What does the ported vacumm switch do and could it be related to overheating


Overheating is caused by the following:
1. Defective thermostat
2. Clogged radiator with deposits due to age
3. Antifreeze that has not been changed for several years
The ported vacuum switch has nothing to do with the cooling system of your car. It just controls when vacuum gets to a particular part or not.

Check your fluid levels first. My Volkswagen overheating was due to a failed thermostat. From all the other owners I've talked to, the stock thermostat tends to fail pretty quickly

Hello I have a 1989 chevy c1500 truck and when I turn the engine light does not but when heated turns on and you change the alternator and air pump and thought you might be the thermostat that all you have...


I"m not sure what the problem is, this sounds like the engine light is coming on because its overheating and you replaced the airpump and alternator and now you thinks it is the thermostat. if this is correct then yes replace the thermostat and also check the fan clutch, when engine is hot the fan should not spin freely. and last are you sure the engine light is on due to it overheating, if it is due to overheating then check fan clutch and replace the thermostant

I have a 2002 mitsubishi montero sport and we changed the thermostat, did a radiator flush and change radiator cap and the needle passes to mid point (normal) it hasnt overheated but it doesnt stay in...


Where do you live?
This has been a hot summer, bit hotter than usual due to the solar flares going on...
as long as the pointer stays within normal operating range, you must not worry... especially since you changed the thermostat and did a flush, did you make sure you got the right temperature range thermostat installed, rarely but few times that seems to be the problem, hotter thermostat gets installed by mistake.

I have a 03 honda civic the heat works but when your driving you can feel the heat cooling off. now the funny things that if you shut it off and turn it back on it works again. i have back flush the system...


If the engine temp goes down while you are driving , it is a good indication that the thermostat is stuck open. Could be the one you bought was defective , OR , after you installed it , the block overheated due to a vapour lock in the engine , and the new thermostat got cooked.
Vapour lock and overheating is quite common after changing a thermostat if the system was not properly refilled and bled after doing the job.

Why does it continue to over heat even after changingth cylinder head gaskets?


Overheating can be caused by a few different things such as the fans not going on, the thermostat being stuck closed, or blockages in the engine due to deposits (which can be resolved by flushing the cooling system).

If the head gasket was changed this could indicate that the engine overheated due to another problem that caused this.

Loud rattle from engine and overheating


I wonder why the overheating caused you to change the engine instead of checking with the cooling system. Some time back my 323i overheated and coolant expansion tank burst open, but that probably due to ignoring the coolant level low light for a couple of days. I replaced the coolant expansion tank, thermostat and few hoses connected with the tank and it worked fine for me.
Try to check you coolant level - may be you should have replaced your water pump and not the engine.
