If its overheating, mostlikely its one of a few things. A.) Thermostat needs to be replaced as it can no longer sense the temperature of the engine. B.) check to see if the auxillary fan is working correctly, if its not replace the fan if its elecrtical or the relay.

My hybrid in park engine keeps runing

This system is computer controlled so you must have the dealer test it with a special scanner to determine the cause of this.

Igot a problem audi 1.8t showing a oil light wen engin is runing after 10 km starting noise in camfolows we put new oil pump still do the same thing

Main bearings on the crankshaft are bad. The reason for the noise is that when the oil gets hot it thins out, thus causing low oil pressue thru the crank bearings. This in turn doesn't push enough oil the the cam lifters. causing them to chatter.

Car is runing hot after i replace the thermostat

You have either put the new thermostat in the wrong way around ,so it isent opening up so take it out and turn it up the correct way(spring looking part to the bottom) engine side,
OR it needs air bleeding from system like turning the heater to hot before filling with antifreeze to get out the air from the heater when you start and run.. Ron

sometimes the coolant system has to be filled from the small plug on the water bypass crossover block on front top of motor to keep it from air locking it.its not easy but i have fixed many of them for people having the same problem.

Engine Light on

can you tell me more I just had the same problems is it runing cold or hot over heating . this is what mines was doing running cold when heat was on if it not mess up when the heat is on. I would get a thermostat from the chevy dealer trust me they work the best. if it is runing hot the try a fail safe thermostat you can get one at auto zone but when i put one of those in did not solve my problem there are ones that have a by pass featuer work good only if your car is over heating in not by a regular plan with no featuers. if you still have a problem trying this out try tps sensor get that checked. check for leacks antifreeze
