    YES IF IT STICKS OPEN IT ISN'T ALLOWING THE COOLANT TO HEAT UP ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU HEAT, ALSO IT MAY AFFECT THE RUNABILITY

Car dash temp gauge reads only about 1/4 the way up on cold days, and does not get really warm st all inside the car. Which or both thermostate needing to be replaced? Thanks Barry


Sounds like the thermostat is shot. i would change that before you do anything else. If the thermostat is stuck open then there will be no heat

My 2005 Grand Prix has no heat and my gas mileage is awful. would changing thermostat fix problem. also at night not sure if this has anything to do with problem only my blue temperature arrows light...


A FAULTY THERMOSTAT STUCK OPEN WILL EFFECT GAS MILEAGE AND CAUSE POOR OR NO HEAT CONDITIONS.THERMOSTAT NOT A HARD JOB TO FIX.ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS DRAIN OUT SOME OF THE COOLANT IN A DRAIN PAN.DRAIN COOLANT LEVEL BELOW THERMOSTAT.IF YOU HAVE 3.8L ENGINE THERMOSTAT HOUSING ON TOP INTAKE MANIFOLD.IF YOU HAVE 5.3L ENGINE FOLLOW TOP RADIATOR HOSE IT WILL LEAD YOU TO THERMOSTAT HOUSING.REMOVE HOUSING THERMOSTAT INSIDE THE HOUSING.IF YOU HAVE WATER INLET ANDTHERMOSTAT IN ONE COMPLETE UNIT OR HOUSING YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE WATER INLET HOUSING WITH NEW THERMOSTAT.THIS TYPE UNIT WILL HAVE LONG PIPE WITH BYPASS PIPE WITH WATER INLET WITH THERMOSTAT. ONCE YOU REPLACE THERMOSTAT.IF YOUR RED ARROWS OFF AND HEAT STILL DONT WORK THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT.WITH NEW THERMOSTAT AND PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE GET COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT.SEE HOW HEAT WORKS.IF NOT YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM AT AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH.

Not heating inside car


One or more of:

1. Your coolant level is low
2. Your thermostat doesn't close and needs to be replaced
3. The valve from the cooling system to the heater core is stuck
4. Your heater core is clogged

No heat, lincoln town car, new heat control valve, new radiator, new water pump, new heater coil


It looks like you changed everything involving the hot water. When the engine is warm, you should be getting hot water going through the heater core. By holding each hose from the heater core you should feel heat from both hoses. I did not see a new thermostat listed.

You need to also have the ductwork under the dash moving correctly. If you find that the water lines from the heater core are both hot, then you need the (doors) or flaps in the ductwork to route the heat inside. I do not see that anything was looked at under the dash.

No heat new thermostat fan blowing cold both


To prove the valve that gives water pass towards the heating if this one does not open you have no heating inside the car

No heat, just cold air.


well its either the clip has come off of your hot cold lever so its not actually changing the temp or your missing the thermostat on your truck or your heater core could be plugged.the lever should not be turned easily it should have to have some pressure to it to turn

What causes a engine not to heat through out?


Make sure theres no air in system..Your heater core could be plugged..Your fans may not be working,Or it very possibly could be the water pump.Or the radiator could be plugged not letting it circulate water..Could also have thermostat in backwards causing it not to flow also..Hope these help you find your problem and good luck Have a Great Day...
