Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Engine overheated. Towed it home, removed thermostat and boiled it to see if it would open. It did not open. Reconnected radiator hose without thermostat and drove 5 miles. Temp guage held at normal for...


if you have cold air from your heater vents they you have air in your system. When your thermastat stuck you probably lost a lot of you coolant and if you didnt add any more i am sure thats your issue. just low on coolant now. When it goes to the heater core, there is nothing left to pump around the engine.

Good luck

Please can you help why only after about a mile the engine is red hot but temp gauge is only showing middle. is this normal. YEAR 2001 WITH SERVICE HISTORY ONLY HAD SIX MONTH.


When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.
