You either are very low on coolant or the engine thermostat may be stuck open. Remove the thermostat and check it.

These engines have a propensity to blow intake and head gaskets.

Look for coolant in the crankcase as well. It will show up as a milky white oil.

There is a battery light above the engine temperature gauge


The check engine light is a " picture " of an engine , just to the left of the engine temperature gauge


The engine is overheating. The check engine light is not on because you have no problem with the emissions system which this light monitors.


This is called the Temperature light or gauge


No , the CHECK " GAGE " light comes on if the gas gauge is at or near empty , the engine coolant temperature is HIGH , or the engine oil pressure is LOW




For a 2001 Ford Explorer : No , there is an engine temperature gauge Also , there is a " CHECK GAGE " light ( the light will come on if the engine coolant temperature is too high , the engine oil pressure is too low , or the fuel gauge indicates it is at or near empty )


It has a " check gage " light if the fuel gauge is at or near empty , the engine coolant temperature is high , or the engine oil pressure is low


If your engine light comes on and your temp gauge is lower then normal. listen for cooling fans. if they are also running chances are you need a new thermostat


If the check engine light is on a malfunction that is effecting the engine emission control system has been detected If the check gage light is on , either your engine coolant temperature is too high , your engine oil pressure is too low , or your gas gauge is at or near empty


When my check engine light comes on, it is caused by the temperature sensor not working. As soon as the light comes on, my temperature drops to cool. If the light goes out, the temp gauge returns to normal.


There is the ( low coolant ) warning light that is at the bottom of your gauge cluster between the engine temperature gauge and your tachometer


If your engine thermostat sticks open it will run cooler on your temperature gauge and you won't see the temperature gauge go up to the point where your engine thermostat opens and then the temperature gauge will show a drop in temperature , your check engine light will probably come on , your gas mileage will be less , the heat from your heater probably won't get as hot If the engine thermostat were to stick in the closed position your engine will overheat ( but there are several other causes for an engine to overheat )


On a 2002 Ford Ranger : The check " gage " light comes on if : The engine coolant temperature is TOO HIGH The engine oil pressure is TOO LOW or The fuel gauge is at or near empty


I was looking at the 2004 Ford Explorer Owner Guide and it has a picture of a instrument panel that shows a " check gage " light in the upper left corner by the engine coolant temperature gauge . The light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is high , the engine oil pressure is low , or ( the fuel gauge is at or near empty )


On a 1997 Ford Explorer : CHECK ENGINE is just to the left of the " C " on the engine coolant temperature gauge ( Helpfull )


Check engine light : Gauge cluster without tachometer ( under the engine oil pressure gauge ) Gauge cluster with tachometer ( just to the left of the battery voltage gauge )


The check gage light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is too high , the oil pressure is too low , or the gas gauge is at or near empty


depending on the specific vehicle and what condition it is in. 165-185, normally. generally, if the vehicle has a thermostat gauge it will be the center value on the gauge



On a 2000 Mercury Cougar : The warning light that looks like a can with an X through it , located between the engine coolant temperature gauge and the tachometer ( at the bottom of the gauge cluster ) is your ( LOW engine cooling system warning light )


We have no temperature gauge in our car. Didn't come equipped with one. It probably has a warning light that would illuminate if the engine was getting to hot.


Either your engine coolant temperature is too high , your oil pressure too low , or your gas gauge is near or at empty
