Please help...fluctuating temp gauge...
Last week my 96 Explorer began making a noise as I went to work. I
wasn't sure what it was, so I left it with a nearby Goodyear shop to
check it out.
They said my water pump was about to fail...the bearings were shot. I
let them replace it and the noise went away.
However, now whenever I drive it my temp gauge fluctuates.
It never did this before, in all the 3+ years I've owned it, and only
started after the work was done.
When I contacted the shop about it, they said the thermostat needed to
be changed so both would work more compatably.
I agreed to this, but the gauge still drifts.
Despite being unnerving, it hasn't gone to either extreme on the dial.
Can anyone share some input on what might be causing this?
Should I be worried that I'm driving in unsafe conditions?
If I need to have it checked out again, I will definitely not go back to
the exact same shop that performed the work.
They left me with a strong feeling of doubt regarding their
Thank you for any help you can provide, and best wishes.
