Yes, a bad sensor like Carl said.

Check to make sure how many coolant temperature sensors there are in your engine. With a 2001 car there will be one for the engine management computer and one for the dash gauge. I have a '98 GMC and have the same issue with the dash gauge showing a low coolant temp. I replaced both sensors just on the notion that if one is bad the other might be also. The computer temp sensor on my truck (5.0L V-8) is located in the thermostat housing. The dash gauge sensor is located on the side of the engine down near number one spark plug. You may have to to some online sluething to find you sensors.

... A faulty coolant sensor that always reads cold may cause the fuel control system to run rich, it may be sending the wrong info to the computer and the guage. make sure there is no air in the coolant system, and it is full. see if coolant resorvoir is full when hot. if all is ok, change coolant sensor. good-day!

Runs hot no heat inside top hose hot lower hose cold

Radiator is either clogged,or it's bad. You could also check the heater core.

No heat, new water pump, new heater core, therastat opens, heat just gets warm

make sure the system has been bled properly , i have seen it many times where shops just do a quick fill when parts are replaced(which can cause more problems later on) , first make sure the engine is cold , open the radiator cap , start the engine , when it starts to warm up and the thermostat opens if there is air in the system still you should notice bubbles coming out
let it run for 15 min's or so adding coolant when necessary to keep the lvl up , dont add to much at once as it will over flowalso make sure that the over flow container is filled to the proper lvl

Engine help light, read code, said coolant or therastat trouble,but car runs fine,has heat must be sensor, but which one?

Most likely it will be your coolant temp sensor not the switch. Also check the level of your coolant. If its even a little low it can trigger the light.

Having heater problems with my 1992 acura vigor gs. I checked the therastat in boiling water and it opened . I checked the coolent fliud and it is full. need next trouble shooting step to fix heater...

You need to check the heater hoses in and out of the heater core to see if they are both hot,if not get the heater core flushed.Also check the valve in the heater that changes from hot to cold and make sure it moves.

You probably just need to "burp" your cooling system. Run the car (from cold) with the radiator cap open and the heater on full blast. As the engine heats up and the water level goes down, fill it up until it stays full and starts to overflow.

1998 jeep grand cherokee cooling problem

Your thermostat is stuck closed. It needs to be changed right away. By the way the operating temp on that motor is 160 degrees so you are running hot you have just been lucky so far. Good Luck
