2001 Oldsmobile silhouette. Cold day, 25 F. Engine had been off about two hours and only driven three miles prior to that.

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 between hot and cold with no particular pattern. The hose flowing into the radiator is hot and the one flowing out is cold even after running for up to an hour. When I run the heater on high defrost, the engine temperature remains hot; the temperature only drops occasionally while I am driving and wh
Your radiator is clogged, there is not enough flow thru the radiator to keep the engine cool. A radiator shop should be able to flush and clean it, just beware that when radiators get clogged for a long time and there cleaned, they tend to leak. ... 1991 Honda Accord

I have a 1989 cutlas supreme. two problems.. maybe related. On occasion the outside temperature gauge will go up to 85 or more degrees when it is actually below freezing.

On seperate occasions when the temperature is reading normal, the car will blow hot are as long as it is standing still, As soon as you start to drive a distance it starts to blow cold air.

I have a Chevy Venture 2001 that has serious problems with the engine overheating. I already replaced the thermostat & antifreeze. When I drive it just a block, the needle on the heat dial jumps from cold to hot. Then when I stop the car it jumps back to cold. I suspect it's the water pump that doesn't work, because sometimes when I take the cap off the radiator it appears the water is moving, and other times I take the cap off & it it's not moving. Also when turning on the heat the heat blows c

I have a 91 chevy caprice v8 305. My interior temperture gauge has been bouncing up and down for like 2 weeks now. 2 days ago my heat control valve broke. (The line going from engine into thhe valve busted off). My car usually has a heater that almost runs you out :) . I replaced the valve now the gauge goes from cold to orange hot in less than 2 minutes. The new valve is leaking,there is no vacuum to valve and getting false temp reading. Could this be electrical?

Is there a switch or relay that kicks on/off the alternator on on a 2002 GMC Yukon XL? Problem: Battery drains while driving (or just warming up) and engine dies. Occurs only after startup on cold mornings. At startup, voltmeter gauge does not jump to 14+ as normal and gradually drops until engine dies - as if alternator not kicking in. Reving engine has no effect. I recharge battery, start engine, and things work fine (voltmeter immediately goes to 14+ and stays there) and can drive all day. Th

Inconsistent heat. I also have an 03 Intrepid. Mine will heat up when idling, but when I start driving it stops blowing out hot air, although it is somewhat warm. The temperature gauge rises when I come to a stop then goes to cold when I drive again. Any suggestions as to what may be causing this. Thanks
