Cheap fix. Diagnostics will cost $60 to $90. Sensor, $20 to $30. If that doesn't do it. Then it is the temp motor or the logic chip in the dash. Dashes aren't cheap

My trooper 1999 has new radiator water pump and therostat. When I drive sometimes the gauge goes to 3/4 never to hot and then goes right back to normal. Seems like it does it when it's really hot out...


it may still have some air in the water system this can make the sensor rise and drop, raise the water level buy putting a funnel in the filler so the water is higher than the engine you will need to seal it so it dont leak. and larger the funnel the better. run engine up to temp and squeeze out the pipes on the radiator lines and any other pipe you can reach safely. let the engine cool down and remove the funnel the extra high with the funnel helps remove air pockets. should be a good 6 inches higher than the highest point on the engine.

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

I've been having trouble with my 95 Deville. It stalls when l'm on the road sometimes and now I can't get it started. I've had it checked at several places and no one can find the problem....


I had a Cadillac under warrantee & had to tell the
dealer what to do,so you know my feelings about them

I suspect the fuel pump failed

The pump running doesn't tell you anything

A pressure gauge on the shrader valve, on the
engine will be a good start & you could drive it
with the gauge taped to the windshield

So all these shops & a dealer,just told you to go home
they don't care? Sadly I know the routine

No you have to make sure your just looking for fuel &
not a bad crank sensor etc. If you get no crank signal
the fuel pump will time out after 10 seconds or whatever

You have to find the right shop,apparently not an easy
feat in your area.

Some vehicles need an oil pressure switch to actuate
the fuel pump

I am just throwing out generic suggestions here,not nec
your cars systems

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8 not coming on. I have replaced the temp sensor on the water pump, temp sensor on the block, all relays, fuses are good, replaced the ecm (engine control...


On a vehicle this age, it is likely that the fans themselves have worn out. Test the fans by running battery power directly to the positive contact. If they start, they are OK. On 4.3 motors, there is also a seperate temp sensor to signal the fans, usually called a fan switch. I believe it operates independent of the ECM. Another possible culprit is a bad ground at the fans or even a loose or corroded negative battery cable.
