View Full Version : Just Changed Water Pump and Now ...

My water had just gone out earlier this week so I replaced the whole thing not just the gasket. The day after I didn't have any problems but now I noticed that my temp guage wasn't going up and that my fans are coming on as soon as I start the car. I still get heat and cold air from my vents and the coolant is flowing through the hoses what else would cause this problem?

faulty temperature sensor or faulty thermostat

I just did the LIM repair a little while ago and put in a 180* T-Stat so where is the temp sensor located?

Sensor is almost right on top of the stat, I belive.
Make sure there is no air in the system, there is a coolant bleeder on the top of the engine by the front fuel rail.

Yea I did all that, the problem just went away, I went out and bought the new sensor and then the fans turned off and everything works fine again ... hmm maybe the GA is finally looking out for me lol.
