Are you sure it is motor oil? It may very well be tranny fluid, check to make sure it is full and clean. The tranny coolers are internal in the radiator in automatics. If there is coolant in the tranny fluid it will look like milk, make sure you do not drive at all, till fixed and flushed

What is the normal temperature gauge reading for a 1999 Cadillac Catera?

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.

What does it mean when your coolant temperature gauge reads cold even when warm and the idle is high?

Low Coolant or faulty gauge

1998 transport over heating. when the temp gauge is normal heater is blowing hot when temp gauge gets hot heater blows cool replaced thermostate Why would it be over heating?

This would indicate that the system is low on coolant when the gauge is hot. Not enough coolant to service the heater core.

What would cause no circulation in radiator?

If the temp gauge reads normal and the engine is not overheating, the thermostat is doing its job. The thermostat maintains the coolant temp by opening and closing allowing the coolant to flow or not to flow. When it is closed the coolant doesn't circulate.

Engine temp gauge reads high but coolant temp is normal and oil is fine?

any make after 1997 will be susceptible to electrical issues when engine is normal. i wish they would have left the computer stuff out of vehicles. gauge is most likely electrically impaired.

Why does the temp gauge go all the way to hot and stays there for a short time then comes back to normal?

Low on coolant or a sticky thermostat, replace it.

How do you get the low coolant light to go off on a 2000 Buick Century with levels fine in radiator and overflow and temperature gauge only one mark above normal?

You may have a faulty coolant level sensor

Why is coolant light still on after having water pump changed out. 98 Malibu was leaking antifreeze but has stopped after water pump was replaced How do I get coolant light off?

probably the coolant level sensor... Does the temprature gauge go up to hot then down to normal?

If a coolant temp gauge is not working will it cause damage to your engine?

An inoperative temperature gauge will not alter how an engine runs, but the operator will not know if the water temperature has risen above normal without a properly working guage.

Why would water boil in your radiator but the temp gauge is at normal?

Because the temp gauge is not giving you the temperature of the water/steam in the radiator. You may have a bad head gasket or a cracked head causing the coolant to have that boiling effect.

Why does temperature gauge go up and down?

Probably low on coolant. Have coolant system checked for leaks.

The temperature light or gauge indicates the temperature of the?
