Changed out water pump and thermostat and vehicle runs high temperature what could be issue?

Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads High

If the temperature gauge reads high, it could mean your engine is overheating. Another reason your reading might be high is you could be losing coolant. A small leak or evaporation may cause your radiator to slowly lose coolant. A third reason your temperature gauge reads high could be because the thermostat is broken. If this is the case, you may need a coolant temperature switch replacement. The last reason the temperature gauge could read high is because of a water pump, or water pump gasket failure. If the water pump is malfunctioning, it may need to be replaced by a professional.

What to Do If Your Temperature Gauge is High

If your temperature gauge is reading high, it means your car is overheating. This is a very serious matter and you should never drive an overheating car. If your car starts to overheat, shut off the air conditioner and open the windows immediately. If this does not reduce the overheating, turn on the heater as high as it can go. If this still doesn't work, pull over on the side of the road, turn off the engine, open the hood carefully, and wait until the vehicle cools down. Never open the radiator cap while the engine is hot - coolant can spray and burn you. Once the vehicle has cooled, take the car to a mechanic right away so they can diagnose the problem. Cars are especially susceptible to overheating in hot climates, like what's common in cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, or Atlanta.
The temperature gauge is an important tool in your vehicle that shows the temperature of your engine's coolant. Contact YourMechanic and have your car inspected for overheating if it reads too high, as this can cause serious problems...

Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads Cold

On most vehicles, the temperature gauge reads cold until the engine has run for a few minutes. If the temperature gauge still reads cold after the engine has warmed up, the gauge may simply be broken. Another reason the temperature gauge could read cold is if the thermostat in the vehicle stays open. With the thermostat stuck open, the engine can be overcooled, causing a low temperature reading. If this is the case, the thermostat may need to be replaced.

There is no symbol for a fuse location on my fuse board or in the picture, does my radiator fan just work of a relay, and if so where can I find this relay

Your fan motor runs off the engines temperature sending unit located on the termostat housing. If this sensor is not working, the gauge inside your vehicle will go to hot right away an indication your sensor is faulty. If you disconect the sensor conection from the fan your far should start working..but it will run and never shut off. This means temperature sending unit needs changing.

My 1992 Chevy cavalier used to run at 1/4 temperature gauge, started running super hot so I replaced the water pump... Now it stays at 1/2 temperature gauge steady. Why? Also, how does electric fan work?...

I'm not sure about the electric fan relay or fuse are but you may want to have your radiator flushed. It's possible that some of the tubes in it are plugged up and so your cooling efficiency could be low.

My engine in my 04 Sebring is running hot, andthe a/c is blowing hot air. Doesn't happen everyday. What's wrong?

Your A/C has it's own little radiator that sits right in front of your engine's water-filled radiator. Heat from your engine radiator is prolly transferring itself into the other smaller radiator and over-whelming it. When any engine is running hot, it usually turns out to be a bad themostat, bad temp-sensors (that run your electric cooling fans on the radiator (or one (or both) radiator fans have died). I would start with the thermostat since it's the cheapest....

if your talking about the over head temp reading that is an entirely different system.the temps you show at 178,169,173 are all below what they should be,it should have a 195 degree thermostat in that engine,where did you get those temps,if you got them from the dash you should change the temperature sending unit.
re-flashing a computer is done if Chrysler found problems in vehicles and would download the new info to the computer to correct them,

When the engine temp looks normal on the gauge but you get no heat inside unless your keeping the RPMs up by driving it,It usually means the fluid in the radiator is very low.wait until it is cooled completely and remove the radiator cap and fill completely,Check resovour and fill to correct level,
