Engine temp guage shows cold


Let the truck run for about 15 minutes. If the engine temperature does not come up turn the heater on and check to see if the air coming out is hot or cool. If it is hot the engine's thermostat is operating fine and most likely the problem is with the temperature sending unit for the gauge. If the air is cool the thermostat is stuck open. Try replacing the thermostat if the air is cool.

1994 Chevy Silverado temperature guage shows hot


Flushing the radiator, replacing the radiator cap, adding new coolant, replacing the sensors and a new thermostat solved the problem. Probably didn't need to do all of these things - but since we just purchased the truck, and given the fact that is probably hadn't been done in a while, we chose to do all of these things (which really didn't cost a whole lot), it's running like a charm now.

Temperature guage shows hot


you need to make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator and oil in the car its better to take it in before you do some damage even that the engine is not hot its heating up inside very fast

The gauge can very well be "lying" to you.

As a precaution, I would do a routine cooling system service on it. This includes completely flushing the coolant, replacing the thermostat and radiator cap (believe it or not, a bad cap can cause issues too).

On the few Fords I have owned, mine were always in the middle, or to the left of the middle.

Motor homes should run cooler actually, beings as they tend to have heavy duty large capacity cooling systems.
