Possible that there is circuit error or the posistor reading is giving erros to the circuit to trigger the LED. If the guage is correct then there is no cause for alarm but to concur and find the solution. so check using a thermometer and confirm which is right. if so the circuit must be checked.

My 2000 Toyota Echo has the red engine temp light flashing. I checked the coolant container about an hour after I parked in the shade of my house. (95 degrees here today and I was driving on the highway...


a flashing check engine light (CEL) is a warning to stop driving-one that is on steady (not blinking) means something is wrong, but blinking is BAD-make sure it is completely cooled down, and fill the overflow/surge tank, start it up (use 50/50 antifreeze) and let it idle until the engine temp is all the way up-this can take 10-15 minutes, make sure the heater is on high temp setting and the fan is on-look at the temp gauge if it has one to see if it looks normal. If all looks good, fill the tank to the FULL mark (or a hair above it) and put the tank cap on tight. Drive the car for about 10 minutes, and pay attention to the temp gauge-if it looks good, and the engine is alright, the CEL probably with either not light or will go off by itself.

It is possible you did damage driving it with a flashing CEL, however-if so look for leaks, smoke out of the exhaust, poor running/performance, or more ominous signs of trouble like air bubbles in the overflow tank, oil in the antifreeze of antifreeze in the oil-aluminum engines do NOT tolerate overheating, if you ever see a high temp gauge and/or a flashing CEL-STOP and get it checked out, you will save yourself a lot of money being prudent.

Hey, saw your posting and just wanted to ask if you found a solution to that problem because I'm having the exact same problem. I just started this morning, my gauge showed it as being in the red area so i figured it was bout to overheat. But when I would accelerate the temp gauge would start to come down to a normal level. But everytime I stop it would elevate to the red area. I havent tried the thermostat thing( it seems it didnt work for you I see) If you find a solution enlighten me at my email...Kbrodie@ci.durham.nc.us

I think the light you are seeing is for low coolant. There may have been a small air pocket in the system. So just check the coolant level. If it is low add some. It's not uncommon to add a small amount a day or two after work was done on the coolant system.

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.

Please can you help why only after about a mile the engine is red hot but temp gauge is only showing middle. is this normal. YEAR 2001 WITH SERVICE HISTORY ONLY HAD SIX MONTH.


When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.
