Temperature gauge

Post by juSTZY on Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:05 am

Hey guys got myself into a weird situation. I just finished my r154 swap a week ago and notice my temp gauge rising when I drive. It fluctuates from the mid to almost hot back to mid and then to red. This happens when down shifting and accelerating out of turn, sometimes when I change gears. I know the auto trans did have two coolant lines. Is there a sensor that detects the temp from the trans? Or is it something serious. Radiator has no leaks, no smoke from the exhaust, etc.

Check your grounds. I've seen cars that had temp gauges rise and fall with engine revs. Always ends up being a bad or missing ground

No separate lines for temp from the transmission. The gauge sender is in the thermostat housing IIRC.

Figured it out. It was indeed bad grounding
