More than likely have a bad thermostat. easiest way to check if that is problem is let the engine run for at least 5-10 min. after that grab the upper radiator hose with your hand. be cautious because if the thermostat is working properly this hose can be very hot. if it does not feel hot and has no pressure inside hose (you can feel like a garden hose: difference between on and off) then you need to replace the thermostat and gasket or seal. if you do have a hot and pressurized hose than you have a bad temperature sending unit. replace the part. good luck!!!

Heater runs hot then goes cold

Do you have a temperature gage in your instrument cluster? When the temp goes cold, does the temp gage rise? Check your coolant level both in the radiator and the coolant recovery tank under the hood, and fill as necessary. If that is OK, then check your serpentine belt for wear and/or slippage around the water pump. Lastly, if you have a temp gage and are noticing fluctuations in the reading, you may need to replace your cooling system thermostat. Good luck.

When I start the engine of my ford E150 v8, the temp guage goes immediatly to the warm range, when its cold. Is this the temp sensor? Is there a way I can figure out if this is the problem?

The easiest way to start diagnosing is disconnect temp. sensor connector and connect it to the good known sensor. If gage stays where it was, then this is not the sensor. Next step is to have electrical diagram of this model and see how exactly your gage is connected. It can be reading from ECM signal, or directly from that sensor. If it is direct reading, than it can be faulty gage or dashboard controller. In case it connected to ECM it can be incorrect ECM output (which very unusual).

Temp gage on my 1998 explorer does not work. any ideas?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It can be a faulty temp sensor that's why it doesn't work. There are two locations to look at, it can be on the lower part of the radiator or it can be on the engine block. You will need to remove the connector then twist the temp sensor counter clockwise then replace. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 1993 Acura Ledgend. For some reason my heater does not continue to blow hot air, it does for a few minutes and then begain to blow cold air. It does this often now. It works and then it blows cold...

first check to see that you coolant level is full, check it after the engine has cooled down,so there is no pressure in the system. otherwise you possibly have a head gasket in the early stage of failure

95 toyota camery smells like overheating or oil burning even when engine is cold

Check radiator fluid level. Electric temp gages do not read temp unless there is water present, no water no hot temp reading.
