Grab hold of the upper radiator hose and follow it back to the engine block.
Where the hose is attached, is the thermostat housing.
Remove the 2 bolts, and VOILA - a thermostat!

No heat just cold air blowing out. Engine overheating. What repair needed?


Probably a coolant leak. Have you checked the level? Most times, very low coolant results in no heat to heater.

need add add antifreeze half antifreeze and water to raise coolant boiling point. replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.wait until engine cool then try starting it up.depends on how long you drove car when engine over heated.if you turn off engine soon as it over heated no harm done.if you kept on driving and engine die of lack of cooling, and car wont crank you could have blown head gasket warped or cracked cylinder head.

it may have a blown head gasket if it keep over heating or there could be just an air lock in the cooling water,, you will need to bleed the air out to stop the over heat as the water is not going around the engine its not opening the thermostat so it cant bleed its self take off a water pipe thats the higest pipe you can find it may have a bleed vent in a pipe were you can bleed it from ,,,top up the rad and header tank take off the bleed nippel when water with no air is coming out and the jobs a good un? run the motor for a time or go for a drive to check its not ever heating again and the heater should by now be blowing hot air,, top up the rad and header tank when its coold down

Put a little heat at first then blow cold air water normally rises


Is the temperture gauge going up, if not it is because the thermostat is stuck open. or your dial is broke on the heat panel.
