I have a 2001 mercury grand marquis ls. it overheats when im driving it but don't shows it on the temperature hand ..what is the problem ??


The temperature switch on the side of the upper radiator hose is not working. That is, if the engine is hot. Boiling over - need to check thermostat. Grab on to upper hose (should be hot) than with engine off, grab bottom radiator hose. It also should be same temperature as top. If so, thermostat ok. Electric radiator fan - turn Ac on. Fans should run. No, check fuses & relay. Mechanical fan - with engine off, the blade should be stiff to turn. Easy, replace fan clutch. Usually, low level of water is most common. Wish you well.

Fan motor on jeep cherokee 2001 doesnt come on replace relay same problem why?


Have you checked the temperature sensor? It is usually mounted on the bottom end of the radiator. This senses the temperature and as soon as it gets too hot the fan turns on. The fan will not turn on unless the water in the radiator reaches a critical temperature.
You can check the sensor by removing and shorting out the two wires connected to the sensor. If you short them out the fan should work.
To check the temp sensor itself, remove it from the vehicle and connect the two connectors to an ohm meter (multimeter set to the lowest scale), then place the sensor in a container with boiling water. After a few seconds the ohm meter should show a reading near to or at zero. Remove the unit from the boiling water, and as soon as it cools down, the meter should return to infinity reading (shown as a 1 on the left side of the screen (digital meter) or infinity (needle on the left side of the scale on an analog meter)

Overheating


That is normal cooling fan operation. the fans are computer controlled and not turned on until the engine reaches the pre programmed temperature, that is about 185-195F

My 94 Blazer (125,000 miles) has run great since I bought it 5 years ago but recently developed a problem. When I drive it on warm/hot days, it starts right up when cold but after driving even for a short...


Hot starting problems are usually fuel related. When a hot engine is shut off, the temperature of the engine and everything on it continues to rise for awhile as the engine undergoes a period of "heat soak." This can cause fuel to boil inside the carburetor bowl, fuel lines and fuel filter. When you attempt to restart the engine, "vapor lock" obstructs the flow of fuel and the engine doesn't want to start.

This is much less of a problem on fuel injected engines because the fuel is usually under much higher pressure inside the injectors and fuel line. Even so, a fuel line routed near an exhaust manifold or a fuel rail that's exposed to a lot of heat may still suffer the same kind of problems.

Heat soak problems such as these can sometimes be cured by wrapping insulation around affected fuel lines, and/or installing an insulating spacer or heat shield under the carburetor.
A Seasonal Problem

Hard hard starting tends to be a seasonal problem, but may be worse in the early months of spring when refiners are switching fuel blends. Gasoline refiners produce fuel with a slightly lower volatility rating (called "Reed vapor pressure") during hot summer months because lower volatility fuel is less likely to boil and cause hot starting problems. During the winter, they switch to a higher volatility fuel because it makes cold starting easier. But if you still have "winter" grade fuel in your tank when warm spring weather arrives, you may experience some hot starting problems. The problem will go away, however, as soon as the refiners in your area switch to their summer grade fuel.

Removed my thermostat and tested it in boiling water and it was opening correctly so I re-installed it. After that the water in the radiator boils, and move to the reserve tank, without the electric fans...


your cooling sustem is airbound.i suspect you have little or no warm air coming out of heater.while filling with engine running remove outlet heater hosefrom heater core.this alone will purge 90% of air from system.

Engine temp goes up to 230 degrees


It's actually normal for engine temps to go up to 220 deg. F or 230 deg. F in the summer time, even in normal engines that run at 196 deg. F typically.

This happened to me with no malfunctions on my 1997 Cadillac Deville, yesterday.

Actually, engines run more efficiently at higher temperatures like this.

Just make sure your coolant is topped off and that it fluctuates between lower temperatures and this high reading.

This is a normal temperature in my experience for GM vehicles.

Blowing oil and smoke out of valve cover. radiato is boiling over


There are several things that can be causing the problems. Blowing smoke and oil out of the valve cover is usually a sign that the engine rings are worn out and/or the PVC valve is not working correctly to remove the gases from the engine case. The radiator boiling over can be from several causes. A bad radiator cap can cause the engine to boil over. Lack of antifreeze can also do the same thing since the later model smog engines run at a higher temperature and use higher pressure radiator caps. A cracked head can also cause the radiator and engine to overheat. This can be checked at a local parts store with a radiator checker that will show if there is exaust gases in the radiator when the engine is running. Worse case senerio is you blew a head gasket out and your oil will look like bubbly milky creamy in color from the water that has gotten into and mixed with the oil from the engine. You are going to have to do some trouble shooting on this one to find the answers. Good Luck, RAC

Heater does not work. Truck dies at stops


As far as heat goes I would replace your Thermostat and that should stop it from blowing cold due to the fact its probably stuck open unless your heater switcher arnt switching from vent to heat when you turn them. Does your temp gauge show your truck is running cooler then it use too? As far as it dying when you come to a stop that might be a few things I would check idle screw first then plugs clean or replace then Go to throttle position sensor (TPS) or AIR TEMPERATURE SENSORS (IAT) sensor. They somtimes wont turn your service engine light on but still will cause problems if they need cleaned.
