No heat while driving down road have replaced thermostat and waterpump

wow 1,double posted, why do that.
wow 2, contradicts the first.
here is your other post
"Have heat when sitting still no heat driving down road replaced water pump an thermos state"
wow3, did this happen before removing parts?
or did this precipitate all actions.
or just doing tuneups and now fails.?
context is everything, and history.
wow 4, no engine of the 4 stated.
you left out HAVE HEAT, this time. why?

why not add to the first post
better yet, answer the questions?

here i ask 1 more time
1: have heat where, (cab heat, or is it engine heat missing or BOTH?)
2: what does the below meter do.? under all conditions, moving car and not. hot engine.????

see the red arrow for good heat,?
the gauge must start low, (at ambient air temps)
the rise to the (purchased) thermostat rating (unstated)
the hold there, parked and moving at any speed.
that is NORMAL>

x2 levels in actual rad.
x2 not burping all air out of system,
wrong stat
installed backwards or missing seal.
see the seal on my 3.7l (1 of 4 engines)
if missing or wrong sized or old and ratty,
can leak.even inside leaks.

Engine overheats under load

There are quite a few reasons the engine could overheat other then a failed cooling fan clutch. I wonder if the fan is always on because the engine is always running hot?
This condition may be caused by any of the following possibilities:
• Installation of an aftermarket grille.
• A plugged charge air cooler.
• Fan clutch not operating properly.
• Drive belt slip.
• An overfilled transmission.
• Turbocharger not operating properly.
• A plugged air filter

Hope that helps........

Hi-Speed Miss under load on Park Avenues - Both Ultra and Non-supercharged

Dear sir/madam,

I think he crank sensor is defective, or installed wrong. The cam sensor controls fuel injector timing and can cause sputtering and hesitation. The timing must be correct for the injector to fire when the intake valve is opening. Check for any scratch marks on the cam sensor. In addition, check the cam interrupter magnet and be sure it in place and not damaged.

The ECM sends a 5-volt reference signal to the CTS sensor. As temperature changes in the coolant, the electrical resistance of the CTS sensor also changes. The best way to test this sensor is with a scanner. When the engine is cold, engine coolant temperature should measure near the same as the ambient temp. Another way to test the CTS sensor is to measure voltage from the time the engine is started, until it warms up. Record the voltage changes as the engine warms up to operating temp. i.e. 120, 140, 160 & 180. You should see close to the full range of voltage (5.0-1.0V) during this test. If it does not change from what you first measured cold, replace the sensor!

good luck

Engine shut off while driving

Check for fault codes . You probably have a failing coil or faulty air ambient temp sensor or engine temp sensor faulty.

Ambient temp sensor replacement

The ambient air temp sensor is located on the radiator support bracket at the top (see figure below, item 1)

3 most common causes for your problem are:
  1. Bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Reciculation) valve - clogged EGR will cause engine to stutter or miss
  2. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor - will also make an engine stutter when bad
  3. Bad TPS (Throttle Postition Sensor) regulates idle speed under multiple conditions.

Engine miss when ambient air temp increases not water/engine temp

there is an ambient temp. sensor in the intake air ducting, if its a small round two wire plug you can unplug it and the computer will think its -40C. You will set a code when you do this, but should go away after you plug it back in.
Depending on the engine you could have a cracked mainshaft in your distributor which is quite common, unfortunately most cracks are on the underside of the shaft which requires removing the distributor.

2006 town and country overhead console temperature plug in

the ambient temp sensor is mounted in front of a/c condenser..sensor may be broken/missing..should be able to see sensor looking straight in front of lower grille opening..fairly inexpensive and not too bad to part

This reading is a default setting and it looks like the ambient temp sensor is either faulty or missing, it should be located in the front lower plastic panels under the front bumper. hope this is of some help and if the sensor is missing/damaged you will not be able to reset it
