If the gauge reads 0, then replace the engine coolant temperature sensor first. Fill it and see if it still over heats. If so start looking for leaks and repair.

Temp.guage on instrament panel is erradic


Could be the temp sensor or the gauge on the dash is faulty.
Does the gauge go to cold if you disconnect the sensor ?

Temp gauge possibly not working


Locate the temp sensor in the coolant system and take a good look at it. Make sure it is firmly fixed in place and the wires to it are clean and not corroded. If its ok, check the connectors to the dash for damage.

I had my Alternator changed yesterday on a Ford escort gti. The battery light was on and temp gauge was stuck past hot. Once changed all was fine but today I started it up and temp gauge is stuck past hot...


The temp gauge and battery light issues may not have been related.
The gauge reads high when the circuit to the temp sending unit is grounded. It could be the gauge on the dash, or a wiring problem, or the temp sending unit on the engine.

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

Whats an engine switch for a oldsmobile 1983 cutlass


there are a few switches for the engine, the coolant temp switch, this controls the temp gauge on the dash, then the coolant fan switch that turns on the fans when engine is hot and then the oil preasure switch that lights the oil light on dash when oil preasure is low, hope this helps.

Fluctuating engine temp a/c sends out cold air intermittently


Here's the thing. The ECU will shut down AC if the engine temperature is too hot. If the coolant temperature sensor is malfunctioning (lying to the ECU) telling it that the temperature is hotter than it actually is, the computer will turn the AC OFF.
