You may have a faulty gauge sending unit. Or the thermostat may not be closing soon enough for the engine to heat up. With a OBD II scan tool you should be able to monitor the engine temperature. Most parts stores will scan your vehicle's computer for free.

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.

2006 f150- temperature gauge stays cold but "check gauges" flashes in mini message center.


Since the temp gauge is not working correctly, you get the warning message.
Could be a faulty temp sensor or a problem in the wiring harness.

Is the engine actually over heating or just the gauge giving incorrect readings?? The stepper motor in the console's temp gauge could be defective. Have someone with a laser heat gun check the temp of the engine around the thermostat to find the correct temp.

It is much more likely you are low on coolant or you have an air bubble trapped in the cooling system. You should bleed the cooling system to get any trapped air out and make sure it is full of coolant.

1999 FORD expedtion with no heat in front nor back. Good water flow and the hoses are not very hot. The heat will be hot for about 5 to7 seconds and then get cold again. what do you think?


What is the engine temperature? It may be that the thermostat is stuck open and the engine is running cold.It may also be sometheing stuck in one of the lines that moves to block it when the flow starts.

My heater will not get warm


Check your collant level If your radiator is full then you can place carboard in from and over the lower third of the radiator to block the air flow. Watch your temp guage to be sure you don't over heat the engine. If it still does not heat up pproperly you can block more of the air flow as l;ong as the neging temp guage is not showing it running hot. If it runs too hot remove some of the carboard allowing more air flow. THe proimary reasom for the heater not putting out warm air is low coolant, blocked water flow to the heater core or a bad thgermostadt (wrong thermostadt; one that opens at too low of a temp, defective thermostadt trhat is blocked open or even a missing thermostadt. Regardles what you do just be sure to watch the temp guage as you can do serious damage to your engine if you overheat it too much. Again, be sure you have the radiator topped off properly before you start

should be fine as long as the gage goes up and down and you get heat it should be fine make sure you consider the outside temp. as the engine starts it will heat up get really hot the the thermostate opens and the gage will fall and should but not always stay low it could just be the ip gage.

Overheating engine


O man! You have a major prob!!! The head is warped, will need to be machined, and the list goes on!! If you want to keep this car do consider a rebuilt engine. That is the most frugal way to solve your prob! Sorry Frankster016
