Just so, what causes high engine coolant temperature?
If the temperature gauge consistently shows the engine is warmer than normal, have your cooling system checked ASAP. There are many possible reasons that your engine is running hot, including low coolant levels, a clogged or closed thermostat, a failed head gasket or a water pump malfunction.
Likewise, what causes high oil temperature? Another common cause for high oil temperature indications with normal oil pressure is the use of too high a power setting at too slow an airspeed. This can happen during an extended performance climb at VX, best angle of climb airspeed.
Keeping this in view, how do I fix hot coolant temperature?
Place a cloth over the radiator cap to protect your hand, and tilt the cap away from you as it opens. Refill the cooled radiator with your spare coolant or water. Do not pour cold water into a still-hot radiator — it could cause the engine block to crack due to the sudden change in temperature.
Does the coolant temp sensor control the fan?
The sensor works by measuring the temperature that's being given off by the thermostat and/or the coolant itself. The temperature is then sent to the on-board control system. As the control system receives the temperature from the CTS, it may trigger the cooling fan to either shut off or turn on.
