I had similar problems 2 times with the automatic heat / AC module.
I suppose your system is automatic too.

First time the commands were working erratically acting weird. Sometimes was heating at full capacity blowing heads off. At other times it was not starting at all.
The whole module had to be replaced.

Second time if the car stayed in the sun the AC was heating, after starting the engine and cooling started only after achieving greater speeds (above ~60km/h). Whenever the speed decreased the system began to heat again eventually. It turned out that the engine cooling fan was broken and had to be replaced. That fan cools both the engine radiator and the AC radiator. If it is faulty your engine might be at risk of overheating at low speeds.

Hot starting problems are usually fuel related. When a hot engine is shut off, the temperature of the engine and everything on it continues to rise for awhile as the engine undergoes a period of "heat soak." This can cause fuel to boil inside the carburetor bowl, fuel lines and fuel filter. When you attempt to restart the engine, "vapor lock" obstructs the flow of fuel and the engine doesn't want to start.
This is much less of a problem on fuel injected engines because the fuel is usually under much higher pressure inside the injectors and fuel line. Even so, a fuel line routed near an exhaust manifold or a fuel rail that's exposed to a lot of heat may still suffer the same kind of problems.
Heat soak problems such as these can sometimes be cured by wrapping insulation around affected fuel lines, and/or installing an insulating spacer or heat shield under the carburetor.

My heater blows hot for a couple minutes then turns cold. After turning it off for a few minutes and back on, it blows hot then goes cold again.


LET YOUR CAR WARM UP FIRST!! or you risk the chance of over heating and casuing engine damage. start your car let it warm up for 5 to ten minutes and then try the heat. also when you start you should NEVER have heat on right away. the heat that you feel comes from the engine. and if the engine is cold and you are trying to heat it up it will put stress on the engine and over heat. ALL cars have to wait for their heat. that's why you see peoples car running in the morning with no one in it. so when they do get in it they have heat. heat will not work until the engine is warm.

Speedometer and Odometer not working at times, matches with engine heat cycle


Your vehicle speed sensor is mounted in the transaxle housing which is also subject to heating and cooling. The wiring harness to and from the speed sensor is also subjected to engine heating and cooling. Anybody that knows anything about electrical circuits can tell you that an electrical circuit's worst enemy is heat. You need to diagnose the vehicle speed sensor circuits like the code is TELLING you to do.

My Toyota Carina 2 heats up to the middle and when i stop the engine it won't start again until it's cooled. I've tried changing the fuel pump but the problem remained the same. please help


the toyota have a heat sensor to the engine it would normaly cut the engine out if it was getting to hot to save the engine from over heating , if the engine is getting abit hot when you turn the engine off and try to start it the sensor picking up the temp and stoping it from starting, you could try a new heat sensor as it could be faulty

Engine light wenton, car heated up, car would not


If the engine overheated while driving, damage to the cylinder head gasket or engine block/cylinder head may have been done, which would prevent the vehicle from starting.

A standard engine compression check will tell the tale.

2002 saturn has no heat, engine heats up very


Sounds like a thermostat problem to start with. Follow the top rad. hose to the engine. You will have to bleed the system of air after.

Once i start my car and turn on the heat, it starts blowing in cold air until i get on the road and accelerate more, then the heat starts coming. but once the heat starts it only lasts about two minutes...


Hi Jens,

Two things are happening.

The first is normal. Your heater gets its heat from the coolant ciculating in your engine. In order for it to work, the coolant needs time to heat up a bit. This is true of just about every vehicle.

When it gets cold again is the puzzler.

My advice is to check the coolant level in the radiator.

ONLY when the engine has cooled.

If the level is down, there can be times when there isn't enough water to cool the engine, fill the radiator and the heater core. The result is the heater blows cold air and the engine runs hotter than normal.

So check the coolant. Open the cap. Start the engine and top it off.

Then see if there is a change.

Best regards,
Mike
