to the guage either a bad switch or a short in the wire.

1990 honda accord temp gauge above hot limit.


Hi there,

Firstly - DO NOT run engine, when guage reads hot, as this will cause costly damage to head gasket & alloy engine head.

The fact that guage takes 1min to read HOT, would confirm the guage IS working properly.

So, other components which are likely to cause hot readings (in this order) are:

- lack of coolant (or leakage somewhere): is there sufficient green coolant at the correct level? Top up mixture to correct level. Repair any leaks.

- collapsed radiator hose: when engine is cold, start engine, then quickly watch both upper & lower radiator hoses to see if either begins to flex inwards (collapse). Replace if either hose is collapsed.

- bad/incorrect thermostat rating : when replacing thermostats, you must ensure it is of the SAME temp rating (they all differ).

- Incorrect Temp sensor rating: the ratings of this sensor must be within manufacturer's spec's.

- bad waterpump: the engine relies on the waterpump to distribute the coolant throughout the entire system. If waterpump is faulty, coolant will not flow quick enough, causing overheating.

If you still believe all of the above components are OK, then have your cooling system "pressure tested". This test should be done, before looking further at other electrical components.

Cheers,

91 gti 8valve overheating problem blows coolent smoke on the..


Hi,
I'm not familiar with your model to know if you have an engine temp guage or a light that would come on if the engine is overheated. You said the motor wasn't overheating under the hood... but you have an overheating problem? Maybe just a tad bit more info...
Are you losing coolant?
The water pump if bad, would probably leak or make terrible racket.
Just to take a shot at it, since you said it blows smoke through the dash... I'm assuming a kindof white smoke with a rather sweet smell? Have you noticed any wetness on the passenger floor at all? If yes to any of this, I would suspect as you mentioned, a leaking heater core. Hope this helps... Good luck!

Working on a 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette with the 3.4L in it. Recently I did the lower intake gasket cause it was leaking. Vehicle has 182,000 on it. Came back in with overheating problem, found out the...


One guess is there is air in the cooling system. The air pockets will cause temporary overheating (fluctuating guage).

It sounds like a bad head gasket is creating these air pockets.

Overheating


0k moon wizard, is the water pump leaking? There is a 'weep hole' under the pump. When it is on the way out (needs replacement) it will start to leak antifreeze there, and it will get worse. If u can get a small mirror and look under the center of the pump, it would be obvious if it was leaking or not. If the pump is going bad, u will see the leak, or evidence of it (corrosion, an obvious path of the leak, actual antifreeze leaking. If the pump isn't leaking or making a lot of noise (bearings shot), then it's not the water pump. There is antifreeze manufactured now that will work in GM (dex cool) vehicles and all others (the green stuff). If u don't see an actual leak, the thermostat was installed properly, the gauge shows it's in the normal zone, I'd have the temp sending unit checked since it's apparently not working properly, and that leaves the radiator. It probably is the problem, it could be plugged up w/ rust and corrosion, which would diminish the cooling ability. Let me know what u find. countrycurt0
