Air moving through the radiator cools the coolant which cools the engine. Even without the fan, if you are driving in cold temperatures the result can be very dramatic on the temperature of your coolant (and engine). Car manufacturers are more worried about overheating than about cabin temperatures (same coolant goes thru your heater core) and they usually sell the same cars in all climates. Here is an old Michigan winter trick: try putting cardboard or some type of tarp or bra in front of the radiator. Watch your temperature gauge, though. It it starts getting too hot you might want to make it smaller or cut a hole in it to provide more air.
What would cause my VW golf to cut out whist driving
check the fuse
Yes! I got a 1994 MX6 and it would shut down while driving when your oil is low.
I had a similar problem with my Mazda 626. The car will completely stall while driving and can not be started again except after few minutes.It turned out to be my distributor electronic ignition component gets overheated and stop functioning.When it cools off it starts again. Replacing the distributor solve the problem.
I have replaced the coil and distributor cap.
Yes it could.
If the brakes on a Mazda 6 are squeaking, it could be indicative of a problem. The brake pads could be incorrectly set.
I had the same problem. It would stall out after coasting down a hill. Cleaned the throttle body about six months ago. Has not stalled since then.
Steering fluid leak.
I have a 94 Mazda 626, and i had this issue the starter was bad car would not turn over to start it just died on my while driving came to a stop light and bam died. I change the starter and it started right up now it works every time on the first try.
This question actually refers to a Mazda "6" that stalls when in the stopped position. Sorry about the miss printed info.
the cause of this is probably a bad u joint
Possibly low fuel pressure
A bad tire can cause your 2002 Honda Civic to jerk while driving. A bad ball joint can also cause this issue.
No. A bad starter would cause the car not to start.
There are several things that can cause your 1990 Volvo 740 to stall while driving. The most common cause is a bad fuel pump.
No petrol's a good place to start!
the voltage regulator
Driving through flood water would cause the ignition to fail and stall the engine.
It's almost always a vacuum leak.
Short to ground or overloaded circuit
