2001 Volvo s40 seems to stall and not start for ten to 15 min. Also has high temperature reading that is false as car is not really hot.


You need to look at the temp sending unit it's probably faulty anthor issue with volvo is dirty throttle body's this raises havoc on the car they idle up down all over the map also you should change the thermostat too as a precautionary measure make sure it's the right temp for your year of your car thanx Chris

2003 chev impala 3.8 the temp gauge goes up 1/4 of the way..what shd the normal reading go to I wld think 1/2 way on the gauge? I just think the air shd be hotter when set on hi


During the winter time the engine may not produce enough heat to go half way. You can modify this by installing a hotter thermostat. But I would not go more that 20 degrees F though, or you could create issues for summer driving.

NEW RADIATOR,1 YEAR WATER PUMP, NEW THERMOSTAT, STILL OVERHEATS,SENSOR OK, ERRATIC READINGS ON HEAT GAUGE WHEN DRIVING A SHORT TIME GAUGE GOES UP TO HOT AND ENGINE IS HOT. PARK FOR SHORT TIME AND THEN TURN...


Check first if the fan is running, you can do this by pulling out the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. You should see the fan go on. If the mechanics has checked out everything, I suggest to see if there are added load on the engine such as busted bearing on the pulleys for the serpentine belt. Observe the coolant if it is boiling hard when you notice the temp go up. It might be a problem withe the sensor which triggers the ECU to shut the engine.

Engine overheats when heater pipes connected


I think you could be right about there being air trapped in the system.
Or the heater core(radiator) is plugged.
Either way you need a pressurized radiator coolant pump to put the coolant in without air being trapped.
Although,i have seen it done by jacking the vehicle up high enough that the radiator was now higher than the heater core level, and then the coolant was put in.
But this is dangerous to try.
