I hope you have had more problems than just this before you dismiss a car brand.
Do you know if the engine is heating up ? Is the cooling system full of coolant ? Are the heater hoses getting hot ?
If the system is heating up the problem could be a faulty blend door under the dash.

SOURCE: where is my thermostat located on my 2006

Follow the upper radiator hose, and where it connects to the engine, is the cover for the thermostat. There should be two bolts that hold it on, and a seal that will come with the new thermostat. You'll want to clamp off the radiator hose before unhooking it, so it doesn't leak anywhere. Then remove the hose, take the thermostat cover off, and dry everything off. Put the new thermostat in just as the old one came out, put the new seal on where the old one was, and bolt down. Hook the hose back up, and check for leaks periodically for a couple of weeks.

SOURCE: Problem with 2006 Chevrolet Impala --Windshield washer fluid

Sounds like the fuse blew out again. Look at the wiring that goes to the washer fluid pump and check for any place where it might have rubbed against something causing it to short out. Fix this 'short' before you replace the fuse again or you will continue to have problems.

It could be a number of things not only your t-stat but also an empty reserve tank and even your water pump could be bad. make sure to check all those things out before you go on a replacement spree.

I would start with your coolant fans. If they arent working your car will over heat and most of the time go unnoticed until after you've replaced the water pump, the thermostat, the belts, the fluid etc. Start by checking your main fuse box under the hood and your fan relay/ relays for necessary replacement of burned out ones.

2006 impala indicater says engine hot A/C off whats wrong and how to fix

Mine did the same thing. The thermostat was stuck open. Replace thermostat, the problem went away. If stuck open, it doesn't get to operating temperature when cold and indicates the engine is too hot when it's warm outside.

It may need a thermostat but first always do the obvious make sure that the reserve tank for the antifreeze is 3/4 full, low antifreeze can cause a loss of heat. First check that then do the thermostat. Be sure to bleed out the air from the system look for the bleeder screw it is located at the highest spot on the systems connections usually at the upper hoses housing, unscrew to bleed after the motor has warmed up while running.

Where is the thermostat located

thermostat is located at the end of the lower radiator hose, not the upper like most vehicles. Remove the two bolts (most likely 10mm, you'll need a deep socket 10mm) then the housing. The thermostat is in the housing. remove and replace with a new one.

No heat when engine temp is normal.

Had the same problem with my 2006 Impala with the 3.5 engine - there is an air pocket in the heater core. With the engine cold, remove the upper heater hose (marked with blue tape in the picture) and add water to the hose until coolant comes out of the metal cross-over tube. Fix takes 5 minutes…all you need is a pair of pliers and a funnel.f7b2b4c.jpg
