Sounds like you have a bad coolant temp. sensor or the circuit for that sensor has a short to ground.

Temp gauge possibly not working


Locate the temp sensor in the coolant system and take a good look at it. Make sure it is firmly fixed in place and the wires to it are clean and not corroded. If its ok, check the connectors to the dash for damage.

Auto coolant hot temp light comes on and temp gauge goes up more when idling at a light


If temp gauge is going into the red on a 3.4 engine it must be shut down or head damage can happen within minutes. I have a Monte Carlo that was overheating. I changed everything, thermostat, water pump, belt tensioner, radiator, all with no result. It would start out okay on a cold start but then I would come to a red light and the temp would creep up. Higher and higher until it neared the red zone. The heat would run cold. Most of the time, as soon as it was about to touch the red it would start to drop, the heat would blow hot again and all seemed okay but not for long. This would get worse and worse until the red hot light came on and I found myself on the side of the thruway. This problem is a blown head gasket. I had no other obvious signs, no white smoke from the exhaust, no oil in the antifreeze. I even changed the intake gaskets. Head gasket issues are common on the 3.4 liter engines.

Ford escort temperature gauge going into the red enough water in the radiator


you need to see if the fan is working properly,eg;you can feel air being pulled through the radiator,or if its electric does it turn on and run quickly enough.It may even be the thermostat is not working properly,it could even be the water pump impeller(like propeller,pushes water through system)is corroded and water doesnt flow properly,but you can see by taking the radiator cap off and running the engine and holding the revs up and you will feel the water flowing past your finger ...pumps probably ok,try these things ,,,good luck
