It is running hot but no heat. There is a strong antifreeze odor after it has ran. Is it the thermostat?


maybe, it could be that your thermostat has locked in the closed position, not allowing coolant to flow through the engine from the radiator. your best bet is to check your thermostat before starting the engine again to avoid risk of heat damage to engine, the strong antifreeze odor could be from the little bit still in the engine cooking off or a small leak onto a hot engine part. don't really know but check your coolant level and thermostat just to be safe.

My 92 for taurus wagon is blowing cold air instead of hot air, what could be the problem?


Behind the tempearture switch is an arm that is telescopic and raises and lowers the temperature. If this arm is either broken off or loose, it can create an inability to change the temperature. It can also be a problem with the heating unit in the ac in the car.

OVERHEATING


This could be a multitude of things:

Stuck closed thermostat.

Cooling fan not coming on.

Clogged radiator.

Low on coolant.

Water pump failing/leaking.

Head gasket blown, leaking exhaust into antifreeze.

Clogged catalytic converter.

Thermostat: If the Van heats up, then feel the upper radiator hose. If it's cold, then your thermostat is closed. Replace thermostat.

Coolant: If low, simply fill with distilled water and coolant. Low levels will let engine over heat.

Radiator: If there are cold-to-the-touch spots on the radiator after it should be warmed up, then a clogged is probably occuring. Have radiator flushed.

Head Gasket: If you smell exhaust fumes in your coolant reservois tank, then you got a blown head gasket.

Cat Converter: Only can be tested if off the car. Or you could try a non-contact thermometer. These are also good to testing cold spot on radiator or if thermostats are open.

Cooling fan: If mechanical it'll be spinning. If electrical, it should come on automatically with the A/C, or when it gets hot.

Water pump: Will be leaking from the front if it needs replaced. On a van, it's a tough job.

Good luck!
