The fan wont work car does not get hot shut off


cooling fan works on a temp sensor in the engine block. it only turns on when the temp reaches a set limit and shuts off when it gets below a set limit.. cooling fan components are , fans, fan relay , and temp sensor . best way to test the fans would be to let the car set running and watch the temp till it goes up to 185 -195 deg. at this time the fans should turn on and the thermostat should open and cool the engine back down. also when ever the air conditioning is on so should the cooling fans be on. if the fans do not run the check all components till you find the broken one. fan relay and air conditioning relay are separate but work the same. and will interchange

Quits after warm up wont restart


sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, fuel pumps will usually get hot and then shut off allowing it to sit 30 mins lets the pump cool down allowing it to start pumping, the way you can test it is get a can of starting fluid the next time it quits raise your hood and spray some fluid down into the throttle body and if it starts and then dies it is most likely your fuel pump, hope this helps.

I have the same exact problem, once the 2002 Buick rendezvous gets hot it won't start till it cools down. Forget about any diagnostic codes, Buick dealer told me there is nothing he can find. The fan...


Hi usually the symptoms your having are a result of the oxygen sensor(or lambda sensor for its technical name) being at fault.

now the reason it points to this being at fault is that it only starts working when the engine is near normal temp then if the car wont start till its cooled down then this is because the sensor then stops working when its cooled down so your car will run again until it gets hot,

you need to check where the sensor is located in the exhaust if it comes before the catalytic converter then the chances are its the sensor at fault but if it comes after the cat then it could be the cat that is at fault.

my best guess would be the sensor as your car is playing up exactly as if this sensor was not working.

i hope this is some help to you

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too

Wont start


Take it to a shop for diagnostics. It could be alot of things, but is probably a faulty fuel pump.

Fuel pumps usually fail once the car gets to operating temperature and then they sieze up if they are faulty.

Although it could be alot of other things, faulty computer, to a clogged fuel filter.
