There really isn't much information here, but usually on a fuel injected motor your water temperature sensor is what tells the engine computer if the temperature is cold enough to require the engine to run in phase lock loop or what would be the choke on a carbureted engine. Your engine should have 2 water temperature sensors, one for the gauge or light and one for the computer. The one for the computer will have more than one wire and the one for the gauge or light will only have one.

2004 Kia low heat at idle hiway speeds ok


Make sure and top up your coolant at every fill-up for a while. Airlocked heat exchangers tend to burp out air at random until none is left. My saturn still has a little in it, i can hear it the first time i take off from a stoplight in the morning.

2004 Kia low heat at idle hiway speeds ok


On these and many other vehicles, use a vacuum refill coolant air lift.This removes all air in the cooling system and then fills the cooling system fully with coolant.

1995 Nissan Altima - a/c blows warm air. Several other problems, car has a loud idle and will often die out if I do not keep the a/c or heat setting on low, then the car idles normal. Just moved to Fl


Possibly bad compressor, worn bearings in a pulley or lines TO compressor. Also, perhaps wrong refrigerant added. Sometimes it makes a difference as there are some 7 different kinds.

2002 duramax will heat up underload but not at idle any ideas why


No diesel I have ever owned will heat up to operating temp while idling. I have had semi's and dump truck and a Dodge with a Cummings turbo diesel. If you don't idle a diesel up to around 1200 rpm while sitting the combustion chamber temperature will drop because the diesel does not ignite fully at low rpm. You may also notice after an extended period of idling 1/2 hour or more that when you pull away the exhaust will be whitish blue because of the unburnt diesel fuel sitting on top of the rings. Also extended low idle will wash down the cylinder walls with unburnt diesel and remove the oil from lubricating the cylinders and rings. Hope this helps you understand why your diesel won't heat up while idling. Mike
