Question about 2007 Toyota Prius

1 Answer

A/C fans We own an 2007 Prius with 34,000 miles. On a recent road trip, we noticed that the center fans on the dashboard, plus the fan(s) underneath the dash for the floorboards, were no longer blowing air. The fans on the outside edges of the dashboard and just below the windshield work fine. And yes, all the ports for the fans are in the open position. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions as to what the problem could be? Thank you.

How do i change the coolant temp sensor in my 2005 toyota prius


I have a 2004 Prius and have a scan gauge. I constantly watch engine coolant temperature. I noticed it being very erratic in the summer (going up to around 180 deg F and then falling back to the 160s then back up again).
I decided to replace the thermostat hoping that this would solve the problem. It did not. Now that it is winter and very cold, the coolant temperature never reaches the thermostat temperature (82 deg C or 180 deg F) and is struggling to get above 150 to 160 deg F for trips > 10 miles. I have blocked most of the radiator and still the same problem. MPGs can get in the low 40s for longer trips (> 10 miles), but for short trips they are in the mid 30s (1-3 miles). This is on the low side for what I have gotten in the past. When the engine temperature is erratic, the combustion efficiency suffers because of uneven temperature in the cylinders.
I have noticed the cabin heater is erratic at times as well. Great heat some times and at other times moderate heat. I attribute this (obviously) to the coolant temperature swings.
Also I have not heard the storage tank coolant pump run after I shut off the car during cold weather.
Would the issue be the coolant control valve? I have had no error codes set at all (specifically P1121). If it is the coolant control valve is the a test procedure to make sure this is the issue? Also are these covered under recall like the inverter coolant pumps were?
Thanks and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Rattle dashboard


Yours may be different but on my 2007 prius I found out that the rattling or clicking type noise came from the dash rubbing against another piece of plastic somewhere up by the windshield. I just lived with it.

03 impala temp fluct then overheats


It sounds like your water pump is shot. The small antifreeze leak is the coolant probably coming from the weep hole on the water pump. If you ran the car while the temperature was up, you may have to watch the head gaskets from now on as they may be shot. Water pumps wear out around 100k to 150k miles usually.

Used Mercedes Benz GL450 2007


over 80% of mercedes ever made are still on the road in use,only volvo can beat this fact with over 90%.
keep it serviced at 10k intervals,and it should last 30 plus years.
bodywork is galvanised,so look after paintwork(1 dent/scratch will knock over $1000 off the price...)only buy if full leather and keep it fed.

I have a 2007 Jetta with 40,500 miles and just noticed that the cooling fans remained on for over 6 minutes after a short trip to Walmart(6 miles roundtrip) . I have not noticed it before.


that is normal after shutting the car off. Do you change your thermostat and coolant every two years? If not its time to do so. Then the fans will not run so long next time
