I just bought a 94 explorer. The temp gauge barely rises. It does move slightly, then it decreases to about nothing, then rises again. The heater works outstanding, coolant looks great. Any Input? Thermostat? Gauge? thanks
I checked the wire at the sending unit, it appears to be attached and in good shape. Is there a way that I can take the wire off the sender, ground it to the block and then check the gauge to make sure its working? Will the guge move if I do that?
I changed the thermostat and sender today. Tough job without the right tools. But, the gauge now reads correctly in the normal operating range.
I did have to take the serpentine belt off and loosen a bracket that hold the air conditioner plumbing. I did obtain a flexible shaft ratchet that made things much easier. Thanks for all the help.
