Unfortunately No, All of the Guages run straight into the Computer. If you bypass them you will have error codes out the Wazzu and lights on the Dash Constantly. Try a Salvage yard for a Replacement Guage Cluster.

SOURCE: Temp gauge goes from cold to hot.

You can remove the rad cap and run the engine ( do not remove cap when hot!! ) You should be able to see the coolant circulating in the rad. You can also remove a heater hose and hold upwards and start engine, if coolant flows out the pump is circulating. If all looks good at that point I would start to suspect a cylinder head gasket leak and / or cracked cylinder head. Hope this helps .. Good Luck

Just had my thermostat replaced, van smells hot, runs at just below temp midrange and the coolant bottle is empty? should I fill it with water or coolant? why is it smelling hot?


coolant of course . 50 /50 blend and probably the PINK stuff .sometimes when they get just a little low they will smell HOT even when showing normal mid range on the gauge . there should always be some liquid in the overflow jug

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

I have a 2003 alero with the v-6 what happened was driving down the road the heater works fine. then all of a sudden it was blowing cold air and the temp gauge started climbing. it started blowing how air...


Sounds like the water pump is cavitating . Replace water pump. Check coolant level also. Open the bleeder valve usually located on thermostat housing to remove air from system. close valve when coolant is present while filling. close radiator cap and top off recovery bottle to correct level. These engines are prone to overheating, do not let temp gauge get in the red.

Heating problem


I doubt it.
The sensor is for the computer and the temp gauge on the dash.
If the heater hoses are getting hot, and the radiator is full of coolant, you may have a blend door problem.
The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.

My 1998 expedition overheated yesterday (gauges did not indicate hot). It smoked and when it cooled down I put coolant in and today when I went to drive it was not wanting to accelerate and the rpm dial...


The reason it did not read hot, on your temp. gauge, is cause your temp. sensor read's coolant or water temp only, not air, if cooling system is empty, coolant temp. sensor will not read, like an air temp. sensor well, more the likely there could be a coolant leak for cooling system to be empty, also could have damage your cylinder's head's, need to have a block test and cylinder compression test done to fine out if head's are damage.

I know you dont want to hear this but sounds like you have a bad head gasket or a cracked head,you can check it with a clear bottle unhook your overflow line in put it in the bottle with water in it,if you have bubbles in the bottle you are getting compression in coolant,Hope this help you
