Volkswagen Pointer I


Do you get hot air from the If so, I’d suspect a problem the gauge. They are electromechanical with heating wire around a bimetallic strip. As the heats the strip, it bends and on the pointer. There are two adjustments on the One sets the pointer’s position, and the one sets the range from to low by varying the tension on the pointer.

I had a problem with the fuel on my ’72 Challenger. It appears the insulator material breaks and reduces the heating effect on the strip. I adjusted the pointer times, and each time it read full for about two then go right back to 7/8 tank when it was full.

I would suggest first a thermometer in the neck of the radiator to the coolant temperature. If it is indeed as I suspect, you can try adjusting the gauge. The cause very little so another possibility would be to the circuit by adding a resistor in to the sensor.

If your fuel also reads low, the gauge voltage regulator. a small three-terminal metal box into the back of the dash circuit board. It has a bimeallic that cycles on and off like a flasher. It turns battery on and off so over time, its output 5 volts. From experience I can you, it is not possible to connect the to a 5 volt power supply so you can the adjustments with the gauge from the dash. The constant 5 will heat the strip too then it will read too low put back in the dash. The built in switches the 12 volts on for only 40 percent of the time, then to 0 volts the rest of the time. The

wire heats up very and cools down slowly. You can see yourself. When you turn the switch on, the fuel and temperature go up very quickly. When you the switch off, it takes a while for the gauges to go down.

The temperature gauge is easier to than the fuel gauge if you to try. The fuel gauge read correctly at empty and The temperature gauge spends all its in one position so it only has to read when the engine is warm.

Of this all assumes the coolant really is around 180 — 190 at the top of the radiator. If it is cooler than there’s only two things I can of, and both are unlikely. The burnng absolutely will result in that must be removed. If timing is severely retarded, the process will be completed the fuel leaves the cylinders. One engines with thin exhaust manifolds, they actually glow orange the excessive heat. The engine not produce its full normal either.

The other possibility is the heater is acting as a really efficient This could explain why the radiator with cardboard help. Pinch one of the heater then watch to see if the coolant goes up. If it does, add a restriction to one of the This would be weird, and never heard of this although I had the opposite problem my ’88 Grand Caravan in the It ran too hot at anything above 60 degrees and 60 mph due to and crumbling cooling fins on the Running the front and rear on the hottest settings and medium fan kept the engine cool, so shows how efficient the two heater are at removing heat from the

You can also try pinching the upper hose for a few minutes. If the temperature up, the thermostat is not closing.
