View Full Version : Erractic Meter

When I drive my car. My coolant temperature meter acts erractic. Sometimes it will read up to the middle, which is normal. But lately, its been fluctuating. It will slowly rise to the middle and then all of a sudden it will go allllll the way down. Sometimes it goes back up again...but it eventually falls back down and sometimes stays down. Sometimes the weather here gets cold (for california that is) but my car still shouldnt act stupid. Can someone tell me whats wrong with it? Should I be worried?

Probably your coolant sensor. ESC sells them pretty cheap.

Truuuuust me, you will KNOW when its that t-state.

Its your coolant sensor buddy! Dont worry - its so simple, so easy.

Get a green sensor on ECS for about 8 bucks and then use the write up on AW to sew it into your car!

Fun and simple![up] [:D]
