My temp gauge on my 2003 alero goes up or down but have not ran hot. just had enginereplaced

first unconnect the battery then open your fuse box there should be a paper on the panel you lift off to see the fuses that paper should be a diagram of which fuses go to what these usually vary from make and model u probably have a bad fuse so u will have to to pick and chose from the diagram and pull the fuse that has something to do with the problem check to see if its bad if u dont know what ur looking at u should see a metal bar inside the fuse if it is broken then the fuse is bad once u do that if it isn't a bad fuse it could just be bad connection so make sure all the fuses are pushed in good if this isn't that let me know there are a few other solutions

I have a 2001 1.8 lx mondeo.The temp gauge moves to the middle position when I drive around town, but when I go onto a duel carriageway or motorway the gauge drops back to the cold end, whats going on

First thing comes to mind is coolant level.
Temp gauge only measures temp of can't read air temp.
If there's an air bubble that gets to the temp will indicate a lower temp.
I'd check for leaks...a water pump just starting to weep can cause up / down readings.

After that I'd look at the thermostat.
An experiment to try:
Prior to getting on the motorway, slide a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator and see if temp stays up.
I had a thermostat break in half once in winter...I had to do this trick to get enough heat to run my defrost....but running around in local traffic, it seemed to work fine.

If your problem was just the opposite...I'd be sending you to the lower radiator hose.

Hope this helps a little.

After driving a few miles temp gage indicator moves from middle of "C" and red line "H" to very close to "H" and then back to middle. When I turn off vehicle there is coolent...

Your first problem sounds like a thermostat that is sticking and only opening late. The second could be a leak in the overflow system or the radiator and piping system itself. That can only be found by inspection under the correct conditions. If the overflow bottle is too full it could also let off a bit of coolant that has expanded.

Wiper blade on my 98 C230 goes a quarter of the way up then stops and makes clicking noise for about 10 seconds. When I move it by hand it will go back into start position. Should I still try the lube...

sounds like the gears inside of the wiper mechanism have gone bad. there is a strip of gears in the shape of a half moon that the wiper motor rides on in order to move the wiper blade back and forth. When those gears strip out the wiper will only move a certain distance and then stop. One way to tell is if you can move the wiper arm by hand. When the gears are good the wiper arm should not move at all by hand.

After reaching operating temp, longer than it ever

It sounds like the heater core is plugged, It could possibly be the thermostat or water pump. Have you ever had the cooling system serviced? Maybe flush the system and put in a new thermostat with new anti-freeze.

1998 Camry GLI temp is not stable

Does fan come on even when heater is off ? Try it in heat mode, not defrost & see if it still stays on. If yes, you need to find the relay for the fan. There may be a few that look the same, but when you pull the right one out with key on you'll know as fan will stop. If fan stops, replace the relay.Check owners manual & fuse panel , as well as under hood.
