Confusing an oxygen sensor for a temperature sensor is not a good sign normally exhibited by someone who is on the good track of solving a car problem. Do you give off a 'car guy' vibe? I find it super odd for the fan to cycle on and off at that safe temperature range as a result of the water pump failing. Did I get ripped off??? So browse around our great selection of car parts and let's help with that auto repair or car upgrade! Any specifics to the location you could pass on? Do you give off a 'car guy' vibe? I don't know what happened the car stayed steel for two days and yesterday i decided to see how high my engine temp would go. Radiator fan is making very loud strange short noises like fan would literally spin at the max speed making very loud noise for 3-5 secs and turn off than after 5-10 secs it would spin again and again in circle. Although I guess men can give off a 'clueless housewife' vibe- call it 'clueless attorney vibe'. Or even more important: are you sure the temperature sensor is faulty? If anyone had the same problem please help me out :bawling: Absolutely not! There is then a fair chance to get sound back as soon I drop the phone after a phone call but it does not always work.
This warranty applies to any vehicle registered in the 50 states of the U. Made no sense to why the fan would run with temperatures looking ok. I noticed when the engine temp reaches 105c aux fan kicks in and cool down the engine. Can anyone provide clarity on how to find the sensor exactly? Guys what is the normal operating temperature for e70 2012 engine 3. For a do-it-yourself diagnosis, first you wanna check the fan to see if it can free spin. What temperature are you watching? My water pump and thermostat arriving this Tuesday. That's what happening with my car right now.
I am using torque-bhp lite free app, watching engine coolant temperature. My water pump and thermostat arriving this Tuesday. Having same issue with my '12 X5. Drove home no high temp warnings, the fan did make a sound. You are lucky that is N55 engine that has open deck and much better flow of coolant. The overheating alarm is also inconsistent. This is a device that takes a small amount of voltage computer signal , and passes it off through a magnetically induced switch to a higher voltage- like a relay race.
Hmm a lot of money for a bad conatct if my guess is right. I've been looking under the bonnet on the passenger side of the vehicle like crazy and I can't seem to find it. If it a N62, it is on the underside of the vehicle, next to the oil drain plug. I have now been watching the temperature and it fluctuates between 90 and 110. Check engine light has never come on, nor have I had any signs of overheating. How many error codes are available from the oil pressure sensor? Removing left and right intake ducts: Lever out expansion rivets 1.
What is the typical response to a Low oil Pressure error? What temperature are you watching? Clueless housewife apparently, but one who is smart enough to ask questions and walk when given clueless answers. If it doesn't suspect a faulty fan relay. Hubs and I then took it to a local garage, who checked the computer, said there is no sign of overheating and not to chase a problem if there wasn't one. Well did test my car yesterday temp seems to be jumping from 95-109c. Next you wanna start the vehicle, and let the temp gauge go to halfway. Failure to follow this procedure voids all warranty. That will allow additional cooling off.
Should i still change it? Clueless housewife apparently, but one who is smart enough to ask questions and walk when given clueless answers. Sep 20, 2011 its not a fuse i had the same problem on my 03 x5 it an ac resistor thats at fault it controls your fan once it goes your fan wont come on or comes on intermitently once again the faulty part is a blower motor resistor should be 100 bucs at dealer or if you shop around i got mine for 75 from local parts store carquest Sep 20, 2009. Good call :thumbup: I was also skeptical of this like you. The car would not overheat anymore. Hi guys, I had this problem with my X5 for 2nd week and it's only getting worst need a good. Not like the old days of hard failures, when it dies and thats that.
Replacement brand parts are the most affordable solution for your replacement needs! Provide your vehicle with maximum cooling efficiency. My car only overheated 1 time as I was returning from dealership about aux fan noise. Actually, blindly quoted similar price to change both. Looked to this group of experienced owners to find anyone with similar issues. My water pump and thermostat arriving this Tuesday. Should i still change it? Made using high quality materials for durability and long-time functionality.
I'm so confused :eek::eek::eek: As per adr statement that the water pump is in failing state. If you are driving car for short runs, open up heating all they way and set ventilation to the maximum. Diesel would die by now or new B58 gasoline 3. Can you say why not? I'll do that temp test tomorrow. The hoses can't be more than another couple hundred bucks in parts, the coolant will need to be dumped anyway and most of the hose end retaining clips are easily accessible. Looked to this group of experienced owners to find anyone with similar issues.
Good call :thumbup: I was also skeptical of this like you. However, I drove for an hour even take a highway for 20 mins the temp on highway is much cooler 92-96c when get back into the city 97-109c. Even at 90C the fan cycles on and off. Mine seems to var 91-109C on highway, seems high. By adding antifreeze to a highly functional radiator, you're able to not only enhance engine performance, but also reduce the probability of engine failure at the same time. I think its connected to the lower radiator house, but after putting my head under the hood, I can't seem to find the sensor.
The engine was hot from driving it so the fan also ran loud the whole time. If this cuts the fan on, then the relay is working. Hubs and I then took it to a local garage, who checked the computer, said there is no sign of overheating and not to chase a problem if there wasn't one. . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I replaced the water pump and thermostat and the symptoms fan cycling went away. I would like to know if this symptom is definitely caused by a failing pump or is also an indication of some other sensor or switch failure.
