Question about Infiniti G35

When the car sits idle the tempature gage goes way up. As soon as the car is moving again the temperature lowers to its normal range. I thought replacing the fan relay may solve the problem

Yes, but first check to see if the fan is working. If the fan is not coming on when the eninge is on and hot, check for voltage at the fan motor connector using a test light. If no voltage, the relay or fuse is likely problem. If there is voltage, replace the fan instead.

    The relay for the fan is usually in a relay box under the hood.

My 2004 chevy tahoe reads that it overheating when in idle only. once starts moving goes to normal tempature reading. Why does it do that? Also notice that it has no engine light coming on when it does...

this is simple, when the engine is idling there is no air going through the radiator to cool the engine ,but when the car is moving there is air going through the & cools the engine, the problem might be that the fans are not coming on that is why the temp. goes up to will need to find out why the fans are not working, maybe a blown fuse or faulty temperature sensor the activates the fans......hope this helps......cheers.

When in an idle position for a long period of time the engin heats to soon as I accelerate it goes to normal tempature

Heating up while idling for long periods is normal, so is cooling a little when accelerating as the water pump is moving the water a bit faster. As long as it drops to normal temp when in normal use it is ok, if it overheats either your thermostat is faulty or your electric fan is not coming on when it should. Does the elecrtic fan ever come on?

Owner of 2004 Ford F250. Check engine light came

Check the fuel regulator at the end of the fuel rail. If if is not functioning properly it can cause the the problem that you are describing. Unfortunately other than doing an R&R with a known good regulator I do not know of a fool-proof test for this component.

My trailblazer has a idling problem, the battery gage is dropping when sitting at lights etc.thought it was altenator but changed it out still having the problem when it is sitting still it is idling to...

Very low idle will cause a very low voltage output from alternator, so nothing unusual about that. At low idle the truck is basically drawing from the battery, not the alternator. As soon as you cure the idle problem, the alternator gauge reading will return to normal.

Problem with idle

engine coolant temp. sensor is probly cracked it will cause the idle to race, car may smoke, and at time could be hard to start.. It is about 15 dollars, and it is located on the right side of the head if you are looking at the engine.. pull it out you will be able to see if the tip of the ceramic tip is cracked.

No Heat in 99 Taurus

Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.
