If the fan is not kicking on I would check the fan by turning on the a/c. If still no fan try hooking it up to a battery (be carefully with the blades). If the fan spins then its an electricle problem, relay, fuse or thermostat switch.

My 2006 Caravan temperature gauge goes to red - engine is not overheating. Kick it into a lower gear (automatic trans) and the gauge comes back down. Is it likely the coolant sensor?


Could be.. is the system FULL? Air in it can cause some odd things. When engine and coolant are COLD (as in after sitting over night), open the radiator cap. Top off the overflow res with a 50/50 antifreeze / water mixture to HOT mark. Start engine, turn heat to hot and fan to high. Top off RADIATOR with same 50/50 mixture slowly & gradually. As the coolant circulates, it should bring any AIR trapped in the system (from heater core & engine block) to the radiator where you can replace it with the 50/50 mix. Once the coolant is HOT and stays level - about an inch under the opening, close the radiator. Monitor the overflow res and add as needed. Good luck!

It could be the thermostat but you need to check the fluid level and for any leaks (these could even be pin hole) first. If you have one of those infra-red temperature gauges you can check the temperature of the cooling system in the engine bay to double check. Generally the engine temperature should not go much about 90 deg C - this is when the electric cooling fans kick in - are these turning on?

Its possible and also that Thermostat was installed backwards. You can remove and test the Thermostat with a hot pot of water.

Sometimes you can get an airlock in the hoses and the water will not flow. You might make one last try and put on your heater to get the water circulating. A blocked thermostat will prevent circulation.

The high temp gauge will max out and then back to normal. Also the heat will not work then kick in all of a sudden.


Let me guess...When the temp gauge goes hot, the heater goes cold, and vice versa? Check your coolant level first in the radiator (when the engine is COLD) and also in the overflow reservoir. ONLY use a 50/50 mix of coolant and water, using the same COLOR coolant that is already in the radiator (if it's green, buy green, if it's orange/red, buy orange/red). Next thing to have checked/replaced is the thermostat which is inside the cooling system of the engine. Finally, and the most expensive, have the water pump checked/replaced.

I would put my money on low coolant level in the radiator. As the engine heats up, the coolant will "surge" through the system as the water pump tries to **** air through the system due to low coolant level. If the coolant isn't flowing, the heat can't escape the engine block and it starts to overheat.

You probably need to bleed the cooling system properly.

Open the cooling system bleeder screws.

Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 coolant mixture until coolant runs freely out of bleeder screws.
Close the cooling system bleeder screws
Install the coolant pressure cap
Start the engine.
Run the engine at 2,000 - 2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature. (midway on gauge)
Allow the engine to idle for 3 minutes.
Shut the engine off.
Allow the engine to completely cool.
Top off the coolant as necessary.
Run engine again at 2000 - 2500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature.
Allow engine to idle until cooling fans come on. It should come on with the gauge about 3/4 of the way to red. - if it gets to where is touches the red, shut down immediately.
When the fan comes on, put your hand behind the fan and observe the temperature of the air coming from the fan. It should feel hot. If it is blowing cold air, the coolant is not circulating through the radiator like it should. This could be caused by lots of things including an improper/defective thermostat, corroded water pump impeller, or a blown head gasket.

Temp gauge running hot


check the coolant of the radiator if it "eats" up a lot of it... there could be leaks on the radiator, its cap and the hoses or the fluid is not that enough. Check also the water reserve beside the radiator if the water decreases as you drive. If it does not go down then the water circulation is not that good. There could be a leak. If there is no leaks then you should check out the fan of the radiator if it is working.

Radiator problems


the radiator fan switch which drives the fan relay,needs to have hot coolant to operate properly,the temperature sending unit the same situation.you either have a thermostat that is stuck open,or alot of air circulating in the system.pressurize the system to 15 psi and see if it drops,if it does...you have a leak in it.my suggestion would be to fix the radiator properly.overheating that engine is going to result in needing a head gasket which is expensive.find a good used radiator.

Temp gauge goes into RED at 3000 revs and/or under load/acceler..


sounds more like a weak spring in the thermostat....not keeping the thermostat open fully under high water flow (like in higher rpms)
