Sounds like the temp switch for the fan or the fan motor itself. To check run jumper wires from your batter directly to fan.. If it turns on, then you have a bad switch. If not , your fan motor is bad. I do not have a diagram for your car but finding wires from your fan assemble should be easy. Trace starting from fan. There should be a harness soon after the fan for you to connect jumper wires to to check fan. And by the way it does not matter witch way you hook the jumper wires up. It will only change the direction the fan motor turns. Just make sure you disconnect the harness so that you do not create a back flow of current.The reason for your coolant overflow to be getting excessive pressure is the heat in the system is causing boil over(the car is too hot).

Fiat's dashboard has a cavity to insert a special designed Tom-Tom GPS. Fiat dealers/importer can't supply these. Being the manufacturers, can you supply a unit?

this page doesn't supply anything except information and answers to questions. Fixya is not a manufacturer
Now then I would suggest that you contact tom tom direct and explain the problem to them and ask if they can give you a name of a supplier or if they can supply direct.

Does the 1993 nissan sentra need its thermostat

Running an engine without a thermostat will allow it to run too cold. This will cause oil problems and fuel efficiency problems. The computer will make adjustments for a cold engine which will affect idle speed, timing, and pollution controls. You may have a plugged radiator or a water pump not moving enough water or a bad thermostat. The cost of a thermostat is much less than the damage you will cause running without one. If the radiator is plugged. running without a thermostat will not solve the over heating condition.

Find the engine identification tag. Attached at the factory, this tag is normally found on the engine block around the coil bolts. The top line of the tag identifies engine size and model year.

Search the block for the engine block casting number. The numbers are raised, not stamped into the block and consist of seven numeric digits. The digits can be located on either side of the block. The seven-digit number may be followed with a dash and further numbers. These are change codes and are not normally necessary to identify the engine.


Locate the casting date is located on the block. It is in standard date coding, 2.25.93, for example and may be located on either side of the block, but is commonly located on the driver's side of the block, above the freeze plugs. The example 2.25.93 decodes as February 25, 1993. The casting date may be near the casting clock, which designates the hour the block was cast. Magnum engines were manufactured from 1993 to 2002, so verifying the date code helps identify the engine.

It has to do with the charging system. There is a relay that needs to be replaced on your alternator.

You dont need to replace the alternator here.

Good luck.

How do you change a freeze plug in chevy 1500 with a 350 5.7L

what are you calling a freeze plug???do you mean core plug ,the metal plug in the side of the cylinder block /head.queens english please before we send the gunboats.these metal plugs are used to block the holes which have been left to remove the casting sand.Well these only tap in no problen their ,its just that sometimes you have to remove a lot to get at them.Always remove the old one first and take it to parts shop as sizes can vary depending on the manufacturer.What might be specified is not always the case in pratice.production running slow ,quality control is overidden and a larger one fitted.Always remember to refill with 50% antifreeze and thats about of british with getting to it in though.I changed some on a fiat tempra this week what a lousy job ,had to remove the manifolds and water pipe talk about a knuckle banging job
