You will need to figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel when it will not start back up. Then you will know which system to troubleshoot.

My 2005 ssangyong rexton temp gauge goes up to boiling and engine light comes even though water is only normal running temp how can i fix this


If engine light comes on you have a code in the computer. Go to AutoZone or similar as soon as possible after light comes on and get it scanned. This will give you a idea what is wrong. I think it will be a faulty ECT sensor (engine coolant temp). How do you know that coolant is only at normal operation temp?

My 2006 Rexton 270 has a intermittent problem the heat gauge drops and the yellow light comes on, no power loss. after a few km all is ok.


Sounds like the thermostat on the radiator has something flowing thru and jamming it - Do a water flush with chemicals to clear out the junk. and buy new thermostat - about £6-8 max refill with water and antifreeze to improve cooling efficiency - 2 days before flushing put cleaner fluid in the radiator not the overflow bottle as it may not get sucked up. Then do the flush after a day or two as all the gunk will be in suspension, and should fix it.

You have a sensor that controls this. It is a temp sensor. It could be called something else, but it is a sensor that measures your engine temps. It would shut the vehicle off if it is not working properly.

Does the car have a normal oil level on the dipstick? The behavior is consistent with a broken timing belt except for the part about the temperature gauge going to the top which would indicate overheating or a faulty gauge.

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem
