Question about 2001 Daewoo Lanos

Hard to start and fuel relay problem

We originally had a problem with the housing thermostat - we replaced it. Not long after that we couldn't get the car to start and the check engine light came on. We did a tune-up - including replacing the fuel filter. We had to change the fuel relay in the fuse box under the hood. The check engine light is still on and the relay has now been replaced two more times. Any suggestions - the relays are available only from the dealer and he has to send off to Korea for them.

Have a 2002 dodge stratus with a 6 cyl 2.7L engine. Was running fine then all of a sudden became hard to start. Switched the windshield wiper relay with the fuel pump relay. Started fine for one day then...

I would buy a fuel pump relay for that particular car. If that relay that you switched with the wiper relay isn't the same exact one then the fuel pump will not work properly. Make sure the right relay is in there. Could also be a clogged fuel filter.

2004 alero heating up coolant level ok can not tell if both fans are coming on

Most common overheating problems are: 1) incorrect coolant or degraded coolant mixture (check specific gravity), 2) bad thermostat (replacement it simple and part is cheap) , 3) bad water pump (will usually see a leak at pump or hear gurgling coming from heater core area when warming up engine) 4) bad radiator (will be leaking / steaming from radiator area) 5) cooling fan not coming on after engine has reached operating temperature). First, deternine the specific gravity of your coolant. You can buy a cheap tester for this, or some auto parts stores will check it for you. If your coolant looks discolored or rusty, a flush and coolant change would be first line of action. Second, determine if your cooling fan at radiator is coming on. Start engine and allow it to idle until you have reached operating temperature, about 3-10 minutes. With hood open, you can visually and audibly notice the fan kick on after that point within the next 10 minutes. If not, could be bad temperature sensor or fan relay. To test temp. sensor, remove wiring clip on the sensor usually located on or near thermostat housing (follow large hose from top of radiator to where it connects to engine, that is the thermostat housing). Using a multimeter set to OHMS @ 200 , should get a reading of about 81 ohms resistance. If bad, replace, test warm up procedure as before. If still not kicking on, better to take to a mechanic to check relay system if you are not very mechanically savy ;) If fan kicks on primary stage and engine overheats, replace thermostat. Do this by tracing to the housing, remove bolts on housing retainer to expose thermostat,replace, reseal with gasket and RTV sealant (use sparingly) or if o-ring type, no sealant used. Spring end toward engine block, then put housing back on tighten bolts a good hand tight, do not overtighten, as you can crack the aluminum housing. Use warm up procedure as before and check to see if still overheating. If so, could be clogged radiator. If you have leaks, trace to origin, that is most likely the cause. Let us know what you find.

Car is overheating. How do i replace the thermostat so the coolant can circulate through the bottom of the system.

The thermostat is located on the drivers bottom front corner of the motor. You will see what looks like a conventional thermostat housing bolted in with two bolts.Starting with a cold engine drain the coolant. Loosen the clamp for the lower radiator hose where it connects to the thermostat housing and pull the hose off. Remove the two bolts and you will find the thermostat under it. Make note of the orientation of the original thermostat. Install the new thermostat with a new gasket in the same orientation as the original and bolt on the housing. Reinstall the hose. Be sure to close the radiator drain and refill with the correct coolant/water mix.

I have a 1992 acura legend. i change the main relay. i am still have the same problem with starting. what else can it be?

Sorry, if it wasn't the relay. I had AAA say it was the fuel pump and had replaced it and the filter before finding the pump wasn't getting powered up. If there is a bad ground (it was a wire bolted to the thermostat housing on the Cl) you will have to go thru them one by one. Fuel pressure is harder to verify without guages-are the injectors ticking?

Car was running fine, then the engine light came on, thought maybe it was the fuel pump, but now the fan doesn't kick in anymore, Is the fuel pump supposed to stay on? 'Cause it doesn't sound like it stays...

Check the fan relay for the radiator fan to see if it is functioning or not. You might need a new radiator fan motor and or relay switch. Replace the thermostat housing and put a new thermostat and gasket in.You can probably find a used housing at a wrecking yard, otherwise they are pretty cheap to buy new.I would recommend buying a new one. CHECK THE FAN MOTOR.
