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.

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem

Why won't the oil and temperature gauge work on


you should switch the temperature sensor and oil pressure sensor you had on your first engine,because your new engine must come with the light indicator dashboard so the sensor of your new engine are not compatible with your gauges....lipak!...

1998 ford expedition: engine ovr heat light comes on- soon after heater goes from hot air to cold. Pull over cycle key all lights go to normal soon after heater goes to working. replaced radiator- fan...


Have you tried replacing the overflow tank cap. These don't hold pressure as it should which will cause the temp to rise. EX: the cap rating is 15psi, and the cap has a defect which only allows the cap to hold 10-12psi. That water has to be pressurized by the cap for the water not to flow out. Also, does the temp gauge reach a high level or just the temp light comes on. This will give a better idea of the problem. If the gauge is normal but the light is on, sounds like a temperature switch is bad.

98 ford Exped. oil and engine light come on but go off on restart


did you check the transmission heat sensor or the intake air sensor these can be incorporated with temp guage on some vehicles

but theres also the problem of alternator is getting ready to give only
take an electro meter and hook up to cigarette lighter with a 2 post power maker and watch the voltage as your driving try to recreate the conditions that brought this about if the reading changes dramatically this will tell your alternator will need to be replaced at some point also dead cells in battery creates this little bump in electrical
