Could be a number of things could be a plugged heater core or a faulty thermostat. If there is heat coming out then it is probably not the thermostat unless it is stuck open. If the heater core is plugged you may smell antifreeze inside the car and have no heat then the heater core could be the issue.

Will a bad temp sensor make a car run hot


a temp sensor only monitors what the engine temp is it will not cause the engine to overheat or run hot. check to make sure the rad cooling fan is working if not it could be a bad fan motor, temp sensor for the computer to turn on the fan or a fan relay. there are 2 temp sensors on motors. one is for the gage or light the other is to tell the computer to turn on the cooling fan.

Temperature gage goes up and down


The breather hose should run to the air cleaner housing or intake tube.
Check your radiator cooling fan. If it isn't working the car will run hot at slow speeds or idle then cool down after you get going faster. A quick check would be to turn the AC on and see if the fan comes on. If not try lightly tapping on the cooling fan motor with a wooden broom handle. If it comes on then you have a bad motor.
If the fan comes on with the AC then check to see if the fan comes on after the engine gets hot. If the engine temp doesn't kick it on then the temperature sensor might be bad.
If the fan is ok please post more info on your problem

Heater dont get hot its not heater core what els can i check


If you have a coolant temperature gage in the instrument cluster and it is running cool replace the thermostat. If you have an "idiot light" for temperature make sure the engine is hot and check the top radiator hose to be sure its hot.

Replaced thermostat and sending unit .check engine light went out .on incline have 3/4 gage warm, when level goes 1/4 on gage cold air,temp wont get hot.or 1/4 gage.could this be computer if so how to...


Not computer. You have air in the cooling system. Bubble is moving around. Park on an upward incline, take the radiator cap off, run the engine and keep the radiator full. Let it warm up and let the thermostat open (until you see flow in the radiator). Then fill to the brim and keep full until it stops going down. Also open any bleed ports you can find in the cooling system (there may not be any) and let any air out of them. Let the engine run and check for any bubbles that continue to come out. If bubbles continue to come up, you have a blown head gasket that is forming the bubble and causing the heater and temp gage issues. If bubbles do not come out, maybe you have fixed the problem by getting all the air out. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Pull a tail light assembly out and you will find the printed circuit that runs the lights.Locate the back-up light and with a meter or a test light,put the truck in reverse with the engine off and the wire to that bulb that comes live is the one you are looking for.
