Question about 2006 Chrysler 300

2 Answers

I have a 2006 chrysler 300 it will not reach operating temperature. It warms up while idleing like normal, but once I start driving on the highway the temperature goes back down. This happens when the outside temperature is below 45 degrees. I have had the thermostat replaced and I still have the same problem. This also causes my heater to blow cool air

I have had 3 thermostats in a row from an auto parts store, "Never Again Purchase Anything" that were defective out of the box.

As you well know the thermostat is what regulates the water flow to maintain the correct operating temp. If you have ever had your heater hoses replaced They come with a restriction office to hold the water in the heater core. If they were not put back in then you have a free flowing bypass through the heater core the size of a standard garden hose.

If thermostat is ok then you could have an air lock in your radiator.
Possible water pump not working properly such as the impellor slipping..
Radiator may be partly plugged and not letting the fluid flow.
Are your belts tight enough so they do not slip. Your main belt lightener may not be working so when the engine speeds up it slips instead of working.

May be a bad head gasket check oil for signs of coolant mixing in there may be a cracked head or even a bad head gasket. Going by what you said that there is NO visible leak the only other way for you to be loosing coolant if for it be burning out by engine or mixing in oil. To check for mixing check under oil cap for creamish-while residue or oil looking like milk shake. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: pull to a stop light and the heater starts blowing cool air

sounds like you need to either...add anti-freeze solution to your radiator...or worse case...coolant pump is starting to fail or heater coil is clogged..if coil is suspected to be clogged....do a radiator flush...reverse and foward flush the coil only...hope this helps

When the engine temp looks normal on the gauge but you get no heat inside unless your keeping the RPMs up by driving it,It usually means the fluid in the radiator is very low.wait until it is cooled completely and remove the radiator cap and fill completely,Check resovour and fill to correct level,

SOURCE: heater blows cold air ,at idle and blower motor

the heater control valve is not opening all the way.
look under the hood on one on the heater hoses .
you should find a vaccum controled heater hose valve.
make sure your not low on coolant also.
also make sure none of the heater hoses are pinched off.

Pt cruiser transmission stick


I would go by the hot reading of the cars transmission fluid. Check while in park and idling, check as you stated on level ground. Wait until the car temperature reaches normal operating temperature then check the fluid, not once but at least two, even three times to make sure your reading is accurate. If it shows a cold reading still then add fluid until it is within the hot reading area/marks. NOTE: be aware that when it says hot meaning the fluid in the transmission is hot, not just the cars motor. So you may want to drive it around to warm it up then come back and park it on a level surface and leave it running. Wait 5 mins or so then go out and check the fluid, again it should read between the hot marks if not, add until it does. Hope this clarifies the proper way to check your transmission fluid.

Camshaft sensor problems


If the sensor detects a problem, it sends a trouble code to the ECM and your "check engine" light will come on. IMO, your symptom sounds like "cold engine" issue. Myself, our 98 Toyota Rav4 will idle rough and engine stalls when put in drive, but the problem goes away when temperature shows the engine had warmed up to operating temperature. FYI the temperature sensor monitors the radiator coolant temperature. Normal engine temperature is when coolant reaches 120 degree fahrenheit. At around 130 to 140 degrees fahrenheit, the coolant thermostat opens to let radiator coolant flow from "bypass" mode to "enter radiator" mode. If it takes longer than 10 minutes for your engine to warm up, its possible the coolant thermostat is stuck in open "enter radiator" mode. When thermostat is close, coolant radiator bypass the radiator to speed up engine warm up, but if its stuck in open, it will take longer to warm up the engine. Another factor is ambient temperature. If its cold below 50 fahrenheit, it will take longer to warm up the engine.

What controls the radiator cooling fans in the ac mode on a pontiac torrent 2006


Well the computer activates the relay for the fans when needed.
You should be able to jumper the relay to check the fan operation.
The fans come on when the ac pressure reaches 200psi or so, not as soon as you turn the ac on.

The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start.

Car misfires but doesn't stall once it has warmed up


Yes friend, that misfire is just that. Called a dead cylinder. Could only be a dirty or faulty injector. Do a ohm-meter test on the unplugged injectors and a compression test on all cylinders with all plugs out if you don't find a faulty injector. Could then be a faulty exhaust valve needing attention.
