Sounds like the temperature sensor needs replacement. Guage failure is a probability, but more likely the temp sensor is a problem.

The coolant temp sensor should be on the intake near the upper radiator hose.

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.

Check all wires and switch used to wire the push button ignition. Make sure none have melted due to the stress from hard starting in cold weather. If a thick enough guage of wire was not used it will get hot and could melt.

Engine hot ... heater cold ?


Check the coolant level, it could be as easy a fix as adding coolant because it's low. Low level causes engine to overheat, and low level won't circulate to heater core, so no heat situation even though engine is running hot. Let me know if this fixes it, if not I'll help .
