2003 kia sedona over heats but put a new thermostat in it the fans work okay


Make sure the cooling system has been bled of all air and is full. Air in the system can cause overheating.Make sure the radiator cap is functioning properly. Worse case scenario is a bad headgasket.

engine running too hot.check coolant level, should be 50/50 antifreeze and water.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.check antifreeze level in the radiator,coolant level should be just below radiator cap, add coolant to overflow jug,should alway be at the full cold mark.empty coolant overflow jug will allow air be drawed in the coolant system causing overheating.if overheating happens when coming to a long stop.could have faulty engine coolant temperature sensor or bad coolant fan fuse or relay.

Does the thermostat effect the heating on a car


yes The heat is transfered from the hot antifreeze and if the thermastat is stuck open the antifreeze won't get hot enough.

Overheating in 2002 sedona


To check if it is the thermostat run the car and when the temp starts going up turn the heat on full blast in the car. If the temp goes down after you turn the heat on than it is your thermostat.

Need to flush the heatercore


your heater core has gone out, thats why there is no heat and thats from leakage of antifreeze. Usually when you can smell burnt antifreeze it usually points to a blown head gasket or cracked head, smell your exhaust and if you smell antifreeze theres your culprit
