Most likely a bad sensor/relay
We replaced the temperature gauge in my 1991 Chevy blazer what is the normal operating temp?
210 to 220 is a safe range.
195 degrees F
on the side of the radiator
1990 Chevrolet Lumina temperature sender is located on the back side of the thermostat housing. The sender has a wire that goes to the temperature gauge.
220 is not excessive
Bad temperature sending unit? Bad gauge?
you can buy the gauge at any auto store or even walmart and there are directions with the gauge.
I believe they should run at abt. 200-210 with a 195 thermostat . It will also depend on what engine you have. 4.3 liters run on the gauge right at 200
bad temp sender usually. Bad gauge rarely.
Buy a new Speedometer cluster. The external Temp gauge is extremely rare
get a new temperature sensor.
what should my dash gauge read for normal opp temp on my 97 Chevy 5.7 liter vortec
seriously? it tells you what temperature you engine coolant/antifreeze is. that is how your gauge on the dash knows what your temperature is at.
who should i see about a recall on 2005 chevy trailblazer for faulty fuel gauge and not working speed gauge who can i call about this for a recall was bought used
Mine does not. Perhaps you a low on coolant.
In my experience with my Chevy it was a ground wire
Yes it can depending on driving conditions.
The temp gauge should read ambient temp when cold and top off at 200 degrees F when fully warmed up.
Check the sending unit between the left first 2 spark plugs. Ground the wire with key on (gauge should peg full hot). If it does change the sending unit.
Usually around 220.
The 1999 Cadillac normal coolant temperature gauge reading should be 180 degrees. A 195 degrees thermostat could be used, causing the temperature gauge to read 195.
usually on the left of the engine between the first two spark plugs
