what year ? if it is say 2000 sportage with double overhead cam, possible real damage done, this IS an interference engine. In english, if timing belt breaks while engine is running severe damage can be done to valves, cams, pistons,etc. A $50.00 timing belt could easily cost you now $2500.00 to repair engine. If it just broke sitting still and NOT running, $ 458.00 to fix ,include water pump , it is driven by timing belt.
Because it's in park.
Depends. An older Diesel is likely to keep running. A modern, with a full set of electronic engine diagnostic might not.
Yes it will, engine coolant still flows through it when engine is running.
If the engine is running it is using fuel.
??? i have a work truck that is 600,000 plus and still running ???
this happened on me, it turned out to be the earth strap from the engine to the chassis had gone rotten and broke loose, this stopped the engine from running but it would still turn over
yes. you are still moving in a direction, and the wheels are still spinning, and the engine is still running, and the transmission is still being used.
A coolant leak while the engine is running is likely in the water return hoses. The vehicle can be standing still and in park, but with the engine running the fluids are still being pushed through the system to keep the engine cool. The water return lines generally run from the top left of the radiator when you are standing at the front of the car looking at the engine. Any leak in that system will likely not continue once the engine is stopped as the fluid no longer is pushed through the system.
The engine coolant fan can keep running after the engine is turned off in any car because the temperature gauge is in the radiator. As long as the radiator is still hot, the fan will keep running until the temperature gauge says it has cooled enough.
I've seen this happen in Honda's. Does it remain running for long periods of time or never shut off? If it is only running for a short time, it's cooling off your engine still because it's still really hot. There's nothing wrong with this.
The main reason for performing a dyno test on an engine is to make sure the engine is running smoothly after changes have been made. When you adjust things like fuel and air, you still need to make sure the engine is running properly.
I have 250,000 and still running.
I believe you are "standing", not parked.
Your car can only create cold air if the engine is running to make the coolant work correctly. If your car is idle, your engine is still hot but your engine isn't running so the air you are receiving is actually air heated by the engine.
I have a 1999 with 200,000 miles on it and still running strong.
Is footloose still running
Blower motor switch. Put it on High and it will blow when sitting still with the engine running.
Could be that your idle speed is too high, or engine is running too hot causing the PMC to deliver a richer mixture,
If it is a diesel engine, both will power it (parallel) still running 12 volts
I've got 171k and still running like a champion
I have a '98 Nissan Pathfinder that has over 371000 miles on it and still running strong.
yes it is still running!
Bad alternator? A fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running With engine running should read approx. 13.8-14.2 volts
Run on, a continuation of running after the switch is turned off, can be caused by hot carbon deposits in the engine continuing to ignite the fuel that flows into the running engine. You can buy products to clean out engine carbon. Sometimes just a good run at highway speeds can cure it. Another possibility is engine timing is set incorrectly.
