2007 Ford Taurus Question: location temperature gauge
Answer #1patrick mannion from Greg Solow's Engine Room, December 30, 2010, 21:12Master
All fluids could be correct but if the cooling system thermostat or radiator cooling fan is not operating at the right time the vehicle could over heat. The temperature gauge I believe receives its input to the instrument cluster from the powertrain control module via a CAN network. It uses a temperature sensor in the engines cooling system to control air/fuel mixture. If that sensor fails the Check Engine Light would be on. What should be simple may be complex, find a Ford specialist in your area may need Ford enhanced scan tool to diagnose system.
