My temperature gauge reads low, even to the point where it tells me the engine is cooling instead of heating up to normal running temperature. Even once the needle has indicated a normal running temperature, i.e., pointing straight up, it will often fall off mark, as if the engine has cooled off a lot even though the car is still running.


Check to see if you have voltage at the wire that connects to gauge, then check for continuity on gauge terminals to see if it's ok. almost sounds like it might be the gauge ... 2000 Volkswagen Golf

I have a 96 k1500 4x4 pickup. My 4x4 isnt working properly. The 2hi light never lights up even though it is in 2hi. The transfer case sill lock in low gear when activated, but the front axle will not lock in. The front axle will not lock in for 4hi or 4lo unless you pull the actuator switch on the top drivers side of the transfer case and manually activate it, then it engages, but the lights still don't light up accordingly. What do you think could be the problem and what should I look at d

Recently the radiator on my 2000 Toyota Avalon blew. The upper passenger side hose fitting just cracked and broke. Bought a new radiator installed it and it started over heating, never had this problem before (accept when idling in 110 degree traffic jam - live in Phoenix) Now even though we replaced the fan sensor (lower passenger side in the radiator) it still over heats. A mechanic friend of mine suggested it may be air pockets in the system and to raise the front end open the cap and run it


These are notorious air-pocketers..some crucial points: Must maintain a clean 50-50 coolant solution mix ratio, filled to minimum line cold...and to full line after warmed and thermostat has opened. If there is currently no visible signs of loss of ... Toyota Avalon

1989 Chevrolet S-10 4X4 Blazer with 4.3L V6. Solved my problem with 4 wheel drive not engaging. Replaced vacuum swith on transfer case and electric vacuum switch on front axle and now 4 High and 4 Low will engage again. My problem now is this! My 2 Wheel drive and 4 High light will come on the floor panel but my Neutral and 4 Low light will not come on even though it engages just fine. I have taken the panel loose and checked the two panel connectors and checked all 6 bulbs and they look fine. W

Our 2003 Passat had a check engine light, and it turned out the coolant level was low. We brought it in to the dealership to check for a leak, and they couldn't find a coolant leak anywhere, even though the coolant level was below min. They did, however, find that the water pump wasn't functioning properly and needed to be replaced, along with the thermostat. Before we drop the $750, I'm wondering if we should get a second opinion...any info would help.


The answer is a definite yes to the second opinion. I don't know how they mean when they say the pump is not functioning properly. It may be leaking out of the waterpump seal in which case you have an explanation for your water leak. That would be a ... 2003 Volkswagen Passat

The car runs fine when cold but after driving 10 or 15 miles it acts like its hot even though gauge says normal--hesitation on acceleration and rough idling we've also been having trouble with the radiator over pressurizing pushing coolant into reservoir. When the engine cools it doesn't pull the coolant back into the radiator.so the next time you start up the coolant level is low. IT has a new radiator,new water pump,new radiator cap new intake gasket and there's no water in the oil.

I have a 1995 4X4 S10 blazer and the problem I am having is that when I turn on the front defogger there is a heavy smell of radiator fluid coming in though the defogger vent and the front windshield fogs up really bad. I looked and checked the front floor boards to see if its wet from possibly the heater core leaking and is not and even checked the radiator to see if its low and its not either so I am in a lost here what can it be, any help would be greatly apprecaited.


1997 Chevy Blazer... my heater puts out small amount of heat, and its a cool heat, not hot like it should be. Also when fan is running on the heat side, its not as full forced air as when I switch it to the cool side. Can't tell if its the blower, ... 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

2005 Ford F350 SuperDuty 6.0 litre Diesel. Truck was very sluggish to accelerate and little or no boost showing on turbo pressure gauge. Next morning, it started fine, but when put in gear would quit and only run for about 5 seconds when re-started. The coolant level was low and over 4 litres was added to bring up. I started it again this evening and it runs fine in neutral, but appears to be blowing a lot of white smoke. I didn't try driving it yet as I don't want it to stall in the middle of t


Well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage wi ... 2005 Ford F 350 Super Duty

Unfortunately, it sounds like you need a head gasket. The system will hold pressure that long because they normally run at 20 psi. Given the mileage on the car and the model, this is a common failure. I happen to own one myself and have been through ... 1995 Volvo 850

Over heating removed thermostat, flushed engine, added stop leak and is still losing coolant and cant find the leak. Engine is running smooth, but temp rises when stopped after driving and the coolant level light comes on indecating low fluid in radiator, also poor water securlation even with no thermostate

Overheating. 1991 toyota corolla 5spd manual. 4cyl. overheating. oil level and color good. coolant low with oil in it. filled collant with a 50 50 mix, but coolant doesn't flow with engine running. no heat flowing through heater-core with the fan blowing. fan belt ok. engine surges when in neutral. does this mean it may be leaking oil into the coolant through the combustion system?

As I am driving all of the car's gauges pop off and on intermittenly. The speedometer bounces the gas gauge goes from full to empty. The caution lights flicker. At times while driving the car ignition kills. When I initially turn the car on the speedometer gauge goes from 0 to 120 and then back to 0. Sometimes the Low Oil light comes on when I know the levels are where they should be. About 5 months ago I purchase another battery hoping that this would fix the problem Even though Autozone

98 Toyota Corolla LE with 56,000 miles on it. Hadn't had the oil changed even though the check oil light had been on for a several weeks. Driving car on the expressway and suddenly the power went off and I coasted over to the side of the road. It wouldn't start back up. No noise made when turning the key to try to get it to start again. No power, battery is dead. What happened? What is it? What needs to be fixed? I don't want to get rid of it since it has low mileage and has been sittin


How old is the battery? Does it need water? Is the alternator trying to charge the battery? Not changing the oil after sitting for 2 years was a huge mistake. The engine light has a meaning. Ignoring it can be costly. You didn't define 'Power" in yo ... 1998 Toyota Corolla
