Have replaced my thermastat in 99 cav. 2 cyl. 3 x's, thermostat's are good they opened in boiling hot water, but when I put them in car they dont open up and car overheats very quickly, I have been driving...

Make sure that the gasket is put in right. If put in wrong, it can keep the thermostat from opening. Also make sure that you put the thermostat in the right. The sensor coil or slug goes toward the engine. The thermostat should be stamped showing the proper direction. I would go ahead and buy a new one just to be sure. They are cheap.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1995 Saturn SW series, 1.9L engine? My temp sometimes runs higher than normal, and have been told that the thermostat might be sticking.

i am not sure here as never seen a saturn but as its a GM product and a 1.9 engine i think it may have the same engine as a europeon opel product ,if it is then its behind the timing belt cover on the cylinder head .But iam no doubt wrong ?? but i could be right

Ym oldsmobile cutlass supreme wont start and i put

Worst case or one suggestion might be the timing chain. I bet I get some flack here from pros and dealer techs, but the slow cranking is what I keyed off of. Iam sure the knowledgable olds folks will help you. Also bad battery cables,bad starter or just it's solenoid. Do you feel it is a starter issue as in cranking or no start as won't stay running?

Put new heat thermostat in still wont get warm help

Did you get the right thermostat they have different thermostat you probably want one that will kick on soon so find one that is around 65-80 degrees. Or you might need to just check to see if you need more antifreeze this is usually the problem when it gets low the heater doesn't get warm but since you replaced your thermostat I believe your antifreeze may be to low.
