Hi,

Have you Checked the Coolant Level?

Does Radiator Fan Comes on , when it should be. You also need to make sure that the Speed of the Fan should be Fine.

Run the engine until hot and then let it idle. Watch the temperature rise and at the same time watch/listen for the cooling fan to come on.It should come on at about 100degC and go off at 90degC.If it does and the temp guage rises and falls at the same temperatures then you have no fault.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Sounds like the thermostat is sticking on the car. Replace the thermostat then the car should run at normal temperature. Also the car should be under warranty. So I would take to dealer and have them look at it at no charge.

Why porsche cayenne 2009 reverse camera cover is not opening


Is the camera activating? Is the screen going completely black or do you see the measurement marks on the screen when putting it in reverse? Might be a blown fuse, faulty power wire to the camera or simply that the cover is physically stuck by dirt or something.

Thermostat may not be working properly, hot coolant has to circulate via the heater core in order to get heat. Normally operation temperation should be 180 to 200 degrees.

MY TEMP GAUGE ON 2005 TDI 130 PASSAT IS RISING NEARER 100oC WHEN CRUISING AT HIGHER SPEEDS, IT COMES BACK DOWN TO 90 WHEN SPEED REDUCED, COOLANT LEVELS FINE AND WATER LEVELS OK, ANY IDEAS PLEASE?


100 degrees is the normal operating temperature for the motor. If it goes higher than that, the thermostate needs to be replaced. The temperature will be higher on the highway because the engine is producing more heat energy due to the higher load on the motor. Diesels idle cooler and the engine will cool down at idle or lower speeds. That is why it is best not to idle your car for long periods of time because this will cause deposits in the engine and glaze the cylinders. The engine is working normal from what you described and there is no reason to worry. I hope this helped.

Fans do not stay on long enough to cool engine adequately. they only run for about fifteen seconds and then turn off


I'm not sure if you got my first posting so I'm gonna send it again.
Coolant type should be the pink one , make sure its the correct mixture. Get shop manual and make sure thermostat is the correct one for your vehicle and is correctly installed. Don't forget to check the condition of the water pump/ and its belt. If A-ok at this point here's how it works. thermostat controls engine temperature, coolant temperature sensor (CTS) tells ECU to turn on/off the fan/fans via a relay, relay does the deed.Your gonna need some type of temperature measuring gauge a electronic device is prefered and a digital volt meter (DVM). Some DVM have a temperature probe feature. Use the temperature measuring gauge to see if the thermostat is operating within the specified range. Then use your DVM and shop manual to see if the CTS is telling the ECU to turn on the fan/fans via the rely and if the rely is responding accordingly. I've done two of these vehicles with milage above say 88k and both of them I;ve replaced the relay on. Good luck and keep me posted.

Overheating when outside temp goes above 90 degrees F


on GM vehicles they still use clutch fans and when sitting at an idle for a while the fan is not pulling enough air through the radiator and condensor so therefor the a/c starts to put out warmer air and the coolant temp. will rise a little bit. You could try replaceing the fan clucth and see if that helps any.
