    thermostat stuck open

  • eglasgow Dec 16, 2008

    I had the thermostat, water pump and radiator changed on my 01 trroper, it worked right for two days, then it reverted to overheating as before. What's going on?

    I am just barely getting heat in my 1988 Cressida. I took in to my shop and they replaced the thermostat but that did not help. They are saying it is probably a clogged heater core or a problem with the heater control valve. Heater core replacement is around $600 done by the shop which is more than I want to pay. The job is probably more than I can take on doing myself. A friend who is a mechanic said to try disconnecting the heater control valve from the vacuum pod to bypass the control valve and see if it is the problem.

    Did the thermostat go in with the large copper end going into the block? The bulk of the thermostat must go in towards the engine. The side with out the spring should be facing out.

Heater not heating very good

If the coolant level is full and the water pump is circulating the coolant through the system adequately then the most like cause is the heater core has become clogged. The heater core can be flushed or replaced to fix the issue.

Heater corer

you could have a stuck thermostat, or faulty heater core, You can by pass the heater core by by using a coupler and joining the hoses together to complete circulation, If the problem persist it is the thermostat or the water pump.

No heat ,

Check the vacuum lines to make sure they are correctly connected and in good shape. If they are not, then the system wont move the dampers to allow hot air into the heat vents. A second possibility is a clogged heater core, which is not allowing hot water to circulate through it. As you say the head has been replaced, I would have someone insure every thing was reconnected correctly. It could be the hoses to the heater core are reversed!

I have a 2002 Olds Intrigue; standard 3.5, 116K miles; Problems started with a minor water leak; first mechanic replaced the Throttle Body gasket; second did an extensive pressure test on the coolant...

most likely heater core and to check if the water pump working..allow vehicle to warm up enough for thermostat to open and check for circulation in the fluid inside the radiator..if see it..water pump works.

No heat on 1999 blazier

Water pump may be worn and needs to be replaced. You can try flushing out the heater core it self buy disconnecting the two heater hose from the water pump and flushing water through it to get any restriction out. Once you flushed out the heater core, reattached the hose at the water pump and see if that helps. If not then your going to have to replace the water pump it self. Good luck

Does your temp gauge read normal? if it does then the thremostat is ok,but sadly the water pump is going bad this is typical of jeeps at an idle the heater cools off because the water pump fins are worn enough to not circulate through the heater core and when you step on the gas the increased rpm move the water fast enough to circulate through the heater,it is possible that the heater core is plugged but I doubt it as a plugged heater core would not get hot either it would be cold or just luke warm all the time.

No heat,ch.thermostat,water is circulating,blower goin strong .

Check the 'heater control valve'. This valve opens when u turn on the heat switch on the dash, so the hot coolant will flow thru the heater core and provide heat. So although the coolant is circulating in the engine, the valve controlling the flow to the heater core is stuck closed, or not working.
