Check your exhaust, cooling system(fans,radiator fluid levels, water pump,) your problem may lie there .... could also be a bad thermostat

99 ford taurus starts up but doesnt drive more than 10 miles per hour and temperature starts to rise


maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..

It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.

Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal ..ie. overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.

If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you

My engine overheating problem is in my 2000 land rover. The fan is running and the electric fan comes on at correct engine temperature. After start up the engine runs normal the temp gage rises slowly to...


the usual suspects are:
stuck shut thermostat
clogged raiator
dead water pump
low coolant level
it's sunday, rovers don't work on sunday.
Then again, maybe its wednesday, rovers take half a day then. 25322555-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-5-0.jpg

Hi my 2000 Honda odyssey temperature gauge rises to red but shows no signs of the car overheating but while driving everything is normal but this only happens while in idle any suggestions? Need help asap


Make sure your cooling fans come on. If overheating at idle it is likely for the fans to have failed. While driving the air rushing through the grill cools the coolant in the radiator which is probably why it's fine while driving. You shouldn't drive the car if overheating as this will cause damage to the engine. Check fan relays, fuses and fans. If you turn the A/C on the fans should come on.

The temperature gauge in my 2007 Chev Equinox... is up passed the red section... all the way up to the temperature icon. My car is not overheating. What can be done to fix this? How safe is it to drive...


Its probably the gage itself. A quick stop by a Dealership and they can check the instrument cluster gage by gage. For free maybe! If not the gage, could be the engine temperature sensor.
As long as the engine is NOT overheating, you can still drive it.

Temperature gage rises and engine overheats on our honda accord. thermostat has been changed and it is not any better. whats next?


The next thing to do is to observe the car as it idles for 10 minutes to ensure the electric radiator fan is coming on if not replace the fan relay if that doesn't work replace the coolant temp. sensor that activates the relay that activates the fan after that ti can only be the fan itself that is if the fan is not coming on.

1997 Hyundai Elantra has heat but temp gauge does not rise.


If the coolant is below a certain level, the temperature sensor will not read anything and the temp gauge will not rise. Replace the cap, and check that you have enough coolant in the system. If this does not solve the problem, you will need to test/troubleshoot the coolant temperature sensor.

Radiator fan not working


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

91 buick runs for awhile, engine light comes on, car shakes then quits. fan wont come on to cool it, how do i repair it?


Perhaps if you could provide a little more information or observations, it might be easier to isolate the problem. For example, it appears you may have a problem with the engine overheating and then your engine dies when the extreme temperature is reached. When you start the engine, watch the temperature gage on the instrument panel. Does the temperature rise slowly (lets say over a period of 10 minutes or more) or does it rise quickly to the point of overheating (less than 5 minutes)? If the temperature rises slowly, it is probably just that the thermostat needs to be replaced. The thermostat is usually located in a housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. If however, the temperature rises rapidly, that indicates a more serious problem. Your engine may have a blown head gasket which is venting hot exhaust gases into the cooling system causing the temperature to rise rapidly. I recently had this exact problem with my Chevrolet Venture which, like your Buick, is a GM product.
As far as the fan motor not coming on, the problem might be the fan motor itself. One way to test it is to connect the fan's electrical leads to a 12 volt power source like your car's battery. If the fan works, then the problem could be with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor (ECT) which screws into the intake manifold. The ECT senses the engine's temperature and tells the fan when it needs to come on to start cooling. I hope some of this helps.
