all that is normal but the overheated ,did it?
there are 6 signs of overheated. ask. at least.
modern cars the EFI systems. try to prevent damage by drivers
that ignore overheating,
my chev PU, cuts injectors 1 by one till the goofy driver, parks car.

please say , what happens next. wont start?
btw 2,
my guess, is your engine stalled, ? and you then didnt notice
hard steering and 3td time applied brakes are harder?
and that RPM hit zero, and engine went silent? (my wild guesses)

yes> that the dash does show the test lamp mode
to understand that, get in car, turn key to Igntion on, no start
see all those lamps glowing, it is a self test.
the glove box oper. guide explains that on how to start the engine page.
the CEL comes on , on all stalled engines. this only means.
the PCM has power, (elect) and thinks, its kinda ok. selfttest ok.
brakes and charge glows, for same reason,.selftest , RTM.

if the CEL comes on , driving, and the overheated happens
if you do a OBD2 scan tool scan, it shows overheated.
if fact obd2 scans will show the actual engine temperature.
200f normal 250+ overheated.
if all this is hard, , find any ASE mechanic.
and btw, do not run an overheated engine or the $5 bad hose becomes a new engine time.

1991 Buick Regal wont turn over.


sounds as if you have two problems the first is mechanical problem in the engine witch is causing the noise you are herring and engine to stall but if you did not here this till after you changed the crank sensor you may be lucky as that may be causing both the stall from before witch happens when they heat up and when you installed the new one if it is not set far enough away from the crank it may have hit it and that is the noise you heard and why it will not start back up pull sensor and see if end has damage.
hope this helps

Have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with 134,000 miles. About 2 months ago it started stalling intermitently. Would stall and I could restart immediately. Now it stalls once every trip at a certain engine temp....


your car problem is overheating, some car model like yours is designed to shut-down engine when engine temp. rise so as to avoid frying the engine. your engine overheating problem is attributed by one of these factors:
1. check or refill radiator water if less
2.check radiator cooling fan operation-if damaged pls. change or check the electrical system.
3. damage/ worn water pump-if damage pls. change the water pump.
4. check for any coolant leak somewhere the coolant line-pls. rectify the leak.
5.worn coolant reservoir cap- change if damaged.
6. clogged radiator-if clogged pls. change it.
7. damaged thermostat valve.

Cooling system


these are somethings that maybe causing it to over heat (1) not enough cooling in it.(2) water pump drivebelt (3) Radiator core blocked (4) Bad thermostat (5) fan blades broken or cracked (6)Radiator cap need to be replace (7) Ignition timing incorrect if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair Manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man

96' Cavalier coolant light comes on


you might have to put in a lower temp.thermastat so like if it has a 195 put in like 180 or whatever you can get that is cooler than whats in it and it should say the temp.right on the old thermastat.Call a parts house and ask them what temp ranges of thermastats they have for your year make and model of car.

Car stalls in the middle of driving it


Is the temp guage reading high or are you just suspecting it needs to cool down? Could be thermastat bad or possible water temp sensor bad. Maybe water pump. After next time you run the car for awhile carefully touch the radiator cap and should be hot, if not then coolant is not circulating.

Coolent light and check engine light


Your thermostat will not affect the heat in your car. This is controlled by the heater core which is pulled from coolant from the engine where the coolant will be the hottest. Your thermostat opens and allows the coolant from the engine to circulate into the radiator and the coolant from the radiator flow into the engine. A thermostat is cheap and easy to replace. The sensor should be a fairly inexpensive and easy replacement as well. I would change out the sensor first because bad thermostat would create an overheating problem.

Overheating


Posible thermastat sticking closed. If thermastat doesn't open heated water is trapped in the engine causing it to run hot and not allowing hot water to travle to the heater core when called for.
