Question about 1997 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

97 plymouth breeze trouble

While driving my car with a/c on I lost power, top speed was 40 mph. and then overheated and when I stopped the car the temp guage was reading normal. the car would not start after that and I had to tow it home. Now I am getting codes for a po441 and po443 which are evap purge flow monitor failure and evap solenoid circuit. I checked all hoses for cracks replaced canister and solenoid but the car still runs like ****. any clue on what this might be?

Just a shot in the dark.... Have you removed/loosened the serpintine belt and checked all the pulleys? Especially the A/C? Most of them except the main drive pulley should spin mostly freely. The compressor or pulley on the A/C may have failed and that's what is holding your engine back. I don't know the car very well but if your lucky there might be a seperate belt that goes to the A/C.

-Or it could be something completely different. Just something to try.

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring blows our cool air only when idling AND driving in town. On the interstate it blows out hot air. Sometimes it will blow out warm air in town if I'm going 35 or 40 mph. Its a tad...

When the engine temp looks normal on the gauge but you get no heat inside unless your keeping the RPMs up by driving it,It usually means the fluid in the radiator is very low.wait until it is cooled completely and remove the radiator cap and fill completely,Check resovour and fill to correct level,

Engine coolant overflowing

by disconnecting the sensor you send the cooling fan into safe which turns it on, this quickly eleminats all the fan parts, if it still overheats check for leaks, really doubt the water pump is the problem, they just seem to last forever on this engine, but you may have a leak, top the cooling system with 60/40 mix of coolant, and the coolant recovery tank and see if the overheating stops, it it does have the system pressure tested for leaks by a shop, cost will be maybe $50, this is a small price to pay to save the engine from the severe damage that overheating causes the newer aluminum heads, a $1000 plus repair job at the least.

I drive about 260 miles a day. my 1999 dodge truck has been running about 210-230 degrees. i drive about 70 mph. if i slow to 55-60 the temp stays 210.

seems high to me. summer thermostats open at 185 , winter thermostats open at 195. At highway speeds , there should be more than enough air flow through the radiator to keep engine in the normal range. Your radiator might be pluged up and cooling poorly , but I suspect your temp guage might be inacurate.

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.
