Yes a coolant tempurature sensor could cause this you need to get somone to check the resistance of the sensor when hot and see if it corresponds with the correct readings

Thank you for the opportunity. I have a Ford Escape 2001 6 cl and temperature gauge stocks on cold. Today it moves to hot then went to neutral and slowly went to cold again without moving.


Hi Ivette,

Temp sensor/sender units, ussually send a variable earth resistance dependent on temperature, so it sounds like the wiring is broken/rubbed through, causing the sporadic changes due to full earth going to gauge(hot). brocken wire(cold)

But could be a faulty sender just the same, doesnt sound like a thermostat after driving the gauge would still move in relation to engine temp, would start by checking the wiring to temp sensor, also check coolant level and monitor engine temp while driving if gauge is in-op.

Hope this helps.

The fan starts as soon as I turn the key


Temperature switch or relay can be the cause.

What would cause a toyota corrola cooling fan fail to start automatically when engine is hot.but fan runs continously when you disconnect thermal switch.


Disconnecting the thermal switch or temp sensor puts the engine computer in limp mode and the computer will activate the fan relay to prevent overheating.
The temp sensor could be faulty, or something is not telling the computer the engine is hot enough to need the fan.

2003 ford escape fans do not run in till the a/c is turned on.


There are four relays for the cooling fans .low speed control , medium speed , high speed fan control relay 2 , high speed fan control relay 1, there is also a engine cooling fan resistor .The engine coolant temp. sensor would most likely cause the check engine light to be on . There is also a dual pressure switch , this is for the A/C . The cooling fans will be turned on at 213 degress low speed , high speed at 226 degress . If you had factory scan tool or a professional type you could view coolant temp data in pcm , you could also energize the relays to see if the system is operating normally . There are other repair shops beside dealers

2001 Dodge truck will start cold-but won't start when hot.replaced battery,3 starters, starter relay,ignition switch, coil-and electrical trubleshooter?


Next time when its hot and running, bleed the fuel feed pipe at the very front of your fuel filter. It may have an air pocket in the line causing this. It not common but it does happen

Radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp switch and fuse fan works if hot wired it's on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

Car runs hot


CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.
