Suspect defective fan motor or fan blade.
vibration could be caused by damaged fan blades
if blades are damaged or missing the fan will be unballanced causing vibration and with missing blades will not be able to cool your engine.

switch off engine open hood and identify fan in its housing try to determine if all blades are still attached. and thay are all of equal length.
if attached, suspect fan motor or motor bearing been worn.

Warning: after driving engines become hot and cooling systems contains water under high pressure if opened this may burn skin.
never inspect cooling fan when engine or ignition are on, they may operate without warning and cause serious injury.

WHY IS MY HINO 500 TRUCK OVER HEATING ALMOST TO THE RED ZONE AND THE COOLANT LEVEL IS ON THE MAXIMUM?


couple of reasons
have a compression test done to determine head gasket or cracked head
watch closely when the over heating starts and if it cools down
it the temp rises when going slow ( heavy traffic, hard pulling up hills , stop lights -- basically when the road speed is low and there is low/no air through the radiator-- check for a faulty fan clutch or viscous fan hub failure ( spins but doesn't pull air )
check for thermostat failure and not opening if from a cold start it is going to over heat within 5 miles of 10 minutes of idling
check for blocked radiator(internal)cores or radiator fins (external) falling off the cores
The first point of call for me would be the fan drive system

Just replaced the thermostat and now there is no heat inside the cabin ?


Possible trapped air pocket. Set to full heat position, lowest fan speed, remove rad. cap, start engine and let idle for 10 minutes, then hold gas pedal at 1500rpm for two minutes then let idle for two minutes. Shut engine off , let cool for 30 minutes. Top up coolant level and reinstall cap. Drive vehicle, should get heat now.

I replaced the head gasket on my 1987 944 4 cylinder non turbo single cam . The car runs hot if left ilding for more than 10 minutes . If you drive it , it does not over heat . also notice that the second...


the reason that it doesn't overheat when driving is because there is enough air going through the radiator to keep the engine cool, when idling there is no air going through the radiator until the fans are activated ,when this occurs both fans should be working, you have a problem with the one that isn't working,it may be faulty or a loose or disconnected wire could be the problem......hope this helps......cheers.

Immediately after I start my '07 Corolla the idle speed is around at 1,400-1,600. This generally happens in the morning or after work. When that happens if I I let it idle for five minutes it goes down...


This idle condition is normal for a cold start, the computer is controlling the idle for proper fuel burn. It is not necessary to wait five minutes for the idle to come down. Allow about one minute before putting into gear and driving.

Within five minutes, it starts to redline overheat, if you drive 2000rpm, it goes down, but goes back up when you idle


it could be a stuck thermostat, or a plugged radiator or cooling system, check to be sure cooling fans come on when they should or it will overheat. when moving it is air cooled through radiator. thats why it over heats at a stand still. check fans first, it could be a fuse relay or the coolant tempurature if fans do not work or coolant sensor not turning on coolant fans at the proper tempurature.

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.


The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot

My bmw 323i overheats about after 2 hours of driving my heaters work and i dont know why.


check if thermostat is stuck open as too much flow can cause this. start car cold and see how long top radiator hose takes to heat up. shoud stay cold for 3-4 minutes.
if thats ok check thermo fan operation- run can in drive way at idle for 20 + minutes untill fan starts, keep an eye on temp guage.

Loud Vibration from Car When Idle


You need to take the car back to the place that did the exhaust work. What you are hearing is the exhaust system (pipe, muffler, etc.) touching the underside of the car. The exhaust system is mounted along the underside of the car with exhaust hangers (usually made of rubber) also called insulators. The reason you don't hear it when going is because when you step on the gas the engine torques causing the exhaust system to move away from what it is touching.
