When you say that it's full, are you referring to the coolant recovery tank? Have you checked the level in the radiator? If it's low, add coolant until the radiator is full, then replace your radiator cap.

Check that the wiring and terminals to the sender unit are not broken or dirty. If they are good maybe the sender unit it self is not working.

I have a 1997 dodge pick up v6 wont heat up past 150 no heat n bottom hose is cold any help would be nice thanks moe

Interesting. My first guess is the thermostat is not completely closed.
The bottom hose being cold tells me the thermostat is closed as it should be, but maybe not completely closed.
If the cooling system is full of coolant and has no air pockets, both heater hoses should get hot after 10 min of run time.

Why does the dashboard reads high engine temperature, and the engine revs. high, and the antifreeze level is down a bit ?

If the coolant level isn't full and you get air in the system, all the sensors will read incorrectly since those sensors depend on being completely immersed in liquid at all times.

High temperatures with proper coolant levels can come from a stuck thermostat that isn't allowing water to circulate thru the radiator. Even in cold weather, with a stuck thermostat, the engine can overheat if the coolant doesn't circulate and the coolant will overflow into the overflow container and maybe all the way out if the engine gets too hot from non-circulation

The coolant light active on the dashboard, even after changing tha coolant and flushing the radiati

ensure that the radiator is full to that radiator cap. Check that the wiring to the coolant level sensor is intact as it needs a complete circuit through the unit and coolant to operate correctly.

Ac coolant capacity

If it is completely empty and you have pulled a vac, it holds around 2.5 lbs which is about 3 cans. The gauge readings tell you when the system is full.

I have a 2001 Hyundai elantra, and the engine temp sensor gets to the middle line, but no hot air blows. the fan blows cool air unless im at a higher speed around 70 mph, and even then there air is only...

2 things it maybe. Your blend door may be stuck open. 2nd Your heater core may need replacing. Check to see if both heater hoses are hot. 3rd heater control valve maybe bad. Good Luck!!!

Low coolant light goes on even when collant is at full capacity

You need to clean or replace the coolant level sensor.It is on the passengers side tank of the radiator.What happens is that it gets dirty and will not read the coolant and this makes the light go on.You can try cleaning it and if that does not work then you will have to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Coolant Sensor

OMG!!! I know that sound all to well I hear it in my nightmares sometimes. You can just short it to ground by clipping the end off, crimping a "O" terminal on the wire and screwing a self tapping screw any where out of sight (as long as it's screwing into sheet metal). Usually it's an air pocket in the top of the radiator that causes it to go off, but due to the laid back angle of the radiator you need a pressurized filler to get it completely out. If you wanted you could take the gauge cluster out and remove the siren also. You can still monitor the coolant via the temp gauge so theres really no reason for the **** air raid siren of doom any longer.
