The needle should stay at or just below the 3/4 mark but it may go slightly higher but that would be rare. An example would be driving with the car loaded with 4 people, a/c running on high with outside temperatures of 95 degrees or more.

1998 nissan maxima runs hot, replaced the thermostat and at times gauge still register hot, what else could cause this?


Its possible that your problem also stay in the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor resistance changes in response to engine coolant temperature.

Keep in mindthat the sensor resistance decreases as coolant temperature increases. This provides a reference signal, which indicates engine coolant temperature, to the ECM.

Temperature gauge


Find the temperture sensor on the engine and see if it is connected, if it is then test to see if its working properly if not then its probably defective and you have to replace it.

Both radiator cooling fans won't turn on vehicle overheats


The fans come on only when hot or the AC is on. There are many fuses that have to be good for it to work. The fan relay should have 2 pins hot with the key on, The other 2 should be ground. with the key off one should be hot and the other can then be ground the other pins that are ground one of them is the fan. the other becomes ground when the computer turns the fans on. If you don't have a pin thats hot at the relay all the time then theres a blown fuse or even the power wire from the battery at the battery
