1987 jeep Cherokee temp gauge moves when car starts then goes. Back to 0. I replaced temp sending unit what now


ever consider it's telling the truth, (an IR pyro gun (tool) answers that in 1sec flat.
if it is truthing ,then that means the thermostat is missing,
or stuck open or it has one of those abominations, a failsafe Stat.
or air pockets below the stat causing it to go nuts, and the coolant sender too, goes double nuts, because of stat and because the coolant sender don't work in AIR. see? FULL IS KING> is it.

of when dead cold is the Rad FULL>????? cap off?
if not, BINGO>?
then does the rad hose get fully hot with a hot engine.
hand touches top rad tube and hand flies off, bam, 180F+
that be hot. is it?
(look ma, no tools?)

if the coolant is at 180f , rad full
and the gauge reads wrong, it might be a bad gauge or wires to it.
but that 180f thing is #1 , is it?

Car overheats. didn'T THINK FAN WAS WORKING BUT WHEN YOU TURN ON THE AIR CONDITIONING THE FAN WORKS.


You will need to see if the fan operates when overheating, there are diffrent sensors for the cooling and ac cooling, the good thing is that the fan works, this would tell me it may be a bad coolant temp sensor or thermostat, you will need to let it run and as the gauge passes the middle point feel to see if both upper and lower rad hoses are hot, if only one is hot then you may have a bad thermostat, is they are both hot and fan doesnt turn on and car overheats then you should replace the coolant temp sensor, stat with these tests and see the result, hope this helps.

How to get air out of a 2001 ford taurus after changing thermostat


run engine with the rad cap off. turn the heater on, set to panel, with the fan turned off. once there is heat in the car and the temp gauge is stabilized, you should be good to go. top up the coolant, put the rad cap back on, top up the over flow tank, go for a test drive and make sure everything works well.

My 2001 ford Taurus heating temp gauge is not constant on dashboard. It goes up and down. I don?t have heat. Water pump, thermostat, in and out pipe and coolant are changed. Still no heat.


Start the engine when cool, remove rad cap and start engine and let it run with the heater on. (not defrost) Top up coolant as needed in rad, and let it run until either the rad fan comes on and off 2 or 3 times, or you can see increased flow in rad from thermostat opening. It will obviously happen after it reaches operating temperature, so watch after gauge gets close to there. Wait until you see that flow 2 or 3 times or fan comes on and off before you put cap on, and fill return bottle to proper level as well. That should cure it, by getting air out of system, and coolant flowing through heater core.

Temp gauge does not register when hot


To find out about the CTS (the sensor the above clarification request is referring to), try disconnecting the wiring harness. It's right behind the thermostat housing and upper radiator hose. If your fans kick on while the engine is running, it's probably an issue with your PCM (computer).

Temp gauge goes from cold to hot.


You can remove the rad cap and run the engine ( do not remove cap when hot!! ) You should be able to see the coolant circulating in the rad. You can also remove a heater hose and hold upwards and start engine, if coolant flows out the pump is circulating. If all looks good at that point I would start to suspect a cylinder head gasket leak and / or cracked cylinder head. Hope this helps .. Good Luck

No heat. Temp gauge barely moves, but hoses to/from core are hot


If the temp. gauge on the instrument panel is OK, test and eventually replace the temperature sender, and check the wiring to temperature sender.

Replacing the whole heater core is not a simple operation, test sender and wiring first.

Dash Temp Gauge reading extremely hot


You need to pressure test the cooling system. If it holds pressure, I would look at replacing the water temp. sensor. If it doesn't hold pressure, you have a coolant leak going on. If you don't see it dripping on the ground or inside the car, I would be suspecting head gasket problem.
