Engine hot turn ac off. heat gauge flatten out 160 fans stay on.


On my 2008 Chevy pickup, the temp gauge would show normal temp and all if a sudden would drop out down to 160 on dash. When this happened, the panel would show ENGINE HOT, AC OFF. I had this problem for months. To reset it, I would have to pull over, take the battery cable off to reset the panel. I finally did some research and found out that the thermostat was the problem! When you replace the thermostat, make sure you get one that is set at 195 degrees cause there are different set points and if it doesn't make temp, the computer automatically takes over to prevent engine damage. I went to Autozone and bought a Failsafe 195 temp thermostat and my truck hasn't had a problem since!

2001 Ford Taurus running hot


First thing to check when the engine is cold is that if there is enough antifreeze in the radiator and after you run the engine for about 5/10 minuter check both the rad hoses to see if they are both at the same temperature, if the return hose which is the bottom one is cold then replace the thermostat. If both hoses are hot or same temp then make sure the radiator fan comes on?

Don't worry about the fan. I think you have a bad temp sender unit. Replace that and see if it helps the stalling also. If not, go for an engine analysis. They will check for trouble codes and check engine sensor functions.

Temperature needle stays on the hot , have changed temperature sensor but it still stays on the hot and the engine is not overheating or leaking anything..what is making it stay on the hot


replace the thermostat,, and make sure that the fan engages , just because the fluids don't boil over doesn't mean the temp isn't to high, if your saying that the temp gauge is stuck on the hot setting, and doesn't move even when the car is cold,, thats a different problem,, if thats the case whats the make , model , and year

My engine lite stays on, codes P0526 and P0106 are coming up..we replaced the fan clutch but the lite stays on..what else could be wrong with these codes


You don't say if the codes are same after fan clutch replacement, if you still get the P0526, you may have a bad clutch or a defective wire harness.
For the P0106, this is indicating a problem in the MAP sensor area. In order to check the MAP sensor you need a highend scan tool. But before changing anything, do a thorough cleaning of the throttle body first, make sure to clean the front and rear sides. Also disconnect the battery while doing the cleaning, this will reset the computer to factory defaults and allow it to relearn to the cleaned throttle body.

I have a Nissan civilian bus,Used, model 2006 diesel. i bought it from United Arab Emirates and i am driving it in Lebanon. the problem is that its overheating on hills and the temp. is reaching 100 C. i...


not bad little buses actually. A little under powered but, good. Drain and refill the cooling system. Does this engine have an electric fan of a fan clutch attatched to the engine. I can not remember which this has. If it is a fan clutch, replace it too. I don't think you have any major problems. Let me know.

My fan stays on all the time


Engine temp sensor has gone bad, thinks the engine is hot even with the ignition off.
open the engine compartment fuse panel and remove the fuse for the fan so you dont run your battery down while you park it, put it back in to drive though, just till you get the new sensor.

The cooling fan in the engine does not kick in and the temp dial in the car stays at cold whats wrong what can i do many thanks stu


Well try turning the ac on & see if the fan comes on. It should. If not then you got a problem. I think these issues are not related. The temp sensor for the coolant gauge is probably bad. I think the fan works fine or you'ld be overheating alot.

You can test the system by disconnecting the engine temp sensor that turns on the fan, the engine computer will go into failure mode and turn on the cooling fan, if the fan does not run check for voltage at the fan with a 12 volt test lite..
