Normal running temperature


I would look else where for the problem unless the thermostat is stuck open. Thermostats work by blocking the water to the radiator until the coolant in the block has reached operating temperature and then they start to open. As soon as they read a cooler water temperature they will start to close and restrict the flow until the operating temperature is maintained . IT would make no difference which thermostat you fitted as the number indicates when it starts to open. I would be checking the temperature sender unit and the gauge and I would be checking the coolant level in the radiator at the cap not the resevoir

It may be the temp guage itself has become inaccurate,if the guage gets to half and stays there,does not overheat and there are no other symptoms,just keep an eye on things,as there are likely no deeper problems.

No heat in 94 nissan sentra..fan works it is just


This sounds like the thermostat needs replacing as long as the radiator has the proper coolant level. If your vehicle has a temperature guage watch it to see if it is at normal operating temperature after the warm up period. If the temperature goes up and down or doesn't reach what is the normal temperature that is the problem. Normally a bad thermostat will stay open which causes the engine temperature to be much cooler than normal thus no heat.

2001 pontiac aztec, temp guage shows (very) high) temp reading. I take the battery cable off, replace cable, then it appears normal. I have done this for 4 months, everything is OK. Now it no longer solves...


if you have high miles, 75k or more I would go ahead and have tempature sensor and thermostat it self change. I don't see battery cable would have any bearing to the temperature guage or cooling process. Both switch work almost the same, at time it work well other time it read or work incorrectly because it a sign of unit becoming faulty. If the temperature sensor is faulty half of the time it well give you incorrect reading however if the temp sensor working properly and the Thermostat is not, you will also get a high temp reading due to the Thermostat is not working properly allowing the hot antifreeze to flow out from the engine to the radiator which cause the hot antifreeze to be remain lock up in the engine block. Thermostat suppose to open and close when it reach its temperature; at the same time I would also replace thermostat switch which operate the cooling fan. all three tend to go bad over times; replacing all three is a great ideas. Thermostat, thermostat switch and temperature sensor.

MY VW CITI CHICO 2001 1.4i temperature guage faulty?


good chance you t-stat is stuck open that will cause the temp gauge to not get all the way to normal operating temp. also e.c.t can cause this problem. good luck hope that helps. to bridge your connector it will not really tell you to much if you take a multi meter and check the green wire and put the other wire to ground you can see the signal voltage less then 6v
