SOURCE: The3 Rocky 1990 SX , CC 1600. Check Engine light

The check engine light (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.


As for the rough running you will need to have the engine checked for a leaking/blown cylinder head gasket with a gas analyzer to check for the presence of Hydrocarbons in the cooling system.

I am not sure what you are asking about the timing belt but if it runs the belt is ok. One final note if the timing belt is overdue and it breaks you will bend the valves in the engine.

Can either of these codes cause my 1999 Oldsmobile bravada SUV to over heat: P0442 ornP1361 or P0117??


code p 0442 refers to EVAP system so that is unlikely
check the fan operation and if you have a viscous fan hub ( fan clutch ) replace it
if you have electric fans , check coolant temperature sensor for operation , fuses , relay and fans
overheating is from low coolant levels , head gaskets/cracked heads, blocked radiator cores , fins flaking off core tubes, incorrect timing, blocked exhaust( cat converter)problem thermostat, over loading /over speeding, overdrive not engaging
if you over heating is predominately at lights , slow moving traffic or high engine rpms with low speed --check the fan operation and if it is viscous fan hub driven --replace the hub or if electric fans have that circuit checked out

Temperature sensor cause overheating


Basically only 2 things could cause overheating:
1.) The temperature sensor (which you mentioned); in which case, replace the temperature sensor; or:
2.) The controller is having the heating element on too long (or it may have a stuck relay, in which case the heating element is on all the time whenever the dishwasher is on which can cause SEVERE overheating.

Will etc sensor cause overheating in northstar


If you mean ECT (Engine coolant temperature) sensor, yes it can.
The ECT is responsible for turning on & off the radiator cooling fan.
However an ETC (Electronic traction control) sensor typically wouldn't cause the engine to overheat. However if there is a code in the engine computer it can turn off the traction control. So if the ETC is turning off it may be a result rather than a cause.
You'll need to check for codes in the engine computer & if there is one for the temperature sensor you most likely will need to replace it but you'll also need to check the coolant level. If it is low you obviously have a leak.
FOOT NOTE: This engine is well know for its HEAD GASKETS leaking coolant. If you are having persistent overheating conditions & can't seem to locate the cause ie; water pump, radiator, hose ect. you most likely will need to have the head gaskets replaced... & that isn't cheap.

Hope this helps.
FarrouT!

What is a code 1258 on a 2005 chevy equinox


DTC P1258: Engine Coolant Over-Temperature Protection

The powertrain control module (PCM) has the ability to disable 4 injectors during an engine over-temperature (overheating) conditoin. Engine is considered over-temperature whenever the engine coolant temperature reaches 268 F. This protection mode allows the PCM to alternate between groups of cylinders, thereby reducing coolant temperature. This is accomplished by disabling the fuel injectors. This DTC is set to show that an overheating condition was or is observed by the PCM and that the protection mode has been engaged.



You will need to inspect the cooling system to see what is causing your overheating issue. If the engine is not actually overheating, this code may be set due to a faulty engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.



Hope this helps, also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

2000 daewoo leganza is overheating, leaking anti freeze, and water. what is wrong?


sound like thermostat sticking close.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.if already done.you could have faulty water pump.if engine overheating at long slow traffic line or setting at a stand still.the engine cooling fans should be running, check and see if cooling fans running if not,check cooling fans fuses and relays.if all is good,hot wire make sure coolings fans okay.if all is good,code scan vechicle for faulty engine coolant temperature sensor and ecm problems.you need a code scanner where you can check live data check see if coolant temperature sensor reading correctly if engine coolant temperature is 190 degrees the coolant sensor. the scanner suppose to show 190 degrees in temperature if not it reads 80 or 90 degrees the engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty need replacing.if all is good check engine oil if look like milk shake blow head gasket will cause over heating.to be on the safe side i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap first.to make sure engine coolant circulating through radiator and engine block.

Overheating


OVERHEATING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS LIKE FAULTY THERMOSTAT AND FAULTY RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP,TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM NEED 50 / 50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAK, IF COOLANT LEAKING OUT WEEP HOLE WATER PUMP BAD NEED REPLACING.CHECK FOR LOW COOLANT LEVEL, YOUR RADIATOR OVERFLOW JUG SHOULD HAVE COOLANT AT THE FULL COLD MARK IF NOT KEEP ADDING COOLANT INTO COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT STOP DROPPING AND FULL COLD MARK, IF OVERFLOW COOLANT JUG WAS EMPTY RADIATOR IS LOW ON COOLANT.WHICH CAUSE AIR IN COOLANT SYSTEM KEEPING THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FROM BEING SUBMERGE IN HOT COOLANT WHICH TURN ON THE COOLANT FANS.WHEN ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET CERTAIN SET TEMPERATURE LIKE 190 DEGREES THE PCM AND COOLANT SENSOR WILL TURN ON COOLANT FANS, IF VECHICLE OVERHEATING COOLANT FANS NOT WORKING EITHER YOU HAVE FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAYS. YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

Engine heat indicator flexuates, but engine


There is a coolant temperature sensor on the top engine block to measure the temperature. Either the connector is loosen or the temp sensor is bad. This sensor is bad will cause the gauge reading fluctuated. Locate the temp sensor and replace it to take care of the problem.

My engine is always overheating and we can not


CHANGE THERMOSTAT.MOST OF THE TIME THERMOSTAT WILL CAUSE OVERHEATING.CHECK YOUR COOLANT MAKE SURE ITS NOT LOW.HAVE COOLANT FANS CHECK TOO SEE IF THEY TURNING ON.GET A DIAGNOSTIC SCANNER HOOK UP TO CHECK FOR COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULT AND FAN RELAY AND FAN FAULT. MAKE SURE FAN FUSE IS GOOD.
