Sounds like you might have a sticky thermostat. I had cars do this same thing and it normally only happend the first time you would use the car for the day and then the rest of the day it was fine. But it just takes a little more heat to get it to open causing the engine to over heat for just a min. Then it opens and the temp goes down and works normal after that. I would change the thermostat right away cause it could get worse soon and not open at all.

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

Temp gauge pegging out, but engine isn't hot to the touch.


You could replace the sending unit to cross it off the list of possible problems.
You could check resistance cold and then with the engine at normal temp too. The gauge on the dash could be faulty too.

1999 DODGE NEON OVER HEATING ISSUES


You probably just need to "burp" your cooling system. Run the car (from cold) with the radiator cap open and the heater on full blast. As the engine heats up and the water level goes down, fill it up until it stays full and starts to overflow.

NEW RADIATOR,1 YEAR WATER PUMP, NEW THERMOSTAT, STILL OVERHEATS,SENSOR OK, ERRATIC READINGS ON HEAT GAUGE WHEN DRIVING A SHORT TIME GAUGE GOES UP TO HOT AND ENGINE IS HOT. PARK FOR SHORT TIME AND THEN TURN...


Check first if the fan is running, you can do this by pulling out the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. You should see the fan go on. If the mechanics has checked out everything, I suggest to see if there are added load on the engine such as busted bearing on the pulleys for the serpentine belt. Observe the coolant if it is boiling hard when you notice the temp go up. It might be a problem withe the sensor which triggers the ECU to shut the engine.

After driving in hot weather for 20 to 30 minutes the car stalls


Sounds like your coil pack is going bad. When they start to go bad, they will fail when they get hot but when they eventually cool down the car will run as normal. I would replace your coil and that should take care of your problem. Thanks for using FixYa!

Water temp mal function


Unfortunately No, All of the Guages run straight into the Computer. If you bypass them you will have error codes out the Wazzu and lights on the Dash Constantly. Try a Salvage yard for a Replacement Guage Cluster.
