Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix

My temperture gauge on the dash is reading as if my cars over hea

My temperture gauge on the dash is reading as if my car is over heated. So i changed out my water pumpflushed my radiator and changed my thermostat but its still reading hot. Plus i dont think its my heads because there no water in my oil nor is there no white smoke coming out of my tailpipe. But when i turn off my engine the hoses that run to my radiator or sealed tight and i think that may be the problem or a censor is out. So if someone is familiar with this could u let me know.

There's probably air in your system. Next to the water pump is a stand pipe with a bleeder screw. Loosen this and run the engine until coolant starts to bubble out. Air in the system will keep coolant from flowing and the engine will over heat.

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.

The heater put out very little heat. also the temperture gauge moves very little. is this a bad thermostat. or could it be a bad heat control value.


If the Temperature gauge is moving less than before, its your Thermostat. If the Engine Temperature is the same, then your heat control valve is not opening or a duct flap(called a door) is not moving under the dash.

Having a Bad thermostat will affect how controls on the engine work and when they work.

The temperture gauge does not work. It is always


Defective coolant temperature sensor if it reads hot as soon as you start the engine. Check the wiring before replacing. The gauge itself can also be bad but not likely. The temperature sensor will look like this. 52bbcec.png

It is over heating and i can't find the temperatre gauge under the hood...


first of all check the radiator for leak or blockage. make sure the coolant is fresh. follow th eupper radiator hosr to the emgine block. there should be 3 bolts attached the themostat housing. take the themostat out and put it with hot water, maks sure the opens. the temperture sending unit should be directly under the themostat. msot likely the themostat is cause or the problem. unless the temperture gage is not reading correctly.

Temperture gauge show's hot after a one minutes running


Most likely the heat sensor.
Ensure you replace the gauge sensor with the correct type to suit your gauge.
(dont confused it with the overtemp alarm switch sensor).
Check you've got the right sensor by shorting it out to frame/ground and observing the gauge movement.

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.
