My daewoo matiz is run off while the temperature is arrived 90 degree, to start i must wait until it will cool or it arrives 45 degree ,it will start by pushing even if it is not cool ,what will be th


Hi there
If your car has a radiator then it is coolant and engine runs at approx 35deg as it works the thermostat witch controls the water flow through the radiator AND your engine is running to hot, OR you have a blown head gasket witch will cause the same problem also check that the radiator isent blocked from the outside [like paper etc] or inside like dirt as some people fill with water from a dam etc.
Let us know how you get on with above.

Coaster idling high and high fuel consumption


Water temperature is low cost oil is certainly the easiest way is with a hard shell to block part of the warming effect of the radiator well as for how much you want to try to stop. Idle temperatures will rise up relatively low. What is the pull speed? Not run fast but continues to run uninterrupted some time. Usually two hours can be. Is to allow the engine to reach full swell purpose. Such a shift is to be based on the vehicle speed and the reference engine speed. Not based on the engine speed. Driving is probably the single 30 towards third gear, fourth gear towards forty, fifty five-speed ahead. Many people on the car ahead of change. As long as the engine sounds smooth, no trailer can be.

On my 1996 ss impala what low side pressure should I see on the a/c with the system running


It all depends on the outside (ambient) air temperature. Your A/C low pressure switch is designed to turn the compressor off at 24 Psi. and turn it back on at 45 Psi. Most systems will normally run at between 25 and 40 Psi when the system is running on HIGH blower and "MAX" or "RECIRCULATE". A system that is fully charged may run at 25 Psi when the ambient temperature is 75 Deg. (F) and may run at 40 Psi when the ambient temperature is at 90 Deg. (F). (it can be even higher if ambient temperatures are higher than 90 Degrees.)

To properly diagnose a malfunctioning A/C system, the HIGH side pressure must also be checked. Restrictions in the system can make the low side pressure look normal while the high side pressure is high enough to blow hoses apart. (400+ Psi.)

Where is the temperature gauge hand supposed to


The needle should stay at or just below the 3/4 mark but it may go slightly higher but that would be rare. An example would be driving with the car loaded with 4 people, a/c running on high with outside temperatures of 95 degrees or more.

VW golf 4 03 model `s spark plugs wires are damaged by rats & are now partly not insulated can these cause the car to stall & cut when driving? It also gets to 90 degrees on the engine temperature...


Partly insulated spark plugs wires will cause your engine to misfire badly as they will cause High Voltage short-circuits by arcing to nearby engine parts: they will certainly cause your engine to stall and cut off! The misfiring will also cause timing issues and cause your engine to overheat and 'knock'.
This is a serious problem that could badly damage your engine so I suggest that you replace the damaged cables immediately. By the way, using ordinary electrical insulation tape will not help much as they are not designed for high voltage (kV range) and the cost of high voltage rubberized insulation tape as an interim solution may be higher than the cost of a cable kit.
Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.
