It seems like your Temperature Gauge Sending Unit is bad, have it checked out before your engine overheats.

Temperature needle stays on the hot and doesnt move even when the car is cold?


YOur guage is faulty. Your will need to replace your guage if it stays in the hot position even when your car is off and your key is out of the ignition. If it only rises to hot when you turn the key to the run position, you have a wire between your guage and your temp sending unit that has been gounded out. Usually this happens when a person opens their hood to add oil or perform some minor maintenance on the engine and inadvertantly bumps the sensor or switch or wiring. This causes about 65% of these minor issues people incur, but if it does stay all the way up with your key out of the ignition switch, then you will need to replace your temp guage.

Hi have a 2004 freestar I changed radiator-, water pump , thermostat, engine coolant if I drive on flat street my van runs good temp is normal but if I go uphill the gauge goes up to almost red once I...


Sounds like a faulty temp guage/r a strange malfuntion in a sensor to me as well, only doing it when it going up hill really makes no sense for the way the cooling system works so I doubt that its actually running hot, which is likely why he asked about the gurgling noise, it would force water back into the resivoir if it was running hot assuming that the thermostatic radiator cap is working properly.

1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.


Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

How do you fix the temp gauge it stopped working ad is stuck above the H


Hello tj60576: My name is Roger I will help you. If the temp gauge is stuck? Locate the temp sensor on the motor.Disconnect the wire. After disconnecting the wire. Ground the plug end of the wire. You can do this with a extra piece of wire. Observe the temp gauge with the key on. The gauge should move to cold side of the gauge. If the gauge still reads hot or above then the problem is either in the dash or the gauge itself. You will find the sensor located on the cross over pipe front of the engine far right hand side of the tube.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rare the answer you received. This way I know the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Temp gauge in dashboard not working, truck not running hot, antifreeze not leaking


Try testing the heat sending unit, to do this pull the wire from the tempature sensor and ground the senor wire to a good ground, next turn key on and watch gauge, if it moves over to hot replace the sending unit, if it does not you have one of four problems, one a bad gauge and that I can give you instructions on how to replace it also if other gauges are not working it could be the voltage regulater in the dash,and that you would need instructions on how to fix it.
