you could have an air lock in the system. Run with rad cap off and cycle the thermostat, adding coolant as required. Or a possible heater core.

SOURCE: 2002 GMC won't start

I have the same model and went through the same trouble. Last summer I put a reman'd starter on it and had no problems again until about 4 months ago, it started all over again. I was sure then that it wasn't the starter. I talked to the mechanic at work and we walked over to the parts locker and all the GM starters on the shelf (remans) had the solenoids replaced, we said in unison, Must be a common problem.
I figured the original starter lasted 130,000 miles so I went to Napa and bought a brand new one. Working like a champ ever since.

SOURCE: 1990 gmc K1500 5.7L, temp. gauge not working:

To review, you have two temp sensors, one for the gauge on the dash and one for the computer. If you unplug the sensor for the computer the reading will be minus 30 degrees or over 300 which will make it very hard to start. Unplugging the sensor for the gauge would have no effect on the computer.
According to the wiring diagram, the wire for the temp gauge is green, and the wires for the temp sensor for the computer are yellow and black.

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.

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

My gauges just stop working,and they are frozen in one spot,the temp gauge still moves a little but not like its supposed to.and the dummy lights wont work but the turn signal lights work,also the light...


The gauges have a memory. They will stay where the last read was when you turn the key off and don't move until you turn the key back on. If something happened between the time you turned the key off and back on then they could be stuck in that last position.
Sounds like you may have a ground issue. The cluster uses a common ground. Maybe start by checking the ground wire under the dash that uses one of its mounting bolts in the corner.

Have a 2001 gmc jimmy...drove home gas gauge read 1/4 tank..next day cranked over but wont start..gas gauge reads empty...put $10.00 from spare gas can..cranked over but no start ..gas gauge still reads...


chevy and gmc trucks have an on going problem with this,turn the key on,and get a rubber mallot or a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank a couple of times,this will unstick something in the fuel pump/sending unit.

Is there are light or gauge for temp. in a 1988 Cadillac Brougham


If you do not have a guage in the instrument cluster then it is going to be a light. The light will be red or orange and shaped like a little thermostat. When you turn the key to the on position it should iluminate briefly before starting the car. If it does not then you may have bulb out in the cluster.

Temp gauge stay on cold.


Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.
