I changed thermostat on 2005 buick rendevous ultra 3.6l. still have no heat. whats next?


Was lack of heat in the cabin the only reason you changed the thermostat? Were the radiator hoses hot (or very warm) to the touch before you changed the thermostat? Were the heater hoses hot before you changed the thermostat? Did you get a check engine light and code stating that the engine was not getting (or slow getting) to operating temperature?
Getting heat from your heater depends on a blend door actuator letting air flow through the heater core in the HVAC unit. If your radiator hoses are hot, your heater hoses are hot, and you have no trouble code indicating the engine is not getting to operating temperature, but you are not getting heat inside the car, you need to check your blend door actuator or the control unit for the heater.

My 2005 Grand Prix has no heat and my gas mileage is awful. would changing thermostat fix problem. also at night not sure if this has anything to do with problem only my blue temperature arrows light...


A FAULTY THERMOSTAT STUCK OPEN WILL EFFECT GAS MILEAGE AND CAUSE POOR OR NO HEAT CONDITIONS.THERMOSTAT NOT A HARD JOB TO FIX.ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS DRAIN OUT SOME OF THE COOLANT IN A DRAIN PAN.DRAIN COOLANT LEVEL BELOW THERMOSTAT.IF YOU HAVE 3.8L ENGINE THERMOSTAT HOUSING ON TOP INTAKE MANIFOLD.IF YOU HAVE 5.3L ENGINE FOLLOW TOP RADIATOR HOSE IT WILL LEAD YOU TO THERMOSTAT HOUSING.REMOVE HOUSING THERMOSTAT INSIDE THE HOUSING.IF YOU HAVE WATER INLET ANDTHERMOSTAT IN ONE COMPLETE UNIT OR HOUSING YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE WATER INLET HOUSING WITH NEW THERMOSTAT.THIS TYPE UNIT WILL HAVE LONG PIPE WITH BYPASS PIPE WITH WATER INLET WITH THERMOSTAT. ONCE YOU REPLACE THERMOSTAT.IF YOUR RED ARROWS OFF AND HEAT STILL DONT WORK THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT.WITH NEW THERMOSTAT AND PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE GET COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT.SEE HOW HEAT WORKS.IF NOT YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM AT AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH.

02 stratus with the 3.0 liter in it, noticed the heat was getting weak, then changed the thermostat and now theres no heat and the coolant level is full, please help


New thermostat may be faulty. May be stuck open. Remove rad cap and with rad full and eng cold - start vehicle. The coolant should not circulate until eng reaches design temp of thermostat. Let me know if this helps you.

I have a service engine soon light on. I was told it was either the temp sensor or thermostat. replaced the thermostat and now the heat wont turn on.


Meaning your not getting any heat? I would suspect a higher temp thermostat was put in, and now its taking longer to get heat... Its also possible the thermostat is faulty... Either way, I would try a new thermostat again... The check engine light wont come on from a thermostat so change the CTS...

No heat changed thermostat


Are you saying the engine does not get hot or that your heaters are not working..?
If it's the heaters, change the temp control on the dash to full heat, then trace the heater hoses under the hood from the firewall back to the motor. Hopefully this will locate the heater tap. Now if the tap is vacuum operated, start the motor and check if there is vacuum at the small hose connected to the tap. No vacuum is correct. Now change the heater control to cold and there should now be vacuum at that small hose. if vacuum is still not present, or if you have vacuum but it does not go away no matter where the heater control is placed, suspect the control in the dash.. If the vacuum operation is correct, suspect a blocked or damaged heater valve and replace it..

Heating problem


If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful. Thanks,

Coolant pouring out surge tank


if one radiator hose gets hot and the other doesnt, the the thermostat is shot, but you said you replaced it, it is possible the thermostat has been put in backwards
