    add some thing to a system already created is not the best thing to do, but you will need to drill a hole with engine cold and took apart to the thermosthat base case made by a professional and a new thread needs to be done there you will be able to conect with hi temp sealant film and on the same size adaptor that most likely came with these gauges, after that make sure the cooling system is bleeded out the air and fill with coolant. now before drill that hole make sure it will not void you warranty because these modifications and make sure the part where the hole is going to be drilled is strong enought to take all the stress from the ultra high temperature you got with an engine running

The temp senor is a gray two pin connector behind the fan shroud on the driver side on the front of the motor right under the edge of the intake follow the wires that go between the fuel filter and oil filter and you cant miss it

Why are my glow plug light is flashing all the time and on first start in morn it coughs and splutters and smokes bad from exhaust wat is wrong had coolant temp sensor changed today please help im a female...


I think you are referring to a different indicator light. A glow plug is a Diesel engine part and I do not think an American version has a Diesel. There is a "check engine light" which is an indicator of trouble and will display as you described.

Go to a Advance , Autozone, or Oreilys autoparts store. You can ask for a free scan to diagnose your problems. The coolant sensor can relate to a cold start problem. Some models use 2 temperature sensors. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates engine controls.

You will need to know if you replaced the sensor to the dash gauge instead of the engine control sensor. Both use heat to set engine controls.

Did it overheat then loose the coolant or did it loose the coolant and then overheat? Are you getting any codes? 1) It could be that the EGR valve has stuck closed or the exhaust port to it is choked with carbon - diesels are prone to this. With a closed off EGR the engine will run very hot as no cooling exhaust is being added to the intake charge. 2) Just to rule out a gasket failure start the engine with the coolant filler cap removed. Does the coolant appear agitated? are there bubbles being forced out? Now check the underside of the oil filler cap and look for any mayonnaise build up....if there is a leak into one of the cylinders there may also be one into the oil passageways.

Dash temp guage goes to red on 2000 ford focus dohc zetech


Because you have done so many repairs already I would most likely say that the gauge is defective. I would use a manual temp probe and probe the coolant temp after the car has reached operating temp. Coolant will be between 180- 230 degrees. If coolant temp checks out and you can see coolant moving in radiator and the vehicle does not overheat then you will need either a gauge or a coolant sensor. To locate the sensor it should either be mounted in the thermostat goose neck housing or the intake manifold.

I WOULD SAY TAKE IT AND HAVE IT HOOKED TO A DIOGNOSTIC SCANNER TO PIPOINT WHAT IT IS FOR SURE, IF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON ESPECIALLY, BUT IT IS HARD TO GIVE AN ANSWER WITHOUT KNOWING IF IT IS A GAS OR DIESEL,I WASN'T SURE IF THE 04 6.

sound like engine getting hot when you pull a heavy load going up hills. when putting load on a engine it will over heat and will lose power because it inhales less air by volume.make sure your air filter is not clogged.a diesel engine needs a good air flow or breathe the air filter need to clean.also a restricted exhaust.if you have a restricted air filter and exhaust system the turbo not going to work good.also check coolant fan clutch.if you turn it by hand and it free wheel fan clutch needs to be replaced.if cooling fan clutch has resistance then its good.a bad coolant fan clutch will cause engine to over heat.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

2004 diesel hard to start when cold


It sounds more like the glow plugs, the older models had trouble out of the module, but the 6.0 is pretty safe from all those problems. And don't forget to use the correct fuel additive for diesel engines, it helps .

2005 f350 blows white smoke when on the throttle hard.


Could possibley be a coolant leak, but no guranteed, if too much fuel is being injected for the amount of air entering, diesel fuel can cause a white smoke. I would check the air filter first. Is the boost gauge working, and if so how many PSI of boost are entering the engine?
