How does the temp gage in a 97 Saturn SW1 connect to the thermostat?

The thermostat opens and lets the water start circulating through the radiator at about 190 deg. There is a sending unit in the block that sends the tenperature of the coolant to the temp gauge.

There is usually an ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor and a CTS (coolant temp sensor) located around the thermostat housing mounted in the intake. One sends coolant temp to the guage, the other sends temp to computer.

I would suspect the thermostat is stuck open. Replace the thermostat.

There is a sensor located between exhaust manifold #1 and #3 (drivers side). This sensor controls the temp gage in a cars interior.

The first thing is you will find that you have no heat or defroster. The temp Gage will rise, but the radiator will not overhead. You will also get the radiator fan to kick in sensing the block temperature. You can carefully and slowing open the radiator and the water may either be cold or Luke warm, but your temp Gage is on the hot mark. The thermostat seems to be a real weak link and is connected by (3) hoses, if it is closed than no circulation occurs.

Most likely the thermostat spring is weak, or the thermostat is sticking, causing the thermostat to open too early and stay open too long. This will cause water to circulate to the radiator, causing the temperature of the cooling water to fall below the target temperature, and so the temp guage falls. then eventually the thermostat closes some, and the temp starts to rise again (and so on)

Make sure you have the correct thermostat in there, if it is set too high you will get that bouncing. The thermostat is set to open at a certain temperature and allow the coolant to exchange with what is in the radiator. Under normal conditions you will notice a rise and fall of the temp gage as the coolant reaches max temp then lowers after the exchange. An overly sensitive sensor or an aftermarket gage set up will exaggerate it. I would not worry too much since it is a good indication that your cooling system is working well, the coolant in the radiator certainly seems to be cooling down enough to cause a big swing in temp. Check on that thermostat though as it may be letting the coolant get too hot before releasing it.

the 1028 is trouble code for thermostat low temp check temp gauge for low temp replace thermostat

1 temp sensor is under the spark plugs by the dipstick, cylinder head temp 1 temp sensor is in the thermostat housing 1 temp switch is beside the temp sensor in the thermostat housing

You have a cooling system problem, most likely a stuck thermostat. The thermostats have been a problem in the Mountaineer/Explorer.

i change the thermostat and the temp switch but still not working

The engine temp sensor is on the front of the engine, next to the thermostat housing.The engine temp sensor is on the front of the engine, next to the thermostat housing.
