Check for radiator leaks, hose leaks, try to locate the area were the leak is occuring. You may need a new thermostat. If you can locate were the leak is, chances are you'll find the area in need of repair.If coolant is running from small line " hose from radiator or coolant bottle", could be a faulty thermostat.

Changed out water pump and thermostat and vehicle runs high temperature what could be issue?


Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads High

If the temperature gauge reads high, it could mean your engine is overheating. Another reason your reading might be high is you could be losing coolant. A small leak or evaporation may cause your radiator to slowly lose coolant. A third reason your temperature gauge reads high could be because the thermostat is broken. If this is the case, you may need a coolant temperature switch replacement. The last reason the temperature gauge could read high is because of a water pump, or water pump gasket failure. If the water pump is malfunctioning, it may need to be replaced by a professional.

What to Do If Your Temperature Gauge is High

If your temperature gauge is reading high, it means your car is overheating. This is a very serious matter and you should never drive an overheating car. If your car starts to overheat, shut off the air conditioner and open the windows immediately. If this does not reduce the overheating, turn on the heater as high as it can go. If this still doesn't work, pull over on the side of the road, turn off the engine, open the hood carefully, and wait until the vehicle cools down. Never open the radiator cap while the engine is hot - coolant can spray and burn you. Once the vehicle has cooled, take the car to a mechanic right away so they can diagnose the problem. Cars are especially susceptible to overheating in hot climates, like what's common in cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, or Atlanta.
The temperature gauge is an important tool in your vehicle that shows the temperature of your engine's coolant. Contact YourMechanic and have your car inspected for overheating if it reads too high, as this can cause serious problems...

Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads Cold

On most vehicles, the temperature gauge reads cold until the engine has run for a few minutes. If the temperature gauge still reads cold after the engine has warmed up, the gauge may simply be broken. Another reason the temperature gauge could read cold is if the thermostat in the vehicle stays open. With the thermostat stuck open, the engine can be overcooled, causing a low temperature reading. If this is the case, the thermostat may need to be replaced.

Where is the coolant temperature sensor on a 2014 buick regal 2.0 turbo?


I can't answer your question but it is worth considering the modern trend is to drive the temperature gauge with the engine management computer rather than provide a completely separate circuit.

If that is the case and the engine management sensor is faulty it would be obvious as the engine check light would be on...

No DTC definition code found p1114


Hi there:
DTC P1114 - Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent Low Voltage/IAT - B Circuit Low Input



The engine coolant temperature sensor is a thermistor (a resistor which changes value based on temperature) mounted in the engine coolant passage. Low coolant temperature produces a high resistance 100,000 ohms at -40 oC (-40 oF) while high temperature causes low resistance 70 ohms at 130 oC (266 oF).

OPERATION
The VCM supplies a 5 volt signal to the engine coolant temperature sensor through a resistor in the VCM and measures the voltage. The voltage will be high when the engine is cold. The voltage will be low when the engine is hot. By measuring the voltage, the VCM calculates the engine coolant temperature. Engine coolant temperature affects most systems the VCM controls.

The scan tool displays engine coolant temperature in degrees. After engine start-up, the temperature should rise steadily to about 9O oC (194 oF) then stabilize when thermostat opens. If the engine has not been run for several hours (overnight), the engine coolant temperature and intake air temperature displays should be close to each other. When the VCM detects a malfunction in the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor circuit, the following Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) s will set.



Hope this helps.

No heat, Service Engine Soon light came on, Engine and Colant still hot 3hrs after shutting it off what could be the problem ?


Hello Eric...

As you do not have heat, one or more heater & AC air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may have failed. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) will be stored in the HVAC control module and should be recovered (A code reader is required) to assist with diagnoses.

Bleed colant sys


Raise the front of the car as high as poss with a floor jack and then fill the coolant recovery tank/ bottle to the top, run the engine until it gets hot but do not overheat it, shut it down and let the coolant be pulled into the radiator as it cools, you can also run water over the radiator core to speed up the process. Do not let the recovery tank run dry.

Code 1 senser P0118 on a 2004 V.W beetle dicesel


P0118 for Volkswagen - (ECT) Engine Colant Temperature Circuit High

Symptoms:- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes:
(Inspect the following... Repair/Replace if necessary)
- Low engine coolant level
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
- Faulty engine coolant thermostat

P0118 VOLKSWAGEN Description: The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The modified signal returns to the (ECM) as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.
When is the code detected?:When an excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need further assistance.

The temperature gauge reading of my nissan admax 2001 model is always too high. but im not experiencing overheating. what do i do?


If your temperature gauge is reading too high, it can only be one of two things: The engine is overheating or the gauge is "lying" to you. I would recommend first taking the temperature of the cylinder head with an infrared thermometer to determine which one it is. If the engine is actually as hot as the guge says it is, then you need to check your cooling system. If the engine is not as hot as the gauge says it is then you need to diagnose and repair your gauge circuit. (most likely an inaccurate temperature sensor)

I have cool air not heat until i rais rpm on my 2002 4.7


posable problems are bad thermostat if engine is warming the coolant it could also be the heater core pluging up , low colant level , colant flow control valve ,loose belt or a weak water pump
