Your 96 ford contour prone to overheating ive been told its blown head gasket does anybody have this problem before?
yes yes yes. I had to replace my engine the day after I bought it for a warped head, and a scored cylinder because of a head gasket leak that the dealer never fixed, then a year later i replaced the engine again for the same reason, once the head warps it cannot be fixed, only replaced. But usually by then its to late, and the rest of the engine is #@*@ed. Check the usual culprits, water pump, temperature sensors, gaskets to save your engine.
After driving your 1995 buick park ave. for a long time your car won't go over 10 or15 mph If you let it sit try again it will go fine but then will have the same problem Could it be coil packs?
The hot warning light is coming on in your 1998 Monte Carlo then your car briefly stopped you suppose it is the engine overheating what do you do next to fix it before it destroys your engine?
Why would 2001 Ford Taurus be overheating before and after changing thermostat and adding more antifreeze?
Why would a 1995 Ford Contour overheat and the check engine light came on if there is plenty of coolant?
DAngelo: I had this problem with my 97 Contour. The problem was that the water pump needed replacing. The rod in the center of the water pump was actually slipping, so sometimes the pump would be functioning and cooling, and other times not, so my heat gage would go up and down. Fortunately my mechanic had seen this before. ford contours are known for their crappy water pumps you can get an upgraded pump with…
After the engine heats up while driving it begins to jerk and stick and wants to turn off What is the problem?
My1989InlinesixCherokee is still overheating after changing a water pump that was going bad I replaced it the thermostat check the lines for flow and replaced the radiator it was fine before?
Check the relays in the small relay box UNDER THE HOOD. There is a relay that will go out that runs the cooling fan when the car reaches a set temp. If that fan does not come on then it will cause the car to overheat. If that turns out to not be the problem have a mechanic look at whether the head has warped from overheating.
What would you say the problem was for an automatic 1998 Ford Windstar that slips out of gear completely then goes back once you restart it drives for about 15-30 feet and then slips out again?
What can cause a radiator on a 94 ford aerostar 3.0 to keep popping a seal and leaking next to the bottom hose new radiator hoses not overheating?
i had a similar problem on a 97 ford taurus, not overheating but it would boil out the resivior, changed the theromstat, no help, took of the water pump and the impeller was rusted, almost gone, replaced it and it works good, also before changing it, the antifreeze was rust colored. hope this helps.
Normally, you would simply need to step on the brake pedal before shifting out of park. However, if that doesn't work, the shift lock solenoid circuit may have a problem. Finding out exactly where the problem lies is going to be a matter of tracing out the circuit with a multimeter. Unless you're a pretty experienced mechanic, best leave this to a good shop.
Pulley went out 1998 Isuzu rodeo through the serpentine belt oil light came on and is now coming on and going off what would cause this?
If overheating occurred there may be a problem with oil pressure. The oil pump is driven by the timing belt so check for proper adjustment. It is also possible that the disintegrating belt damaged the wiring to the oil pressure sending unit so go over the wiring harness to be sure. Shortly before losing my engine completely I had the same problem and it seemed that it all started from an overheating incident. Verify that…
I don't have an answer but i am having the same problem, 4cly temp. gage keeps going to the red, funny thing is the fill tank does not get to the point of steaming and boiling over, but the fan kicks in when temp rises and works fine? i already tried replacing the thermostat today and kept it full of antifreeze, the head gasket was totally redone last year. next I'm going to try to…
How do you tell if car is really overheating or if temp gauge or sendor is bad on a 97 Ford Contour V6 The thermostat and fans don't come on until gauge says car is almost already overheating.?
1. Accoring to the owners manual as long as the guage needel is between the N and L of NORMAL all is OK. 2. I used a lazer thermometer to check the temps of the radiator inlet hose and radiator fins & tubes, near the rad inlet. The max temp I recordered before the fan came on was 170 F - well below the boiling point. I repeated the test 3 mor times - same…
If still overheating after replacing thermostat water pump and flushing radiator you can run for approx 5 miles before overheating Is this a blow head gasket?
On fusionfall you went to the loading screen that's right before the character creator screen and it just close out do anybody know how you can fix it?
Maps can be created with differing scales. These days, it's childishly simple for the cartographer to change any scale on any parameter before printing. It's possible one of your maps is 10 meters/interval while the other is 5 Or, if one of your maps was printed before SI was made standard, it might be 'Imperial' Or, if one of your maps was published in US First things to check on any map; Date, scale, orientation…
First thing to do is check the coolant level.MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COLD BEFORE REMOVING THE RAD CAP.If the coolant level is low, it is most likely due to a leak.The thermostat might be sticking,or perhaps the electric cooling fan is not turning on when it is supposed to, it is controlled by the vehicle`s computer.Worst case scenario could be a faulty head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. I suppose it could be…
