Check your thermostat, if it is stuck open the coolant wont stay inside the engine long enough to warm up properly, or perhaps it has been removed completely some people do this when they have radiator trouble thinking it will help.
temperature gauge not working can be caused by a bad temp sensor in engine, a bad gauge in dash, or a bad fuse
Coolant Temperature Sensor
because the engine in that car does not cool down
Check the temperature sensor.
mechanical engine trouble. its about to blow up.
no you need to replace temperature sinding unit
Engine is overheating, faulty gauge, faulty temp sensor......
The thermometer that reads your engine temperature, I presume, is damaged or broken. Without the gauge to tell your fan how hot your engine is it will keep running as a 'better be safe then sorry' feature.
The temperature sensor is malfunctioning
Most likely the sensor in the motor.
No, low coolant would cause the opposite.
If you temperature gauge is going up and down then you may have a problem with your sensor. You should take your car to a professional to ensure that you don't overheat your car.
The thermostat controls engine coolant temperature at a predetermined degree. If the stat is stuck open you would not see the temp gauge rise to normal and the heat coming out of your heater would be warm at best. This condition would not damage your engine. If the stat is stuck closed you would see more violent results such as temp gauge pegging hot and pinging noises coming from engine. This condition could and probably would cause serious damage to engine in a very short time.
Could be lots of things. You should have it checked for codes. The temp gauge problem would make me think of a possible temp sensor problem. It should be located near the thermostat housing.
Maybe the temp gauge works, but there is a separate coolant temperature sensor for the engine control system, which includes the fans. Check it out.
Could be your thermostat or your anti-freeze
yes... because you gonna loose water..
A low coolant level could cause the temp gauge not to read correctly. A faulty temp gauge sending unit could also be the cause. The coolant leak, you would have to find the source of the leak to determine the cause.
The first thing that I would check is the wiring and the temp sensor @ the engine. Sorry but I do not know where the sensor is located on the engine. Usually they are not too hard to locate. i would replace temperature sender usual located near front of engine near thermostat housing
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.
Bad Sender. Bad guage.
A normal temperature reading for a vehicle would be between 180-192 degrees F. Temps of 200 and higher can damage an engine.
One sensor would be for your engine temperature gauge and the other sensor for the OBD II engine management system
The gauge should be showing a minimum 195 with engine warmed up. I would start with replacing the thermostat.
Why would the temperature gauge indicate an overheated condition when the engine is not hot. It could be the gauge in the instrument panel. Unlikey however. More likely it is a bad coolant temperature sensor or the wiring from the sensor back to the instrument panel. Inspect the wiring and replace the coolant sensor. The sensor is not too expensive.
