Having problems with your Ford Explorer Sport ?
I have a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport. I been having problems with my temperature gauge needle it just starts to move up and down rapidly then my check gauge light comes on. But it only does that when I'm pressing the gas. When i come to a stop the check gauge light comes off the the needle spots moving. How much am I looking at to fix the problem and what could it be??
Thats a tough one alota possibilities. best offer is a bad ground. take jumper cables and just use the negative side-go from the batt "-" to the engine and check the gauge. then go from the batt to the body or firewall and try that. if either fixes it then a ground strap rotted off and just replace it by adding and additional one. best of luck
