SOURCE: 1992 jeep wrangler 2.5 liter engine still overheating

Did you put a new cap on the radiator? Small as it seems, if it does not provide an adequate seal on the radiator, than the system does not get pressurized, thus keeping the boiling point around 212 deg. your engine gets way hotter than than normally. When sealed right, the pressurized system raises the boiling point to close to 300. thats how is works. If thats not it,(assuming it is the last thing replaced) than you might have either a cracked head/ head gasket/ valve guides, cooling ports, basic large dollar items. Lets hope for your sake the problem is still in the cooling system, before you look at the motor. If you take out the sparkplugs, you'll be able to tell real quick, rusty, burnt whitish-orange looking condition. Good luck

SOURCE: 98 ford Exped. oil and engine light come on but go off on restart

did you check the transmission heat sensor or the intake air sensor these can be incorporated with temp guage on some vehicles

but theres also the problem of alternator is getting ready to give only
take an electro meter and hook up to cigarette lighter with a 2 post power maker and watch the voltage as your driving try to recreate the conditions that brought this about if the reading changes dramatically this will tell your alternator will need to be replaced at some point also dead cells in battery creates this little bump in electrical

SOURCE: 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 .

SOURCE: temp gauge goes all the way up to hot after only

You need to unplug the coolant senor that was replaced and see if the problem still exists,if so the wrong sensor was replaced.There is one that runs the cooling fan and one for the temp guage.

2005 dodge magnum rt. a/c gauges not working an i cant tell how much ac im putting in because the high pressure side is not moving from 50psi. but if i turn car off it goes up


If both sides are reading the same, the compressor is not working, or you have the gauges hooked up to the same side somehow.
The system should read what the outside air temp is until the compressor starts running.

My 93 jeep wrangler 4 cylinder temp gauge doesnt work right. when driving the gauge reads 0 when i step on the gas the gauge moves to the right temp. i have installed a new therm. new water pump new...


depending on how fast, this happens, could be an air lock in cooling syste, or a bad head gasket, or head. does the gauge ever go too high? can you hear gurgling in the rad, and does it ever push out coolant?

I am getting fault codes 34, 53, & 25 on a '93 dodge dakota 3.9L magnum...the fault code list does not give me specific enough information to fix the problems...can you help?


On all L-bodies (Omni/Horizon and related cars), along with all vehicles from model years before 1987 with EGR (nearly all of them), code 34 indicates that the EGR solenoid circuit is open or shorted — as indicated by voltages of 0 volts when the solenoid is on, or voltage of 12V when the solenoid is turned off. The power limited light will not be lit and the system will not enter limp mode.
