2005 ODYSSEY OVERHEATING WHEN AT IDLE

The car will maintain operating temperature if it is moving, but when it is stooped at idle the temperature will increase until it is at the 3/4 mark. When you get moving again it will decrease to reguler operating temperature. I changed the thermostat and replaced the coolant but this did not fix the problem. I think I should change the water pump. I called the dealer and they said it is not the water pump, buit when I ask them what the problem is they only say bring it in.

Check to make sure the electric radiator fan is running when it idles. Doe sthe temp go up with the a/c on? If not, then it is the colling fan not turning on when it should.

At idle 2005 4 litre mustang shows 50 psi at 75 degrees, when at normal temp pressure drops to 15,20 at idle. At 2,000 rpm shows 40 psi. This sounds low to me, is this normal?


That sounds normal. There would be specifications for it that you should check, but that sounds pretty normal. The specs probably show a pressure for idle at normal operating temperature, and another figure at a specified engine rpm. Or it may just have one spec at a certain rpm.

Runs bad when cold good when warned up


I would clean the throttle body, idle air control valve, and the Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) if equipped. The throttle body gets dirty and wouldn't allow enough air to pass into the engine. The engine will have trouble maintaining an idle until the car reaches normal operating temperature.

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.

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette...Overheating, changed the thermostat, no signs of leaking, and the oil looks fine. At idle it takes 20 minutes to max the temperature gauge (red) and while driving it take


Usually the problem with no heat and overheating is low coolant, thermostat, or a faulty water pump impeller.
The radiator may not be full of liquid coolant, or the pump may not be moving the coolant thru the block.

I am getting an engine system failure light coming out on my 2005 ford focus. The first day I checked oil and water. The oil was slightly low and I topped up. The water appeared to be overheating and I...


Sounds to me like you are having a cooling system problem, if water is boiling in the tank or radiator then the engine is overheating. If you have not flushed the cooling system, it would be a good idea to do so. Also you need to test the cooling system at idle and see if the engine will maintain normal temperature, without overheating. Overheating can be caused by plugged or restricted radiator, hoses, or the thermostat, also check the operation of the electric cooling fan. Once you solve the overheating you light should stay off. If you do not solve the overheating soon, the engine will suffer major damage, so check it out very soon. Hope this helps, let me know.

Overheating engine: termo guage at the middle during idle


The Temp gauge should read in the middle of the gauge at operating temperature. This is normal. The radiator fan should come on after idling (not driving) for 20 minutes. The fan should also come on when you turn on the AC. Are you experiencing overheat problems?
Please reply if you have overheating issues.
