Try looking up under the dash just above the brake pedal. If you still can't find it turn on the 4 ways because turn signal and 4 ways use the same flasher on that model. You should be able to hear it clicking. Good luck.

Vehicle overheating tips


If your vehicle engine coolant temperature gauge indicates overheating, if you experience a loss of power,or if you hear a loud knocking or pinging noise, the engine has probably overheated. You should follow this procedure............

Pull safe off the road, stop the vehicle and turn on our emergency flasher. Put the transmission in "P" (automatic) or neutral (manual) and apply the parking brake. Turn off the air conditioning if it is being used.

If coolant or steam is boiling out of the radiator or reservoir, stop the engine. Wait until the steam subsides before opening the hood. If there is no coolant boiling over the steam, leave the engine running. CAUTION: To avoid personal injury, keep the hood closed until there is not steam. Escaping steam or coolant is a sign of very hing pressure.

Visually check to see if the engine drive belt (fan belt) is broken or loose. Lock for obvious coolant leaks from the radiator, hoses, and under the vehicle. However, note that water draining from the air conditioning is normal if it has been used. CAUTION: When the engine is running, keep hands and clothing away from the moving fan engine drive belt.

If the engine drive belt is broken or the coolant is leaking, stop the engine immediately and call your mechanic of assistance.

If the engine drive belt is okay and there are no obvious leaks, you may help the engine cool down more quickly by running it at about 1500 rpm for a few minutes with the accelerator pedal lightly depressed.

Check the coolant reservoir. If it is dry, add coolant to the reservoir while the engine is running. Fill it about half full. CAUTION:Do not attempt to remove the radiator cap when the radiator are hot. Serious injury could result from scalding hot fluid and steam blown out under pressure.

After the engine coolant temperature has cooled to normal, again check the coolant level in the reservoir. If necessary, bring it up to half full again. Serious coolant loos indicates a leak in the system. You should have it checked as soon as possible at your mechanic's workshop.

Good luck.

95 Lumina just cut off. It will turn over but wont start. Blows fuse in relay box under the hood while turning it over. Could it be the fuel doing this?


Fuel will not do this. You need to determine which circuit's fuse is blowing and find the fault in that system which may lead to your starting problem. Otherwise, sort out the fuse problem and then start a new course of troubleshooting.

I can't open the hood of my 97 chevy lumina?


Take a flashlight and observe the latch, under the hood, and try to find what exactly is catching on what. Use a flat head screwdriver to pry away whatever is catching, and open your hood.

My radiator fan won't turn off on a 97 mercury Tracer.


its probably a stuck relay locate it and replace it with another most likely that will cure it. check under the hood for a relay center.it should be diagrammed on the lid and use 1 from a different position first pull the one for the cooling fan if it stops that should cure it

Overheating and leaking of my 97 lumina


Do you see and leaks? These are known for their upper intake manifold gaskets. the water pump is like a 40 minute repair, like 13 10mm bolts, just be careful with the gasket. to check the water pump, take off the belt and try to wiggle the water pump pulley to see if there is any plat in the shaft or leakage.

Lose of water


Hi,

One possible explanation is that the leak is small and the water escapes as steam. This then would lead to no immediately visible water leak under the vehicle and being small, the coolant system is still capable of preventing an overheat. Most likely spots would be the junction of the radiator hoses either to the radiator or to the engine side. One possible way to check is use your Toyota as you normally would but before shutting down the engine after a long drive, pop open the hood and check where steam or water might be leaking.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
