Wont start below 65 degrees all summer runs fine as long as temp above 70 degrees


Cold start sensor is defective and not enriching the mixture for cold weather start. Its usually in the inlet manifold/water jacket and works the ECU until the air/water temp has reached a pre determined point.

94 accord ex still running hot after new water pump,hoses,termostat


Is it actually overheating or is your gauge just saying it is, did you measure the water temp to see if you have a bad temp sensor?
Have you started it from cold with the radiator cap off and let it warm up till water starts circulating so you can see that it actually is? New thermostat in backwards could cause it also.

Hi there my mazda etude 160i wont start at normal operating temp must leave for few minutes then will start again


When you shut off a fully warmed up engine, the temp rises as all water circulation has stopped. This extra high temp can cause electronic parts to fail which then work again as they cool. Somewhat rare, but possible coil/module or crank/cam sensor issue. Also may have leaky injectors which bleed down when you stop and flood the engine. Sitting lets excess fuel evap and then will start again. Just my thoughts.

Temp gauge and blazer jumps around when driving


Vehicle temperature gauges (temp gauge) read the temperature of the liquid in cooling system. From what I understand, the temp gauge jumping around has since gone away after you placed water into the radiator. It is very possible that water converted into steam was trapped in the cooling system and reached the temp sensor in your engine. The vehicle moving caused this steam to shift around reflecting rapid changes in temperature on the sensor, causing the needle to jump around on your console.
Hope this helps.

Running lean


I know the water temp sensor and air flow sensor can cause that. There are other possible solutions but, the Water temp sensor plugs into the intake it adds fuel when water is cold and gives less fuel when the water gets warm -- the air flow sensor will add and take away fuel depending on quantity and quality of air.

2000 hyundai accent runs good though,when it gets up to temp. the car shuts off ,when it gets cold again it starts right back up whats my problem has a new radiator in it


car shuts off when temp, gets to normal--- causes: low coolant, failing coolant temp. sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, kinked heater hose, check the coolant temp. sensor first.

When driving engine stops and car doesn't start until it cools down


You may have a failing cam sensor. This part, if it fails, has the symptom that the vehicle won't start until the engine cools down from normal operating temperature.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero overheating


I think you started out looking in the right places. Replacing the coolant, thermostat, relay and sensor are all fairly inexpensive.

I believe you either have blockage in the system (especially if you're using tapwater), or your water pump may be failing.

I would first either take it to a radiator shop and have them flush the cooling system out thoroughly, or else pick up a chemical flush kit and do it yourself. This involves more than just drain and refill.

If this doesn't work, your next step will probably be replacing the water pump. At almost 200k miles, it's probably about due anyway.

Very bad idol and run condition.


sounds like a possible water temp issue... check your thermostat and/or water temp sensor. when you first start your engine the computer uses the water temp reading to do a 'cold start' scenario, more fuel. once you reach normal operating temp the fuel should be cut back. if the thermostat is not opening and closing properly this can cause strange readings from the water temp sensor (which is mounted near the thermostat)... unlikely the sensor is bad, but a possibility... more likely the thermostat.

1996 sl1 water pump went out...replaced then it super overheated....thermostat must have stuck....then it worked fine except now it won't start cold I have to push start it. Then it is hard to start on...


Be sure your coolant level is OK first. When a water pump or other cooling system part is replaced air blocks in the system are not uncommon. If the engine overheated, this could have fried the coolant temp. sensor (ECT) causing the hard starting. (It might think the  engines always hot) ECT are pretty cheap. Just replace it and see what happens.
