Why does my heat gauge go up and down while I am driving down the road


Assuming the thermostat was properly installed, you are low on coolant (dont open cap if engine is hot) or your coolant temp sensor is bad.

How do i check the thermostat in my dodge caravan


remove the thermostat from the engine. You will need a thermometer or some other device to read water temp. hang the thermostat in a pot (Placing the flange at water level) and place on the stove or some heating device. bring the water to the boil while watching the thermostat. As the water temp approaches 80-85c you will see the center of the thermo start to open. As the water approaches the boil thye thermo should be fully open. Check you readings (start to open and full open) with the specs stamped into the body of the thermostat. If they are the same the unit is ok. If it opens too hot or dosen't fully open buy a new one . If It is fully open when cold buy a new one.

reconnect & refill system.there are air bleeders in system 1 at thermo housing & possibly

Replace thermostat. Engine temperature gauge hardly moves and heat into passenger compartment luke warm. Unable to locate thermostat in engine compartment.


The thermostat is where your lower radiator hose meets the engine block. There are three bolts to remove to get to it, if your engine is a V6

I have a 1994 buick park ave. that is not getting enough heat


follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine, the spout the hose hooks to on the engine is the thermostat housing, you unbolt it, pull the old thermostat out, clean the joining surface of the thermo housing and the engine block of debri (old gasket) install new thermostat making sure the spring mechanism on thermostat is installed towards the engine, put the new gasket in place and reinstall the thermostat housing.

My car is running hot do u think i need to change the motor?


buy a radiator flush kit, some prestone flush additive, and even maybe a new thermostat, and a simple haynes manual for your auto. The manual will tell you where and how to change the thermostat, and how to drain the radiator, and how much radiator fluid you will need. The flush kit will instruct you where to put the flush fitting.
Remove the thermo, flush the motor, install new thermo and gasket. Add radiator fluid, done. This should solve your over heating probs. Don't let it over heat! You can cause major probs then.

You could always take it to a shop and pay the $200 to do it for you. My way would cost you less than $50.

please click yes if this helps. thanks

Where is the temperature sensor located on a 2002 hyundai accent


okay temp is not hot enough check thermostat temp rating is it 195 degree etc. are you in a cold climate state? Maybe you need to get a thermostat of a hotter degree[four seasons 195 degree should do it]. If this is what you have (195 deg. thermo) then it might be stuck open not allowing the heat to build up. Another possibility is air in the radiator system, bleed system. This too might be of help the blend door, which is operated by the HOT to COLD lever on your climate control panel, might not be moving all the way closed to stop the cold air from coming in the mix area with the heat. Move the lever back and fourth to feel any change in heat with your hand. Put the defroster on fan on high and put one hand near the defroster vent thee other hand moving the temperature selector. Do you have some sort of heat and you can feel the difference from hot and cold, then my recommendation is to check thermo degree rating, if ok then try to flush radiator, and if that does not work --replace Heater Core. Thank you for allowing me to help you if you need me just write,Lee

01 sts head and gasket good replaced water pump thermo rad cap works good for 2hrs then over heats and no heat im stumpted cooling fans maybe i cant figure it out a bad thermostat even though it was just...


The temp gauge being erratic should have been your sign. Are you sure its overheating or are you going by what you see being registered on the temp guage.Also after doing work such as water pump sometimes you will get air lock in the system you need to bleed the system after performing such a job. If the temp gauge is bad you need to replace it.
