"Run the engine, find the coolant temperature sensor disconnect it if the 260 still showing."
1. Whats does it indicate if after disconnecting the temperature sensor it remains at 260 degrees?
2. I assume if the temperature gauge indicated a cold reading after disconnection, it would show the sensor is working properly?
3. What problem is indicated if after sitting in the garage all night, the temperature gauge is pegged at 260 degrees, and the car is dead cold?
The gauge is erratic. It is not always at 260 degrees. It flucuates from normal to hot infrequently. This problem was caused by the tech who replaced my water pump and I cannot understand their having any difficulty correcting it. Thanks
