SOURCE: transmission won't go into overdrive when engine is hot

Lexus's have a complicated system of electronics that control the function of the transmission.Under normal operating conditions the transmission is controlled by the ecu and by a secondary system called a drivetrain control module. usually when a fault occurs it sends a code to the ecu and the check engine light comes on.
If this light does not come on then typically the electronic modulator is at fault and needs to be replaced.
If the check engine light comes on when the vehicle is hot i need this code to guide u further for the repair.
If u want to attempt the repair , be wary. its messy and takes time to do to do it right.

No heat when moving. when i sit still i get a lot of heat. I replaced the thermostat, coolant level is ok. both heater core hoses get hot.all doors and heat settings work. temp gauge stays right at 200...


If you have a vapour lock your engine will create steam easily but the coolant doesn't circulate. Or it is possible that your impellors on your water pump have corroded

Hi, i have a 2001 mk4 golf 1.4 s fitted with the axp engine. had the head gasket changed last week, all skimmed , pressure tested properly etc. got the car back and what i thought was just unburnt oil on...


I had a look at the video and it looks like steam - to confirm oil will not evaporate but steam will disappear. If it is steam you have a blown head gasket again or a crack in the head, but you definitely seem to be getting water/steam into your crankcase.

My 96 jetta gets hot & beeps a lot during stop & go traffic


your anti freeze is worn out and corrosion has built up and is clogging/blocking flow, solution is to drain radiator, fill with water and radiator flush (found in auto parts store) follow directions on flush bottle, change thermostat while system is empty and refill with new anti freeze mix. for more detailed help suggest a chilton's manual for your car available at auto store around$25 and guides ou through most repairs

My 98 golf won t start intermittently. I replaced


If you run a push button directly from the battery to the solenoid, the engine will crank when you push the button.

If the no start condition is because of the solenoid, this will not fix the issue.

If the no start condition is related to circuitry of the ignition system and/or fuel system, this may fix the issue, but may not, as well.

AIRLOCK IN COOLING SYSTEM


Hi Nizzy . Sorry to tell you but it sounds like your water pump impeller has fallen/broken off . Depending on your engine code it would be better off changing the cambelt and tensioner at the same time . Regards VW Audi tech
