I have a Daihatsu terios kid 2002 Motor fan not operating temperature gauge is normal about center of the gauge


The fan only operates when the engine/coolant temperature exceeds the thermostatically controlled fan. At idle observe the dash engine temperature and fan. Before the gauge reads above normal the fan should operate.

My 2007 chevy uplander's cooling fan kicks on the moment I start the engine, stops when I turn off the engine, temp gauge reads normal, check engine light is not on, thermostat is ok, flushed radiator,...


Hi Bajil, Have a diagnostic scan carried out and have the coolant temperature sensor and relay inspected for correct operation. It sounds as if a cable has become disconnected or that the operating circuit has become defective. The cooling circuit operation is correct when the fan operates when the engine temperature raises a fraction above normal. The fan will run for a number of seconds and then switch off, thereby maintaining the 'normal' operating temperature. Regards John

Where should the temperature guage be


normal operating temperature of most temp gauges is around the 1/2 way mark between C and H. The width of the needle either side will be ok.

Radiator fans not working on a 99 dodge Grand Caravan


Hi there:
The engine coolant temperature sensor is a variable resistor with a range of -40 degrees F-265 degrees F (-5 degrees C-129 degrees C).


The engine coolant temperature sensor provides an input voltage to the PCM. As the coolant temperature varies, the sensor resistance changes resulting in a different input voltage to the PCM.


When the engine is cold, the PCM will demand slightly richer air/fuel mixtures and higher idle speeds until normal operating temperatures are reached.


The engine coolant temperature sensor is also utilized for control of the cooling fan.

Check this test procedure:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. Detach the coolant temperature sensor electrical connector.
  3. Using a DVOM set to the ohms scale, connect one lead to terminal A and the other lead to terminal B of the coolant temperature sensor connector.
  1. With the engine at normal operating temperature, approximaterly 200 degrees F (93 degrees C), the ohmmeter should read approximately 700-1000 ohms.
  2. With the engine at room temperature, approximately 70 degrees F (21 degrees C), the ohmmeter should read approximately 7000-13,000 ohms.
  3. If not within specifications, replace the engine coolant temperature sensor.
  4. Test the resistance of the wiring harness between PCM terminal 26 and the sensor wiring harness connector. Also check for continuity between PCM connector terminal 43 and the sensor wiring harness connector. If the resistance measures greater than 1 ohm, repair the wiring harness as necessary.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Hi I have a 2004 trailblazer with a 4200 vortec and I noticed that when I use the A/C the heat gauge runs about 210. The water pump seems to be ok


210 degrees (thereabouts) is the normal operating temperature on this engine. A lower temperature indicates a stuck open thermostat and can cause poor gas mileage.

Normal engine operating tempurature can vary from 180 to 220 degrees depending on the age of your car and what kind of modifications it's had done to it.
Your 01 Escape is going to be normal in the 200 to 220 range.

Thermofans don't kick in, but temperature seems ok


Hello... You should not be concerned... This is normal... Also, normally you should not hear the thermostat. But the Fans don't normally turn on until about 100 degrees centigrade....

Good Luck

2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally


Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.
