Question about 1995 Kia Sephia
The check engine light has been on for a little while in my car. Auto Zone was not able to diagnose it because they said my car is too old for their code reader. It is a 1995 Kia Sephia. My husband was driving to work one day, and very suddenly the temperature gauge went all the way up. He pulled over and lifted the hood and found that the radiator had a visible hole in it and antifreeze was pouring out of it. We replaced the radiator, thermostat, and the engine coolant fan temperature switch. The check engine light is still on and we have noticed that the cooling fan in my car will not power on unless the AC is turned on. The temperature gauge reads normal, but the car runs very hot. The cooling fan fuse and relay test o.k. Any clue as to what would cause this? There is a hole in the exhaust, but I do not think it would be related.

rplace coolant temp sensor,and bleed all air out of coolant system ,fan relay checks and fuses check is good,,do fans run with ac on? if they do ,fuse and relay most likely ok but check relays any way

if your thermostsat stays opens all the time then replace it , check it by taking it out ,if it is closed went it is cool then is not stuck open,.if you remove it and it is cracked open then it is stuck open.it should not open until it heats up to about 180 degrees. If your thermostat checks out good then your next thing would be your temp. sensor not working properly..replace your temp. sensor..this sensor is very important because it tells your computer when your car is propery warmed up so that your car / fuel air mixture and your injectors start to operate properly so you get the best fuel economy and clean emmisions...This has nothing to do with your coolant level..
