Could be a gearbox cooler fault if ure engines temperature is 90 degrees thats ok because thats known as operating temperature, ure engine is most efficient at that temperature, however if u have a cooler fault with ure gearbox then this may be causing it to overheat internally and may damage ure gearbox in constant use i would advise having ure gearbox cooler checked.

Why Temperature while iddling it goes over 90% but while driving it goes lower than 35%

Check and make sure your cooling fans are operating. Air flowing thru the radiator is what removes the heat from the coolant. If the fans are not pulling air thru the radiator when the vehicle is not moving the temperature will rise until the vehicle over heats. But when the vehicle is in motion air is forced thru the radiator removing the heat from the coolant and thus, the vehicle operates at normal temperature.

Mariva 1.4. Why does temperature gauge reading fluctuate?

check grill and radiator fins are not plugged and fan is not damaged and is working.
sounds like a thermostat or water pump issue.

Runs hot

Some times when the cars overheat after driving it for a while could be because the water pump blades are in bad shape, there's a leak that has not been detected, the thermostat is not opening when it should, etc. Normally the thermostat is located near the water pump. The water pump is normally located on the front of the engine (which is where the drive belts are). Some cars have the engine placed sideways in relation with the front of the car, so don't confuse the front of the car with the front of the engine. If I'm not mistaken, your 1996 Dodge Intrepid has an engine that is placed facing towards the front of the car. If that's the case, look for the hoses that come from the radiator and they should lead you to the water pump (normally the intake of water) and to the thermostat (normally the return of water to the radiator). If I recall correctly, the thermostat compartment should be right in front of you when you open the hood, right in the middle close to the radiator, but as I said above, if is not there, just follow the hoses from the radiator and you'll find it. The thermostat's work is to stop the water from going back to the radiator until it has reached a particular temperature, at which point it should open to let the hotter water out of the engine into the radiator to cool down a bit, and when the "cooler" water from the radiator makes it into the engine the temperature of the water will make the thermostat close again. Keep in mind, every time I say water I mean water mixed with coolant/antifreeze. You're NEVER suppose to just put water alone in your engine as a regular practice. Only in an emergency situation where you don't have any other choice would you do that, in order to make it to the nearest place where you can replace it with the proper water/coolant/antifreeze mixture. Thermostats are sold by temperature. Some times you can find thermostats that have lower or higher temperatures stamped on them or on the box. The use of those depends on the climate you live in (cold north states, hot south states, caribbean, etc.) Ask your mechanic or auto parts expert to see which one is the proper one for your car in the state you live in. In some cars you can check the water pump without having to take it out just by removing the thermostat and putting everything back together (except the thermostat, of course), then taking the radiator cap off. Turn the car on to see if the fluids in the radiator are circulating properly. If not, then you'll have to take the pump off to investigate deeper. Don't forget to replace the thermostat in it's proper place, since most cars use sensors that work upon the temperature of the engine and its water to do different things. So it's not a good practice to eliminate a thermostat on a car. Also, verify that the radiator cap is in good working order. Some radiator caps work just like the thermostat, when they reach a particular high temperature they open to liberate excessive pressure to prevent the radiator to explode or crack, etc. Thermostats and radiator caps are not that expensive, so if you are going to do this tests, you might as well just replace them with new ones anyways. That way you'll know you will not have problems with those in the near future. Hope this helps you! Best wishes!

Car keeps overheating

Is this a situation where it starts overheating when you're sitting still, like at a stop light or something??..... and then becomes normal when you move down the street or highway at a good clip??? If this is the case, likely you have an electric fan problem. This is quite common. It can be a problem with the electric fan motor, a sending unit, or a relay of some kind.. Some less likely causes may be your radiator grill clogged up with dead bugs.... or maybe a worn out radiator or cooling system pressure cap. If it is a case of it overheating under almost all circumstances, I would suspicion the engine coolant thermostat sticking in the closed position. (A thermostat stuck in the "open" position causes the engine to hardly EVER get totally warmed up to normal operating temperature...). Good luck.

I have a golf 5 2005 and the temp gauge will rise to 90 which is normal then return back to the resting position, i am not losing water. is this a sensor problem. thanks

possible the sensor or the thermostat warning that either is going to stop open or close where is dangerous to the engine.When you do have this situation before you do anything just do a test, switch the engine off and carefully check if the same temperature feeling is on radiator vents radiator upper and lower hoses. If you have every were the same it is better to renew the thermostat.Apply to an authorized garage for the replacement.

My temperature light keeps coming on and do i solve this problem

I rather actual temperature gauges over lights, since you know if you're truly running hot or not.
In your case, I would recommend that when this happens, have someone use a thermal indicator (maybe autozone can do this) to see what your engine temp is and see if it's running hot. The light is tripped by a sensor that is activated by excessive heat from the engine.
If the engine temp is normal, replace the sensor. If it's hot:
1. Make sure you're oil level is good
2. Make sure the coolant level is good
3. Make sure the water pump is working
(I'll assume your radiator is not stopped up)
4. Consider replacing the thermostat.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Overheated motor

Have you replaced the radiator cap and if you have a expansion tank fitted check that also. As the water temp rises to normal temp it send water to the expansion tank and when it cools down it sucks it back. Check that you have the right cap on radiator it should have a return valve in the middle on the inside. The expansion tank must a solid cap.
