This is a pretty common phenomenon. Air is moving through the radiator when the car is in motion, but not when it stops (unless the fan is on). Make sure the fan is working on the car, and don't let the gauge go much over half-way.

My 1997 ford tauras overheats at a stoplight but cools down when driving in town is this the thermostat or waterpump or?


There is a switch that should turn electric fans on next to the radiator when you're stopped. There is a switch that does that that's likely gone bad. "temperature switch" is what they call it.

My temperature guage stays in the middle, is this ok?


Yes, the temperature gauge should normally stop in the middle, between the cold and hot points on the gauge. When the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed and will keep recirculating the coolant in the engine block until it warms up sufficiently. Then the temperature of the warm coolant will cause the thermostat to open the channel to the radiator to get rid of excess heat, which should stop the coolant from over heating. So the effect of the thermostat keeps the coolant at a fairly stable temperature. When the coolant runs low, it can't transfer enough heat to the radiator and the coolant and engine then over heats. Watch for radiator leaks under your car after you have been driving it. If the coolant goes low again fairly quickly you could have a leak in a hose or the radiator itself.

Temp guage Rises/almost oveheats when Heater is on. Temp Rises to almost H then drops fast to just above C and repeats but only while heater is on


The cooling system has an air pocket in it. The best solution is to have someone with a vacuum coolant system,and drain and replace the coolant. The only other way,is to jack up the front of the vehicle,and take off the radiator cap,and run it with the heater on full blast. Wait till the thermostat opens,(when coolant level drops)...then top it off while its still running.If you buy ,or have a friend who has a tool called an "Air Lift",..it will make this MUCH easier,and cleaner to fix.

Coolant temp guage will not rise. heat blows cool.. when coolant guage does rise heat blows hot. doesnt always rise.what do i do or fix


Most likely, the engine thermostat is stuck open or missing. Changing the thermostat (or installing one) may solve your problem.

Speedometer not working


This may be the issue:

Both the speedometer and tachometer have a mechanical stop for the needles. The stop is located behind the display board.

The stop and needle contact point tend to develop a sticky residue which mechanically prevents the needle from rising above zero. At the behavior would indicate, the needles independently of one another, tend to stick at zero, yet intermittently, while driving will resume normal reading.

Disassembling the instrument cluster and carefully cleaning the stop and needle contact point with some solvent on a bent cotton swab or pipe cleaner should solve the problem. Just be careful not to break any of the delicate parts.

This problem and solution were first posted by users on the ClubLexus forums, but the brief discussion is difficult to locate.
?
If able, I will post a photo or short video of the problem and solution.

After driving for about 4-6 hours the temp rises


You should have your a/c system ck'd. Reason could be excessive system pressure and temp. This would explain the a/c safety turning off the a/c and the temp rise of the engine cooling system. Good Luck.

Temperature guage shows hot


you need to make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator and oil in the car its better to take it in before you do some damage even that the engine is not hot its heating up inside very fast

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.
