    Normally, engine oil guages display oil PRESSURE, not temperature.... If the guage fails to display pressure, one of several things COULD be wrong. I would check things in the following order: Wire and connection to the oil sending unit on the engine. Sending unit (sensor) on the engine. The oil guage (it is just a current display indicator - and they can fail). An easy and cheap way is to purchase a C H E A P oil guage from Harbor Freight or other supplier and connect it to your sensor.

Heaters in my kia Sedona blowing out cold air front and back

Check water/antifreeze level in radiator when the engine is cold. Make sure it's full.
If the level is full, the next thing to consider is the thermostat could be stuck in the open position. This would cause the water to stay much cooler for a longer time....thus no heat.

If that is not the cause, it could be the air temperature valve inside the air conditioning housing under the dash.

Not a real solution, but hopefully gets you on the right track to warmth.

Will a leak cause the radiator fan relay curcuit to malfunction on a 2003 jeep liberty 3.7

a leak in coolant system will cause air pocket in the coolant system around the engine coolant temperature sensor.coolant sensor is a thermistor in which when hot cool cause it resistance decrease which affect the voltage from sensor to pcm which will cause engine coolant to turn on.if coolant level okay,check coolant fan fuse and relay, if all is good,engine coolant temperature sensor could be bad or have vechicle code scan for pcm problems it control the coolant fan.fill coolant system to correct level make sure engine coolat reservoir is at full cold mark and not empty.fill coolant system check for leaks,refill coolant overflow jug back to full cold mark dont over fill, if coolant overflow stay empty you have leak either its leaking or you have radiator hoses or radiator leaking coolant.when coolant overflow jug run dry it cause air get in coolant system causing overheating problems.

1995 volvo 850 turbo no hot air

Low on coolant would be my first guess. Does the temp gauage go up to middle, normal range?Should have a low coolant light on dash, but sometimes the sensor is diabled or broken. I would relace the t-stat and the sensor next to the t-stat housing. Tou will need a 40 torx to get the t-stat off.
