Why is my temperature gage showing the vehiclen overheating?
Have 99 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0L. Replaced
thermostat, water pump, temperature
sensor, flushed radiator. Venicle been
sittinh for two days when you start the gage
is past hot. No smells, steam, or leaks....
After what you have said if you start a vehicle and the gauge is "already stuck" at overheated, then the gauge is broken.
The first thing I would do is to disconnect the wire at the temp sender and see if it goes to cold. Usually, a shorted temp sender wire will show "over hot". Could the wire have been pinched? It's very rare for the indicator to fail.
Thank you for your post we did try disconnecting the wire but we still have the same problem. I am guess the indicator has failed.
My temperature gage is totally the apposite is always very low what should i do to fix
