SOURCE: Engine hesitation, the trac off light comes and car hesitates.

This is just a shot... Get a Can of "SeaFoam" and pour it into your gas tank with a full tank of gas. Then take it for a "Spirited" drive on the freeway or highway for at least 30 minutes to an hour. (Longer is better) i have had many cars with a little hesitation or sputtering fixed with this awsome product. it is a very powerful cleaner that has chemicals that other brands simply do not have. Conditions should have improved after your 1 hour drive. and will continue to improve as you continue to drive with that treated tank of gas. If the problem persists then you need to get the OBD trouble codes and let it direct you to the failed part. At least you would rule dirt "Out of the Question" (Also read the can for other things that Seafoam can fix on your car and how to use it) also does wonders for a couple cap-fuls in the lawn-mower...Chainsaw....Snowblower...etc i Hope this helps you out... Good Luck!

SOURCE: engine temp coolant sensor, accrding to aut zones

The temperature sensor is located by the thermostat housing, it has two wiring coming out of it. The top unplugs and the bottom which is the sensor unscrews.

Why does the teptuer gauge go up HOT when the holden comadore vt is idling on the lights and falls back down when you start to drive.


first look to see if the cooling fan(s) come on when the temp gauge reads hot or above half way mark. I suspect the coolant temp sensor is faulty and not sending correct temp reading to pcm and is not turning on the cooling fans.. other possibility is the cooling fans are burnt or relay to fans also ..I would check fans first then relay info back here for more advise.

Temperature gauge goes up down


that is a strange one , i think the problem is with the exterior temp sender as the fan cutting in and temp gauge falling is what you'd expect ,try diconnecting the exterior temp gauge ,may be a fuse for it ,if that is all ok i'd get the ECU checked as may be getting a short let me know how it goes

Hello! If the vehicle is started when cold will the temperature gauge reach normal if allowed to idle? if the gauge does not, but acts erratically, does the heat work normally?
The main issue is the Check Engine Light (CEL)...Take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them run a scan to determine the trouble code or codes that are stored...Once you have the code send them to me and I'll solve the problem...Guru...saailer

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer Sports Trac. The Check Engine light came on. My Mechanic's Reader says "Low Coolant Temp." We shut off the light. I came on again. Both times, only when driving more...


The first step is to determine whether the engine is actually running cold or if the engine computer just "thinks" it is. Your temperature gauge is controlled by the engine computer. I use an infrared thermometer directed at the base of the Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) sensor while watching the ECT sensor data on the computer to see if they match. This should be done before replacing ANY parts. You need to make sure that the ECT is not "lying" to your engine computer. Your vehicle is also equipped with a Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) sensor to measure the the temperature at the cylinder head. (The ECT is located in the intake manifold.) These should read within 5 or 6 degrees from each other at all times. If it is determined that the sensors are all functioning properly, and the engine actually is running cold, then I would recommend getting a thermostat from the dealer. (I have had a few problems with aftermarket thermostats.)

Describe your 2002 Astro van temperature gauge Problem. Gauge goes to redline quickly when idling for a few minutes; "Check Gauge" light comes on. When van turned off, OK within 3 minutes or less. Temp...


Check coolant level, and possibly replace thermostat. When a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant does not circulate thru motor. Gauge stays midrange when driving, because motor is being cooled by air and or the fan. If car seems to operate completely normal, then the gauge is faulty.

Check gage light keeps coming on, but there seems to be nothing wrong, what should I check??


one gauge is tripping it on,
but you have to be fast enough to check gauges when it happens,it could be the fuel gauge going to empty,or the charging one going below 12 volts,or the oil gauge falling off at an idle,the temp gauge you should be able to catch that on if it was peaking

High idle on my 1999 Saturn SL1. The mechanical screw on the idle cam is at its minimum. The car idles at 13-1500 rpms .


Clean the Idle Air Control Valve. It's on the throttle body below the Throttle Position Sensor. Worked for me! Good luck.
