Is there coolant in the cooling system? If there is not enough coolant the sensor won't pick up a signal because it's not sumerged. It could be the thermostat is stuck open. Are you in a cold climate, is your anti-freeze stong enough? Your cooling system could be froze. If my calculations are correct 70 km is a little over 4 miles. I'm thinking frozen radiator.

2.2 ranger T6 was driving and the heatgauge drop I drove for about 5 km and stop The engine was hot and I saw water at rear of engine.The heater pipe came out but now it wont start,its just swinging


You may have caused internal engine damage, if it lost so much coolant that the gage didn't register, you may have just bought a new engine or a very least a complete overhaul of the whole kit..

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

My oil pressure gage just drops to 0!!!


You need to replace the oil pressure sending unit, this is what tells your gauge what the pressure is. For future information if your oil pressure drops again and its a real failed oil pump within a few minutes you will internally damage the engine. I would get a new Oil Pressure Sending Unit. Let me know if you have any questions.... Thanks!
