SOURCE: temperature gauge is getting hot have changed thermostat

Hello.

The air release valve is a black plastic screw by the coolant refill cap, if you unscrew this slightly after you've driven the car, it will release any air if it has any (be careful of the steam). If this solves your problem you're very lucky. I think it's most likely your water pump needs reeplacing. I would suggest getting this solved asap as there is a very real danger you can get your engine head damaged if the temp keeps going beyond the normal.

SOURCE: 2001 1.8L turbo VW beetle replace the cabin air filter

Push the center piece, on the dash, forward until it unsnaps and exposes the screws for the passenger side piece. Take the piece off and you will see the filter bracket down in the dash. Remove the filter and replace with new one.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!

THANKS!

If it's a 2.0L, then the coolant sensor would be an easy fix. It's between the Air box / engine (on top of the coolant flange on the end of the head). If you do that, you probably should do a thermostat. Usually it's recommended to replace the thermostat when you do a coolant temp sensor, but that's up to you.

SOURCE: temperature light is flashing red, coolant is

fan relay is under the frame on the left by the fans. but most likely the fans themselves have gone bad check the fuse panel on top of the battery see if it is burned or blown fuse this is caused by the fans going from stop to high speed to many times. you will flat 40 or 50 amp flat blade fuse and both fans sorry for bad news

Can either of these codes cause my 1999 Oldsmobile bravada SUV to over heat: P0442 ornP1361 or P0117??


code p 0442 refers to EVAP system so that is unlikely
check the fan operation and if you have a viscous fan hub ( fan clutch ) replace it
if you have electric fans , check coolant temperature sensor for operation , fuses , relay and fans
overheating is from low coolant levels , head gaskets/cracked heads, blocked radiator cores , fins flaking off core tubes, incorrect timing, blocked exhaust( cat converter)problem thermostat, over loading /over speeding, overdrive not engaging
if you over heating is predominately at lights , slow moving traffic or high engine rpms with low speed --check the fan operation and if it is viscous fan hub driven --replace the hub or if electric fans have that circuit checked out

The heater on my 02 mondeo takes about 30 minutes to start working properly, if I put the blower on too soon the temperature gauge shoots down, any ideas?


It sounds like the thermostat is stuck open. The thermostat is closed until the coolant in the engine gets heated up. Once it get hot, the coolant is cycled to the radiator to be cooled by air passing thru it. The coolant that was in the radiator is cycled to the engine where it is heated - or more properly termed, is used to cool the engine to keep it from overheating and seizing. The heated coolant is used to provide heat for the cabin in cold months.

Heres a video showing the job on a 2001 Mondeo and should be pretty similar job.

2001 VW Beetle 2.0 heater won t heat up


If you flushed the coolant with the thermostat in, chances are you didn't flush the coolant. Regardless, it's easiest to check the controls inside first. Does the blower fan work? Does the air flow change from floor to vent, to dash as it's supposed to? Does the A/C change temps when knob is turned from cold to hot? Post results.

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

What causes hyundai Elantra 2002 tempature gauge fluctuates between normal and hot


The thermostat "seals" the cool coolant giving up (rejecting) heat in the radiator & heater core from the hot coolant absorbing heat in the running engine "block".

When the coolant in the engine reaches a specific temperature (180 ~ 195 degrees) as determined by the value selected by manufacturer or when replaced, it opens and allows the hot coolant in the engine block to be pumped out to the radiatot & heater core for cooling and the cool coolant in the radiator / heater core is pumped into the engine block - replacing the hot coolant. The thermostat senses cool coolant in the engine block and seals shut until the temperature of the coolant in the engine block rises to 180 ~ 195 degrees again. This process continues over and over for as long as needed.

You should check to make sure that the coolant level in the reservoir / radiator is sufficient by checking when cold. Do NOT remove a radiator cap when it is hot! With the cap off, start the engine and add additional coolant as the engine warms up to normal operating temperature. If coolant levels are ok, the trouble could be related to the thermostat or possibly a faulty temperature sending switch. This means that the temperature of the coolant is fine - but the switch or sensor that converts the temperature to a voltage for the gauge on yur dashboard is the problem.

If the temperature is fluctuating up and down, you should have it fixed. Good luck!

Engine runs hot


Hello,
Most often that is caused by a bad thermostat.

How to test the thermostat in most vehicles;

Make sure the heater is off, start the engine and let it run for 6 to 8 minutes, ( this will allow the
engine to reach, " normal operating temperature "), from the inside of the vehicle turn the heater
temperature on high and turn the fan speed on high.
1. Listen very closely for a click sound from the engine, ( most thermostats make a click when
they open )
2. Watch your temperature guage, it should begin to lower as the coolant starts to circulate.
3. Usually within a few minutes the radiator fan will kick.

What the thermostat does;

It seperates your coolant into two parts. The first part is in your engine, the second part is in your
radiator and the coolant reservior. When the coolant in the engine reaches the temperature rating
on the thermostat the thermostat opens to allow the two parts of coolant to change places. Now
the cooled coolant in the radiator and reservior flows into the engine while the heated coolant flows
from the engine into the radiator and reservior to be air cooled by the radiator fan.

I hope this helps you.

Tempeture guage not working and heater is blowing out very little hot air on my ford galaxy


you need to get the thermostat changed. The thermostat controls how much coolant runs around the engine and sends signals to your temp gauge to indicate how hot the engine is.
if the thermostat is faulty it wont sent signals to the temp gauge and wont open up to allow coolant to run around the system. Your heating is run by coolant, behind the dash there is the heater matrix hot coolant runs into the matrix which gets blown inside the cab.
Fitting a new thermostat will fix all the heating and gauge problems. if your technical minded you can buy a thermostat from an autofactor (or ford, but they are expensive from ford). a garage will charge about £30-£100 ish for a new one.

hope this helps :-)

2001 Bora Sport with no heat


When all your hoses are hot I want you to check the heater hoses near the fire wall. Are those 2 hoses equally hot? If not you may have a blocked or leaking heater core. Also make sure the flaps are moving to open the vent that allows the hot air passage to open.
