2002 toyota camry temperature and air conditioner gets hot when idling

My vehicles temperature gauge will max out if driving slow or idling, My air conditioner will lose its cooling compacity also. When I get into open air and speed up it scools down and air conditioner works fine. Already washed the radiator off several times thinking it was dirt buildup.

SOURCE: 1994 2.2L toyota camry radiator fans do not work

Hi.....

The Normal Temperature Range to the Fan Start is: A/C ON 181 F.
A/C OFF 199 F. When the Engine Reach this Temperature the Fan should start.

OK. Do this simple test.
1---- Start the engine, Desconnect the ECT Switch located on the Radiator,
See if the Fan come ON. If yes, if not go to step #2
Connect the ECT SWITCH and leave the car Running and with a Temperature gage.
See the temperature, if the Temperature go more than 199 F.
Turn the Engine OFF.
Disconnect the ECT sensor and check for Ground at the WHITE/BLACK wire.
If ground exist, Replace the ECT switch.
But if not. Check the wire for any damaged, and the ground at the Front Left Fender.
Repair as need.

2---- check the Fuse link RDI FAN . 30 amp.
Check the Fuse link CDS FAN 30 amp.
Replace if need.
And Return to step # 1.
Check the Radiator fan Relay, Rad fan relay 2 and 3. Replace if need.

Ok. I hope this help on your question.
I can give to you the WIRING DIAGRAM of the Fans, But I need a E-MAIL adress to do that.

Thank you for use fixya....

SOURCE: 91 toyota 4x4 22re overheats on highway, but not at idle.

original issue sounded like thermostat but now that you have lost power i would have to say thermostat, blown head gasket, and warped head

to check thermostat find and remove place in pot of boiling water the see if it opens, then to ice water to check if closes.


the only way i know to check headgasket and head is to check oil and water. oil will have water in it, and water iw have oil in it

Hi,

Firstly, ensure you have the required 'mixture' of coolant/water (must have required coolant).

Second, I would recommend you re-test all the cooling system sensors again (make sure they're within specifications), in case a new one is faulty.

Third, ensure the new thermostat was of the correct temp setting (they all differ), so that it opens at the required time. Most cooling systems operate within 90 - 100degC.

Fourth, make sure the radiator (and associated hoses) aren't blocked.

If your temp gauge is reading higher than normal, but NOT in the danger zone...then this can be considered normal (especially if you've replaced with new components) and nothing to be concerned about.

However, if the temp gauge IS in the danger zone....then this suggests the coolant is not flowing through the cooling system properly.

If all above components test ok, then it's possible your water pump may not be pumping enough volume.

Cheers,

Will a bad Intake Air Temperature sensor on a 2002 toyota camary make the car to not start?


It depends on the failure. If the circuit to the intake air temperature sensor is open, it most likely will start but it may not run or idle correctly because it will cause the computer to go into failsafe mode. If the circuits to the sensor are shorted together or shorted to ground it could affect several other sensors and cause all kinds of problems including a no-start condition.
The Intake Air Temperature sensor in your vehicle is built into the Mass AirFlow sensor and could affect the operation of the Mass Airflow depending on the particular failure. Mass Airflow sensor problems are a common cause of no-starts.

ELectic fans cut off and on what causes that on a 98 toyota camry


It is normal for the electric fan to cut off and on while the vehicle is running, there is a sensor in th radiator controlling the fans, switching them in when it senses the coolant temperature is too hot. The fans then run until the temperature reaches normal range again and the fans switch off. It is also normal for the fans to cut off and on with the air conditioning running. If they are coming on at any other time, such as when the engine is not up to half way on the gauge and the air con is off, there is likely a problem with the sensor or relay.

Engine over heating


Check /replace the cooling fan activation (temperature sensor) switch on the engine.
(Note .. this is a separate temp sensor to that which drives the temperature gauge).

2003 Honda Civic runs hot when idling.


Check the cooling fan switch. It appears your auxiliary electric cooling fan isn't going on when at idle. and engine temp increases. While you are driving, air is being rammed thru your radiator as you cruise along, so it isn't overheating, at idle, that isn't happening, and the fan should go on as the temp goes up. When the ac is switched on, the fan is being signaled to operate due to the heavy ac load on the cooling system.

Nissan Altima no cool air blowing or hot air blowing


Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
