If it worked before, maybe a bad/wrong sending unit. Check the connection also.

1987 jeep Cherokee temp gauge moves when car starts then goes. Back to 0. I replaced temp sending unit what now


ever consider it's telling the truth, (an IR pyro gun (tool) answers that in 1sec flat.
if it is truthing ,then that means the thermostat is missing,
or stuck open or it has one of those abominations, a failsafe Stat.
or air pockets below the stat causing it to go nuts, and the coolant sender too, goes double nuts, because of stat and because the coolant sender don't work in AIR. see? FULL IS KING> is it.

of when dead cold is the Rad FULL>????? cap off?
if not, BINGO>?
then does the rad hose get fully hot with a hot engine.
hand touches top rad tube and hand flies off, bam, 180F+
that be hot. is it?
(look ma, no tools?)

if the coolant is at 180f , rad full
and the gauge reads wrong, it might be a bad gauge or wires to it.
but that 180f thing is #1 , is it?

96 park ave temp only gets 160 replaced stats twice


If the temp gauge is reading 160 when the engine is warmed up, the problem could be air in the cooling system, a faulty sending unit, or gauge.

After my 96 ram 1500 318c.u. gets up to temp. the temp gauge keeps going up. it never has over heated but i dont drive it very far. ive replaced upper and lower hoses, thermastat and radiator cap. Im lost?...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. That would be my next guess. Maybe a bad coolant sensor. You might have a bad water pump as well. Make sure the fans are kicking on properly also. Check your radiator.

My tempature gauge keeps spiking in my 1996 jeep cherokee


The temp sending unit could be bad. They do not cost that much. Check the temp sending unit plug for corrosion. Other proublems could be wireing in the instrument cluster.

Normal coolant temp for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee city/highway V6


Your Jeep should have a 192 or 195 degree thermostat. Do u have to add coolant once in a while? If there is no coolant loss, no overheating problem, u shouldn't have to worry about it, it could be the temp. sending unit is not accurate. If it concerns u it would probably be worth it to remove the thermostat, check the temp rating on it(it should be stamped on it). Replace w/ a new one, and see what it indicates for temp then. Good luck, let me know what u find Curt

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine temg gauge not working


If you changed the coolant temperature sensor and it had a 5 volt ref signal to it then you replaced the wrong part. You need to replace the coolant temperature sending unit.  The coolant temp "sensor" is an input to the ECM for your fuel injection system. The coolant temp "sending unit" is for coolant temp reading at the gauge, It is an NTC switch (negative temperature coefficient) which means as temp increases/resistance decreases.
