Change your thermostat and see if that works.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestion. My heater still produces heat. This is why I didn't think it would be my thermostat. Is there such a thing as a single wire temp sensor, or is there only the one two wire sensor?"

SOURCE: My temperature gage is going over in the red and my heat is not

Check the sensor which controls the cooling fans that cools the radiator it prevents the engine from over heating and allows the temp gauge to stay at normal range.recently had problems with my 2003 impala overheating it was the sensor had the thermostat replace as well.

SOURCE: temp gage on 94 bounder motorhome does not work

cant tell where sensor is, but when you find it if you connect the sender unit wire to ground the gauge should read hot with ignition turned on (with engine not running) this will tell you sender unit is at fault not gauge

What is the small electric censer in the bottom of the valley on a 3.2L V6 in a 99 rodeo? I had to change the thermostat and broke the little censer while i was at it.

Hi,im not shore,I think it might be temp-gage,
if you warm car up a bit, then take wire off broken switch,
get some one to hold the wire on switch you have a look at temp-gage then when car is warm get the person who is holding the wire to remove it from the switch,if the temp-switch gose down then replace the switch as it is the temp-switch.
good luck.

unscrew the cap from your overflow and leave it off over night. the air in the system will naturally want to rise. the air pocket will be out by morning. make sure to fill you coolant back up then!

I have a P1028 error code on my 2003 Camry, what does this mean?

Hello good fixya answer seeker

That code basically means the cars coolant temp is under what the thermostat is supposed to keep it at. There are a few things that can cause this issue i shall list them below for you.

1. low coolant level
2. bad thermostat
3. bad coolant temp sensor (sits in the side of the block most of the time)

All of the above are easy to change and cheap first off check the coolant level when car is cold only if that's good change thermostat and gasket cheap and easy if that don't correct the issue change the coolant temp sensor this tells fan when to run and reports temps to Gage.

Please leave 4 thumbs helps me help all of you thanks

Temperature gage not working,gas,gears gage are ok.

located the temp sending unit check that its pluged in, if it is unplug it and ground the wire to something metal (with the switch on) and see if the gauge moves if it does then your temp sending unit is bad and needs replaced

The fuel and temperature gauges are pegged out on my Suzuki samurai. The fuel gauge is always pegged out and the temperature gauge is low when first started then goes to max temperature in about a minute....

I just had a similar issue with my 1995 Buick century. My issue started out with the gage being almost pegged with the car off. When I turned the key to run it pegged the gage completely. I first called AutoZone and they told me it was either the temperature sensor, thermostat, or gage.
I knew that my thermostat wasn’t bad because I replaced it a while back. I then checked my sensor; I unhooked the two pin connector of this sensor at the block and suspected the needle to drop to zero. This was not the case.
I then checked my wires using a multimeter to verify that there was no short at my firewall. My wiring was fine.
I then called a family mechanic and he instructed me that there is also a "temperature switch" that also is interconnected to the coolant temperature gage. I then found this switch which was threaded into the block near the firewall of my car. I unhooked the 2 pin connector and suspected that the gage would return to the neutral position. And sure enough it did!!
This could have been a heck of a lot easier if AutoZone could have told me that my car has a "temperature switch". But non the less it was only a $15 fix!

First try unhooking your sensors and switch to see if this is the problem, I would lastly suspect your gage to fail!

Good Luck

My car has overheating out of ordinary found that water pump was leaking replaced it, drove 2 blocks car said overheated again. Replaced thermostat and it still said was overheating. Even after I let car...

Sounds like you need a temp sensor for the gage. There's 2 under the hood one is a 2 wire in the intake manifold driver's side & a single wire one under the exhaust crossover pipe,also driver's side. You want to change the single wire one. Yes,it's tough. If it's still overheating quick, then it's a head gasket.
