Not a solution but I have had this issue twice now. The car will automatically shut the a/c system off and not read the coolant temperature to protect from overheating. Just over a year ago was the first time I had this issue and the catalytic converter was changed (under warranty thank goodness). Haven't taken my car in yet for this second similar issue.

I would immeditately check and make sure that there is coolant in the radiator. Do it after the engine cools down.

Trouble in cold weather


You may be correct with what you think the problem may be, but another good thing to check is your coolant level. A low coolant level could cause false readings from you coolant temp sensor, which in turn will cause an engine hunting condition that you described.

My 1992 lexus es 300 overheats after i get off the freeway. the temp gauge sits in the normal position until i get off the freeway. i run the heat on hot and at full blast regardless of the temp outside...


Sounds like you could be low on coolant, even more so because the air starts to cool down, check coolant level with engine cold, never open a radiator when hot.

I have a 1993 Acura Ledgend. For some reason my heater does not continue to blow hot air, it does for a few minutes and then begain to blow cold air. It does this often now. It works and then it blows cold...


first check to see that you coolant level is full, check it after the engine has cooled down,so there is no pressure in the system. otherwise you possibly have a head gasket in the early stage of failure

A/C hot and cold air....


Technical Information: When the engine overheats (goes above 220 to 230 degrees), the ECM (Engine Contro Module) will disable the AC (won't let the compressor engage). This is a safety feature of the EMS (Engine Management System) to reduce potential damage to the engine from an overheat condition. Check your coolant level in the radiator & reseviore -- Low coolant level can produce the symptom you describe -- if low, top them off. Inspect your radiator hoses/cooling system for any signs of leakage (crusty deposits of dried coolant). Wherever you find this, that's where it's leaking. If you don't find any signs of leakage, replace the thermostat (& gasket if required (as a precaution) anyway. When the engine overheats, both cooling fans should come ON HIGH! If they aren't/don't, something's wrong and you need to find the cause. Every two to three years the cooling system should be flushed and inspected to ensure proper operation/condition and system protection. Overheating can seriously damage the engine. $$$$. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

NO HEAT 2000 buick lesabre


If this Buick has a 3.8L, there are air bleed valves that must be opened to ensure the cooling system does not develop an air lock. (Wich would cause a no heat condition). If the thermostat is functioning properly you may want to check if there is flow through the heater core. Check by feeling each heater hose at the firewall with engine at opperating temp. They should both be hot and close in temp. A noticable temp difference in the two hoses would most likely be a flow problem, either from an air lock, bad t-stat or plugged heater core. Good luck.

Chevy S10 overheated, now heat doesn't work, leaking coolant


When an engine is overheating and then the temp drops on the guage, it's usually a sign that the coolant is not touching the temp sensor. There's no coolant in the engine. Putting water in the overflow tank won't solve this. Take the radiator cap off after the engine cools and put coolant in the radiator. you might have to crank the engine and do this several times, as the engine can develop air pockets that won't allow the coolant to travel inside the engine. If you don't see any leaks, and it still uses coolant, you've probably got a blown head gasket. Check for water on the plugs, check cylinder compression. If it slowly uses coolant, try putting a large box of pepper in the radiator or some of that radiator seal copper flakes.

My '97 Tahoe overheated and now it won't start


Probably just low on coolant causing air pockets. Start it up with the radiator cap of and add coolant, then check to see if the water pump, intake gaskets, or coolant bypass connector on passenger front corner of the intake manifold is leaking.
