Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

The temp gauge on my rs 125 is reading cold as soon as I start to move after long spin. When stopped it is moving up and down randomly and as soon as I drive off it reads cold.. also when the bike is stopped and turned offiI notice a lot of steam coming from the rad I think. The temp stat never goes above 80 so bike is not overheating at any point and I'm using violent mixed with water and its full. Any have an idea wat this cud be.. can'tafford to ttake it to mechanic.. so any ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Hi! May I asked when did you purchase the PCM? Eventhough the PCM is new it is not free from failures. That's the downside on buying new PCM, sometimes it doesn't work right. I suggest that you have it replaced or resetted.

SOURCE: My Gauge cluster went koo-koo...

Hi...electrical problems could be a nightmare and I am not an expert in that side of the field but when things go "koo koo" like that it usually turns out to be one of two things in my experience. (1) Bad Ground...maybe ground terminal is loose on battery, or bad ground wire from engine to chassis. (2) Your computer has lost it's marbles and needs to be reset or replaced. You can try to reset it by disconnecting the ground cable from the battery for at least 15 minutes. You also might want to take it to your local AutoZone store and ask them to check your computer codes...they do not charge a fee for it.
Hope it helps and wish you the best,

SOURCE: Overheating problem

i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

The temperature gauge on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee started running hot (about 3/4 up), as soon as I start moving (even when the car is cold). It comes down to normal (about 50% on the gauge) when I stop...


Change the sensor, but it will run hot like that if you are not moving fluids across it. It is basically measuring air temp for a minute. Could be a totally stuck thermostat. Change both. That cooling system is critical on a cherokee.

Temperature Gauge read HOT instantly


If the gauge does not go back to cold when the engine is cold, it could be the gauge on the dash. I am assuming the gas gauge drops with the key off.
You could unplug the temp sensor on the engine to see if it makes any difference.

Ive been having issues with my temp gauge sometimes it will move but it will just drop back down randomly and go back up again and sometimes it wont do anything but its never just worked properly sitting...


Its fine, temp needle going up shows that engine is warming up and as soon as the radiator fan starts, temp of coolant drop and this is shown by the temp gauge needle. In most cars (even mine) it stays in middle most of the time unless you are in a traffic with AC on, it will show up more temp. What you can do is get the radiator flushed and coolant changed. Also check the water pump. To do so when engine is cold (in first start in morning), open the radiator cap and ask someone to rev the engine. If the coolant level moves up and down then water pump is also fine.
