What is your DTC code? This would provide some indication on whether it is a bad sensor, thermostat, or bad water pump.

When the Coolant light is on what's going on??


Depending on the car, it could be low coolant level, or overheating. If you have a temp gauge that shows OK, it is the level.

Temperture will not rise


If the engine really is not heating up, the thermostat could be stuck open. Or you could be low on coolant and the gauge is not reading correctly.
Or if the engine is warming up, the sensor for the gauge could be faulty.

1991 Dodge Spirit Check gauges light comes on when accelerating. Car seems to get hot according to the gauges and then cools immediately down.


The first thing you should check is your coolant level. If it is low add coolant. Next start and leave the car warm up to temperture and make sure the coolant is moving, have radiator cap off and watch the coolant. What you are probably going to find is that when the car is warming up or warmed up that the coolant will be low causing an air lock in the system. When the air locks happen you will find a overheat or running hot situation. This is due to air will not cool the sytem you need coolant so when the air hits the sensors under acceleration the gauges go high and cause the check gauge light to come on.

Why my heater in 2000 plymouth breeze only gives a little heat? Could it be a hose ? I know it's not the thermostat,the blowers ar working. I am wonding if theres some hoses that could be leaking?I don't...


it could be the cold air blend door or the thermostat is the engine temp up to the middle of the gauge or close to it if so then thermostat is ok if not then go ahead and replace it.

Driving down the road the temperture gauge pegs out hot and the engine starts to run rough and finally cuts off. Pull the battery cable to reset the electricals and everything is back to normal.


likely the coolant temp sensor. Some of those newish fords have a engine protection system that shuts down cylinders, then full shutdown if the computer gets a signal that the engine is getting hot.
Good luck!

The heater is not heating the car when on hot


1st check the coolant level. Low level will cause a no heat situation as you describe. What does the engine temp. gauge indicate? Is it indicating on the low side of normal, or is it in the normal range? If it indicates a low operating temp. after car warm up, the thermostat may be stuck open, which would not allow the car to fully warm up, and again, result in the no heat condition. Let me know about checking the coolant level, and temp gauge info. Curt

Temperture Gage


First of all, it doesn't sound like your thermostat is working correctly to keep good hot/warm air coming , so I would change that, or have it changed for better heating inside. If you lift the hood & look in front of your radiator, On the engine side, you'll see a fan attached to, or in front of the radiator. It won't come on until the coolant temperature gauge gets up to proper operating temperature. Without getting in to too much detail, have your thermostat changed, and my guess is everything else will start working as it should, and whoever does the work, should know enough to check the fan operation when they do the thermostat.

Temperture icon flashes


if the light is blue it just means the car is not at operating temperature yet. let the car warm up before driving. if the light is red and only stays on for seconds check the coolant level. could possibly be a bad level sensor also if the light is red
