    Checked the coolant, oil and sensor, everything looks okay.

  • crubis Apr 14, 2009

    Thermostat was replaced two years ago, radiator one year ago, the problem started two days ago. Is it possible that temperature sensor is getting bad?

  • crubis Apr 14, 2009


    I'm at work, so I didn't get to pulling and disconnecting cables yet.

    I have no problem with horse power, but I think in the last four or so weeks my fan is working a little bit longer after I stop and turn off engine then before, but I could be wrong.

    Hmmm, thermostat ok or removed or opening incorrect?

  • Anonymous May 11, 2010

    Bit fast checking that. How is the fan doing?

    Intermittent electrical or still belt?

    How is the horse power? same?

O.K. STEVE ARINO THIS SHOULD BE A STUCK THERMOSTAT THE ANTIFREEZE COMES BACK TO THE RADIATOR THROUGH THE TOP HOSE SO IF IT IS STUCK THE COOLANT CAN'T GET BACK TO THE RADIATOR AND THE ENGINE IS HEATING UP SO THE FAN GOES ON THE ERADICT GAUGE BEHAVIOR IS ALSO FROM THIS WHEN YOU STEP ON THE GAS THE WATER PUMP IS ABLE TO PUSH COLDER COOLANT INTO THE ENGINE SAY THE GAUGE IS FEELING THE LOWER TEMPERATURE FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN IT GOES BACK UP TO HIGHER HOTTER THAN HELL GOOD LUCK!

connector may be loose at the temperature sensor. connector should be snug on the sensor. If necessary, bend the terminals carefully to make firm contact. If this does not solve the problem, you may want to replace the sensor. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

If it is not an instrumentation problem then you have to assume the coolant is heat cycling. It could be because the cooling fans are not coming on due to the temperature switch, fans or relay. This would explain why the temperature increases when you are stopped and decreases when you are accelerating and air is moving over the radiator.

Teampreature gauge not working


Sounds like you have installed a 'over-temperature switch' type sender unit- this type of sensor is only meant to control an over-temperature alarm indicator lamp that is either 'on' or 'off'.

The temperature gauge requires a 'variable resistance type' temperarure sensor to control the meter deflection.
When cold the temperature sensor is of high resistance, hence less meter deflection;
when hot temperature sensor is of low resistance, hence more meter deflection.

You need to procure a matching sensor to suit the type of gauge installed.

Is it possible you have connected to the temperature wrong temperature sensor? - most vehicles are fitted with both a gauge type (variable resistance) sensor to drive the temperature gauge, as well as a switch type (on or off) sensor to drive the overtemp indicator light.

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.

Onboard temp gauge


you need to go to the parts house and purchase an ambient temperature sensor. that is the sensor that tells the car what the outside temp. is. I hope that helps you out.

Erratic Dash Temperature Gauge Readings


assuming there is nothing wrong with the water pump, it may be the sending unit is going bad, or it could also be the thermostat going out. it is more likely that the t-stat is the problem as it is the erratic behaviour of the guage inside that is the concern.
