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.

Where is the air temperature sensor on a 97 Suzuki sidekick 1.6 auto. I want to test it cause its hard to start in cold temps and seems like getting too much fuel.

so how cold is it, KeyWest, 72F or -50F in Alaska.?
Intake Air temp sensor in air cleaner or it pipe.
infact the 1992 kick has no IAT,
it's not that, the IAT sensor has almost no effect on this engine.
(not true on 1995 8v engine, for those reading this)

The G16B engine, has MAF sensor, and it rules fueling, 99%
MAF is the Air meter.
there is an air temp correction sensor inside the MAF, but can not be replaced (decretely) and the MAF is $1000 at suzuki or $400 rebuilt by Cardone.
End guessing, start Diagnosis?
cold starts, (poor) can be lots of things. Ill list them but we do simple tests to find which one it is not guess and IAT is bad guess.

  1. never tuned up this decade. see first link below.
  2. bad fuel, old fuel (over 1year old, i have to ask)
  3. ECT water sensor reads too low, temp (rare) use scan tool.
  4. ISC valve stuck closed, starving engine of air , hard starts.
  5. IAC (ISC is electri) IAC is thermal only, not open on cold engine its bad. end story, it adds extra air cold, so if dead, engine WILL FLOOD. (cold starts floods) "too much fuel"
  6. low compression (cam belt slipped, and no longer 170PSI, makes hard starts. and loss of power. and overheating.
  7. vacuum tests show bouncing vacuum? oops. (ask)
  8. vacuum test show lazy vacuum (cat conv. melted?)

the official list is here.
cap, rotor , wireset, spark plugs. will give you GREAT spark
called tuneup (as will the 2 filters)

at the least, the spark plugs are bad, on most cars 90% owners ignore the key 60,000 mile tune up, and just as many run 19 year old cap/rotor wires sets, and fails. "do the service points"
Get some Bosch parts in there, (or NGK) mag wire sets.

Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu Open Question I have a problem? with my Malibu to reach the temperature of 100 degrees antifreeze is pulled from the warehouse Whether you change temperature , radiator and tank sensor and nothing.

100C? is boiling temperature of pure water,sea level.
Normal temp is 87C. with anitfreeze the coolant boils at
132C. (under 12psi cap pressure)

over heating has many causes.
coolant not tool low? levels? inside RAD actual, dead cold.
got leaks?
try a new cap and new thermostat first , they are cheap.

Where is the coolant temp sensor on a suzuki grand vitara

If it's a 2.0 it'll be on the back of the cylinder head on the intake side, sort of between the engine and the firewall - it is a single unit with two separate and independent sensors, one for the dash guage, the other for the ECU.

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.

1997 Honda Accord cooling problem.

Most Hondas and modern car fans can and do run at will. 215 on a scan tool is just reading the sensor and variation is ok. A temp gun is more accurate. Ill bet your gage is still normal. I have a honda and the fan runs at times when I get out. Normal

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.
