I have a 2006 expedition 5.4 the temp gauge stays on cold whats wrong?


check your coolant. the temp is the water temp. Your radiator is out of water? you`ll burn out your water pump. Also check to see if your radiator fans are running constantly.

My heater wont work in my truck it will blow air but it wont warm up. whats wrong or how do i fix it?


If your engine temperature gauge reads normal, then the heater control (temperature setting) is probably at fault. If the temp gauge remains on COLD, then the thermostat is probably stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the temp is normal do the following:
With the truck running (outside, of course), go to the passenger side of the truck and remove the panel that is just under the glove box. Inside that area is the heater core and the controls to operate the hot/cold vents. With a flashlight in hand look in that area as someone moves the temp lever or control from hot to cold. You should see movement of the cable to the heater core. If nothing is noted, check for loose wires, disconnected cable and any vacuum leaks. You may have to replace the heater control unit. On a vehicle of this age, your best bet would be a salvage yard or EBAY...
Good Luck and I hope this helps...

Heat goes in and out and the temp gauge goes up and down


Your temp sensor has nothing to do with your heater. The temp sensor needs coolant in order to work properly. So first check the coolant level because if it is low your heater will act the way you describe. Once the coolant gets low enough the heater will blow cold. Another possibility is the radiator cap. After the engine has warmed up it expands when it cools down it contracts. As it is contracting if the cap is weak air can be drawn into the system and cause air pockets to form and will cause the same problem

A ford 2000 f-150 and the motor will not get hot. replaced radiator, thermostat, hoses, heater core, reservoir cap, fan clutch. Any ideas?


Ya the coolant temp sensor is probably bad. This would show no or little reading on your temp gauge.

How do you fix the temp gauge it stopped working ad is stuck above the H


Hello tj60576: My name is Roger I will help you. If the temp gauge is stuck? Locate the temp sensor on the motor.Disconnect the wire. After disconnecting the wire. Ground the plug end of the wire. You can do this with a extra piece of wire. Observe the temp gauge with the key on. The gauge should move to cold side of the gauge. If the gauge still reads hot or above then the problem is either in the dash or the gauge itself. You will find the sensor located on the cross over pipe front of the engine far right hand side of the tube.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rare the answer you received. This way I know the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Temp gauge reads hot when cold


That wire you are unplugging is pinched and being shorted to ground ! You need to trace that wire until you find it . Also if anyone has done any repairs recently you may want to start looking in that area .

2000 isuzu rodeo, ac blows outside air temp, i tried to recharge. when i connected unit the gauge read 70 psi. i let out psi to 50. put the charge in and it took 90% of can and read 55 psi. it still blows...


COULD BE A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS. HAVE YOU TRIED TO SWAP THE A/C RELAY FOR ANOTHER? IT COULD BE A BAD ACCUMULATOR SWITCH OR A CLOGGED ORIFICE TUBE, OR A DEFECTIVE LOW PRESSURE CUT-OFF SWITCH. TOO MANY TO LIST. TRY THE RELAY AND LET ME KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND HONEST RATING IN ADVANCE.

Temp gauge stay on cold.


Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.
