I have a toyota camry1993 car, when i turn the engine on and temperature starts to rise the fans turn for a little time and then stops , where is the problem?

I do not know if you have one or two fans. The cars with electric fan radiator cooling had two fans which I owned. One fan works with the temp of the engine. It come on and off to control engine temp. The other fan only came on when the A/C is running. The fact is the electric fans can come on even after you shut the car down if it needs it to control engine temp. If your car is not running hot the fan is probably doing what it is supposed to do.

08 Ford Explorer 4.0L - At times the coolant goes through the radiator cap into the recovery tank, filling it, same time temp gauge rises Changed tstat and cap. I think it is a clogged radiator

possible and an accredited radiator shop will be able to do a flow test to check that
unfortunately , it indicates a gasket or cracked problem so have a compression test done to eliminate that
if that test proves good then have the thermostat removed and checked/replaced if the engine runs a viscous fan hub then check that as well
viscous fan hub failure is most noticeable when stopped at lights ( temp gauge goes up but comes back down when moving along the road) temp rises in slow moving traffic , using high engine rpm as in up hill or any condition where the air is not moving through the radiator unless the vehicle has speed
if you have electric fans then the problem may be in the coolant SENSOR unit that sends the temp to the ECM to switch on the fans

My 97 hyundai Accent I can drive it 100 miles and electric cooling fan doesn't come on ,doesn't get hot

Not necessarily. The vehicle, in motion, has enough air flow through the radiator that the fan is usually not needed. The fan will run if the vehicle sits and idles for a while and the coolant temp rises since there is no air flow through the radiator. If you are worried about fan operation, there are two things to check. The fans will ALWAYS come on if the A/C is turned on. That is because the fans pll air through the A/C coil in front of the radiator. Air must flow through that at all times or pressure in the A/C lines will get too high. So test that circuit simply by running the engine and turning on the A/C. If the fans run, that part works. Now turn the A/C off. Let the engine run until the temp gauge gets to around 200-220 degrees F. The fan should come on about this time and run until the temp drops to about 190. This cycle will continue to keep the coolant from getting too hot. If the temp gauge gets into the red area and the fan has not come on, shut down the vehicle immediately to prevent engine overheating, and then troubleshoot that portion of the fan circuit.

Is it normal on 94 grand prix 3.1 for the temp. gauge to NOT stay at a steady temp. all the time? mine seems to go up to 210 at a stop light then go back down after i start rollin again, i just had air...

Have you checked your cooling fan to see if it is working propely? Let the car idle and get warm and listen for the fan to kick in (if they are electric) or just watch to see if the fan starts to spin faster if it is the old school type with a clutch. Have you replaced the thermostat? A bad one will let the temp rise since it opens too late and then the temp will drop off. But it won't due this only at a light and it will do it infrequently.

this is normal for most vehicles, it is because the water temp in radiator continues to rise after you shut the engine off. would not worry about it unless it dose not shut off at all. or never runs

My 1999 Chevy malibu keeps overheating even when the heater is on what is the problem?

You may have a radiator leak. Or your coolant level is low. Using the heater is not a solution to an overheating vehicle. You can usually smell coolant and see the leak. Often times a gasket can leak mixing engine oil and coolant, decreasing effectiveness of both sytems. Check color of fluids make sure the cooloant is viscus and not sludgy.

Also check coolant fan electric connections and fuses. The fan really cools down the engine moreso than coolant. It should kick on when your engine reaches a certain temp. If it does not the vehicle will overheat.

When driving i have rising water temperature

The coolant temperature should rise until the gauge indicated roughly half. if it continues to go until it reaches the red "H" shut the vehicle off and wait for the car to cool off. The most likely cause of this is the thermostat. It is a $4-$10 part and usually is easy to change. Thanks for asking!

2000 catera started running hot and causing oil pressure drop

You should be using 10W30 in summer. You may have 5 W still from the winter.

Did the temp gause go up past 1/2 way?

1994 Saturn 1.9 SOHC cooling fan does always come on

This is actually a commen problem. All I can tell you that there is trick with pressing the A/C button while leaving the blower fan off. That will usually kick the fan in. What I find is that when you have a car that is overheating, and this is especially with GM cars, the best thing to do is to try to cruise at a constant speed, while avoiding heavy traffic, allowing the motor to breath cooler air which will stop the temps from rising any further. Most GM motors are built to handle the abuse of an overheating engine.
This suggestion is a possible solution to this simiiar problem which I had. This solution won't be any good for someone with a seriously overheating problem. If your temps shoot up high after only driving a short distance, parts or supplies will need to be bought.
