While a new bad t-stat is a possibility, it's a fairly uncommon situation. I have a 95 suburban 5. . I would consider 220 normal for pulling a load uphill, but not around town at slow speeds. I was told it was 93 or 94 or 95 degrees, I can't remember which. For every pound of pressure, the boiling point is raised 2 degrees.
Hold the black lead from the multimeter on one post of the switch and the red lead on the other. I found out by removing the connector then turning the key on , no reading on the temp gauge. I have a 1992 Fleetwood motorhome with the Chevy 454 engine, and my temperature gauge does not work at all. Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil. This sender is specific to a certain heat range.
Replaced the fuel pressure regulator 2 years ago because when the truck has been driven and the engine is hot when you shut it off if you wait more than 15 to 20min to start it cranks over like its flooded out always starts but starts hard. There are 2 senders one on each side of engine i just replaced both last year, i think they were around 15 dollars each good luck, i have never changed my thermosts do you know what temp goes in there, i have had it for 5 years. It turns just fine but isn't pushing coolant like it should. If you can get clouds of stuff coming out of the radiator, you know that it's not been working effectively. All it would take is one grain of sand at every fillup to add up to a great big pile of crud. For this reason, if you suspect that your coolant temperature sensor is having an issue, have the vehicle inspected by a professional technician from YourMechanic. I have replaced the water pump, clutch fan and thermostat because my temp runs over 210.
. They cannot tell me if this universal gauge kit on amazon will fit this engine. I do not see and cannot find the location of the fuel filter! I was already at work. There is a heat riser that runs inside the intake manifold and these can crack and it feeds fire to the intake side. From your description, the water pump is circulating the coolant heater flow. Also do you know where I can purchase one and also the part number? So my simple Dum Question is, can I install an after market Temp gauge like the much older models, 1 ea or do I have to install 2ea to compensate for the other. Do not assume that since the water pump doesn't leak it is fine.
Have they been checked to see if one or both are collapsed? It could even be the injectors 2 or timing. Where will I find the sending unit and is there a specific temperature range I should purchase. I'm no mechanic but I'd like to see if I can fix the problem without having to take it to one. Unfortunately, looking into the radiator for swirling coolant won't work because it comes in at an angle. I am the original owner of a 1982 CrossCountry by Sportscoach on a 1981 P30 chassis with a 454 Chevy V8.
I see an electric sender unit for something on left cylinder bank,midway back, above spark plug line. You can place a droplight behind the radiator and look through the front to see if there's light coming through. In a pressurized system, it boils at a much higher temperature. I'd also check the exhaust temps all along the exhaust pipe. That means if you have a 15 lb radiator cap, water will boil at 242 degrees, so at 220 degrees, you are well within the safe range.
Luther 7-12-07 Hi Michael, Thanks for responding. Thanks Johnny R Baca 8-15-17 Howdy, fellow 454cid engine owners. Just take the lines off where they hook into the oil filter adapter just above the oil filter and screew the oil line fittings out of the housing. My temperature gauge does not rise above 100 degrees while running. You just have to buy it by the gallon.
It's just good common sense to make sure you won't be looking for shop out in the middle nowhere for a fix. Come to find out that the coolant temp. If so, airflow through the radiator will not be happening. You won't have the normal pressure and flow in the system, especially due to the way the hoses and radiator are routed in the motorhome. It may look like a carburetor but it has an injector mounted inside the housing.
With that many miles, if the original water pump, I'd suspect it too. We went through similar problems with my sons truck it's 95 gmc although it's 350. Besides the fuel issues I had to replace the intake manifold gasket cause it was leaking antifreeze. The first thing you need to do is buy that cheap laser temp probe. Jeff remind me what year it is. Since I can't see down there, I'll be doing it by feel.
