1994 Buick Lesabre calls for a 160 or 180 degree thermostat


that is the opening temperature for the thermostat
it opens at 160 degrees which is good for hot weather operation or another with 180 degrees which is good for cold weather operations
The differences is 160 opens sooner to start coolant circulation to keep operating temperature low where the 180 keeps shut and allows the operating temperature to rise up as soon as it open the cold air will quickly cool the coolant.

Door will not close


check for operation of the latching mechanism..sometimes the grease on these gets really stiff in cold weather..when this happens the latch will not operate properly..spray with hot water to warm up the mechanism and then lubricate with wd40..as for the door sticking..rub dish soap or a soap bar on the weatherstripping..this will help to keep the door from sticking to the body in freezing temperatures.. if youre dealing with ice..use water at room temperature and pour it out over the door seal slowly..let it melt the ice out..do not use HOT water as this will break your windows due to extreme temperature change..good luck..

Hard starting in cold weather, turns over but does not start easily. Starts fine in warmer weather


check if the car have the thermostat in the cooling system, because in cold weather the thermostat close the water flow in the cooling system (radiator, head of the motor) and the car gets temperature faster to warm the engine to operational temperature.

Engine temperature gauge low


I would suspect the thermostat first.

2000 malibu runs hot if not warmed up


How do you know it gets hot? Are you going by the temperature gauge on the dash? Or have you checked under the hood and found out the engine really is running hot? ...Reason I ask is, something just doesn't sound right in your description. After just 5 minutes from starting and driving away, the engine would not yet be at normal operating temperature. That would explain the heater not yet warm. But the temp. gauge says hot?
If so, I would replace the temperature sending unit on the engine. the one for the dash gauge, and see if that was the problem-not reading the temp. accurately.
Couple of other things: Are you sure you got all the air out of the coolant system? Start the car with the radiator cap off and let it run until the engine is warmed up fully, then shut it off and install the cap. Does your reservoir tank stay about half full where it should be, between the full-hot and full-cold marks?
If your problem persists. I would have the coolant system pressure tested, and see if you could get a true temperature reading of the coolant when it seems to be running hot.
Good luck.

I can start and drive for an hour or so but in really hot weather my car will start running slow then stalls and when you go to restart it it will start then shake real bad and stall again. i have replaced...


Make sure that you don't have to much antifreeze in coolant system. A 50/50 mix is to much and doesn't keep the system from freezing or from overheating. You need something like a 30/70 mixture, then make sure that your coolant system doesn't have any air bubbles in it. You do this by starting the car with the radiator cap OFF, let it run until it reaches operating temperature. You should see a few bubbles, it might even belch up some coolant. After it has stopped making bubbles and you can see the coolant flowing in the radiator top it off with warm water. Even if you just fill a couple jugs and put them in the sun before you start. If the water is to cold it can damage your coolant system. Hope this helps let me know.

2004 ram3500 transmission slippage when warm


Hi, transmission slipping normally does not occur when the transmission is warm, as warm temperatures favor proper working of the automatic transmission systems. Nonetheless, if problems such as, broken transmission bands, gears or torque conversion already exist, then the transmission might slip even in warm temperatures. Another situation may arise, if the fluid suffers from contraction in cold weather and gradually the weather warms up sufficiently, to expand the internal parts and fluids. Then due to cold weather, a small transmission problem might occur. However, the problem may be too small to affect the vehicle. However, warm weather cannot be directly linked to transmission slipping.

It hesitate to start up in cold weather i have to give a pump of


There is a cold start valve srpay extra fuel at the start to assist the start in the cold weather. If it is not open during the start then this is why there is a problem. This valve is operated by an electric coil. Even checking the resistance reading, but the valve is still not opening due to being stuck. Power is only coming to the valve during the start and the temperature is cold reported by the coolant temperature sensor . If the coolant temperature sensor is bad reporting warm temperature then the valve will not open. The temp sensor is less expensive than the valve, so it is an economical way to tackle the sensor first. Good luck.
