Water level is ok but light comes on 2002 impala


Friend,
If it is the temperature light ( not the check engine light) you may wish to check and see if the engine is actually hot.
(Be advisesd. An overheated engine is really serious! )
With the engine not running and cold, and the car level, take off the radiator cap very slowly to relieve the pressure, be certain the radiator is full, and then start the car.
Stand back in case the radiator blows antifreeze out.
Now start he car, and with the engine running, and when the temperature light is on, very carefully feel or smell the radiator and top radiator hose. If these are not hot, you problem may be a stuck thermostat. If the thermostat is stuck, you should sense the heat by smelling and listening to the motor.
If you have an overheating issue, please refrain from driving the car until it is fixed, or you could totally destroy the motor.
Also, there are 2 electric blower fans behind your radiator. One is for engine temperature, one is for the air conditioning circuit.
If the temperature light comes on, one of the blower fans should be running. If neither is, that may be your problem.
Be sure to leave your heater/air conditioner off during this test.
The most common problem is a bad temperature sensor for the fan, then a bad fan itself. After that, a stuck thermostat.
Blessings on your figuring this out.

AC blower will not turn off on 1999 Cadillac Deville?


Are you sure it is the AC blower? a lot of modern cars have a temperature controlled radiator fan, this can run when the engine is very hot , even when the keys are removed. It is a safety feature to protect your engine.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.


The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower motor replacement to resolve the issue.


If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you enough then it's better to have it replaced.


Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.


A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it when necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's because of a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blower fan motor replaced.


If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it means that you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you go for the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near the end of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine is reved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket).


Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Engine runs hot when heater is on


check your coolant temperature. put all your knobs into full (blower, heater). and see if the temperature rises higher than the normal temperature of your vehicle.
if this happens, you have overheating problem. something wrong with your radiator.
your Fan must on and open up your hood to see if it is working while your vehicles engine running with the heater and blower on fully.
if not turning, then you have problem with your sensor (temperature sender sensor) attached to the fan wires to the radiator.
if you have engine leaking, sometimes an oil build- up around the engine cause hot temp and burning smell.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

83 ford ranger no heat ,new heater core,thermostat,blower motor,runs at normal temps,noticed one heater hose very hot yet the other one which is ran into a metal line going to the engine or ekg valve is...


it sounds like you have a air blockage, or the cooling system needs flushed. to flush system go to ( autorepair.about.com/od/regularmaintenance/ss/coolant_f...) click on 3rd one down. remember to bleed air out of system, this works the best. turn heater and blower on high, start adding coolant. start car let it idle till radiator thermostat opens. when top radiator hose gets hot you should have heat. some vehicles have a bleeder to let air from system. when filling putting coolant in system. if it does, then open bleeder while engine running and putting in coolant untill there are no air bubbles coming out. have a good day !! when doing flush if need be. you can go to any auto parts store and buy radiator flush. follow directions on the back ( prestone is best )

Overheating


Welcome to Fixya

Maker sure that you have enough water to your radiator and reservoir. Double check the rediator for any holes. Check also the water pump if it is working. You may look the radiator from cold start and see if the water is running. if water is running, it means that fan water pump is working and water is circulating to your engine. Check also the blower of the radiator. If you think that the fan is moving slow then you might need to replace the fan.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Blower motor stopped working, where is the blower located and would replacing motor solve problem?


the brush's are probly stuck open / did you look on the fire wall for a blower fan shape it's probly hiding up inside on the firewall or under a fender /if you can find the motor try giving it a good sharp rap on the end to free the brush's and hope it gets a little more life out of itself otherwise you need a new fan blower motor .
