 1.  First check the motor cooler for liking (wery small holes).If it is,use special "Anti liking fluid" you can buy it on every gas station.And you wan`t have to buy new part.    2. If isn`t liking?! Check and change the "wather pump". This is a very cheap part and might be save your  engine...!

Honda Pilot 2003, low engine temperature, thermostat was replaced several times, still the engine temp is low.


use a termo laser to check temp of coolant at filler cap ,with cap off run vehicle till you have hot heat coming out of your heater then check with laser. if it reads above 140 then you know 2 things . either the therm sensor is going bad or the temp gauge is bad , make sure the radiator fans come on ,if they do and you have good heat then you have bad gauge.

My heating isn't working, it sometimes works but majority of the time it blows cold. Also when the engine is running, there seems to be a noise coming from the engine, could these be related? Engine temp...


No heat or low heat in a water cooled engine is worthy of an immediate check as major damage to engine could be the result of continuing to drive it. Things to check:

These two things may cause no heat and possible not ever show as a problem on the temp gauge or temp warning light until far to late:
Low coolant/antifreeze level
Frozen coolant/antifreeze
Stuck thermostat

Other possibilities that may/may not show other signs of trouble as well:
Failing water pump (this would also explain some noise, typically like a grinding, scraping or bad bearing noise)
Slipping belt (Typically associated with the famous belt squealing or chirping noise)
Clogged radiator and/or heater core
Non-operating temperature control valve
Stuck thermostat

Hope this helps!

Is the engine actually over heating or just the gauge giving incorrect readings?? The stepper motor in the console's temp gauge could be defective. Have someone with a laser heat gun check the temp of the engine around the thermostat to find the correct temp.

Is your gauge just showing a low temperature? i can guarantee your engine is getting hot. If your gauge is showing low temp you may just have a bad temp sensor.

Hey, saw your posting and just wanted to ask if you found a solution to that problem because I'm having the exact same problem. I just started this morning, my gauge showed it as being in the red area so i figured it was bout to overheat. But when I would accelerate the temp gauge would start to come down to a normal level. But everytime I stop it would elevate to the red area. I havent tried the thermostat thing( it seems it didnt work for you I see) If you find a solution enlighten me at my email...Kbrodie@ci.durham.nc.us

Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, what you describe will happen, the engine will run hot, and the heat won't seem to work (coolant level too low to circulate through the heater core). Hope it's that simple, if not, let me know and I'll attempt to help further. Good luck!
