They are idiots! Start with a good cooling system flush and make sure the system is clean and the coolant is diluted properly(50/50 or 60/40 is usually real good. Summertime coming, 50/50 is ideal). Double check to make sure you cooling fans are coming on and especially with the A/C on. Look in between the radiator and condensor and make sure you have no obstructions like plastic or paper bags, trash, etc.. These are the major contributors. Let me know what you find and we can look further if needed.

Check temp gauge if It doesn't get to normal heat range it won't idle. Your thermostat needs replacing.

Chevy Malibu Cold Idle Problem


Check the water coolant thermostat. If it is stuck in the "open" position you are heating up all the water in the coolant system and this will take time. The thermostat keeps the water in the engine until warmed up to almost normal running temperature, only then does it allow the coolant to enter the radiator.

2002 Dodge 1500 quad cab 4x4 with 7'6" Meyer snowplow. Trouble keeping truck temp normal on highway. Any suggesttions?


your plow is blocking the air flow to the raditor thus the temp change. if it is running to high for you. install a 160 degree thermo stat. still warm enough but will lower the temp. it may be able to stablize the temp also at speed.

Jetta overheats when on highway


Yes, the flush and new anti-freeze well help greatly. i would also inspect tech thermostat and water pump as well. replace both if found to be defective.

check the operational value of the cooling fans as well. they should cycle in intervals and, run when the AC is activated.

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


I would start with replacing your tranny fluid. black is no good. your tranny should hold about 7 qts of fluid. The tranny fluid runs through your radiator to help keep it cool. If your thermostat is stuck closed your eng coolant won't circulate and the coolant will get hotter inside your radiator. thus making your tranny fluid hotter and breaking it down. After time it will turn black from getting too hot. Let your car warm up to normal operating temperture then grab your upper radiator hose. It should be very warm. If not your thermostat is stuck closed.
