It can be the Electric cooling fan relay or a second temperature sensor on the engine is not triggering the cooling fan.

SOURCE: Engine temp gauge rises to above normal within 10

That's a slow opening thermostat, nothing to be really concerned about unless it gets really hot. You might want to replace thermostat for peace of mind.

08 Ford Explorer 4.0L - At times the coolant goes through the radiator cap into the recovery tank, filling it, same time temp gauge rises Changed tstat and cap. I think it is a clogged radiator


possible and an accredited radiator shop will be able to do a flow test to check that
unfortunately , it indicates a gasket or cracked problem so have a compression test done to eliminate that
if that test proves good then have the thermostat removed and checked/replaced if the engine runs a viscous fan hub then check that as well
viscous fan hub failure is most noticeable when stopped at lights ( temp gauge goes up but comes back down when moving along the road) temp rises in slow moving traffic , using high engine rpm as in up hill or any condition where the air is not moving through the radiator unless the vehicle has speed
if you have electric fans then the problem may be in the coolant SENSOR unit that sends the temp to the ECM to switch on the fans

Heat goes in and out and the temp gauge goes up and down


Your temp sensor has nothing to do with your heater. The temp sensor needs coolant in order to work properly. So first check the coolant level because if it is low your heater will act the way you describe. Once the coolant gets low enough the heater will blow cold. Another possibility is the radiator cap. After the engine has warmed up it expands when it cools down it contracts. As it is contracting if the cap is weak air can be drawn into the system and cause air pockets to form and will cause the same problem

Engine overheats according to dashboard warning but after stopping for 10 mins goes back to normal and no problems this has been happening for some time is it technical


This depends on a few things. Is the car actually hot or is it just reading hot. If it is just reading hot then a temp sensor that feeds the gauge may be shot, or the gauge, or the connection wires may have issue. If the engine is actually hot, you may have a sticking thermostat or bad temp sensor that regulates the coolant flow. Also, does this continueally happen or just the first time when you start ait and take off. If it is only the first time than things like faulty sensors or thermostat is a good possiblitly, if it keeps happeneing, you are probably looking at some sort of electrical issue.

Temp gauge goes up to hot then back down only a few times


This is a sign that the thermostat is sticking shut and then opening after the temp gets past a certain point. If the heat gauge goes to high and then drops down suddenly, this is the likely culprit and you need to replace the thermostat - again.

I have had them arrive from the parts store and be defective.

Temp guage in red' dummie light on engine not hot


Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Temp increases on idle and aircon fails


Does the electric fan come on and stay on when it's hot? Find what's clicking it could be the relay for either a/c or fan. (though they usually are on the passenger side in the power distribution center near the battery. Your system works pretty much like this: the temperature sender on the engine sends info to the computer which sends a message to the relay to turn the fan on. The a/c bypasses this to some extent and turns the fan on every time the compressor is running.
Your radiator must be really clean or it would be blowing coolant all over the place a bit over 210, unless the gauge is reading incorrectly.

Temp gauge goes to full hot while at Idle


Check the auxiliary cooling fan for operation. As the engine temp rises, it should kick on to bring the temp down. U may have a bad motor on the fan, or more likely a bad fan switch.
