    I have 99 Dodge Stratus which seems to overheat when the AC is on for about 15 mins. I turn off the AC and temperature gauge hits the middle line.

    My temperature gauge has no numbers just lines, and it has never hit the redzone. Is the redzone on the temperature gauge indicate overheating?

Check to see if the electric fan comes on at the radiator when you turn on the A/C? if not try switching the fan relay, located in the main electrical box under the hood.

Yes, it is safe to drive without the A/C on if it's not overheating.

Air suspension light stays on my 95 Lincoln town car.but everything seems to be working fine. How do I reset?


In the trunk of the car on the drivers side, there should be an on/off switch for your air ride. while your car is off, turn the switch to the off position. Next start the car and let it run for a few min and turn off. go back and push the air ride switch to the on position. the next time you start the vehicle it should be reset.

When moter gets real hot it wants to quite running.But when its cold outside it runs just fine.Afriend of mine told me it could be the coil.Is this true?


my concern is about your car getting real hot, if it overheats and you keep running your car,it might result in a blown head gasket or other serious problem, check your cooling sistem, thermostat, etc, clogged radiator or not enogh air circulating thru it. do not run your car if it overheats if it does and cant stop wright away turn your heat all on the hi speed to get to a safe place.

Classic signs of a bad water pump. When on the freeway, the circulation of coolant through the system is increased due to the speed but once you slow down, it will tend to overheat. Please post back with any other questions or just to rate the solution. Thanks very much!

Hello


You can use 87 octane, but first let me give you some food for thought, when you use lower octane than recommended the knock or ping sensor will ****** the timing to accommodate the lower octane fuel and prevent piston damage, this causes a loss of fuel economy and power, so the real saving is very small if at all, but yes your car will run fine in all but very hot climates, like the southwestern states. I hqave a Corvette, it calls for 91 Octane, I have run 87 in it to save money, but the fuel mileage drops 3 MPG, so I gave that up.

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


Hi,

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.
