Sounds like your electric fan is not kicking in when the engine is hot and there is no ram air going through the radiator. Warm up the car and let it idle stationary, watching the temp. gauge and look to see if the fan kicks in when the temp gauge reaches about the 3/4 mark. If it does not there is a problem with the thermostatic switch or its relay.

How many miles do I need to drive to complete the drive cycle


hi
generally the catalic converter get oily especially if the car is used
around the town the best thing to do from past experience is to drive the car down the motorway at 60mph. for good 3/4 hour at high revs
third gear if 4 gear motor you get the meaning this way you burn the oil
out because lots more heat is crated once this is done youshould pass the emission. happy driving

Overheating when driving around town with the AC on--how do you fix the propblem?


Now What !

You should have stopped using it when it first overheated,
& had the issues diagnosed.

You need a dealer or repair shop, unless you have a full set
of factory work shop manuals & powertrain control & emissions
diagnostic manuals, for the year of your car,avail from Helm.Com

How many miles per gallon does a 1990 Honda Accord LX get?


The figures quoted for a new vehicle are pretty irrelivant because its what the car does with YOUR driving style that counts. So do this; fill the tank up so it won't hold another drop. Then take it for a long drive, combining highway and town driving (aim for about 100 miles) then fill the tank again. Then work out how much fuel you put in in gallons and divide that figure by the miles you covered.
E.g. 4 gallons of fuel used to travel 100 miles
4 / 100 = 25mpg.
When you refill the tank again drive again just to lower the level in the tank cos fuel expands when its warm and escapes out through the the breather hose which can be dangerous. But this method will tell you what mpg the car does when YOU are driving. The basic rules are, change gear early and dont work the engine hard. And on a highway (motorway? - Im from the UK) keep your speed to 56mph. Thats the optimum cruising speed manufacturers quote for ecconomy.
Hope this helps and happy driving

Oil light comes on when driving on motorway but not round town, oil level was high had oil change last week, before that it was fine lights didnt come on, does it come on because oil level is high, can i...


Oil light will only come on when the sensor does not detect oil flow.You may have a circulation issue not allowing oil to return to oil pan quick enough to keep up on motorway. Have valve covers removed and check for build up at oil return ports in top of head(s)

Mitsubishi Pajero (Montero) 2005 transmission light. After driving for approximately 20 km (~12.5 miles) at a steady speed of 120 km/h (~65 miles/hour) the red light of the transmission starts flashing. ...


Could be either or, or it could be neither. Is the "red light" a transmission temperature warning light? If so, the fluid is over heating and the heat sensor is turning the light on...Check fluid level and the condition of your fluid...if it's off colored and smells burnt, you better have it flushed, refilled and a new filter installed. Heat will kill a transmission faster than anything.
Check the transmission cooler, most montero's had a cooler installed on the front of the vehicle by the radiator...the cooling fins need to be clean, no bugs or debris so air flows through it. Have your vehicle scanned also, if you had a transmission code the computers memory will probably still have it stored, this will be helpful with further diagnosis.

Engine malfunction light came on


As with any check engine light, the only way to find out what the issue is is to have the code read. The dealership can pull the code and let you know what the issue is.
Before considering driving the vehicle to the dealer though, check the obvious: oil level, coolant level, transmission oil level.
If your uneasy, have it towed.
