2001 Kia spectra thermostat. My heat went out and I am trying to trouble shoot the problem


Will Temp Gage Register any Temp? or is it just an Idiot Light?
If this is the case then You will need to run till it reaches Approximate Operating Temp, Generally 15 mins will get you there @ idle,Feel Hoses from Radiator, Are they HOT? then if you can reach Heater Hoses { usually 1/2 in/ 34 in hose } Are They HOT?, Are You getting Air out of the Vents? Is it Hot or Cold? Check AntiFreeze LVL's in Expansion Tank, Is it Full? or Empty? If Empty Fill With Recommended fluid Mixture

Auto coolant hot temp light comes on and temp gauge goes up more when idling at a light


If temp gauge is going into the red on a 3.4 engine it must be shut down or head damage can happen within minutes. I have a Monte Carlo that was overheating. I changed everything, thermostat, water pump, belt tensioner, radiator, all with no result. It would start out okay on a cold start but then I would come to a red light and the temp would creep up. Higher and higher until it neared the red zone. The heat would run cold. Most of the time, as soon as it was about to touch the red it would start to drop, the heat would blow hot again and all seemed okay but not for long. This would get worse and worse until the red hot light came on and I found myself on the side of the thruway. This problem is a blown head gasket. I had no other obvious signs, no white smoke from the exhaust, no oil in the antifreeze. I even changed the intake gaskets. Head gasket issues are common on the 3.4 liter engines.

The coolant light flashes on but the temp gauge does'nt go past the middle when the car is running


YOUR TEMP GAGE WILL NOT REGISTER CORRECTLY WHEN THE COOLANT FALLS BELOW A CERTAIN LEVEL. WHEN IT IS SMOKING IT IS EXTREMELY HOT. IF YOU HAVE A COOLANT LEAK THAT BAD IT SHOULD BE NOTICEABLE EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT HOT. YOU NEED TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE COOLANT LEAK. WATER PUMP, COOLANT HOSE, FREEZE PLUG, HEAD GASKET, RADIATOR CAP LEAK, OR RADIATOR, OR HEATER CORE. CHECK THE ABOVE AND YOU WILL FIND THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK.

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck...


Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem

Temp gauge does not register when hot


To find out about the CTS (the sensor the above clarification request is referring to), try disconnecting the wiring harness. It's right behind the thermostat housing and upper radiator hose. If your fans kick on while the engine is running, it's probably an issue with your PCM (computer).
