2001 Mercury Sable: the temperature sensor, but the engine temp gauge

Resolved Question:

I have a 2001 Mercury Sable LS. I just replaced the temperature sensor, but the engine temp gauge just stays below C. What is the problem and can I troubleshoot on my own?

Hi, welcome to my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be answering your question.


The most likely cause of this is a stuck open thermostat replace the thermostat. If you had replaced the temp sending unit which is different from the temp sensor and the thermostat is okay then it is a problem with the wiring and guage. Most of the time it is the thermostat.


I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.
