Was the gauge doing that before you replaced the sensor ?
What happens if you leave the sensor disconnected ?
And did you replace the right one ? There should be two, one for the gauge and one for the computer.

SOURCE: coolant temperature sensor location for 1999 Dodge Durango

The sensor is right next to the heater hose outlet on the front passenger side of intake manifold. It is very small with an oval shaped connector going to it. I have the same engine.

There is a temperature sensor likely to be on your radiator. Make sure the connection is plugged in. Sometimes un-plugging and plugging it back will correct the issue. If not, you'll have to have some check if the sensor is faultly or if the electric wire is fault. You can check your fuse box. I don't think it's a fuse because other things on your instrument cluster would also not work.

Unless the car is overheating you probably just have a bad temperature sensor probably located on the intake manifold....

You will need to change your thermostat as it is stuck and is not responding correctly to temperature changes. Have your mechanic change the thermo, do a flush of the system and all should be good again.

Get it scanned again. If you bought cheaper ones at the parts store instead of oem ones from the dealer you are probably going to be doing them again. The upstream and down stream 02 sensors communicate with each other so it could be the upstream sensors even though it says downstream. I ran into this problem myself.

My needle for my temperature gauge is not workin it points down tha hole time and i replaced the sensor what else could it be


First off you need to make sure you replaced the right sensor alot of vehicles are equipped with two coolant sensors on feeds the computer information and the other sensor registers temperature on your gauge so make sure you replaced the right one.If you did replace the right one then possibilities are a break in the wire from the coolant sensor to the temperature gauge on your dash also could be your temperature gauge on your dash could be faulty.

In my chevy impala i have no hot air comming out of the vents. The temperture gage reads at about half and then will fluctuate. What could be the problem?


Check your coolant level. When the level goes down, the heater is usually the first unit to show the lack of coolant (no heat). As the coolant decreases, eventually the temperature sensor is intermittently 'out of the water' and can't indicate water temperature, causing the fluctuation. If your coolant is low, find and repair the leak.

I don't think you do any thing wrong. I suspect the coolant temperature has a loosed connection, or it is bad. If you are certain that your coolant temperature sensor is good then remove the thermostat to run for 2 days to see the temp reading gauge is normal then buy a new one to put it back. Good Luck.
