your thermostat might be stuck open so while idle it can warm up but as soon as the motor increases speed it cools down quick

SOURCE: Temperature needle stays on the hot and doesnt move even when the car is cold?

YOur guage is faulty. Your will need to replace your guage if it stays in the hot position even when your car is off and your key is out of the ignition. If it only rises to hot when you turn the key to the run position, you have a wire between your guage and your temp sending unit that has been gounded out. Usually this happens when a person opens their hood to add oil or perform some minor maintenance on the engine and inadvertantly bumps the sensor or switch or wiring. This causes about 65% of these minor issues people incur, but if it does stay all the way up with your key out of the ignition switch, then you will need to replace your temp guage.

could be the guage itself in the instrument cluster or could be both the two wires are short to ground or touching together depends on the vehicle some vehicles the signals goes to the ecm or computer and the ecm sends data to the cluster if the sensor is good check the wiring one should be floating or open ,the other should be body ground black or brown danny

Temp gauge not working...is it the gauge or a sensor?


Check if the wire has not come loose from the sensor, if not, remove the wire from the sensor and hold it against any clean spot on the engine block whilst the ignition is on, (you need someone to be inside the car) if the needle travels all the way to the hot position, you will need to replace the sensor

Temp gauge on 1986 s-10 blazer 4x4 2.8 stays pegged on hot. on or off doesn't matter. i have replaced sender and sensor. any ideas?


Could be a short in the cluster, but its probably a faulty gauge. It should move when you cut off power.

Car temp gauge reads hot but it doesn't seem to be running hot. I have changed the thermostat, cooling fan sensor and temp gauge sensor, still reading almost hot to the red. The water is flowing through...


From your description, it does not sound like it is actually running hot.
Might be a faulty gauge or computer unit.
I hate to say it, but sometimes worth taking to the dealer to check annoying ones like this.

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

Temperature Gauge read HOT instantly


If the gauge does not go back to cold when the engine is cold, it could be the gauge on the dash. I am assuming the gas gauge drops with the key off.
You could unplug the temp sensor on the engine to see if it makes any difference.

My temp gauge stays on hot but not over heating and the heater is blowing cold


you might have a defective sender unit (temperature) or faulty wiring to the same unit.Identify the sender unit and disconnect it whilst your ignition is on. Temp gauge must fall to cold.If it does, sender unit needs replacement and if it stays high your wiring to the sender unit is shorting with ground

Needle on temp gauge stays on hot


if the temperature gauge never moves its probably just the coolant temperature sender. Replace that. but i honestly recommend buying a new temperature gauge with more accurate readings. they arent very pricey and they are easy to install

Cooling temp sensor


Should be located on the lower intake on right or left toward the front. Two wires watch cause there's and air temp that might look the same.

Temp gauge stay on cold.


Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.
