Would a bad thermostat cause check engine light to come on in a 2007 crown vic?

A defective thermostat can cause the engine to overheat. It can also cause the engine to not reach full operating temperature if the thermostat is stuck open. It is possible this could set the check engine light.


What would cause the engine not to reach normal operating temperature?

Answerno thermostat but only temporarily.A thermostat functions to regulate the flow of water between the engine and radiator.On an average outside temperature day (75 degrees), "no thermostat" would result in (1) the engine not reaching operating temperature in the normal engine warm up cycle time and (2) much later in the cycle the engine would overheat caused by the water not remaining in the radiator long enough to cool down. More extreme outside temperatures would impact the previous results.No thermostat or a defective thermostat that is stuck open. Also could be a deffective coolant temprature sensor. Or air bubble aroune the sensor on some cars.


Would a knock sensor cause the engine to run rich?

No it will not.


What would cause the temp gauge to not work on a 93 Ford Taurus Station Wagon?

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

Driving through flood water would cause the ignition to fail and stall the engine.


Can a thermostat cause a vehicle to stall?

The thermostat control engine temperature. If it fails the engine can run hot or cold - that would happen long before over-heating caused the engine to stall.

Your 2002 Bonneville runs steady at 200 degrees is that normal?

this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor. this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor.

My temp gaugebmw 318 e46 rises for no reason can anyone help already replaced the thermo sensor?

Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat. A sticking thermostat can cause temperature swings and potentially overheat the engine. BTW, BMW engines tend to have serious problems when they overheat. Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.


What would cause car temperature to rise when stopped but drop when moving or when engine is revved?

The thermostat is failing.

Your truck idles fine but as soon as you hit the throttle it floods it self out what would cause this?

Have you tried replacing the o2 sensor? Perhaps the thermostat as well. My 94 has 94000 miles. My O2 sensor was bad causing the engine to run too lean......sounded like it was choking itself out. Also, my thermostat needed replaced and that too helped it run better.
