Temp gage
« on: December 29, 2015, 05:59:41 AM »

Quick question..

My temperature gage would only slightly rise, it would get close to the bottom line. So, I replaced the temperature sender and it now starts at the bottom line but will peg out at the top after a few minutes of running. I figured maybe it is running hot so I replaced the thermostat and put fresh (demineralized) water in and it is still doing the same thing. The fan is turning and it isn't running like it's over heating. There isn't any oil in the water or vice versa.

The bolt head on the new temp sender (beck and arnley) was smaller than the one I replaced. Is it likely that I put the wrong sender in? Or could I have just gotten a faulty one?

Pictures mean a lot because you did not mention
Engine year
Engine size
Vehicle year
There are multiple sensors out there for different engines that have various readings. Plus you have the euro version and things are all ready different.

But one item remains constant

The most common problem with Japanese vehicles are grounds. Yes grounds. Almost every issue known to Suzuki and Toyota start with cleaning grounds and making sure the isolated parts are bonded (i.e. Firewall to battery, frame to firewall, distributor housing to firewall, t-stat area to ground to read sensors better)
