2003 Audi A6 temp goes to 120 overheats then down to 90 and oil symbols comes also

I would check the thermostat first. Remove the thermostat and place it in a pan of water on the stove. Place a thermometer in the water with the thermostat and slowly increase the temperature until you have reached 194 degrees Fahrenheit or 90 degrees Celsius. Watch closely for the thermostat to open slightly. If it opens then the thermostat is good. If it does not open, replace it. Try that first and see what you come up with.

My Mitsubishi eclipse 2003 overheats when I stand in traffic. Temperature goes up, like crazy. At the shop they said it's thermostat, so I changed it. Everything is still the same. Plus in winter is...

The two statements are contradictory. The thermostat should assist in warming up the engine in the cold but if it is stuck closed it would overheat but warm up quickly. Overheating in the summer could be the fan not kicking in in traffic. You can check a thermostat by boiling it in water and observing the temperature at which it starts to open. This information should be stamped on the unit. You can also watch the fan to see if it kicks in with the engine idling when hot. If it does not it could be the thermostatic switch or the fan itself.

Hi, my girlfriend's 2001 Eclipse 6 cyl. is quickly overheating when stopped at red lights with the A/C on. With the A/C off, it does not overheat. When it does overheat, and the stop light turns...

Check to see if your radiator coolant fan runs with the A/C on. It should run constantly with the A/C on, and even with the A/C off the fan should come on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees or better and stay on until it cools down below 200 degrees.
The problem is that you're not getting enough ambient air through the radiator.

Installed a thermostat in a 2004 Chevrolet Classic 2.2L and the vehicle overheats. Did I install it backwards? There was previously no thermostat installed in vehicle, how do I know which way to install...

there is a more solid side to the thermostat, and this side goes towards the engine, away from radiator.

I suggest that you get your radiator flow tested, there was a problem in the past. You must have the correct thermostat, or suffer premature engine failure. Emission controls do not shift to normal until near 190 degrees....

Get it working correctly, or be unhappy.

My car every morning starts to overheat, while

Wrong thermostat. There are varying degrees of operating temperatures for thermostats. Example: 180 Degrees, 190 Degrees. The one you have isn't opening soon enough. If you replace it with a cooler grade thermostat, your problem should go away.

Hope that helps you understand what's going on. Thanks for using FixYa.

How can you tell if you have a bad theromast

First you need to see if the engine is overheating or if the engine is running cool. The job of the thermostat is to maintain a set operating temp, usually 190-200 deg f. If it overheats everytime it is ran then your thermostat may be stuck closed. If you start it up and it heats up to like 220 deg and then goes back down to 190 that tells you that the thermostat is sticking closed and poping open when its really hot. If you cant get to 190 deg f that means that the thermostat is stuck open.

How do you know if your engine is overheating? the coolant says 210 degrees wut do i do

When your engine is operating normally, the temp on the gauge should be between 190 and 225. The thermostat is set to open at 190 and this controls minimum engine temp. If you sit in traffic the temp will climb to 225 and then the cooling fan will begin to operate to make sure that you don't overheat.You know that water boils at 212 but you have to add 10 degrees for every pound of pressure the rad cap is set to. Also your coolant has antifreeze in it which raises the boiling point even more. A normal overheat condition of your engine would be 300 or more. Does this help?

First thing to check are the engine's thermostat. It should open around 190 degrees. Does your instrument panel have a coolant temperature gauge or just an idiot light? If the gauge is in the middle third of it's sweep, the thermostat is OK. If the gauge reads low, have the thermostat replaced.
The second item to check in in the HVAC box below the dashboard. If the Fresh air/Recirculate door will not shut, cold outside air is continually mixed, which will degrade heating.
