Having problems with your 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ?
I HAVE REPLASED A USED ENGINE NOW I HAVE GOT OVER HEATING PROBLEM
Hope not that is the reason for being a used engin. Replce the thermostat and if it is still over heating I think the head gasket might be leaking. To check the gasket, open the rediator cap and start the engin. If it is leaking the water level will rise or there will bubbles coming out. Good luck.

Car heat i got my radiator flushed and changed, got a new thermostat, and heater core flushed. but the heat comes on warm and when it gets hot (engine) it blows cold. if the theory of one hose is very warm (problem being under the dash) and both hoses are cold (problem being the engine) what are the possible answers for either engine or dash problems so i would know
Park your unit on a slight incline, start cold w/ radiator cap removed and interior heat on full bore. This will burp or release your air from your cooling system. Add 50/50 until radiator is full. When you replace any good amount of coolant in post ... 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

Overheating slowly Just bought a used 2005 Dodge Stratus. When we picked it up, my son drove it 50 miles on the interstate with no problem. Then he parked for 15-20 minutes and left the car running with the AC on. The engine began to heat up and neared the red zone before he shut it off. The coolant appeared a bit low so he got some and added it. The car sat for an hour and then I started it up. Let it ran for maybe 15 minutes. Tried AC. Compressor ran but no cold air came out. After about
Make sure the radiator cooling fans are both coming on when the A/C is turned on. This cools down the condenser which is mounted in front of the radiator. Dodge has had issues with the fan controls for years. There is a fan control module which turns ... 2005 Dodge Stratus
Replaced the 2 O2 sensors in front of engine. was wired wrong because dealer that i got car from years ago cut from engine harness, timing belt broke replaced it and the water pump. car started to over heat and would not stay running. took it in to the dodge dealership and got it to crank and stay running but the over heating problem is still there. is this a bad or cracked head or is it something simple that im not doing right. it runs fine just over heats after about 15 to 20 mins of running.
Is the electric fan coming on?if not it will do exactly what you describe.\015\012once in a while at a steady 40mph speed,it may cool down.\015\012there is a fan switch on the radiator that drives a fan relay.\015\012you can wire 12 ... 2001 Dodge Stratus
2.7 Engine I bought my college daughter a 2004 Dodge 4 with the 2.7 engine. It now has 40,000 miles on it. I didn't really do the research on this engine before I bought it and now all I hear what a bad engine it is from car experts. I'm curious if there are any people who use this site that have put a least 100,000 miles on this engine without the sludge problem ruining the engine. Also, I'd like to know what maintenance schedule was used for those who got longevity with this engine. I currentl

I've got a vauxhall combo van that won't start. I have had this problem since the engine over-heated and cut out. People have said it could be the head gasket. I've bought a new battery and can hear the starter motor trying to tick the engine over but theres nothing happening. I got some jump leads for it and it won't tick over or even bump start. Now i've been told the engine has ceased up. Is this true?

Engine problems I recently bought an used 2004 Suzuki Forenza with 65,000 miles. It is a beautiful car but I have taken it back to the dealer 4 going on 5 times to fix the following problem. It started off that the check engine light would come at random times. I took it up to the service dept. and they hooked it up to the computer and didn't find anything wrong so I brought it home. They suggested that if it happened after I got gas that maybe the gas cap wasn't tight. The check engine light co

My equinox is over heating when stoped at a light fans work fine, changed thermistat and still the same problem while using the air or not using the air I have to put the truck in park and keep the rpms at about 2300 until I get moving again is this a common problem with this engine?
Sounds like the fins in the water pump have disengauged from the shaft. raising the rpms will help. you really need to remove the water pump and see if it is in good shape, better off changing it if it is out. best of luck. ... 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

5 months ago I got the Check Engine light on my 2001 Cadilac Deville. When the diagnostic tester was used they got a code P0741. I had the transmission overhauled and now 5 months later I have the same problem with the code P0741. The mechanic performed the same fix a second time including the converter, the TCC and solenoid and still the problem persists. What can we do now??

When I drive my ford focus 2000 se more than 15 miles the air conditioner causes my engine heat gauge to rise high. This overheating issue only happens while using air conditioner. Heater works fine! Also, once the car overheats the first interval of using air, it takes less and less time to overheat again. I can shut the car off and instantly turn back on and the heat gauge returns to normal. What could be my problem? The cooling seems to work fine and there is no strange noises during this

2003 Jeep grand cherokee, 6 cyl; Had a slew of problems. My transmission was slipping, shuddering when you got to 51 to 54 mph, and speedometer was haywire causing me to use my gps to check speed. Check engine light was on, codes 306 and 123. Checked the tps voltages, found that the Haynes manual had me checking the wrong pins for voltages. Got that squared away and found I had to replace the TPS again. Erased codes, now no check engine light. Wasn't aware that the TPS could cause so much...Repl

CJ7 Dies I got a used 1996 CJ7 (Ford) for my birthday about 8 years ago, and it drove just fine for alittle over a year and then starting having problems with the engine dying on me. I have taken it to pep boys where they had it for two weeks, paid $700 dollars for their services. One thing that I do rememeber that they did was replace the fuel pump. I took it home, and not even a week later it started dying on me at every stop light, stop sign. I got a new carberator for it, and same problem. T

Got a preowned 2004 318i executive series E46 facelifted two months ago, comes with 2 sets of ignition key with remote on fob. Suddenly, 1 key that can operate the keyless entry will not start the engine. Its just silent but with all the lights, horn, radio working, nothing happens when I switch it to turn on the engine. I thought its a computer problem or a battery problem (comes with newly replaced battery, AC Delco brand. I tried using the other set of key and voila, the car started. But when

I have flushed heater core, replaced coolant temperature gauage,replaced thermostat, water pump, timing belt, flushed engine block, and radiator. Got a lot of brown sludge out of heater core and radiator. All is clean now and still using G012 coolant. Only get heat in Econ mode, no heat at all in Auto mode. I pressed recirc and econ and the only code shows up is 513 which is engine temp is too low and air control module is not correct. But I have resolved both of these. Pressing fan down,cold b

98 4 runner MAF problem. Was replaced 1 year ago with after market MAF. Check engine light would come on every 3 months. They would clean it and clear code. Now it only lasts 2 weeks. Took it to Toyota - they say the problem is that it is not a toyota MAF which would cost approx. $1100. My mechanic went and got one from a 4runner in the junk yard for me since there was no recourse on the after market one by now. I've had the used toyota MAF in my truck for 2 weeks now - and the check engine ligh

No power but car cranks -2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 250,000KM - Not sure if related but the car just sat for 10 days when I was on Vacation. It started firt time this morning no problem, I put on the heated seats, window defrosters, wipers and radio. About 5 min later when I got to the 3rd stop sign it died out. Now car cranks over no problem so seems like battery has lots of power to crank the starter but all other electrical is dead (except for the check engine light). Note the check engine ligh
