I have a problem with my car Peugeot 207 1.4 8 valve petrol which was serviced and had changed thermostat. Everything was fine until winter started, at temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius temperature...


This is totally normal. All radiators contain an antifreeze/ antiboil component when filled as per manufacturers instructions. This stabilizers the temp of the coolant, reducing fluctuations in temperature. The thermostat is heat responsive. Basically a piece of spring steel heated to a temperature then cooled, so as to retain the memory of when to react. Replacing the water temp sensor on this occasion was probably unnecessary, tho in saying that, I have replaced mine & friends with beneficial results.

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working


It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

Battery indicator light comes on above idle RPM, gauges start fluctuating.


The first thing you need to know is what the alternator output is when this starts happening.
It could be a faulty connection in the wiring harness, or a bad ground connection, or a failing alternator.

It appears the cap screws off? It doesn't look like a regular radiator cap. I looked at acdelco parts book.
If the cap is stubborn, cold engine, sometimes I use a pair of pliers with wide jaws, grip the cap and screw it off. I haven't seen your type cap, before. If this was my vehicle, I would certainly want to look in the radiator. I'd get that cap off, one way or the other. Of course, nobody wants to damage anything.

I would either go to a shop or buy a Infrared Thermometer and check the temp of the radiator and the upper radiator housing temp, that's a nice car and expensive to repair, but to blow the engine it would be worth nothing

Which side ofintake manifold does temperature gauge sending unit go on


Water Temperature Indicator Sender Unit
The water temperature indicator sender unit is installed on the engine into an engine coolant passage. The water temperature indicator sender unit reacts to the engine coolant temperature. Its resistance decreases as the engine coolant temperature increases.

Water Temperature Indicator Sender Unit Removal
swb~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not mix Standard (green) Coolant with Extended Life Coolant (orange). If mixing occurs, drain engine cooling system and refill with originally equipped coolant type. If this contamination occurs the service change interval on Extended Life Coolant will be reduced from 6 years/150,000 miles to 3 years/30,000 miles.
  1. Partially drain engine cooling system as described.
  1. Disconnect engine control sensor wiring (12A581) from water temperature indicator sender unit (10884) .
  1. Remove water temperature indicator sender unit.

Temperature gauge fluctuates and the heater blows cold air


Definitely check your fluid level in your radiator. Top it off all the way. I've seen that happen multiple times on cars that were low on anti-freeze. If that doesn't work try replacing your thermostat. It's cheap and the easiest place to start if topping off the fluid doesn't get you fixed up.
