Hmm...did you mean to write that or should it have read, extra oil should not cause an engine to stop running? My engine oil was inadvertently overfilled by a half quart once many years ago. I...

Dizzy Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

To be clear, there is no Idle Speed Sensor. There is an Idle Air Control Valve which has a direct impact on the change in idle speed; from a cold start up until the cooling system has warmed enough...

Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

So I've replaced the thermostat. I also performed a "post mortem" on the thermostat I removed by placing it in preheated water at the stove. I used my Universal brand thermometer to verify the water...

Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

Confirmation Bias...sure, that's a fair description. As I said at the end of my last post, I'm not yet ready to say that this problem has been corrected. The upshot of that is this - if the code...

Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

Thank you, 02 LW300. Your FSM and mine read the same way. It's comforting to know some things didn't change...but I can't deny that it makes me wish I had a Tech II or Tech III Scan Tool. :ugh:

Re: Tow Capacity?

That information should be in the Owner's Handbook (hopefully, it's still with the car) and I think that the I answer is likely to be "yes." Those questions will have an answer found within its...

Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

It's an interesting thought to consider. The trouble tree in the FSM makes no mention of the speed sensor in the course of the diagnosis and what it may lead to, but who knows? Perhaps an error with...
