This is a safety feature if the ECM detects the motor is over a certain temp it will shut down the system so you don't damage your motor. Have the Temp sensor checked and if temperature gauge is going over halfway up between C and H check the water pump and Thermostat to make sure they are working correctly.

This is called heat saturation and is an indication of the starter beginning to fail. Replace the starter. Let me know if you need instructions or anything else.

My thermostat will turn off when my truck gets hot. 1500 dodge ram 1996. I just replaced it. The hose going into the thermostat is supper hot. Why would it not be working?


What do you mean it will not turn off?
The temperature in your your video is just fine.
The hose going to the thermostat should be hot and stay hot once the truck gets up to operating temperature.

Starters getting really hot, why?


In simple terms, the starter gets hot from a high amount of voltage flowing thru it.
The why part is another thing.
Could be a bad connection between the starter and the battery including the ground. Could be a problem with the engine not wanting to turn over. For example, if you broke a timing belt the engine may lock up.

AC BLOWS HOT. POWER TO COMPRESSOR AND FREON FULL


I recently had this problem with my car. If the heater temperature controller fails, there may be heat whenever the blower runs. To test this, turn on the car when it is not warmed up. Immediately turn on the A/C. If it blows cold, the A/C is good. If as the water temperature gets hot, the air gets hot, the temperature controller is stuck on the HOT position. A good auto store can get you the correct part and show you how to install it.

1989 Toyota Camery Wont Turn Over


If you can turn the engine by hand, your starter has gone bad. Cables get hot because energy normally used to turn starter cannot and has to go somewhere! If you can't turn by hand, it's possible engine is seized.

02 camaro wont start fuel pump relay or fuel pump ? How to tell ? The car started right up then died & wont start ! I dont hear the noise from fuel pump when I turn key !!


Take the fuel line off before the filter and turn the key on and see if you get any fuel out of the line. If you don't get any fuel unplug the wire connector to the fuel pump turn the key on and see if you get a hot wire going to the pump. if you get a hot wire then it is your pump. If you do not get any hot wire then it should be the relay.
