Check that the radiator fan is switching on and off regularly when the car is idling stationary and hot. If not then there could be a fault with the fan or thermoswitch. Make sure the radiator is not becoming clogged with insects/leaves/small children. Dont use tap water in the coolant, it can coat the waterways with limescale reducing cooling efficiency. Use de-ionized. Or suspect the thermostat, they are quite cheap so rather than gettting it out and testing it on the stove in a pan of hot water just replace it with a new one. Make sure there isn't an airlock in the heater matrix, put the heating on full and make sure it's blowing nice and warm. Of course it could just be a fault with the temp. gauge or sender, you'd need to remove the sender and place it in some nearly boiling water and look at the gauge. Good luck.

Temp. gauge don't move past half on 1996 VW Jetta


Sounds normal. If the gauge moved further over, it would indicate an overheating problem, wouldn't it? Check that engine is at normal operating temperature after it warms up. If it is running too cold, your thermostat might be stuck open.

Is it normal for the temperature gauge to be at the M in normal on the dash for a 92 ford explorer sport?


Runing at the middle of the temp gauge is normal, If a vehicles temp gauge needle goes into the red zone on the gauge or into the hot zone as far as the needle will go .then you start worrying. Middle position is (NormaL for most (Vehicles) You have nothing to worry about.

Be sure the fan belt is not slipping and if it is tight then you might want to change the temp. sw. also check the wire to the temp sw. and make sure it is not shorting out on the engine. In addition, the gauge maybe miss reading but it don't sound likely from your post.

The thermostat may be wearing out. A thermostat controls the engine temperature to keep it at a consistent temperature, The other fan will probably turn on if you turn on your Air Conditioner.

I have a 1994 325i conv. the temp gauge cycles between normal operating temp and overheating as i'm driving.a few minutes in each range.could it be the radiator.blocked passages? is this common to older...


my 528i does, or did the same thing. Overheating is bad for those aluminum cylinder heads. 1st, replace the coolant. Then check to see if the electric cooling fans work, or cycle on, they most certainly would have to cycle on when the temp gauge is in the red zone.
1st thing most people do is replace the thermostat. However, if the temp goes from overheating to not overheating in less than a minute, the thermostat is working. The key thing to look for is why did it get to the red zone in the first place.

Please can you help why only after about a mile the engine is red hot but temp gauge is only showing middle. is this normal. YEAR 2001 WITH SERVICE HISTORY ONLY HAD SIX MONTH.


When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.
