1993 explorer temp gauge not working, change coolant temp sensor no luck, does this model have a coolant temp switch?


In fact it does! he coolant sensor is used by the PCM to control the engine fuel ratios at various temperatures. The coolant switch is used only for the gauge, since the explorer has a mechanical rather than an electric fan. Here are pictures, first is the Coolant Sensor (which you claimed to have replaced), then the switch, which is probably what you need. If the switch doesn't fix the problem, the gauge itself is probably faulty.

Temperature gauge not working


If you know that the radiator is full of coolant, and the temp gauge is not accurate, the sending unit for the gauge may be faulty.

Tempeture guage not working and heater is blowing out very little hot air on my ford galaxy


you need to get the thermostat changed. The thermostat controls how much coolant runs around the engine and sends signals to your temp gauge to indicate how hot the engine is.
if the thermostat is faulty it wont sent signals to the temp gauge and wont open up to allow coolant to run around the system. Your heating is run by coolant, behind the dash there is the heater matrix hot coolant runs into the matrix which gets blown inside the cab.
Fitting a new thermostat will fix all the heating and gauge problems. if your technical minded you can buy a thermostat from an autofactor (or ford, but they are expensive from ford). a garage will charge about £30-£100 ish for a new one.

hope this helps :-)

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

Gauge temperature


Your description of the problem is not very clear. It seems as if your temp gauge does not work, or does not indicate the correct temperature.
If you disconnect the wire from the sensor unit and put it to battery negative (ground), the gauge should move to the full hot position. If this does not happen the best chance is that the gauge does not work. If it does work, the sensor is faulty. In a very unlikely situation, the wire could be faulty..

Car starts to overheat


Hi

It certainly sounds like a faulty thermostat, and I have to say, I'm shocked that the dealer just cleaned and reinstalled the old one, he should have fitted a new one.

My first port of call with this one would be to fit a new thermostat.

Very best regards
