I would drive it around and get it up to temp. Get some stop-leak at the auto parts store and pour it in. Because temperature plays such a vital role in engine performance calculations, can quickly translate into an engine performance issues. Unsolicited commercial postings are not allowed no spam. Then put it in the garage and on jack stands. I'm also looking for a permanent cure! Only the original purchaser of the part can receive a credit after they have purchased a replacement.
This will reduce , and may hinder engine performance. No, there is no sweet smell. There's no need to go after the thermostat. If the site helps you, please consider helping the site by becoming a member. For instance, if the sun sensor reads the sun is hot but the interior sensor reads cold, the inside akes priority.
Do I have your authorization to proceed? When a part is referenced in a fault code, it is actually the cause of that code about half of the time. When I noticed the temperature gauge today I pulled the car into the garage and turned it off. The goal is for the system to achieve a tempurature inside the car that matches the selected temp. It needed a little help but came off without too much trouble. That's what mechanics have to do before they settle on replacing a part. For usage guidelines, see the. When there is an open circuit, as in when the sensor is unplugged, the Engine Computer will see the full 5.
According to them, it will eventually within days or months kill the engine. The intake sensor reads 40 degrees, the outside sensor reads 60 degrees heat from radiator. Have they even performed a coolant pressure test? Detach the secondary air hose from the turbocharger intake manifold. Removing and replacing fuse number 4 sorts the problem, but it returns within about a week. This is a problem solving forum for over 250,000 Saab owners, so expect to see problems discussed here even though our cars are generally very reliable.

Detach the turbocharger intake manifold at the mass air flow sensor, and remove it. For your car there is a short list of instructions to find it. You can test it by checking the ohm resistance at the following coolant temperature: -30C 20-30 ohms -20C 7. After 400 s, the sensor value will be compared with the substitute value. Observe the multimeter, diagnostic tool or test lamp during the check. For this reason, if you suspect that your coolant temperature sensor is having an issue, have the vehicle inspected by a professional technician from YourMechanic. Bought: 4-26-2009 Mar 26, 2013 Oct 6, 2011 Dec 19, 2008 Oct 30, 2007 Jan 25, 2016 The sensor is located near the hood latch area in front of the radiator.
