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.

Fan does not work on 2003 hyundai tiburon


Radiator fan or AC fan? If its the radiator fan, you need first to check if its motor us OK. You can do this by hardwiring the electricl plug directly to the battery. Motor should run. If it doesn't, then this motor (fan) needs replacement.

If the motor runs fine when hardwiring, then you should have the car scanned for error codes. It is probably that the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) is bad, thus the ECM never gets the signal "hey, I'm getting hot, turn on the radiator fan!"

Temperture gauge show's hot after a one minutes running


Most likely the heat sensor.
Ensure you replace the gauge sensor with the correct type to suit your gauge.
(dont confused it with the overtemp alarm switch sensor).
Check you've got the right sensor by shorting it out to frame/ground and observing the gauge movement.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a thermostat.it resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.
