Temp guage does not move


There are 2 sensors 1 is temp sensor for dash gauge and 1 is engine coolant sensor for computer. Does the upper radiator hose get hot and pressurized. The engine coolant sensor has two wires one has a reference voltage 5 volts and the other is signal return to computer with key on is will have a minimal voltage .25 volts this tells you that the wire is not broken between sensor and computer. the sensor is a negative coefficient sensor average sensor range about 390 ohms warms and 2400 ohms cold engine.

2005 impala temp gauge not working light says overheating replaced thermostat temp sensor and bleed system. Any thoughts


Remove the radiator cap, let the car run. When the car is at temp. and the thermostat opens you should see coolant circulating in the radiator. If there is coolant flow and you know for a fact that the engine is not actually hot,(check with a laser thermometer: point the laser at the engine block and read temp.) then you more than likely have a problem with the coolant temp. sensor. Check the connections, replace the sensor.
If you do not see coolant circulating in the radiator then you have an issue with either a thermostat, water pump or possibly a blockage or at worst a problem in the head. Check the overflow with the car running, if it is steadily "blowing bubbles" in the over flow (like someone blowing bubbles into a cup with a straw) then there is compression leaking into the cooling system and there is a problem with the heads. Remove the heads and have them checked for cracks at a machine shop.
If there is no "blowing bubbles" then I would remove the thermostat, run and check for circulation in the radiator again. If it is flowing, then replace the thermostat. No flow, Check the radiator with a laser thermometer. With the car at temp. point the laser at different areas of the radiator and see if you have "cold" spots. If you do then you have blockage at the radiator. If you have consistent readings across the radiator that is not "cold" then change your water pump.
I hope this has been helpful and helps you to solve your problem.

How do you replace the coolant temp sensor on a R56 cooper


This coolant temp sensor is located at the top right rear of the engine. If you are standing in the front with hood open it will be to your right at rear of the engine.
Depending on if the car is supercharged or not the sensor is in the same area, the only thing between the two is if its super charged you will need to remove the air inlet and turbo hoses to gain room to get to sensor.
This is easy to replace, just unplug the connector and then using a socket remove the sensor. Note: this should be done with a cold engine , and a pan will be needed under the car to caught coolant that will flow out.
Keep radiator cap on to limit the amount of coolant that runs out when sensor is removed. have new sensor ready to install as quick as you can to avoid lots of coolant loss.
When done, fill coolant as needed. good day.

2003 chevy cavalier with no heat and temperature doesn't rise past 40 degrees engine code P0128 comes up when checked and the thermostat and radiator have been replaced still isn't fixed what do i do?


A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Low engine coolant level
  • Leaking or stuck open thermostat
  • Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
  • Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
  • Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

Sounds like you have coolant leak if you are loosing coolant or a bad thermostat. I would replace the thermostat, they run about $10. The other fan is an aux fan and will only run when the a/c unit is on.

Trying to locate the coolant temperture sensor on a 2003 nissan sentra gxe


Engine coolant temp sensor should be on the drivers side of the engine block. Follow your top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. near that you should see a sensor (it has a clip on it where the wires attach).

97 transport 3.4 engine- New radiator, thermostat,temperature sensor, water pump and new low coolant level sensor. Temperature guage goes to 260 degrees but engine does not over heat. Bled air from cooling...


Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

Cooling fan switch/or sensor


The Coolant temp Sensor is located right under the top radiator hose (on the engine side), with a little black connector!, You might have to remove th etop hose to get to it with a deep socket and extension!.
Also Dont Forget to blled the coolant system by the bleeder valve uptop right near/above the coolant sensor!.(10MM Mini socket w/ extension IIRC!)
