I have a 2004 sprinter
. It's 30 degrees outside, and my engine temperature gauge says it running much hotter than normal with the cooling fan running. I checked the coolant
reservoir ,and when I took off the radiator cap there wasn't much pressure. And the coolant was only warm not hot which makes me wonder if there is a faulty sensor that operates the temp gauge?
JA: Have you checked the connectors on the sensor itself? It's important that they not be loose or corroded.
Customer: Where do I find them
JA: Are you fixing your Sprinter yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tried calling my shop, but they can't see it until Tuesday . I'm suppose to be leaving on a road trip Sunday. I've haven't tried anything yet, other than trying to figure out what's going on, and speaking with you. I suspect that the sensors are on the entry of the engine just past the radiator hose.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Probably, but I can't think of what it might be
