Say now, it is possible to dismantle the instrument cluster, and replace the gauge unit itself. Keep in mind that the price of a new one from a dealer may be steep! To put a mechanical gauge in may require drilling a hole in the firewall. Also, the computer may need to monitor the water temperature in order to function properly. If the temperature gauge is not reading, then I would suggest going to a parts store, such as Auto Zone, and getting an aftermarket temperature guage and hooking it up because there is no way to replace the factory gauge.

How do you locate and change the thermostat in a 2000 Buick Century?

I asked my mechanic about that and he said it was under the intake manifold. about 400 dollars to repair. On the other hand I was low on coolant, so I added coolant and it started warming up faster and the temperature gauge wasn't so high either. So I didn't have to repace thermostat. good luck I asked my mechanic about that and he said it was under the intake manifold. about 400 dollars to repair.

How does a fan switch work in a car?

The fan only runs when needed to help cool the engine. The engine coolant sensor or a separate engine temperature switch is used to monitor engine temperature. Extra cooling is not needed when an engine is first started, so the fan does not come on until that engine reaches normal operating temperature which is usually from 195 to 215°F. The fan will then cycle on and off as needed to maintain the coolant temperature. So the fan runs mostly at idle or low-speed when the engine is at normal picture.

What is causing huge smoke plumes on87 Corolla when engine is cold or warm this started very suddenly?

Check your temperature guage. Is the vehicle overheating? Are you losing coolant? Did you overfill your oil or do you have fluid leaking anywhere onto your exhaust? If you are using coolant or if its running hot, it is probably a head gasket issue.

When do you add coolant with the car started or not?

You should add coolant with the engine off and cool, top off the radiator and fill the coolant reservoir to the cool or cold level. When the system is hot or running it will be pressurized and will be dangerous to open. You can however add coolant to the overflow reservoir at any time.
