Find the temp sender, probably in the thermostat housing. Pull off the wire, ignition On, ground the wire and see if the gauge maxes. If so its the sender. Crack the rad cap, retighten the rad cap then when you change it little or no fluid will be lost. If you haven't changed the antifreeze in the last 3 years now would be a good time?

SOURCE: The temperature gauge just stopped working. Could

Yes it could. It could also be a loose wire on the sensor, a broken wire or a faulty sensor. Test all one at a time until you find the problem.

Befor you replace the fan you need to check the thurmastat. Turn on heater and see if cools down the motor. Could also be your heater core going out. this supplys the water through your system to cool. as well as heat. good luck

I have a ford 2001 windstar. the other day the temp gauge went close to High. After an hour of sitting while we went shopping. It didn't move from normal on the way home. we added 1-1/2 gallons of water...


If you absolutely need to drive the van without having it serviced ensure your coolant/water is topped off prior to setting out. Make sure you have LOTS of water on hand to top it off if needed and keep a very close eye on your temperature gauge. You should also stop every few hours even if the temperature gauge stays in the "normal" range to ensure its operating at the correct temperature. There could be a few things wrong with the van, but damage to the radiator or cracked hoses could be likely culprits.

That being said I wouldn't recommend any long trips before having this issue fixed.
