Water Temperature / Oil Temperature Meter Gauge

A Water Temperature Gauge allows you to monitor your vehicle's engine coolant temperature to ensure it does not overheat, potentially causing major engine damage. Your vehicle’s coolant system is designed to keep the engine at a constant temperature.

 

The oil temperature is a vital part to keeping your engine running smoothly. The oil temperature should be a few degrees warmer than the coolant. If the oil temperature is too high, problems can arise. When you first start your vehicle on cold mornings, let the car idle for about five minutes until the oil gets a chance to warm up. This way, your engine will run more efficiently and live much longer. The oil temperature sensor is an important piece to know when your oil is warmed up when working properly.

 

Propel levels and temperature of transmission oil, also called transmission fluid, are vital to your car's transmission working properly. This indicator light is warning you that the transmission fluid's temperature too high, which can lead to transmission failure. Transmission failures are one of a vehicle owner's worst nightmares, as they are notoriously expensive to repair, and one of the things mostly to damage your transmission is overheating.
