2001 Nissan xterra temp gauge rises to H when idling?


Dear George,
I'll start with the most common cause.
Check the radiator cooling fan to see if it is functioning correctly.
It is turned on by a sensor that screws into the engine block, and there is also a relay in the under-hood electrical box.
Finally, the electric fan is mounted at the radiator.
There should be 2 fans there, one of them is for engine cooling, one for Air Conditioner cooling.
The engine cooling fan should come on anytime the engine temperature exceeds the setting of the screw-in-the-block sensor.
If it does not, it could be the sensor, the relay, or the cooling fan itself that has failed.
If you live in an area of the country that is prone to extreme cold temperature, "road salt" can contribute to fan failure.
If all these check OK, write us back and tell us, we'll go to step # 2.
God bless your efforts.

Temperature sensor on 2007 Malibu Maxx LT location


Lumina V6, 2000 model after starting 5 to 6 mins temp gauge goes up slowly. Cooling fan is on. Coolant ok. If stopped the car and started again gauge needle comes down quickly to normal and then runs normal at any speed. It happens only first starting. I am suspecting temperature sender malfunction. Could not see the temp switch position to check its connection.On earlier models it is located directly under the thermostat. But if its bad it should throw a code making your check engine light come on. Sounds more like a thermostat problem. Even if its a new one they can fail.

I need a coolent temp sensor for 1979 Cad. Seville.,do anyone knows where to fine one


unlikely to be the coolant temperature sensor
more likely to be a failing electronic component like an ECM if EFI engine or an ignition control module failing for a component overheating internally
why I say this is because coolant temperatures take a long time to cool down but an electronic component that has no current flowing will cool quicker

Hi, It's me again, the 97 Crown Vic. I understand exactly what you're saying and will have someone look under my car ASAP. The one thing that I just don't get is.... even when it's not...


Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the engine.as it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.

Car won't start. It turns over but won't start. Wait 10-15 minutes and it starts.1998 Honda Accord EX


There is a possibility of a condition called "Vapor Lock" in which on hot temperatures, air bubbles form inside the fuel line, and dont allow the fuel to reach the injectors. One the line cools down, the vapor goes away, and car starts uneventfully. Have the fuel lines checked for leaks or abnormalities. The other possibility is that the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) relay or computer unit is acting up. These units usually start to fail when hot, and work normally after the engine compartment cools down.

Hi i have a 2007 bmx x3 , and i was driving my car suddenly the temperature light appeared ant the car stopped for security, then, when it cooled down it started again, but after 3 blocks the same thing...


check the water level in the radiator and in the expasion tank,
I reckon the thermostat has failed (very very likely).
http://auto.howstuffworks.com/cooling-system8.htm

when it fails it never opens to circulate water to the radiator, if this is true your temp gauge will read HOT but the radiator will be quite cool compared to the engine. ------ Thermostat is around $60 / £48 from BMW only!!, a non-bmw part is false economy and will invalidate your warranty.

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.

Hello


I am wondering if this is a faulty temperature switch or cooling fan switch. They control the cooling fan operation, and could explain the up and down of the temperature gauge if not working properly.
