SOURCE: Recommended mph in 4 wheel drive

50 MPH in 4WD don't exceed you ll burn the transfer case clutches. (Safely stay at 40, why chance it.)

Low 4WD 25 MPH is the max, I recommend no more that 15MPH

Burnt clutches in transferr case 1200 job at the dealer, includes new clutch pack and fluid and 3 days of work, one or two days if you are lucky depending on their work load. (Read your manual)

SOURCE: Fan kicking in too often 1998 f150 4x4 4.6 tow

If the engine is not over heating then it is doing its job. The constant cycling is based on the temp of the air traveling through the radiator and the a/c condenser not the outside temp so much. The start up high rev is just how these clutches work in ford fans. It sounds like it is operating correctly.

Idiling high, temperature guage not working. no check engine light on. no problems shifting, fan coming off & on, blowing hot & cold air. can drive it, but it wont start up right away &


Check the cable to the temp sender unit is attached if so check the unit is working with a ohms meter. check the throttle cable is not binding ,the throttle leaver stop at the throttle body housing should be fully closed .

Temp guage works erratic


It sounds like you have an air lock in the coolant system . loosen of a high point hose and let the air out while keeping an eye on the water level in the radiator.. engine temp sensor will only send a signal to the CPU to adjust the fuel mixture and turn the fan on. It is not a temp gauge sender unit.

2000 acura tl coolant fan after fluid change


New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.

Answer:

ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?

leaks?

does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

Do you have a way to read out the codes?
How do you know it's overheating? Blowing steam from the pressure release? Sluggishness? Water consumption ?
Does your fan work?
By the sounds of it it could be in limp mode, so yeah, an old reader would help here.

You 're in the right area. Just try to see where the leak is coming from. If the fan has quit, then it very well could be the problem.If stem is coming out it may have a split or hole in the radiator. But again it can be a simple overflow tank CAP. If these have no psi rating left, the the hot water will go somewhere and the the CAP is the weakest point. This will cause it to be hot and stem to come out.

You don't say where you are.

You probably need a new thermostat. Cost for the part should be about $10. Labor to change it out should be $50 to $70, it takes less than an hour. Spring for fresh coolant, too.

The fans: the driver's side fan is activated by the A/C. I know, I know it's winter. But if you're running your defroster, you're running your a/c too. When the a/c is on, the fan can be on, too.

2001 pontiac aztec, temp guage shows (very) high) temp reading. I take the battery cable off, replace cable, then it appears normal. I have done this for 4 months, everything is OK. Now it no longer solves...


if you have high miles, 75k or more I would go ahead and have tempature sensor and thermostat it self change. I don't see battery cable would have any bearing to the temperature guage or cooling process. Both switch work almost the same, at time it work well other time it read or work incorrectly because it a sign of unit becoming faulty. If the temperature sensor is faulty half of the time it well give you incorrect reading however if the temp sensor working properly and the Thermostat is not, you will also get a high temp reading due to the Thermostat is not working properly allowing the hot antifreeze to flow out from the engine to the radiator which cause the hot antifreeze to be remain lock up in the engine block. Thermostat suppose to open and close when it reach its temperature; at the same time I would also replace thermostat switch which operate the cooling fan. all three tend to go bad over times; replacing all three is a great ideas. Thermostat, thermostat switch and temperature sensor.

Temp guage in red' dummie light on engine not hot


Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
