Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Temperature Reading High and over

Hi, I have a temperature problem with my Hyundai Sportswagon 1996 model. The temp needle sprang to over the H gauge. I found the coolant tank was completely empty. I added coolant to the tank and about 2 cups of demineralised water to the radiator as the radiator was empty of liquid. Now when I drive for some 5 minutes the temp rises to the red H and over, again.

With thanks,

You should check to see if your oil is a bit milky. sounds like an internal crack in side of the engine. if its burning and not leaking out on the ground then, this may be the problem... also, you could be experiencing a thermostat malfunction as well. check that water pump for seal leaks.

Code active, unplug coolant sensor dash gauge stops reading


What make vehicle ? some vehicles have two coolant sensors . One for temp. gauge an another one for the ECM / PCM input. Do you have a check engine light lit ?

A DTC will be set if an abnormal reading occurs, P0116 for sensor performance, P0117 low input or

P0118 for a high input. The coolant temperature sensor temperature reading should closely match the

air charge/manifold temperature reading on a scan tool if the engine has not been run for over an hour.
The sensor circuit can be checked for proper voltage using a voltmeter.

When jackaroo 1988 is motoring where does the needle in the temperature gauge normally be


If your temp gauge has only the cold (C) or hot (H) letters then the operating range would be the width of the needle under 1/2 way between c and h. If it remains steady at slightly over 1/2 way that would be just the setting of the gauge. How to get to know where the needle would sit at a specific position in relation to water temp. Do the following
Remove the temp sender unit and attach an earth wire to the body of the unit to earth. Place the sender unit in a container of water up to the threads .Put a mercury thermometer in the container beside the sender unit Apply heat to the container and watch the gauge needle move in relation to the thermometer reading. Operating temp will be about 80 degrees C on the thermometer and that would be about 1/2 way on the gauge.

Seems to me it's the engine coolant temperature sensor or the connecting wire to it. Some Model/Year (MY) hyundai's have TWO (2) temperature sensors.. one for the instrument panel/gauge, the other strictly used by the ECU (Engine Control Unit)... if this sensor goes bad, it sends the wrong data/signal to the ECU and this can affect engine performance.

Audi A3 2002 model auto - temperature gauge not working


The guage and fan speeds work on independant sensors. If you can remove the plastic engine cover and locate the "sending unit" for the gauge disconnect it and restart the engine. The gauge should remain cold and not move. If this is the case replace the sending unit. This should be a single wire sender located in the waterjacket of the intake manifold look in the area where the upper rad hose enters the intake.
