I doubt it is the gauge. The most likely problem is the Temp sensor sending faulty signals tot eh ECU which is causing your gauge to jump and it activates your engine safety shutoff to stop engine fires and such. Check the wires for breaks and shorts and replace the temp sensor.

Kia sadonna ran fin all morning but when I shut it off it won't start now, dash lights come on and when I turn the key it ticks, could it be the batterie,


Have your battery tested. If the fans ran all morning, too cool down your van it probably killed the battery. Also keep an eye on your temp gauge, and make sure it's not overheating. The temp sensor for the fans could also be faulty ; causing them to run longer than they should when you turn the van off.

My chevy van 1500 express cargo has the temperature gauge stuck at 0.everything else works fine


If the engine is reaching normal temp, you would need to test the sensor on the intake and the gauge on the dash.
The sensor provides ground to the gauge.

Overheating Express


is it acually getting hot or is it just the gauge on the dash saying so? a quality scan tool can show you what the coolant temp sensor is telling the pcm it may differ from the gauge.
