Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.

2005 chevy equinox. The needle on the temp gauge is normally steady but from time to time swings back and forth from hot to cold and then normal, it also shows a code of p1245. What could be wrong??


The code P1245 is for the Intake Plenum Switchover Valve.

This probably has nothing to do with the gauge fluctuations. The gauge problem is probably one of three possibilities:

  1. Low coolant level in the system. When coolant levels get low, air moves thru the system and when it reaches the temp sensor, will cause fluctuations.
  2. Defective coolant sensor. These can fail over time as do all sensors.
  3. Defective gauge in the dashboard.

Transmission lines not cooling


Have you checked the coolant level in your radiator? GM puts a cooling unit in the bottom of the radiator, and that is connected to the tranny cooling system. Check for oil(tranny fluid) in your coolant of the radiator. Don't panic if you see it, just pull the radiator and have it fixed, or buy new radiator, then change all fluids in tranny and radiator.

Hello I have a 06 Ford freestar I'm getting a


The cooling system may be low on fluid.
The code is for a temp sensor high voltage which could be a wiring problem or something else.
The sensor needs to be in contact with liquid coolant to work. The computer is not getting an acceptable signal from the sensor, so the check engine light is on and the fan runs for safety. The sensor for the computer is different than the one for the temp gauge.

Where is the coolant temp sensor on a 2000 ford taurus


just to the right of the thermostat. there are two similar looking sensors side by side. Match up the wire connection on the new ECT sensor to the existing sensor. This will help you determine which of the two sensors is the correct. Then you can remove the faulty sensor and replace.

2003 Town & Country - no heat or gauge movement


If the coolant level (antifreeze) level is low there may not be enough fluid in the system for the temperature sensor to register a proper reading ( think of it as holding an oral thermometer just outside of your mouth).

Insufficient fluid passing through the heater core (small fan that blows through a small heated radiator) may not be enough to produce heat.

However: At increased speeds the engine may be heating what little fluid there is to a point to supply heat to the heater core, and register on the temperature sensor.

The heat on my 2000 Ford Taurus is not that good. Takes forever to heat up, but still not that good. Turning the fan up on high makes it worse. Best lukewarm heat is turning my switch to halfway on fan....


these cars are infamous for coolant contamination cause restrictions in the heater core. i suggest performing a heater core flush followed by a complete cooling system flush. i have seen this dozens of times in these cars and this has been the fix nearly every time. good luck!

1992 Ford Taurus with a 3.8l V6 the cooling fan


The Taurus has Two temp sensors. One for the dash, which is isolated, then one for the PCM, it also controls when the fan relay should actuate. Its a 2 wire sensor, just above the thermostat. If you remove the harness from that sensor, and the cooling fan comes on, at any temp, (should take 5- 10 seconds) then thats your fault.

Temp gauge raises quickly starting cold engine. Told it could be a coolant sensor. Is this a big deal or can I just keep monitoring my coolant level? 1995 Saturn


Any cooling system fault in JULY/AUGUST is a big deal. This sensor is 22$ and can be installed in a COLD engine in minutes.Very small cost for accurate gauge so you can monitor gauge and know if real overheating conditions exist.I would probably spring for a new thermostat while Im servicing that sensor and coolant just for good measure. stay cool

2001 ford taurus heater only bows cold air-no heat at all=ac works great tho


check coolant level in overflow bottle and the radiator first.

check to see if temp blend door is rotating back and forth. Rotate temp knob while watching the motor that operates the blend door under the dash.

check to see if both heater hoses are hot where they go into the cowl in the engine compartment into the heater core. If not hot, check temp gauge to see if it reads nomal, if not replace thermostat.
