Have this checked out asap as the fan circuit is probably failing and when you are stopped at lights the engine will over heat as there will be no air flow through the radiator

1994 buick skylark overheating why


Check the coolant level.
The radiator must be full, coolant should be mix of 50/50.
If it is full, and stays full when overheating, the most common cause is a defective cooling fan.
One of your electric radiator fans is for your A/C and one is for the radiator cooling
Any time the temperature gauge/ or red light comes on, that fan should be running.
Raise the hood and look the next time it overheats, and if no fans are running, you need get it fixed quick, lest you blow a head gasket.
The problem could be either the electric fan motor, or the sensor switch that screws into the engine block.
If the coolant stays full, and the fans are running, you may have a stuck or closed thermostat.
God bless your efforts.

My 1999 oldsmobile siloutte gauge sometimes says its overheating and fans wont come on till its at the red. my overheat indacator light does not come on and it has a good bulb and use to come on but not...


check for a bad thermostat or an air pocket in the cooling system...your fans should come on any time you turn on the air conditioning....check to see that both fans are coming on by doing this....trapped air is common because of the odd configuration of the cooling system...turn on all heaters and place fans on high...warm up the engine then add distilled water or dexcool to your engine coolant canister....rev a few times to pump coolant into heater cores.....good luck and be cautious when working on your engine please...

Check the park brake switch and the fluid level in the brake master cylinder, both will cause the light to flash.

Hi, my girlfriend's 2001 Eclipse 6 cyl. is quickly overheating when stopped at red lights with the A/C on. With the A/C off, it does not overheat. When it does overheat, and the stop light turns...


Check to see if your radiator coolant fan runs with the A/C on. It should run constantly with the A/C on, and even with the A/C off the fan should come on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees or better and stay on until it cools down below 200 degrees.
The problem is that you're not getting enough ambient air through the radiator.

Prius 2002 red triangle on after went off but no problems during traveling


The red triangle is the Master Warning light may also be referred to as hybrid system erro warning light. You must have had an intermit problem with the battery system for the light to come on and go off. You should take the car to a shop or dealer that works on them systems to see if it stored a code so you will have an idea what is wrong and weather it is important to have it fixed. Intermit problems are often had to find so if it's not something that not going to leave you stranded it might be cheaper to wait till the light stays on all the time.inter

How does the fan operates, does it starts and stop. Car shuts down, red light come near milage guage, have to let car cool down and start again. Can fan cause this problem? Pontiac Gran Am 1998.


the cooling fan should come on about 105-107C and shut off about 95-97C
does the car overheat just sitting running not moving
but if the car overheats on the highway then it's not the fan
check the fan operation run the car till the gauge is over half and watch the fan
if the fan woks then check coolant level if that's ok then try a thermostat
hope
