Puma Dodgy Temp Sender?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

My temp gauge is reading beyond the red mark even when cold on my 97 1.7 Puma.

I recently changed the heater control valve. The fan comes on after 15-20 mins when running stationary, the coolant isn't bubbling excessively, the engine doesn't appear to be overheating and the heater works as it should. Bled the coolant. No difference to the needle under any conditions. As soon as the key is in position 2 (before engine starts) it heads off past the red in about 2 seconds.

I was thinking this could be the temp sender, can anyone tell me how to replace the sender.

Thanks for any help.

temp sender goosed easy job little brass sender with one round plug on it and a green collar

Thanks for that reply its very helpful mate. Can you tell me the location? I've been told it is under the coil pack (although I think they meant the sensor not the sender) or screwed into the block somewhere. There may be a difference between the pre and post 1999 Pumas.

cheers

Coolant is getting hot, sender is the problem not engine temp.
