    Hi. Please allow me to assist...



    First: Did you use a Toyota thermostat? The factory thermostats have an air bleed valve, where the aftermarket ones do not.



    Second: DId you bleed all of the air from the cooling system?

    If not, it will overheat.



    If you need further assistance, please feel free to respond back.

Is is safe to take off thermostat on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited?


Thermostats are used to keep the engine operating in the optimum temperature range. Generally speaking, it is safe to remove the thermostat in summer conditions. Coolant will flow continuously with no restriction. In winter months and below freezing conditions the engine may not reach proper operating temperature. Removing the thermostat may help you find the possible over-heating problem.

2006 CHEVY COBALT OVERHEATING HAS NEW RADIATOR WATER PUMP AND THERMOSTAT


That is normal, it will not get hot without the thermostat. The water cools in the radiator and falls to the bottom and the bottom hose is cold. This is what cools the engine and stops it from overheating.

I have a 92 Acura Legend L V6 engine. My acura had been running hot until I put a brand new radiator on it, I drove the car for appro 40 miles one way and back, still didn't run hot. The car heater...


Thermostat improperly installed. (backwards) Or possibly you could have a blown head gasket and a bad thermostat at the same time. The head gasket could be letting exhaust gasses into the cooling system. A bad (stuck open) thermostat could "mask" this problem by allowing the coolant to circulate through the radiator when it is not supposed to. Thus, installing a new thermostat would trap the exhaust gasses in the cylinder head and cause the overheating.

Overheating: 1999 bmw 323i m series 2.5 ..Installed: new water pump , thermostat. radiator,new Water Reservoir, cap.. hose on top side hot , lower hose cold even when engine is hot..no water circulating at...


the water pump and thermostat should have solved it. an air pocket can cause that but usually not to that degree.

don't get one of those cheap *** plastic impeller water pump for sissies. Get the metal impeller one. get a cool running thermostat and drill two 3/16" holes in it 180 degreess from each other. you may have installed the t-stat backwards.

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

Coolant bizarre behavior


if car doesn't run hot with no thermostat...you may be air-locking system when installing thermostat. I always fill the engine block up to the thermostat housing to make sure that engine is full of fluid ..then install thermostat...spring facing down..thenfill radiator making sure car is running so as not to air lock system ...run until top hose gets warm ,showing that your thermostat opened
