Need help with cooling system

Ok so here is my problem my 95 V6 mustang temperature gauge has been acting up recently. When I drive in town under normal driving conditions the temperature gauge would stay in the middle . as soon as i would come to a complete stop it just jumps inbetween the M and the A of the temp gauge . It also does this when I accelerate hard,but as I start to drive normal agian it slowly moves back to normal. ok now If get on the highway and i am driving at a constant speed the temp gauge needle starts to slowly move down inbetween the O and R .
I have changed my water pump and thermostat and it still does it. Help please

Re: Need help with cooling system

have you checked to make sure your fan is turning on when it reaches operating temperature?

i would buy a gauge to make SURE the temps are raising/lowering it might just be the stock POS gauge.

Re: Need help with cooling system

its probably not the guage, maybe the sending unit though :dunno:


Id make sure the fans coming on, if it is... take it to a mechanic to check the temp sending unit.

Re: Need help with cooling system

Mine jumps down like that while cruising, I could probably change my fan settings to make it stay off a little bit longer and run a bit warmer. It is good advice to get a gauge that actually reads correctly however.

Re: Need help with cooling system

Sounds like the same exact problems that I am currently undergoing with my mustang. I have changed my thermostat as well and still have these problems. Have you figured anythign out yet? Being that this is a very old thread?
