Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer

Temperature gauge goes to 3/4,but when i turn the engine off and then back on again it stays 1/2 of the way . That's after they installed a new thermostat, fan clutch,radiator flush and heater cord. Could the gauge or the coolant sensor be faulty.

The thermostat housing body needs to be replaced which regulates water coolant through engine to radiator.

I have a 1992 toyota paseo and the temperature gauge doesnt give me the correct temperature


there could be a faulty temperature sender or the connections can be dirty in the plug that goes on it clean it first and see what happens if this doesn't work buy a new one if that doesn't work you might not have a thermostat installed and the gauge stays down and only sometimes raises a little then drops down again

2000 bmw 540 dashboard temperature gauge goes to


When a gauge goes bad, you have to decide if it is the sending unit or the gauge itself. If you unplug and short the wire to the sending unit, the gauge should go to max (one way or the other), and the opposite when the wire is not connected to anything. If that works, then it is probably the sending unit. If that does not work, it is probably the gauge itself.

My temp gauge is flucuating when it reaches temperature and then goes back down a few notches and also when i turn off the engine the temp gauge stays at 1/4.


Check coolant level to make sure it is full. Also may want to check your thermostat as it could either be clogged or stuck open. Cheap enough to just replace. Always a good idea to flush the coolant system before a new thermostat is installed.

Coolant leaks


That's probably coming out of your coolant return bottle. With rad cap off & engine cool, look at your level in the rad, if necessary top it up to an inch or so from top. Start engine, turn heater(not defrost) on and let it run until up to normal operating temperature. Keep an eye on temperature gauge & rad level. When it's at normal, watch for good flow going through rad when thermostat opens. after flow slows down,(thermostat closes) top it up if needed. If you watch 2 or 3 times for flow, and gauge doesn't go over normal, then put cap back on, then fill bottle only to mark for warm or hot engine, with coolant. If gauge goes up over normal from there, replace thermostat, and I'd get a new rad cap too. If that has electric cooling fan, make sure it comes on shortly after you see thermostat open & coolant flowing through rad.

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.
