If the gauge is correct,you may have a thermostat stuck open.Check and replace the thermostat.Your vehicle needs to run a certain temperature for the computer to switch to and operate correctly in closed loop mode..Good Luck!!!

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside


change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

Lacks power, chugs occasionally


What does the oil look like?Do a simple tune up first, plugs wires and filters. If that doesnt work Take a temp gun, measure the heat before ur converter and after at operating temperature. If ur exhaust is more than 100 degrees hotter after the converter you need it replaced. Could cause the engine to blow up.

Thermofans don't kick in, but temperature seems ok


Hello... You should not be concerned... This is normal... Also, normally you should not hear the thermostat. But the Fans don't normally turn on until about 100 degrees centigrade....

Good Luck

My 2000 jeep doesnt heat whats wrong


Heating problems are very frequent problem with G.C.
However, the root causes are not necessarely the sames.

First, do you run a 4.0 L or 4.7L
Second, is your vehicule equipped with dual zone air control (driver side and passenger side controlled independently)
Third, does you temperature gauge needle in your dash indicate very near to 100 degrees C or 195 degrees F when the engine reachs its normal operating temp.
Fourth, does it heat a little bit or nothing at all
Fifth, what is the average wheather temperature in your living country

Please provide these info and we will try to help you.

Keep getting code po420



Before Checking a Catalytic
Converter DTC
Before you troubleshoot an OBD II vehicle that stores
DTC P0420 (67) (catalyst system efficiency below
threshold), run these quick checks:
1. Check for a leak in the exhaust system. If you find
one, repair it, clear the DTC, and test-drive the
vehicle.
• If the DTC returns, go to step 2.
2. Connect the PGM Tester, and test-drive the vehicle
while an assistant monitors the voltage signal from
the secondary oxygen sensor (HO2S S2). After the
catalyst reaches operating temperature, the HO2S S2
voltage should stay between 0.5 and 0.8 V at steady
cruising speed. During deceleration, the voltage
should be steady at 0.1 V or less.
• If the voltage readings are OK, clear the DTC.
• At cruising speed, if the voltage fluctuates or stays
below 5 V, go to step 3.
3. Measure the inlet and outlet external temperatures of
the catalytic converter with a thermometer capable
of reading up to 500°F.
• If the outlet temperature is more than 100°F hotter
than the inlet temperature, the converter is OK.
• If the outlet temperature is less than 100°F hotter
than the inlet temperature, replace the converter.

2002 Lancer 2002 A/C won't kick in at hot weather temperature during the Summer in Texas. It works perfectly at cooler temperature such as morning or cloudy day. The A/C also work while engineer is hot...


Okay, here are a few possibilities. First, they do make a High performance freon and carry it at Autoparts stores. Second, moderation. All A/C systems have a low pressure cutoff switch and a high pressure cutoff switch. You want to stay below the high limit. Freon is a gas and will generate more pressure when the outside air is hotter. The switches run $20 to $40 each. It may be possible to change to different pressure numbers without blowing a hose. You old switches could be weak.

Cooling light stays on


If you are referring to the blue temp light on the dash, it stays on until the engine has reached operating temperature. This lets you know the heat will be ineffective and the engine will not be running at peak efficiency during this time.
