My 1983 toyota ran hot now it wont start


a malfunctioning coolant temperature sensor will often send incorrect information to the vehicle's on-board computer. As a result, when the vehicle reaches a normal operating speed the sensor may relay an incorrect signal to the computer that the engine is overheating resulting in engine shutdown. The vehicle will not be able to start again until the engine has completely cooled. also check coolant level and make sure the coolant radiater fans are working. check for any leak in coolant system, that would cause car to overheat.

W\hen car gets hot and we turn it off it wont start again until it cools down. It takes about 13 to 20 min before it will restart.??? Please help me


{: ) The engine control module is programmed to protect the engine by disabling the starting system whenever it detects that the engine temperature is beyond safe limits. Depending on how fast the engine cools, it will resume normal starting after cooling down for a while.
A diagnostic scan tool readout can give you a quick idea about the possible causes of your engine overheating. For the meantime, as soon as you can start the vehicle after cooling down, drive the vehicle and try to turn off or minimize the loads , and avoid traffic sitting as possible, just enough time to reach home or a nearby service shop.
There are several things that need to be checked:
The coolant level and quality, and check for signs of coolant leaks.
The cooling fans,are they operating as designed? Check for fan blades damage or cracks.
The water pump could be faulty. Check also the engine belt.
The engine oil.
If the engine temperature sensor is faulty, it can also bring inaccurate signals and may affect operation of the cooling fans.
Check fuses and relays that power the cooling fans.

Heater donot get hot whil running


It could be a plugged heater core or heater control problem. I assume the blower is working, but the air is cold. The first thing to check is the coolant level, make sure there is coolant in the resivoir. Next see if the temerature gauge reaches the normal operating temperature range. If the gauge reads cold most of the time, it would tell you that the thermsotat is faulty and not allowing the engine to reach full operating temperature. If your car doesn't have a temp gauge, the blue cold engine light might stay on for an extended period of time. The thermostat is supposed to not allow coolant flow in the radiator until the engine reaches operating temperature. If you drive the car for a couple of minutes, from cold start, the radiator or upper hose should be cool until the engine reaches operating temp.

You probably need to bleed the cooling system properly.

Open the cooling system bleeder screws.

Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 coolant mixture until coolant runs freely out of bleeder screws.
Close the cooling system bleeder screws
Install the coolant pressure cap
Start the engine.
Run the engine at 2,000 - 2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature. (midway on gauge)
Allow the engine to idle for 3 minutes.
Shut the engine off.
Allow the engine to completely cool.
Top off the coolant as necessary.
Run engine again at 2000 - 2500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature.
Allow engine to idle until cooling fans come on. It should come on with the gauge about 3/4 of the way to red. - if it gets to where is touches the red, shut down immediately.
When the fan comes on, put your hand behind the fan and observe the temperature of the air coming from the fan. It should feel hot. If it is blowing cold air, the coolant is not circulating through the radiator like it should. This could be caused by lots of things including an improper/defective thermostat, corroded water pump impeller, or a blown head gasket.

I have a ford taurus that the cooling fans will only run when when the ac is on 2002/ engine 3.0 efi/


The cooling fans on this vehicle won't come on unless the a/c is on or until the engine coolant temperature reaches about 220 degrees. Once the coolant has reached this temperature the fans will come and and run until the engine cools down to about 210 degrees and they will then turn off until the temperature climbs up again. The fans usually aren't on at all at highway speeds because enough air is being forced through the radiator to keep everything cool. The true test of cooling fan operation is to allow the car to idle in park with both the a/c and defrost turned off and let it run until the fans come on. When The temp gauge reaches about 3/4 of the way up, give or take a bit, the fans should come on. Keep an eye on the gauge so the engine doesn't overheat just in case there really is a fan control problem but I'd say you'll most likely find that the fans are working properly since they do come on for the a/c. Hope this helps!

My cooling fan does not come on when car is started.both the ac and cooling fan comes on when ac is started


The cooling fan is required to operate when the engine temperature rises above the maximum operating temperature threshold.
After the car is started, it will usually take some time for this temperature to be reached.
Ensure fan runs when fan control temperature sensor switch demands.
