SOURCE: Temp Gauge went to high

It could be 3 things: Temp sensor, thermostat, or fan relay. Fans don't usually turn on until car has been idleing for a while. I first would change thermostat, then relay, then temp sensor. Coolant must be 50/50 mixture for water pump to have proper lubricant from antifreezer. Do not go any further than a 60water/40antifreeze mix

SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally

Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.

SOURCE: temperature gauge is fluctuating while driving.

I'm thinking the coolnat level is low, and this might be caused by a bad head gasket - At least $800 to fix - sorry.

Is it normal for the temperature gauge to be at the M in normal on the dash for a 92 ford explorer sport?


Runing at the middle of the temp gauge is normal, If a vehicles temp gauge needle goes into the red zone on the gauge or into the hot zone as far as the needle will go .then you start worrying. Middle position is (NormaL for most (Vehicles) You have nothing to worry about.

I just change new radiator and radiator cap on 2000 nissan quest .go on freeway .and know temp gauge very high i stop the car wait and run again ,now see a gauge go high and drop down to normal ,what is...


Make sure that the cooling system has the proper amount of antifreeze and that the fluid is full by checking and filling, if needed, by filling the reserve to the proper level. Then make sure that the cooling fans are coming on. Best test is to allow the engine to come up to operating temp while you observe the cooling fans. If they don't come on by the time the temp gauge is half way, try turning on the air conditioning to high. That should turn the fans on. If not check the cooling fan relay or module. Dan

if the gauge goes straight to half, even when the engine is stone cold, i would suspect a bad temperature gauge sending unit. you will find it near the thermostat housing. good luck!

Where's the heat sensor on the engine located. Couldn't locate it


Hey debo9593, does your Nissan have a temp gauge on the dash(some vehicles just have a light that goes on when the engine overheats). If u do have a gauge, what is it reading (normal range, or an actual temperature). I'm asking all this because it sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open, which would not allow the truck to reach normal operating temperature, and also result in poor heat in the cab. It could be other things if the thermostat is ok, such as a heater core plugged up w/ rust and corrosion. so, let me know about engine temp, and we can follow up from there.I

96 honda civic lxi overheating.


The car is not overheating if the temp gauge goes up and down by turning the lights on and off.  The gauge is giving you bad information.   You can confirm this by starting the car from cold, sitting in the driveway, let the temp go to somewhere BEFORE normal operating temp, then turn on headlights and fan blower on high, watch the gauge, then turn them off.   If the gauge moves significantly from the electrical load, you probably have a short or a bad ground connection.  

You have a short circuit or bad wiring somewhere in the front half of the car.  I don't know what thermostat switch you have replaced ... but it's not the problem .. stop buying them.  
If you are the original owner, was there an accident that may have damaged some wiring?  If you bought the car second hand,  get a carfax and find out where the thing was hit ... concentrate your wiring trouble shooting in that area.

I think it is something OTHER than the temperature sending unit or the gauge
