When I push the gas on my car it won't go past


The car runs fine after it warms up? Is it running with the check engine light off? But it does come on with the key before the engine is started? If the coolant temperture senser is bad ( or disconnected someway) the check engine light will be on but the car might run OK at normal operating tempertures. Have the car checked for codes. It's OBDI so you might have to find a service provider that can ceck the codes on this pre OBDII car. If it turly runs good at normal operating tempertures and the transmission is'nt low on fluild then the coolant senser does'nt always turn the check engine light on if it's bad and still reading something but wrong. Truly running good and the coolant is full ( all the way). chage the senser and see what happens as thier cheap and easy to change with commn hand tools.654437604.jpg

My 2007 Chevy HHR 2.2L, coolant temp sensor is reading that the coolant temp is 20 degrees warmer than the outside temp after sitting for over 12 hours and the operating temp gets to 214 degrees without...


Sure the engine coolant will be warmer than the outside temperture and if the car has been sitting a long time in cold weather and the outside temperture warms up it could be the other way around. The coolant temperture sensers aren't real accurate as they are a relaitive senser beween hot and cold and the numbers reported don't have to be real just the change from hot to cold and the reching of the coolant to the operating temperture. Noe it the senser doesn't read the opertating temperture coprrectly you'll have all kinds of problems. The therostaste will try to set the temperture of the water to it's set temperture and can open or close completly to get 195 degrees F. Many times if it's too cold then the stat is bad and needs to be replaced This shows up in alot of cars first thing after winter and the first onset of cold weather when the daily tempertures vary the most from day to night.

How many sensors does my 2006 solara have


Dependa on the defination of the word senser. The main sensers that tell the computer what's going on and then thiers another set of sensers that tell the driver what's going on the ten are you just talking about the engine or the transmission or the brakeing system or the aircomditioning system. The ABS braking system has a fluild level senser, a wheel speed senser ( one at each wheel) if your solara has four wheel drive it's got a rear differantial speed senser and a transmission out[ut speed senser. then the sysyem uses sensers in other systems like the bdy control sysyem to get anbieant temperture and alaitude information and the stabitly system has a GPS conection and real speed and direction and conpass readings all used to just get the ABS system working and the traction control system That shares these sensers also has inputs from the engine conrol system as to trottle position and air flow and RPM and may require the engine control system to stall or satutrer the engine or even limit RPM to regain traction or get the vehical headed in the right direction. The air conditioning system depending on the yype of system installed and what factory it was made in and what country it was made for sale in can change the number of sensers that's in it quite highly. Some of the zone indepentant controlled fully automatic systems ( top of the line) can have as many as 5 temperture sensers alone never mind 1 or on some models two sunlight sensers. The freaon pressure sensers as many as four and no less then two. An RPM senser on the compressor clutch and information from the engine system as to throttle position( it turns the compressor off in wide open) and high RPM ( it turns the compressor off to prevent over speeding the compressor and to give the car all the power it can to go fast.) the evaporator temperture as to not allow it to freeze. amoisture senser as to direct dry air onto the windshield to clear it as a safty concern. I've not even begun to tell above the engine or the transmission or the theif recovery systems or the antitheif systems.

P1296 what doses that mean


P1296 for 2002 Vw Passat pertains to a cooling system malfunction. The therostate or the ECT ( temperture senser for coolant for the computer has malfuntioned ) Under heating and overheating and the wire coming off or being pinched to grong of the coolant temperture senser. The senser is located near the therostate housing and it can be damages by overheating ( fan not coming on as needed or freezing ( antifreeze not up to correct level.

Trying to find out where the fuel shut off sensor is located on a 2001 Dodge stratus. It will run for 10 minutes then stall and wont restart for a while and repeats


The auto stutdown relay will turn the fuel pump and fuel injection system off. This relay is marked in the underhood fuse relay panel. The senser that it may be shutting down for may be the coolant temperture senser. There might not be anything wrong with the senser as the therostate could be stuck and the cars overheating ( at the senser). There's an air charge temperture senser too and itr's screwed into the air cleaner housing or hose and if it gets too hot, or reports faulsely that it's too hot it'll shut down. But let's say that it's not too hot and the coolant is full and the cooling system is working right ( the readitor fan comes on when it's hot and shuts off as the fan brings the temperture down low enough that the fan is'nt needed. ) Their are parts in the ingtion that'll do this too. the coil. the computer, the distrubuter pickup and the crank and cam sensers. These things if they drop out won't nessarily turn the check engine light on but, will show on a licve time scanner as not putting a singnal out as they arn't working. The fuel pump can overheat as if the fuel filter may be partly clogged andf the pump is trying too hard to make pressure and the pump finally gets hot enough to stop. If the check engine light is on with the engine running it's likly that the codes stored in the computer will give a good ides as to why it's shutting down.

Replacement of intake gasket vortec 305


they leak often as the gasket fails the replacement from felpro hasn't ever failed for me. The job is that the bolts out and put them back in. things to be careful abut are drain the coolant first and only change the oil when your finished and start and warm the engine for just a few minutes with out the coolant in it and then shut it off for a fem minutes and then go over all the bolts again with the tourque wrench as the heat and cool will seat things a little then after its sit at least another 10 minutes put in your coolant, Be careful with the EGR valve too as it has a temperture senser thats easy to break in the side of it and there not avaable as a replacement part and their real expensive if you can find one. the coolant temperture senser is easy to break off too, but I recomend a new one of these anyway. If the engine has ever overheated at all the senser and the therostate should be changed as general service anyway. as their both easyly damaged by overheating.

This Summer Engine hesitation during warm up. Fine after warm


Your right ! The coolant temperture senser is ( bent ) Lying to the computer to the real temperture of the coolant. mixture wrong and it runs bad till warmed up. Senser is cheap and easy to install. it won't code the check engine light unless it goes plumb open or shorted and doesnt happen too much. newer cars and trucks they fixed this and the newer computers conpare the air charge temperture senser, the coolant tenperture senser, the ambiant temperture senser and the interior temperture senser and it knows how long its beenoff and the newer ones still even know that time it is and gat to know its running pattern if it has one. So it tunes its self to the finest end for your pattern and remembers it. Some thing doesn't seen right and someone of these doesnt make sense it goes on its patteren and runs just fine guessing whitch sensers to believe and which to take with a grain of salt. It does it a few times too many it remembers which senser is the lyer dis regards it and turns the check engine light on uses the rest of the good sensers to run on and goes on its merry way telling you to take me to your dealer to get another car or be fixed. They hope you'll get another car so they can soak you again fixs your old one and make a ton trashing it so the government can pay them a bonus to get you in there to keep the ecomomy moving

94 lumina will not start after getting warm. will turn over but fuel injectors dont work. works during cold weather but not in hot weather.


The check engine light should be on with the engine running. The coolant temperture senser may be open at some temps the fastest way to test this is to change the senser ( it's cheap and a high failure rate part all auto parts stores will haveplenty of this high failure part in stock and they fail many ways. If the car ever overheated it's damaged or truly bad. A very good one will optimize fuel mileage so if it's suspect change it anyway as money well spent a working but wrong senser can cost alot of gas on any fuel injection car or truck, You get what you pay for in temp sensers and the brand name ones are better. All of them are suspect to be bad even when new and ohm test at temperture charts are is repair manuels. Crank sensers and cam sensers also get hot and quit they cost more are harder to change and fail more on the 3.8 motor than the 3.1 or the 3.4. Igiton modules do this too but it sounds like its been doing this awhile and modules and crank sensers don't stay half bad very long. they stop altogrther. Temp sensers can stay bad and work wrong. If you can get a scanner hooks to the car on data stream the senser may show room temp when cold but as it heats up goes up then to -34 thats open the system doesn't know that to do as the air charge temp senser doesn't agree and the system fails to start and will check as flooded. Flooring the gas and hoding it there may start it anyway. The trottle position senser were to show open thats the clear flood mode and the injectors won't fire. Tps voltage should show .5 volt les than 1 volt at idel (it'll start) and 5 volts at full throttle or nearly. if it shows with a scanner of a voltmeter on the center wire 5 volts or 0 it won't start. Coolant senser fails more often and is cheaper
