Radiator fans not coming on. replaced thermostat and cooling sensor

Hi Bill, is the engine actually getting hot enough for the fans to come on? if the engine does have overheating problem (but you say the temp gauge reads normal) then i would check the operation of the engine temp switch, there are two, one for the gauge and one for the fans.

Sounds like you need to replace thermostat assy and add new antifreeze and as far as your oil gauge, replace the "oil pressure sending unit". That should solve your problem

Well I would start there.
The computer takes the engine and air temp and regulates the amount of on time for the injectors among other things.
Make sure the coolant level is full, the thermostat is opening, and see if the code comes back. Could be a faulty sensor.

I just change new radiator and radiator cap on 2000 nissan quest .go on freeway .and know temp gauge very high i stop the car wait and run again ,now see a gauge go high and drop down to normal ,what is...

Make sure that the cooling system has the proper amount of antifreeze and that the fluid is full by checking and filling, if needed, by filling the reserve to the proper level. Then make sure that the cooling fans are coming on. Best test is to allow the engine to come up to operating temp while you observe the cooling fans. If they don't come on by the time the temp gauge is half way, try turning on the air conditioning to high. That should turn the fans on. If not check the cooling fan relay or module. Dan

Ive been having issues with my temp gauge sometimes it will move but it will just drop back down randomly and go back up again and sometimes it wont do anything but its never just worked properly sitting...

Its fine, temp needle going up shows that engine is warming up and as soon as the radiator fan starts, temp of coolant drop and this is shown by the temp gauge needle. In most cars (even mine) it stays in middle most of the time unless you are in a traffic with AC on, it will show up more temp. What you can do is get the radiator flushed and coolant changed. Also check the water pump. To do so when engine is cold (in first start in morning), open the radiator cap and ask someone to rev the engine. If the coolant level moves up and down then water pump is also fine.

This is sounding like a bad coolant temp sensor. Test it or replace it before you do anything else. Read this post on how to test an engine coolant temperature sensor

Thermostat or heater

If you mean that the temperature gauge stays in blue area, likely the thermostat is stuck in the open position. Yes>>> change the thermostat. Ues one rated at 195 degrees and don't forget to buy a gasket and some glue to install. When re-filling coolant, fill the system as much as you can through the radiator, Start the engine and run 'till it gets very close to operating temp. Monitor cooant level and add as needed while engine is running, cap off. When close to or at operating temp, turn engine off and wait about two minutes. RE-start engine, run with heater full on and continue filling radiator slowly till it is full. Close cap, drive about 1/4 mile, top off recovery bottle and you should be finished. (while filling, sometimes coolant will back up and spill over. this is normal. keep a pan under car to catch whatever you lost so a cat or dog dosen't drink it.)Check system for leaks... especially in very cold weather, hoses will need a small amount of additional tightening after they are hot.
Good luck

Cab Heater works sporatically

Alot of the new fords have small radiator leaks.  If the truck is low on coolant or running above 190 degrees the heater wont work.  Top off coolant and put in some radiator stop leak.  heater should start working now that the engine will run cooler
