At first my 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (only has 59,000 miles) after driving for a while the temperature gauge would start to rise when idling but when I started driving the temperature would go back...


This sounds more like the thermostat is not opening as it should, instead of an ECM problem.

With the indications you state - goes down when heater activated - goes down when moving, that is what I would have checked first, not the cooling fan!

95 olds replaced therostat now temp gauge high then goes down when fan goes on then back up and down. Whats the cause?


You have an air pocket in the engine that is preventing coolant circulation. Let the engine heat up and then shut it off to cool the engine back down. After doing this a few time the air pocket will usually work its way out. Hope this helps:)

It sounds like your thermostat is sticking. You can tell when it sticks when your temp gauge spikes high and your blower won't blow heat and when it finally opens your temp gauge goes back down and you have heat again.

Freezing no heat with temp gauge going to 260 and red light on


You didn't say what kind of car it was, but with no heat and high readings on the gauge, my guess would be your coolant level. If that isn't the problem, then try replacing the thermostat. Other possibilities would be a defective temp sensor, or a bad electric fan on the radiator.

Temp gauge


the sender for the gauge is on the cylinder head near the spark plug if you unplug it the gauge should stay all the way cold then ground it out it will go all the way hot if that reads like that replace the coolant sensor
