1998 subaru thermostate


The T-Stat is located under the car up front just in front of the oil pan. Watch the video at this link, the owner in the video is replacing the thermostat housing gasket which contains the thermostat. Please be safe and support the car on a safety jack stand, never raise and work under an unsupported car unless you are prone to a death wish.

You need to change the "Coolant Temperature Sensor". That usually controls the fan. If the fan does not run, you will overheat.

No heat occasionally unless i push the excelerator also no overflow hose could it be the thermostat or clogged heater core its a 98 mustang


Yeah, could just be the thermostat. Highly doubtful if heater core is clogged because the heater core would go bad before it clogged. When you push accelerator, that is heating the engine more, therefore circulating more water, and the water is being heated more, and that will push open a thermostat that is going bad. So start there.

Back fires under exceleration pressure ?


Sometimes when the ignition leads get older, they can misfire under a load.
If they haven't been changed in a while, I'd recommend this first.

I do not have enough heat in my 1994 dodge ram truck


I expect the thermostate is stuck partially open not allowing the engine to come to proper temperature. Replace the thermostate found under the goose-neck (follow the upper hose back to the engine) under this piece is the thermostate. Be certain to clean all of the old gasket material away and use a new gasket. Watch to be ceratin the thermostate is not put in upside down, if this happens your issue won't be not enough heat but over heating.
I hope this may have been of help,
Tom

Over heating


The water pump has what's called a 'weeping hole' built into it. If the pump is bad You'll se water coming out of the hole. When was the last time you flushed the radiator? It may be your radiator cap is bad, they should be changed once a year & the radiator flushed. You can also test ur thermostate. take out ur thermostate & put it in a pot of water so that the water covers the thermostate. Then put a cooking thermometer in the pot to & heat the water til it says 195. u should see the car thermostate begin to open. if it don't it's bad & needs replacing.

No heat in 93 Suburban


There is a valve that allows heated water to flow through the heater core when you select heat on your controls. This valve should be located under the hood and one of your heater hoses should run to it. Your valve is stuck or failed for some reason. Check it out.
