Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have just bought a Shogun. there seems to be 2 issues with it, ( it is in great shape otherwise ).

When driving about the temp gauge will be at normal but if I stop at the lights it will shoot up to red then return to normal. I have searched for the cause and some answers say it is the module behind the dashboard but how can I be sure and if so where can I buy one? 2nd, the digital display doesn't come on which is annoying as it gives good info. Any ideas on that? Thanks.

Mitsubishi FTO GPX. Water leak, steering issue

Sounds like the thermostat is stuck closed. It is possible for a new thermostat to be faulty. Check fluid level in PS and or leaking hose line. The temp gauge could be one of three things, 1 the gauge is bad,2broken wire, most possible is the sensor that attaches to the engine is bad or damaged.

The Engine Temp gauge on my 130 TDI, 04, T5 Shuttle barely moves from its start point! Heating is not great either! Related?

sounds like there the same issue and I would first check the coolant level to make sure there is enough in it.

You will need the transmission temperature checked with a mechanical test gauge, you may have a defective transmission fluid temp senor or you may have a real problem with the transmission overheating due to an impending mechanical failure.

The first thing I would check is to make sure battery is securely tied down, cables are connected, and in good shape. Sounds basic but it has caused this problem for many of us.

I would suspect either the temp guage or the coolant temperature sensor being inaccurate. The new thermostat is probably working good, or else you wouldn't have a very warm heater. If you have electric radiator fans, you might check to see if they are running all th time. Electric cooling fans should only come on when the temperature sensor reaches a predetermined coolant temp, or when the a/c or defroster is turned on. If the fan runs all the time, the engine would not reach normal operating temperature.

Shogun di-d 3.2 overheating when towing

This is not necessarily a problem with your truck. The weather this summer with the higher heat and humidity can easily push a cooling system beyond its capacity, so unless this has been going on for a long time, or persists into the cool fall weather, I wouldn't be too concerned. Keep an eye on it and a thimbs up for having the insight to figure out a quick solution to save a motor. Hope this helps.

You have air in the cooling system, it needs bleeding, this is best done from the heater hoses. you cannot have a heating or cooling sysem that is not pressurised. no water no heater no demister no temp guage

High R.P.M.s at 60 mph.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you!
I will bet that when your RPM issue happens, the temp gauge is reading low. The temp gauge should be at 1/2 at all times. What I believe is happening here is that the thermostat is sticking open, and, when the coolant drops below 172 degrees F, the OD solenoid is disengaged. This will def shoot up the RPMs. Drive the vehicle again, and note where the temp gauge is when the problem happens. If the gauge is indeed low, you will need to replace the thermostat. Additionally, a "low-coolant" condition can, at times, duplicate this condition, as the coolant temp sensor is not seeing the coolant rushing past it, and also could be the problem. Check both, and get back to me if you need additional info. I hope that this helps you eliminate you condition.
