IT MAY BE YOUR RADIATOR AS THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM, WATER PRESSURE DOESN'T CONTROL TEMPERATURE. THE TEMPERATURE IS REGULATED BY HOW WELL THE RADIATOR COOLS THE WATER COMING FROM THE MOTOR,WATER PRESSURE IS REGULATED BY SPEED OF THE MOTOR, CHECK WWATER PUMP AS WELL

Temperature gauge cold then back to normal


You have to make sure the thermostat is working properly and is the correct one. Idle the vehicle for about 20 minutes and then feel the upper radiator hose. It should be hot to the touch. Drive the vehicle and when the temp gauge falls to 'cold' stop and feel it again. If it is much cooler to the touch than before the thermostat is defective or wrong.

Raidator is full and temp gauge is in the middle, but no heat


air in the system , you have to get the blocked air out.. run engine with the water cap OFF the water level will start to drop keep on filling , it takes about 5 mins ,its a common fault ,to help with further problem take out thermostate if takeing off cap does not do it, may as well take out thermostate first and take off cap as well.

Temp gauge go real high as soon as I start driving than gos back down is that over heating


have your water thermostat checked for the correct heat range, its normal for a temp gage to raise then drop as the thermostat opens and closes ,, thats its job,, if you have replaced it before, it could be a higher rating than before

Pressure of the engine(oil sign)grand cheroke 2000


When the engine is cold, the oil pressure will be higher. It drops as the engine warms up and heats up the oil. If the pressure gauge gives readings that seem to be wrong, it's possible that the oil pressure sending unit is defective, and should be replaced. If the difference you are seeing in the gauge is due to variation in engine and outside temperatures, the it's normal, and don't be concerned.

It could be an air leak. Check for bleed valves in the cooling system on top of the engine.

Old hoses could have collapsed internally. Replace radiator hoses.

Check connection to temperature sender- could be gauge.

HELP 86 GL-10 /getting hot


This can be a slipping belt, a worn out water pump, a damage fan or the worst of all a burnt cylinder head gasket. Turbos running at high pressures tend to blow the cylinder head gaskets. Also check the radiator.
