U may have a problem with the electric cooling fan for the engine cooling system, have it tested for proper operation. Have u had this car long? keep in mind that the cooling fan does not come on until about 230 Degree's Fahrenheit, that well on the way to hot on your engine temp guage.

I have a2004 Cad Seville & when drive on the highway between 65/70 mph runs fine then when I park the car for a while & go back on highway run at same speed I get a171&174 code.what caussing it?


These are lean fuel codes for both cylinder banks, the most common cause is a vacuum leak at an engine vacuum hose ports or the brake booster is leaking, check all the vacuum hoses, replace any that are deteriorated

1998. Why does it run hot on the highway with A/C on but not when in park or doing under 55 mph?


Insure that all lower plastic air dams below radiator are installed and intact. At higher speeds these create a low vacuum point which helps airflow through radiator. Also insure that correct thermostat is installed and working because if flow through radiator is too fast coolant may flow so fast it does not stay in radiator long enough for heat transfer.

1993 crown vic the check engine light goes on only with highway driving what could it be . When Im park and restart it its off again


You a have a check light on

That is called a MIL Lamp (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)

That not new to the auto industry

OBD1 Systems like yours stared in 1983 thru 1995

OBD2 is 1996 trhu 2013

So you check for codes every time you get any
dash light that doesn't go off once the engine is running

I would think you have experience with check lights & codes,
for decades with all your vehicles

Once you get the codes, I would guess your off to a repair shop,
as you didn't state you had codes or experience with cars & the
systems of the past 31 years

Runs fine in town.get it on highway runs fine until i come off highway stop at light trans starts slipping.park over night and it runs fine


It sounds like there is an internal hydraulic leak that occurs only when the transmission is hot. It is probably time to go through it and do an overhaul.

Does not blow heat while parked but blow good heat on the highway


My first guess would be a defective water pump but without testing its only a guess.

Car will not shift from park to reverse or drive till the taillights are activated. Car is running


This is a safety feature. The vehicle will not come out of park until you are pressing on the brake petal. According to the Federal Highway Commission all vehicles must incorporate a park lockout devise which requires the brakes to be applied before shifting from park.
