Question about Cars & Trucks

My 95 old ciera keeps overheating - not consistently, but over the red at least once when driving it. It has a newer waterpump, and all new hoses, and the head gasket seems ok so far. Some soft plug

    It is running into the red when heater on, because the fans won't come on. When I put on the air, that fan runs and the temp gauge goes down. After the deer hit my car, I found there is a "plug" unattached to anything. All you can see on the end is copper. It is on the front passenger side (where the deer hit) near the sensors, but they all look as though wires are going into them. The car didn't overheat prior to the deer.

    I replaced the thermostat and the fan sensor and now it seems to be working.

SOURCE: 1994 old cutlass ciera 3100 blown head gasket.

Get a Chilton's book on the car. It will take you thru the whole job, and give you the torque specs for putting it back together. You will need a torque wrench, foot pounds, and a good socket set.

SOURCE: 96 olds ciera trouble codes p0122 p0300 missingthrough entire ran

A code P0122 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • TPS not mounted securely
  • TPS circuit short to ground or another wire
  • Faulty TPS
  • Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
  • Carefully check the throttle position sensor (TPS), wiring connector, and wiring for breaks, etc. Repair or replace as necessary
  • Check the voltage at the TPS (refer to a service manual for your vehicle for specific information). If the voltage is too low that is indicative of a problem. Replace if necessary.
  • If recently replaced the TPS may need to be adjusted. On some vehicles the installation instructions call for the TPS to be properly aligned or adjusted, consult a repair manual for specifics.
  • If there are no symptoms at all, the problem may be intermittent and clearing the code may resolve the issue temporarily. If this is the case then you should definitely check the wiring to be sure it's not rubbing on anything, grounding, etc. The code may come back.
A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer
Possible Solutions If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak
in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

It is not safe to keep driving without getting someone to look at it, even if it's a friend who know a bit about cars, it's an accident just waiting to happen.

My 1996 ford thunderbird is overheating and when it does so , it leaks water and anitfreeze from under the car and from top


It could be a number of problems. If coolant is not leaking from the radiator or bad hose the water pump is the most likely culprit. There is a weephole that the water can leak out of and the only way to repair it is to replace the water pump. Good luck
