If you know it is not low of coolant then the low coolant sensor in the recovery tank is defective or stuck.

Low coolent light on mess board i changed waterpump refilled fluids temp is normal fluids are full truck doesnot overheat just lowcoolent light on


Hello, my name is Ben and I think I have your solution. With all the work you have done and considering it isn't leaking or overheating, I believe your problem is the LOW COOLANT SENSOR itself or a short in the circuit. The sensor is located on the bottom of the coolant reservoir container which is mounted to the sidewall on the passenger side of the engine bay. Siphon the coolant our of the reservoir with a small pump and unbolt it from the sidewall. Turn it upside down and inspect the wiring going into the sensor. If you see no obvious bare spots, I would replace the sensor and put it all back together. Hope this helps, Ben.

When driving engine stops and car doesn't start until it cools down


You may have a failing cam sensor. This part, if it fails, has the symptom that the vehicle won't start until the engine cools down from normal operating temperature.

My engine light when on in my car yesterday and my friend has one of those things that can scan and tell you whats wrong it said my coolent temp below thermistat regulating temp and where where you pull...


Hi:
Your coolant temp sensor was not reading right, and is a sensor that adjusts your eng timing. I would keep an eye on your coolant level. That would be a bigger concern, figuring out if you have a leak. If the cold comes back, you need to change out the coolant temp sensor.

Temperature/heat wont work/dashboard lights on and off


It sounds to me like you're low on coolant. When you checked the coolant level, did you actually open the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full? The plastic tank you generally add coolant too is actually an 'overflow' or 'reserve' tank. There is a hose that runs from that tank to the top of the radiator so if the radiator gets low on coolant, more coolant -should- run in from the overflow tank. However in practice this does not always work. I have a Jeep that leaks coolant and experiences this exact same problem. Coolant will not run from the reserve tank into the radiator because the hose is plugged up, and whenever the radiator gets low on coolant the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


does it loose heat when you set still? is it full of coolent? whats the climent like were you at? is trans. low on fluid?when was the last time trans. was serviced? i know on most cars and trucks low fluid or old fluid can cause it to do what your saying, and also cold weather. some cars have a temp.sensor that won't let it shift into overdrive until car gets to a certain temp. with your temp. guage fluctuating the two could be related. has your service engine light ever come on and then went out, when it did this? if it ever has, have it scaned and see what codes show up. it might be that temp sensor i talked about. well thats the best i can do for you RON hope it helps or at least point you in the right direction to cure your problem. OLD SCHOOL.
