My tempature in my 2003 buick century stays up and cools down while driving


could be a few things wrong,you have electric cooling fans on that model.
It has a fan relay that controls high as well as low speed for the fans.Could be stuck on low,the radiator or the water pump could be clogging and incorrect fluid flow is the problem, I would check the fan speed relays first and take the trouble shooting from there.Good luck,Gary

2006 PT Cruiser radiator cooling fan stays on whenever the car is running. Is this normal? If not, is there a fix?


It might have a bad tempature sensor or a stuck thermostat .Faulty relays or a wiring issue I recently found a bad cooling fan plug on a 06 pt cruiser.You should first have it checked for computer codes it may show a code for the problem.

Check the sensor which controls the cooling fans that cools the radiator it prevents the engine from over heating and allows the temp gauge to stay at normal range.recently had problems with my 2003 impala overheating it was the sensor had the thermostat replace as well.

I HAVE A 1992 HONDA ACCORD, THE WATER IN MY CAR IS BOILING, AND IT IS CAUSING MY CAR TO SMOKE. JUST REPLACED THE HOSES ON MY CAR 2 WEEKS AGO


The water is boiling because your car is overheating. Does your tempature gauge read hot or warm? Make sure your coolant level is full. If it is and your vehicle still overheats check to make sure your cooling fan is coming on (fan by radiator) you can do this by just letting your car run and waiting to hear it come on. It should come on before your tempature gauge reads hot. DO NOT let your car run until the temp gauge reads hot. These cars have aluminum cylinder heads and can warp causing serious problems. The cooling fan should come on for a few minutes then shut off and continue to do this. If it stays on, first make sure your A/C is switched off, second if it does not turn off and your temp continues to rise then you have other problems. You may have a bad thermostat, sticking closed. The water pump could be bad or a blocked radiator. If your coolant level is good, your fans are coming on like they should then you might try have your coolant system flushed. Those are some things you can try that are simple and not expensive. If they don't work then you'll have to start looking at other items in the coolant system. Hope that helps, gl.

Engine overheating in traffic or when idling


I'm assuming your car has the Northstar engine?.

Strangely enough,if you remove the thermostat in the Northstar engine, it will overheat, this is because the stat is both a thermostat and a pressure valve.I can't be bothered to explain in detail how the whole cooling system works but please understand that you need to put the stat back in,(or preferably a new one).As for the cooling fans,what you described is normal for the Northstar.
Further to this, look at my profile,I have provided similar solutions for overheating problems.

Cooling fans dont turn on


thats your main radiator fan, meaning if it don't come on then vehicle will get hot. check the fan for operation by letting the vehicle idle for a while, keep check the temp gauge and what for the fan to come on at the half way point.
