Check to see if your rad fan is coming on when engine at normal operating temperature or slightly above. Sounds like it may not be. Check fuses & relays.

P0128 came back after replacing t-stat


code p 128 refers to coolant thermostat---coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature ====causes --mechanical fault
you say that you have replaced the thermostat and it is just under 210 F which is 99 c or almost boiling point
you will have to investigate why it is running so hot.
check that you put the thermostat in correctly ( bulb section to block/head water
Next point --the codes are originated by the coolant temperature sensor ( puts the fans on and sets the ECM fuel/air ratio for the engine ) so to get it off you will need to reset with a scan tool

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 5.0 V8 and the temp gauge in dash goes all the way to hot after restarting engine but info panel in console says the engine temp is ok. It seems to run like normal...


Although the Explorer I had didn't have the same size engine, I did have a similar problem. Start with looking up the location of the temperature sensor unit. I little Google search turned up a few youtube videos and some links to new parts ranging from around $20 and up. Of course the price is only dependent upon the application so the lower cost one's could be for the smaller displacement models. Judging by your description and the fact that you drove that distance without the engine seizing, this may be the culprit. Good luck.

My 98 subaru is not running hot but the thermostat needle just goes up and down and when its all the way up and the air is on it blows out hot air....the thermostat is brand new


Well the gauge issue could be your Coolant temp switch is bad.But if the car is blowing hot air out when the ac is on,that can be a faulty thermostat new in the box(it does happen) or you have a airpocket in your cooling system which just needs bled out.Usually there is a small valve located near the water inlet to the engine just open it and run the engine until water starts coming out then close off.Or if the car is not running hot,then you may just have a blend door or the heater control valve under the dash stuck on heat so it is just letting in hot air all the time.Narrow down what it is not then you will find out what is doing it.Check the switch,check your bleed valve,then check your heater valve and hoses.All are fairly cheap to replace.

Need fan belt diagram for 95 toyota landcruzer


My 95 land cruiser A/C is good sometimes for 2-3 hrs cold only and then compressor stop on my way from San Jose to Las Vegas trip. Again back to normal cold on the next day and back again with same routine problem. I check the compressor at 35psi normal and no leak. 1. Is that the compressor relay problem? 2. Where is the location or box of the relay switch compressor ? 3. What is the standard thermostat temp. for my truck? 4. What is the difference using lower temp and std. temp. thermostat? My temp. goes up even w/o A/C and then goes back to normal again. My solutions: 1. I installed new water pump , coolant, belts and radiator caps. Do you have any suggestion or remedy to my problem. Thank you and more power to the Auto Doctor.

The car over heats,running hot.


Your probably looking a getting a new thermostat. This controls the coolant flow into the engine. If it fails to open the coolant can't flow properly and your car overheats. Check your coolant levels first to make sure it's good. let your car run till it reaches normal operating temps and see if the top coolant hose gains pressure. If not then your coolant is low. Or thermostat is stuck open. Replace thermostat

My heater just stopped working on my 94 chevy truck. what should i be looking for


the hot water line from the engine goes through a valve that is controled by the temp control on your dash,older ones were cable control, the newer ones are usually vacuum controled,look for a vacuum leak at valve or dash control

Need to replace a Thermostat on a 2001 PT Cruiser. Have the new Thermostat need insturctions on how to do the replacement.


Most thermostats are located in the upper radiator hose housing mounted to engine block. Make sure engine is cold put a catch pan under your car to catch any antifreeze that comes out. Remove the two bolts holding the housing on the engine and remove thermostat and gasket. Clean engine block where gasket goes very good and also the housing, have to remove all gasket material so when installing new one it will seal and wont cause a leak. Make sure when you put the thermostat back in it goes in spring side down towards engine. Replace housing and bolts. replace lost coolant with a 50/50 mixture in your recovery tank. Start engine let heat to temp and check for leaks.
