Your temparature gauge may be working in a faulty manner. Rather than fixing temperature gauge I would recommend using http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

It is a nice simple software which monitors your laptop temp on a regular basis.

Bad ECM, bad wire from the ECM to the instrument panel, and a bad motor for the temp gauge.

Heater blows cold air and the temperature guage reads cold after driving for 20 minutes


Best case scenario is your thermostat is stuck open. When this happens the engine will take a long time to warm up and will never get up to full temp. Worst case could be a serious problem such as a blown head gasket. If there is no coolent in the engine the temp gauge will not register either.

My honda sounds like it needs to shift again and the heat gauge never raises


Could be a faulty thermostat or a faulty temp sensor.
As long as the computer sees the engine temp is cold it will restrict power to protect the engine.
You would need to know if the engine is getting up to normal temp.
The engine can be "cold" and still produce some heat thru the heater.

I just bought a 2000 4x4 Dodge Durango. The temperature gauge reads properly at about half way, but the heat blows air that is not really hot even though I have the heat at maximum warm. What is the...


try feeling your heater hoses going from the engine to the heater core. they should be hot at operating temperature. If one is hotter than the other noticably it would indicate a restriction in the core most likely. A partially stuck thermostat could also cause loss of heat but you say the temp is normal. Start with checking hose temperature if they are both on the cool side compared to the radiator hose then further diagnostics are necessary. hope this helps. Keep in touch.

Oven temp not correct


One thing you should know about a gas oven is that they do not keep a constant tempature like an electric oven does. So going by a tempature gauge in the oven can fool you. The way a gas oven works is by "average" tempature. In other words if you take the highest and lowest tempature readings and average them out you will get the actual tempature. For example let's say that you set the oven to 350. Well first it will take about 10 to 15 minutes for the oven to properly pre-heat. Once it is preheated you can listen to the gas burner and watch a tempature gauge(flook meter is best). When the gas burner shuts off the oven tempature will continue to rise. When the oven tempature stops rising then you will take that reading. Then wait for the oven burner to come back on again and watch the tempature gauge. When the tempature gets to it's lowest point and stops then take that reading. Do this several times and then take all the tempature readings and add them together then divide that number by the number of readings you took and that will give you the actual tempature. Within 5 degrees is great but anything over 10 degrees can affect your cooking. This will give you an idea if your oven is out of calibration or not.

There is a calibration procedure. The instuctions are located in the owners manual and can be found here http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF

Just go to the "Thermostat Adjustment" section for the proper calibration procedure.

My temp gauge reads only a quarter hot.when i tow a trailer or use my air my temp goes past half and my engine light comes on.


I would supect you actually have two problems going on here. First off it sounds like your guage is reading inaccuratly. When it is reading at one quarter it probably should be at the half way point. This is the normal operating range. The most likely cause is the temp sensor for the guage. When you pull a trailer and engine gets under a load the tempature sounds like its going up too high. Your engine light comes on because it uses a different sensor and is registering accurate tempature. I would start by comparing actual tempature of engine with what the guage reads, this can be done with a scanner or a heat gun pointed at the thermostat housing. I believe you will find a faulty sensor or possibly an outside chance of a bad guage.(but doubt it!)Once that is straightned out you will have to look at why is the engine getting too warm under load. I would start with radiator flow,A ristricted radiator either internally or externally will cause this. Good luck!

Oven jjw9527aab fan runs continuously even when cool and now shows F2 alarm message


The F2 error code is due to the temp sensor is registering a tempature over 600 degrees. So the reason why the convection fan is continously running is because the ERC thinks the oven is overheated and is trying to cool it down. It is probably a bad tempature sensor or oven relay board. You will need to test the tempature sensor with an OHM meter. They usually will read 1000-1100 OHMS at room tempature. If you get an open read or a incorrect OHM reading then I would replace the tempature sensor otherwise replace the power relay board if the temp sensor is reading correct. But try unplugging the power to the oven for over 10 minutes first and then plug it back in. This will reset the ERC and might fix the problem.

Temperature Gauge Always On Cold


As long as your gauge is still moving up, there's no real problem. You have heat coming from the heater. It's only a problem if it's getting too hot. What's going on is that you don't let the vehicle run long enough, and it's so cold outside that the engine stays cold. It raises in temp when your stopped because there's no airflow through the radiator. The thermostat just heats up the engine block, and won't change the reading on the gauge. When this goes bad your car will overheat in just a few miles.
