Some / Most turbo vehicles have some sort of auxiliary or main ELECTRIC water pump that will circulate coolant around in the engine a little while whilst the electric cooling fans go to work passing air over the radiator.

Reason for this (among other things) is the oil and gets so dang hot in these motors trying to keep the turbo bearing(s) from seizing, and the oil wicks away a tremendous amount of heat during this time.

Maybe the circuitry to cool the engine down nominally after you shut the motor off is afoul?

Have a 1996 saturn sl1 cant get any heat inside...have replaced thermostat already and have driven another couple thousnd kilometers, no change inside, still no heat


the thermostat is never the culprit, if it is bad the engine will tell you, not the heater. the heater core needs to be replaced. get a book or CD to show you how. good luck.

Hi there well done for a great job right my vw sharan 2001 tdi curently is not heating and the water from the engine is not hot when you touch on the pipes they are just warm however the heater gage...


First time you might check the thermostat operating.


Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!


The thermostat location for 2001 VW Sharan 1.9 TDI is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!

Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 044121113, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $25):

Important note: Always replace the thermostat seal, position 7 in the above picture.

New starter on my 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback sport is going out again. I recently bought my impreza. The check engine light came on a few times and 5 days later it would not start, I tapped on the starter...


Sounds like a bad starter. If your car is turbocharged then you might have gotten a starter meant for non-turbo application. Same thing happened to me but I couldnt get the right starter. Heat is the no.1 enemy of cars. Turbos run way hotter than non-turbo. If this is a heat related problem. I would invest in a factory starter from dealership. (worth every penny). Or just simply heat wrap it.

Transmission oil


Yes the transmission fluid goes in the location of the dipstick. As for the yellow "oil", if you just recently got the car maybe the previous owner put engine oil in the tranny fluid receptor instead of the engine...it's been known to happen. As far as I know, tranny fluid should be red, even if water gets into it, it's still a pinkish color. Maybe better to drain it and replace it. Good luck.
