Ok you could have a few things happen here. when is last time you changed your coolant?? start there. next is your fan coming when it needs to?? let your bike idle and see if it kicks on if so let it go till it kicks off. it the fan is not working then your fan motor or temp switch could bad. next have you put aftermarket pipes on the but? if so have you jet the to run with the pipes? if not your running the motor "lean" and this will cause the bike to run hot.

1010 John Deere tractor shuts down after temp gauge goes half way to hot


Sounds like the temperature gauge or temperature sensor is faulty and giving a wrong reading. Too high of an engine temperature will shut that engine down. Check the temperature with a temp gun if you can get one to see how hot it is before it shuts down. Aim it at the coolant line or the engine block. Or take the temperature sensor out and check it by putting it in a pot full of hot water with a temperature gauge and boil the water to see how high the temperature gets before the sensor closes or opens. Use an ohm meter across the sensor terminals to know when it's either opened or closed. Some of these are set up to operate in either open or close mode.

Runs good until hot chokes itself out or runs out of fuel engine reavs high then for 3 or 4 times then cuts off


sounds like the coil is breaking down at high temperature. make sure the engine is not covered with grass clipping and dirt. replace the coil. i think this will solve your problem

Started running hot,replaced thermostat and still runs hot.Top radiator hose is hot bottom is cold.


Did you put the thermostat in backwards? If you did, it wont open when hot. Thermostats look pretty much the same - with some minor variations. It's important to note the the side with the spring should be facing the (hot) engine and the other side facing the (cool) radiator as shown in the image below. If the spring side doesn't get hot - it won't open to let hot water from the engine flow to the radiator for proper cooling.

No DTC definition code found p1114


Hi there:
DTC P1114 - Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent Low Voltage/IAT - B Circuit Low Input



The engine coolant temperature sensor is a thermistor (a resistor which changes value based on temperature) mounted in the engine coolant passage. Low coolant temperature produces a high resistance 100,000 ohms at -40 oC (-40 oF) while high temperature causes low resistance 70 ohms at 130 oC (266 oF).

OPERATION
The VCM supplies a 5 volt signal to the engine coolant temperature sensor through a resistor in the VCM and measures the voltage. The voltage will be high when the engine is cold. The voltage will be low when the engine is hot. By measuring the voltage, the VCM calculates the engine coolant temperature. Engine coolant temperature affects most systems the VCM controls.

The scan tool displays engine coolant temperature in degrees. After engine start-up, the temperature should rise steadily to about 9O oC (194 oF) then stabilize when thermostat opens. If the engine has not been run for several hours (overnight), the engine coolant temperature and intake air temperature displays should be close to each other. When the VCM detects a malfunction in the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor circuit, the following Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) s will set.



Hope this helps.

Clutch not working when temperature is high


You mean fan clutch? If so, check the wiring harness for frayed wires. These fan clutches for Envoys and Trailblazers tend to go out often. BUT, the more common problem is for the fan clutch to stay engaged, keeping the engine temperature too cool.

On another note, if you think 210 degrees is too high.....that's what it's supposed to run at, these engines run hot and should be dead on 210.

I just purchased this truck n it smells like it is running hot?


Modern engines run at high under hood temperatures. If the temperature gauge is running normal and there is no signs of steam out of the water bottle, there should be no problem, but keep an eye on the coolant level and check the engine after a long slow run if you are still worried.

Within the past three months, I have put two thermostats in my 1991 Honda Accord, and it is still overheating. I have bled the system, and replaced the radiator cap. The temperature gauge fluctuates...


the hose to the top is hot ,the bottom is cold the radiator is plugged,have to replace it.Would suggest ,just get a new one ,don't fool around with cleaners or flushes.

Engine temperature reading high


Faulty temperature sensor I think, thats what feeds the gauge. If the vehicle is genuinely running hot there would be a lot of pressure in your radiator causing overflows/steam/coolant smell.
Those sensos wear out and commonly go to short which shows a higher & higher reading until they fully short out
...hope that helps.

1994 CHEVY CAVALIER V-6 STARTS TO OVERHEAT WHEN A/C RUNNING. ALREADY CHANGED THERMOSTAT AND ADDED COOLANT, STILL RUNS HOT, SOUNDS LIKE THE COOLING FANS AREN'T COMING ON WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO. CONSTANT...


Make sure you get the air out. There may be "high spots" on the engine that you can unscrew to let the air pockets t. Close this small valve when just hot water comes out.
Unplug the radiator fan and use jumper leads to test the fan operation. Use a scan tool to check for codes. If you get a scan tool that gives live data, see that the PCM sees the actual temperature of the engine after 5 to 10 minutes of running. It should see the temp. rising to 225 degrees farenheit.
Replace engine temperature sensor if the PCM doesn't recognize the proper temperature. You ARE going to compare this to the temperature gauge!!!
If all else fails, get the PCM recalibrated or flashed at the dealership.

1994 Hyundai Excel Air conditioning RADIATOR´S FAN works always very fast


this not really a problem as the fan speed is controlled by the high preasure switch in the ac system the hotter it is outside the higher the preassure will be in the system as hot as its been the preasure is high already when the compressor cycles it pulls suction on one side and outputs high preasure on the other the fans cool the condenser the higher the ambient temp the faster they go so all is fine...
