Hi. the vdc at the sensor seems to be fine. if the ground is sufficient, i would replace the gauge. its malfunctioning. Check for loose connection at gauge before replacing the gauge.

SOURCE: my temperature gauge does not move

it's possible that the guage is broken... more likely is that the sensor has failed. Somewhere in the block is a temperature sending unit. It should have a single wire attatched to it. This is sometimes kind of hard to find and I'm not sure where it is on your engine. But this is what I would check for first.

SOURCE: My engine temperature gauge reads hot but heating

It is possible that somehow your heater core is either blocked or airlocked. Best thing to do is to feel the two hoses that go to and from the heater core when the engine is up to normal operating temperature. If one hose is hot and the other is barely warm than you have a blocked up heater core. If you feel both hoses and they are barely warm than it is possible that you have an airlock in the system. The airlock is mostly likely to occur if you have recently had your heating system worked on such as a new radiator, thermastat, etc. If both hoses are hot then it could possibly be the heater blend doors inside the heater box could be stuck in the cold position. They are controlled from the switches on the dash. When you adjust the heat setting on the dial from hot to cold or cold to hot it moves the blend doors to either let more cold air in or more heat in. Hope this was helpful. Happy motoring.

What is the running temperature for a kia sportage 2 litre deisil automatic


In the most general of terms a diesel engine would operate at 86-92 C.

However, much depends on the distance you are driving. On a very short trip(s) your needle is unlikely to get much above cold on the gauge. That's because an engine needs a minimum of 5 miles before the thermostat begins to open to allow coolant to circulate, and 10 miles before your engine is getting to 'normal operating temperature'.

The ideal position of the needle is N - normal ... midway between cold and hot.

If, on a long run, the needle doesn't get much past the cold mark it's probably due to either a faulty coolant sensor temperature sending a wrong reading to the gauge, or a thermostat which is stuck in the open position.

If the needle is indicating too hot - again it could be a faulty temperature sensor, a faulty thermostat - or other problems.

With a fully warmed engine and sitting in traffic/idling your needle would creep from Normal to Hot .. and then the electric fan would kick in.

2000 dodge stratus. Heater only works at idle, when driving at high speeds, heater blows cold and thermostat gauge goes to cold. Back flushed heater core, new thermostat any ideas?


I'd say you have a faulty thermostat, be it new or not. If your temperature gauge goes to cold as your engine is taking you down the highway, the thermostat is not doing its job. The temperature should never come down to below normal until engine is shut off...

In cold weather my heating doesn't blow hot air


When your engine thermostat has failed or is sticking open, the engine fluid isn't able to reach a temperature that lets your heater core get hot enough to produce worthwhile heat to blow into the passenger's compartment. It is also not good for your engine to run below design temperature.
If you have a dashboard temp gauge, if your thermostat is stuck open, that gauge will probably stay in the cold area.
I would think that that is the problem, and I would have the thermostat changed (not a very difficult or expensive job).
Hope this helps you.

Nissan terrano 1996 td27 charging issue. Not chargeing.. warning light fuctioning on start up yet not when batt runs down.alternator seems ok.Battery is fine.How to check ic regulator? maybe


Did you hear the one about the Terrano with a charging problem?
Just fix it by replacing the thermostat!
Seriously - check your temperature gauge does it take ages for the needle to barely get off cold? (and is the heater useless?)
The needle should get to just below half way in 2 or 3 minutes.
If the thermostat is stuck open, then the engine does not get up to temperature.
The glow plug control senses the engine temperature is cold, so the glow plugs stay on for an extended period of time (sometimes 10 to 15 minutes) - short trips particularly in winter, with more headlight driving - the alternator can't keep up with the current being drawn off and from time to time you will end up with a flat battery!
A thermostat is cheap, and easy to replace (three bolts and about a half litre of coolant - I pumped the coolant from the top of the radiator, and didn't spill a drop when the thermostat housing was removed).
Sure enough, as the engine temperature reached about 50C, the glow plugs turned off.
