My 97 Acura cl 3.0 over heats while stopped but when I drive off it cools back down is that my fan switch making that happen?


no, it's more than likely your thermostat not opening and closing when it is supposed to....you could also have low coolant which i would check if you haven't already

R reg toyota previa over heats. had new pressure cap n tested the head gasket so both of them are fine. is it likely to be the water pump? as its worse wen Im startin n stopping but seems fine wen Im...


It appears that you have a viscous fan hub driving the fan or should I say failing to drive the fan. The fix is to replace it . If you have electric fans then there is a problem in the temp sensor system and the fans are not cutting in on temperature The problem you state is indicated by the fact that when driving there is sufficient air through the radiator to remove the heat from the radiator ..but when driving slow there is no air flow because the fan is not drawing air through the radiator and the temperature climbs until over heat is reached . Typical indicators of fan speed problem is overheating at stop sign/lights, slow heavy traffic driving, slow up hill driving, and rapid cool down as road speed is increased , the faster the speed the cooler the motor

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

When idling my jeep overheats. The cooling fan is running and it speeds up when temperature goes up. The temperature gets close to 260 degrees and the engine tries to stall. when I start moving it cools...


At idling speed an engine does build up a lot of heat and the cooling fan will kick in. In slow moving traffic or traffic jams the temperature gauge can touch the red - particularly on hot days. The reason it cools down when you start moving is because of the air flow through the radiator.

Presumably there are no leaks from the cooling system otherwise you would have mentioned it. In normal circumstances the fan will not be running as you are driving at speed, as the air-flow through the radiator is sufficient to cool things. The fan only kicks in to get rid of excess heat - and this usually occurs at idling speed or after you have parked the car.

If the fan is running all the time as you drive, this points to either a fault in the fan switch, or the car is running too hot. presumably in normal driving the fan isn't running and the temperature gauge reads normal?

It is common - in stationary traffic many cars overheat (particularly big engined models) try to stall and 'cut out'. Restarting can be difficult until the engine cools down.

Is your car overheating in normal driving conditions or just at idle speed? Overheating in normal driving conditions can be caused by things like a failing water pump, blocked radiator, collapsed hose, faulty thermostat or, in the worst case scenario, cylinder head problems.

Overheating at idling speed is 'common'. Check your coolant level. If your car isn't using/losing coolant then there probably is no major problem. You can flush out the cooling system and refill with new coolant - and also check your radiator. Are the cooling fins crumbling with age? Or maybe they're partly clogged with insects and debris from the road? A blast with a hosepipe wil sort that out ..

The question is how much does your car overheat in normal driving? If it doesn't .. it appears as though you have nothing to worry about as such. Most cars have 2 speed fans... the 2nd faster stage kicks in at some point dependant on engine temperature. Perfectly normal.

Wheel wobble. Looking at replacing most all the bushings relaying to the suspension. any advise, or maybe a good tutorial site to help me along?


Have your front suspension checked by someone you trust. there are so many things that can cause the symptoms you're experiencing. shocks, balljoints, bearings, steering stabilizer, bushings.

Check your steering stability bar I had the same problem and it turned out that I had bent that bar.

The death wobble is basically when you are driving your lifted jeep down the road and the front end starts to shake violently. It can happen at virtually any speed, though mostly above 40 mph or so, and is a frightening experience, especially for those witnessing it for the first time. Now it doesn’t throw you off the road or anything … the front end just shakes. And the only way to stop it is to slow down and pull over. So it wasn’t that hard to get used to at first. But as it happened more and more, it seemed to get more and more out of control.

Also, I suggest check this articles:
- Cures and Fix for Death Wobble, and
- Fixing Jeep Death Wobbles

I'm owner from '93 ZJ, and solve it with this clues.

Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

I am not sure if the radiator fan is working on my 92 v6 camry its not over heating but never see or hear the fan running is there a fuse or relay that might have gone out. I cant even see any wires that...


The radiator fan in the 92-95 models of V-6 Toyota and Lexus vehicles is a weird design. The fan is not electric but runs off the power steering pump. The power steering pump moves fluid through hoses to the radiator fan, thereby creating its rotation. A sensor monitors coolant temperature and signals a solenoid on the power steering pump when more or less cooling is needed. The power steering pump then speeds up or slows down to provide more or less fan speed.

This system seems to work pretty well. However, there is a connector that goes to the power steering pump that is critical to proper operation. In engine work this connector often gets overlooked when reassembly is done. This results in the fan running at constant speed and not increasing rotation when more cooling is needed. This becomes a problem primarily when the car is idling or moving at a slow speed.

If your car is not overheating in these situations, the fan is probably operating okay.

Front end shimmy


Sounds like you may have some large tires on the Jeep. Check the stabilizer rod that attaches to the frame and down to the front differential. It may be loose or have worn bushings. This would cause the front end to shake at times. You probably get this problem to go away by applying the brakes a little or slowing down quickly to a certain speed. If that is the case check the rod and bushings. Good luck.
