My 01 Pontiac Montana is trying to overheat at high power


If your vehicle doesn't actually overheat, just getting hot, I think that's the normal behaviour for these cars. My 03 AWD behaves the same way. When driving uphill, especialy when towing, the temperature rises close to the red marking, but I have never experienced it overheating. I think that the temperature has to rise much over the normal driving temperature to activate the two electric fans.

Is it normal on 94 grand prix 3.1 for the temp. gauge to NOT stay at a steady temp. all the time? mine seems to go up to 210 at a stop light then go back down after i start rollin again, i just had air...


Have you checked your cooling fan to see if it is working propely? Let the car idle and get warm and listen for the fan to kick in (if they are electric) or just watch to see if the fan starts to spin faster if it is the old school type with a clutch. Have you replaced the thermostat? A bad one will let the temp rise since it opens too late and then the temp will drop off. But it won't due this only at a light and it will do it infrequently.

My temperature gauge has been fluctuating since summer began


Sounds like your electric fan is not coming on. First check the fan fuse and relay and switch. If all good run a hot jumper wire to fan motor and see if it comes on.if not get a replacement fan motor. If fan is working normally then i would flush the system and replace the thermostat.

Why does the engine fan NOT turn off on my 2002 Jaguar S Type 4.0 liter? It runs for several minutes after turning the car off and will come on while driving. I just replaced the sensor and it is still...


It would not be abnormal, so long as the fan does not come on when you switch on from cold. The fan's job is to draw air through the radiator to cool the contained liquid to a suitable working temperature. The fans sensor is activated by the temperature of the coolant. If this is a problem which worries you, try driving as gently and slowly as possible for the last mile or two of your journey. If things are normal the fan should not run on switch-off as that 'trick' will have allowed the coolant to get below the fan-kick-in temperature before you stop the engine. If your vehicle has a temperature gauge use the rteading as an indication.

When i stop the car the air in the car get hot but when i'm moving the air runs good.What could be the problem


Have your a/c condensor fan check out, sit in back of the radiator, fan should always be on when a/c is on to reduce the freon pressure in the condensor or a/c will not get cold till air goes through the condensor while driving down the road, no air blows through at stop light because fan not working so a/c will not work right.

Check both fans for free turning and no bearing noise (engine cold). Replace any motors that are suspect. You need to verify that the fans come on--turn on the A/C which should force the fans to run all the time. If they do, that eliminates the fans, relay, fuse, and computer. The temperature gauge should be driven by the computer with information from the temperature sensor, which also controls fan operation when the A/C is turned off. If the temperature gauge is driven from a different source, then the temperature sensor would be the place to look. Both fans should turn on shortly after the thermostat opens releasing water from the engine into the radiator (feel the upper hose). Use compressed air to blow out all the bugs and other debris from the radiator core (from the engine side). I hope this helps.

The sensor for the fans is in the rad at the bottom. T-stat may be bad or the rad may be clogged. Cooling system needs attention.

Overheat, and running fan


check your oil and coolant level to be on the safe side but it sounds like everything is normal if there is no airflow across the radiator the fan will operate when the engine gets hot even with the engine off

1992 accord running hot


Check the cooling fan switch and the temperature control switch, they should be turning your fan on when the engine temp begins to rise (as when u stop and gauge starts to climb).

Check your thermostat and check to see if the electric motor has power or not may be a damaged wire or a fried fan motor,you can also check the fan motor by running a power lead from your battery.good luck
