Question about 2003 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

Temp gauge doesn't work

Temp gauge doesn't move. I had them change the thermostat and it worked for a while but doesn't work at all now. Truck runs fine so does it matter if it doesn't work so long as it doesn't over heat. It will probably work again when the weather gets colder. It's a 2003 Tundra. Thanks for your help.

Replace your temperature sending unit. Actually it does matter if it doesnt work. You wont know if it has overheated until it is too late and you have blown a head gasket.

good luck.

Where is the thermostat fuse at


There is a fuse for the gauges, If no other gauges work then I'd suspect the fuse. If only the temp gauge is acting up, look at the temp sensor wiring or the sensor itself.

Running cooler than normal (indicated by temp gauge), hot air not hot, thermostat not the problem (recently replaced), check engine light NOT on.


as far as the temp of the air blowing...it in direct proportion to engine coolant temp...try a hotter thermostat....as for the faan running continuously that is a seperate problem and sounds like a faulty rheostat or fan switch...rheostat is elect, switch on the fan motor that enables different speeds and may beinternal on your truck. only parts store will know . if it is replace fan motor. if not , test switch and then test rheostat

Hi have a 2004 freestar I changed radiator-, water pump , thermostat, engine coolant if I drive on flat street my van runs good temp is normal but if I go uphill the gauge goes up to almost red once I...


Sounds like a faulty temp guage/r a strange malfuntion in a sensor to me as well, only doing it when it going up hill really makes no sense for the way the cooling system works so I doubt that its actually running hot, which is likely why he asked about the gurgling noise, it would force water back into the resivoir if it was running hot assuming that the thermostatic radiator cap is working properly.

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.
