Get engine up to normal running temp. Turn on heater and blows warm until temp guage drops back to "C". Replaced thermo, still does it. ???


see if the radiator fan is it running even when the engine is at C or at heat
if its running when its at C the thermostat is not working properly
do you keep the windows open when you are driving can be a reason
as the car has a radiator in side also which gives you the heat

check the coolant level first! and change the thermostat if need be. sit in car until the temp. guage reads normal temp. if it is normal, and still no good heat. it is possibly the thermostat thats sticking. when changing coolant remember to bleed air from system while putting fluid in. it may also need a good flush. good-luck !! i live here in ny and today the wind chill is 8 below zero.

did you install correct temperature thermostat? also is the temp guage in the car working and what does it read, if it reads a normal reading then the fan may be working improperly.

Overheating, guage not over 1/2 mark, overflow smells like exhast


Have you tried running car from cold, with rad cap off, & heater turned on, coolant topped up, an inch or 2 from top of rad? Let it run up to operating temperature, cooling fans kick in & out 2 or 3 times, and top up coolant as needed, then put rad cap back on, & fill return bottle up to mark. There may be a worse problem, but bleeding system as I have described, ensures all air out of heater core & cooling system, which has been cause many times before on all makes & models of vehicles. Especially when no heat situation. Let me know if it helps.

After driving in hot weather for 20 to 30 minutes the car stalls


Sounds like your coil pack is going bad. When they start to go bad, they will fail when they get hot but when they eventually cool down the car will run as normal. I would replace your coil and that should take care of your problem. Thanks for using FixYa!

Temp guage barely moves and runs rough just off idle


Try a full tune up.. get Bosch platnium+4 spark plugs and Acel wires, do the fuel filter and air filter(i suggest K&N) buy some fuel injector cleaner or use Marvel Mystery oil. The ECU could e gone but hard to diagnose if the car needs a tune up.
