    When the gauge is reading hot are the cooling fans on? If not turn on the a/c and the fans should com on.

If cooling fan works, it maybe a sticking thermostat not opening fully. Check that cooling system is full (check cold) first. Then if that seems ok, i would replace the thermostat.

I have a 2001 dakota that is overheating. put in new thermostat, didnt help. put in new water pump, still overheating. finally replaced the radiator. still is overheating. what else can I do to fix it


Sometimes when you open cooling system, air gets in, it can cause problems with temp gage.
How hot does it get in degrees F? Is the coolant boiling over? Are you losing coolant? Use a non-contact infra red temp gun to take engine temp, At least we will have a degrees F reading. Most temp gages say hi or lo, cold or hot. I don't know about yours?
Can you check for combustion gases in the coolant?

Overheating gage when stop & go -2004 chevy tahoe


natural for engine temp to rise in Traffic - Until Themostat opens ) cooling fan sensor kicks on fan . But Antifreeze is not just a Cold weather item . Coolant is Absolutely Necessary for Hot Days . You must be full to recovery bottle setting of cold when checked prior to start up . Coolant for your make / model is Reddish - Pink colour and should have a reading of -25 thats negative 25 degrees the Lower the Better even - 50 .. Why ?? - 50 is 50 %% antifreeze / Coolant Concentrate MIX Gives Hot weather cooling Ability or very cold weather starting / winter HEAT .

My car shows it running hot and then cold again whats up


the first thing is to check the coolant level, if coolant is full you may have a bad thermostat or a bad coolant temp sensor,when it runs hot, the best way to determine if it is hot is to check the temp at the sensor with temp checking tool.

Temp guage read hot, volt guage reads low, and oil pressure guage tops out. Could this be a bad ground?


Possibly, i would check the sending unit and of course the wires that connect to the temp prob. They often become worn or even short out on other wires. I suspect that the gage is telling the truth and you have a blown head gasket. Check the oil for water. Check the water level and see if you are losing water. good luck

The overhead outdoor temperature Gage reads 25-75 degrees below actual temperature I have tried resting the compass and disconnected the battery for fiver minutes. Where is the outside temperature sensor...


The outdoor temp sensor is just inside the grill when you opent the hood. The part cost around $76 and kind of looks like a electrical plug receptacle. There are little clips holding the old one in that need to be held apart to dislodge it, slip the new one in, and you're done. Took about 5 minutes.

Good luck!

Overheating, but engine is not hot


The coolant temp sensor could possably be bad giving an incorrect reading. This would also cause misfire trying to lean engine out because it was reading hot.
