SOURCE: seized thermostat

Not always. If you have a KA24E (2.4L 4 cyl) engine, the thermostat is located where the lower hose connects to the engine. I have had to change mine. It's easiest to get to if you remove the power steering pump and set it to the side. The thermostat housing is directly below where the PS pump mounts.

SOURCE: Bublling in the thermostat housing and very hot upper radiator hose

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.

Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

SOURCE: no heat in car ,new coolant ,new thermostat

Had the same problem and turned out to be that the Heater Core was clogged. Took it to a Radiator shop and they blew the system out to unclog it. Cost was $25.00. 2005 Grand Prix.

2004 ford ranger v6 3.0 is overheating, what should i be looking for beside normal fluid check?

Check to make sure that your fan is kicking on when the engine heats up. If it is then the next cheapest fix would be to changing the thermostat. A typical thermostat is held onto the engine with 3 bolts under the top radiator hose. The part itself and seal if applicable may only cost you about $6 or a total of $20, once you buy another gallon of radiator fluid.

I just replace the thermostat in my 1983 ford f150 and the coolant is topped up and my gauge says am over heating does anyone have any ideas

you probably have air trapped in the cooling system. Lave the cap loose and warm up the engine till the thermostat opens and top hose is hot. Shut off engine and tighten cap and keep reservoir to full level. Refill as it sucks back into rad.

Broken thermostat on an alfa romeo veloce 2.5 v6

The thermostat is located near the top of the block where the water hose originates and goes into the top of ;the radiator. remove the hose adaptor and you will find the radiator... some have two thermostats but you would have two rubber hoses in that instance... remove the thermostat and replace it and the gasket.... I always get gasket sealant and apply after cleaning everthing with mineral spirits or alcohol etc.
Refil with water a couple of times to get all the air back out of the water jackets and make sure you replace the antifreeze you may loose.
good luck
