Question about 1995 Chrysler LHS

1 Answer

When I start my 95 lhs and let it run for about 3 mins or so coolant will start to come out of the over flow. The coolant is only warm when this happens. I can put my finger in the coolant reservoir right as it is coming out of the over flow. I put the cap back on and shut the engine off and it comes out even more. Can anyone help. Thanks scott

Sounds like you may have an internal head gasket leak into the combustion chamber and the compression gases are forcing the coolant out the overflow.if it was the thermostat it would take longer than the 3 mins you say before it does this.but compression gases at 150lbs or so in the cooling system takes far less time to cause this overflow and when you turn off the motor the gases are there over a longer period of time,because the cylinder is not going from compression to intake or power stroke as it would if it was can get the cooling system tested for combustion chamber gases.

I would check for trouble codes in the computer and fuel pressure next.
You need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or low fuel pressure issue to proceed.

My 95 dodge intrepid heater went out for no reason. I checked the hoses going into the firewall after a 20 mins drive and they are winter cold, what could be the problem?

is the cooling system full if so you may have a coolant flow problem(rad plugged,bad water pump impeller) restriction maybe in the heater hose that feeds the heater long has it been since the thermostat has been replaced.this is a long shot but if the cooling fans are constantly running this can have an effect not letting the motor to get warm enough.

i think its time to trade it in quick before the head goes altogether ,it has a pressure problem and only one thing will cause this and thats a head gasket or corroded water ports in the cylinder head

Might check the coolant sensor. Make sure it is reading correctly. If it is still reading cold on your coolant sensor it will tell the computer to run as if it were cold telling the computer to send more fuel when in fact it doesnt need any because the engine is already warmed up.

Only cold air

Well the heat from a car comes from the coolant which warms up from the engine being on, so if your engine is off, the coolant wont warm up and flow through the heater core, and you wont get warm air. 95% of cars are like this.

The heat control valve, this is the valve that allows hot engine coolant to flow into the heater core inside the dash , if its decective it will not open to let the coolant to flow.
The Thermostat if it is bad (stuck open) the car will not warm up and will also cause a no heat problem as well as many other issues.
Does the car warm up quickly and reach operating temp within about 5 min?
