    are the t-stats installed in the proper direction with respect to coolant flow? are they the right temp for this vehicle?

Is the temp gauge getting hot as you drive the vehicle or does it remain at a constant temp? if no problem in coolant temp getting too hot (and overheating), then it should not be an issue.

you're sure radiator is filled with 50/50 mix of coolant & water to the top of the cap? if there's an air bubble trapped it could cause a problem. some cars have to be "burped" after refilling with new antifreeze.

if, however, its overheating, then i believe your radiator may be clogged preventing the coolant to flow across the radiator fins and cool properly.

try this. warm the car up (not the point of overheating, but hot enough for the t-stat to open), turn it off, make sure the electric fan is off (or unplug it is so equipped), then run your hand across the radiator. it should feel warm. if you feel cold spots, then that portion of the radiator is clogged preventing flow. new radiator is now in order.

hopefully its only a clogged radiator and not a clogged engine block.

hope this helped.

If my top radiator hose gets hot but not my bottom one does this mean my thermostat is bad


I don't know how did you test your radiator but if you apply below steps you can clarify your problem easier.

If you want to test your radiator:
A) Park your car (it takes more longer to get real temperature values, if the car is moving)
B) Start the engine (don't forget to engage handbrake)
C) Wait around 10 to 15 minute
D) If your top radiator hose gets hot and bottom radiator hose gets warm; your radiator is functional. (In few minutes your radiator fan suppose to work)

If bottom radiator hose is still cold, it means there is a problem at thermostat. If you see any leakage at thermostat housing at the end of above step C, you need to renew thermostat housing gasket too. Even if you buy new thermostat, i suggest you to test it before assembly. If new thermostat doesn't open enough, your car may run so hot.

If you would like to test your thermostat:
A) Boil water in disposable bowl (thermostat may exposure chemical substances)
B) Put thermostat into boiling water.
C) If thermostat opens totaly, it is ready for assembly.

It sounds like it could be a head gasket or some migration of exhaust gas into your water jackets, do a head gasket leak test and that will determine what direction you take next, make sure the top hose has been bled of all air first

Heater does not work


The heater not working.This problem is related to few possibilities 1) The thermostat can be faulty. 2) the heater blower motor resistor is faulty 3) The heater blower motor it self is faulty. ------------ The The blower resistor is behind glove-box on plenum.Connect the 12 volt battery directly to the heater blower motor and see,if the motor runs then its faulty resistor or thermostat.but if no motor running then its faulty motor. The thermostat is located at the top front of the engine.For easy access follow the top radiator hose.The top radiator hose goes in engine .Take that hose out and thermostat will be seen inside. --------- The thermostat and resistor are not very costly part.So you can directly replace them and see if its helping.First confirm motor is working,by directly by passing the blower motor to 12 volt battery. ------------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

1995 honda passport ran hot today and the air did not blow cold. I have recently added about a half gallon of antifreeze. I checked it and it was full. I checked if the water pump appeared to be leaking...


Check the over flow reservoir. If it has been filling up athen that is probably what you've been replacing. It sounds like the thermostat. I would change that first and see if that fixes it. It is located at the frontof the engine. You will have to take off the the hose that comes from the bottom of the radiator to the front of the engine at the thermostat housing. Take the hose off at the housing. Remove the three bolts that hold the housing and reveal the thermostat. You can eae the thermostat out put the gasket back in and put everything back together to see if this solves your problem. If it does then goto autozone, advance, O'reilly's or one of your local car parts dealer and get a new thermostat and replace it.

1998 honda passport themostat location ?


It's on the top front of your engine inside a rounded housing. Follow the top radiator hose - the thing it clamps to is the thermostat housing. I think it's held on by three bolts - two top and one bottom.
