The thermostat has a weak spring. You need to replace the thermostat with a new one.

Some cars have a second fuse box under the hood near the battery. See if your car doesn't have one of those.

SOURCE: fuel gauge doesnt work

The fuel gauge in the fuel tank is simply a float connected to a bar connected to the sensor. Take a look at that and see if that float is stuck in one place causing a false reading.

Sounds as though the tank sensor is faulty. Access through top of petrol tank, note the wiring colours and position. Lift out and check condition of float and the rheostat wiring and slider. Get a replacement from EB spares

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.

Cold weather temp gauge stays around 1 quarter towards middle


Given the outside temperature, that is what I would expect to see. The coolant temp is only increasing in fast freeway driving because the engine RPM is constantly faster than around town operations.

Not sure why you would be worried.

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.

That is a good temperature reading. If it ever gets up pas the three quarter mark, then you have a problem. Although most vehicles read at the half-way point on the temp. gauge. Hope this helps, James Booth PLEASE RATE THIS!!! :)

It stays on quarter of a tank i replaced the sending unit and the gauge and if i unplug the wire from the fuse block it goes to half a tank and when i plug it back in it goes to a quarter


I would assume that this occurs whatever level the fuel is on, may it be full. Looks like it is a wiring issue. This may be tedious but try to trace the wiring. Look for loose connections or bad wiring. Wiring insulation may have gone bad. To test this further you may want to consider directly connecting the gauge to the wiring of the tank for the sending unit and the fuel gauge. If the problem persist when you directly connected it it could be an issue with the gauge or the part inside the tank. If no issues are present it may be the wiring.

No, none of this is normal. The load vacuum noise may be a busted diaphragm in the brake booster. The fluctuating fuel gauge is either a bad sending unit in the fuel tank or a bad fuel gauge.

Fuel& Temperature Gauges are sticking Example gas tank full of fuel but only reads half full, temperature reads hot but engine is running at normal temperature What is wrong and how can we fix it


they could be seperate problems. the fuel level sender in the tank may be bad. the 2 wire coolant temp sensor may be faulty. there may be a bad ground some where or a bad connection in the harness. although it is common for the circuit boards in the cluster to go bad and you get funny readings on one half or the other. i would start diagnosing the cooling problem first. those engines have an air bleed valve above the t-stat. make sure there isnt a pocket of super heatad steam in the system (first indication of a small leak). the cts also controls the fan relays through the pcm. are the fans comming on as the temp guage passes half way? what does the guage do when the key is on, engine off, cts unpluged, and the connector jumpered or grounded? the guage should have a full sweep if it doesnt sweep the cluster or harness are suspect
