Thermostat may not be working properly, hot coolant has to circulate via the heater core in order to get heat. Normally operation temperation should be 180 to 200 degrees.

SOURCE: Overheating and heater not work

there is a valve on the water pump and one on the thermostat housing open those up one at a time until you get a little bit of antifreeze come out then tighten them back up. All you will be doing is bleeding the air out of the cooling system. my car was doing the same thing after I changed my thermostat.

Why does my temperature gauge keep going up and down


An accurate temperature gauge will always fluctuate because the temperature in the engine fluctuates.

Usually the only time this is really noticeable is when the engine has been working hard and suddenly has to wait at a junction or similar and the gauge can rise considerably.

You didn't mention by how much the gauge fluctuates?
As long as it remains approximately in the normal zone it is acceptable but if it climbs into the hot zone or falls into the cold zone it is not acceptable and the cause should be investigated as soon as possible.

Peugeot 308 1.6vti enginefan keeps coming on


The engine fan is activated by coolant temperature, and it is normal for it to turn on when the coolant temperature increases. Be certain that your coolant level is correct, and expect it to engage from time to time, especially in warmer weather.

2008 peugeot 308 1.6 sport, temperature reads normal,but heater only blows very slightly warm air.


There can be all sorts of other DIY's from draining, flushing and refilling system, thermostat replacing and buying a new car.
Mine from City Peugeot was going to be a £2000 fix and they didn't even know what was wrong.It was just a hail Mary.
Other things that beat them was the rear light cluster not working - £400 fix, was just a loose fuse in the glove box.
The 26mpg when it should be 43, they just say is in the ok bracket, even though I reported it within 2 months of buying and it was sold as 43mpg.
Best advice - do not buy another Peugeot. I now cycle everywhere unless it is raining. I stay local and cant afford another car. Thats all fair I suppose.

After a cold start, I don't get cabin heat for about 15 minutes. The heat gauge starts at C (cold), rises to normal operating temperature, then rises to just under the H (hot) for about 30 seconds, at...


Check for low coolant, you might also have a sticking thermostat. Alot of fords get air pockets, make sure if it needs coolant to let it run for about 10-15 min with the radiator cap off.

I have such problem on audi s4 b5 2.7bt . when i switching off ignition and turn it on after several minutes, the water temperature is about 110 degree, and after this when i drive everything goes ok....


What you describe is quite normal. While the engine is running and the coolant is circulating the thermostat maintains the engine within its operating temperature range. When the engine is switched off there is still considerable heat within the engine and the coolant will continue to absorb this heat. With no coolant circulation, the coolant inside the engine will register a temperature rise to the extent your gauge measures. This temperature rise may persist for up to 15 minutes until the natural thermo-syphon of the cooling system starts to dissipate this heat build up and the engine starts to cool down. Because the cooling system is pressurised, the coolant is prevented from boiling off at this temperature above boiling point. Once the engine is restarted the coolant flow is re-established taking this excess heat from the engine and the system temperature returns to normal.

Morning, I have a 2006 dodge stratus sedan. When I turn the heat on only cold air blows when the car is sitting at a red light. But when I drive hot air blows. Is my heating element going out?


Water-cooled engines supply heat for the passenger compartment by circulating hot coolant through a radiator-like heater core. The passenger compartment fan forces air through this heater core and into the passenger area. The flow of coolant for this purpose can be controlled with a valve in the line that is adjusted when the heat control is moved or via a flap that blocks or opens the air path through the heater core to adjust temperature.
The effect you describe can be caused by several different sources:
- A slipping belt which turns the water pump. - A partially collapsed hose in the circuit for the heater, causing a reduction of water flow to the heater core. - A heater core internally blocked from deposits from the water component of the coolant. - A valve which is not being adjusted through its normal range by the dashboard control. - A flap suffering the same limitation as above.
Another effect our personal vehicles generally show with age is caused by abnormally low engine friction attributable to a particular additive we use that reduces engine friction so much that the thermostat that controls coolant/engine temperature is wide open but the engine doesn't heat enough to bring the coolant temperature into the normal operating range. We notice on two of three vehicles, that rolling on a long downgrade (engine not loaded) will cause the engine temperature to drop below its customary operating temperature.
If you have a dashboard temperature gauge, watch it to see if it rises into the middle of the range or not. If not, there may not be much you can do other than flush the cooling system, making sure that the heater control is set to its highest temperature to ensure that the heater core is in the loop while flushing.

Overheating


Sounds like the temperature thermostat is stuck closed. It is usually located at the top front of the engine in the small manifold that the radiator pipe connects to.You can test it on the stove - they open widely above 90 degrees C

2004 Tahoe Heater Problem

2004 Chevy Tahoe. Heater working only at higher speeds.


you have air trapped in the cooling system. A good indication is that one or both of your heater hoses going into the heater core are cold when they should be hot.
Park facing uphill, raise front of vehicle so radiator cap is higher than top of engine. (You want bubble to get to radiator and out the cap.)
Leave cap on but loose, so bubble can purge.
Turn heater on.
Fill radiator and reservoir with 50/50 mix of antifreeze.
Start engine and run at about 1500 roms until the engine warms up and thermostat opens.
You will know themostat opens when top radiator hose is hot indicating coolant is flowing.
Shut off engine.
Fill radiator and reservoir. Install cap.

please Rate as fixya if this works. good luck
