When your car is cold start it and feel the upper radiator hose.. if you can feel coolant moving through the hose then your thermostat is stuck open. Another thing to check is the fan on your radiator. Is it constantly running? Or, your heater core could be bad or plugged up..

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

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.

1992 civic automatic idles okay when cold engine, but idle fluctuate 800 to 2500 RPM when engine hot


" Hunting" is usually indicative of a faulty temp sensor or air flow meter telling lies to your computer.
It can also be vacuum leaks, however these are usually apparent even when cold.
Male sure you don't have any air locks in your cooling system.

Check engine ligh, code po135, sensor heater malfunction


Some O2 sensors have a built in heater because O2 can only be read at high temp. With a built in heater it lets the computer know your emissions sooner rather than waiting for the exhaust to heat up (meanwhile you car would be more of a pollluter while it warms up)

So if this is your code then one of your O2 sensors need changing (newest cars have two sensors)

No heat in my villager


you have air trapped in the engine. very common. park van uphill, fill radiator & reservoir, turn on heater, leave cap loose. wait for engine to warm up to burp air.
