    THANK YOU FOR THE FAST REPLY. YES I DID THE THERMOSTAT MYSELF MAKING SURE I REPLACED IT THE SAME WAY I TOOKED IT OUT. RIGHT NOW I AM IN MY GARAGE WORKING WITH IT. I TRY SQUEEZING THE HOSES AS YOU SAID BUT NOTHING YET.????????????????

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    i'm sorry so what else can i try? i have my Haynes repair manual book here is and not telling much about the solution.

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    i drove my vehicle yesterday the operating temp was at normal the only thing coming out of the vents is very strong cold air

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    yes, they both are in and out as the book says.

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    the radiator and reserve they both are full. the reserve is to the cold fill line and the radiator to the top. i've notice the radiator cap i could remove it while the truck is on and normal temp. is this normal for it not to splash antifreeze all over when i do this?

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    no is not it still in the same spot is not going down or where ever it should

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    i did turn it on waited with the cap off and the antifreeze in same spot(not moving)

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    where about will i find this valve engine area or ?

  • jaysonbermud Feb 23, 2009

    i'm looking at a diagram for the vacuum of the 4.0 explorer and in ti their is a diverter valve could this be the one you might be talking about

    ok... when it is cool or if you already have it off... start the motor.... wait a few minutes till the thermostat opens... you should see the water flowing (moving)

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    not sure about normal... but not really all that safe to do.... while you had it off did you notice if the water is moving ?

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    i presume that has an overflow tank .... is there enough antifreeze in it ?

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    i was referring to the hoses on the heater core... i did note you mentioned them earlier... but are both hot ?

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    you haven't mentioned the temperature of those hoses

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    ok fair enough. that leaves the temperature of the hoses going in and out of the heater core.... oh and i'm not sure anyone has ever told you but typing in all capital letters is considered yelling and is rude. the caplock key is to the left and centre of your keyboard

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    try squeezing the hoses while it is running in case you have air in the system. also are both the inlet and outlet hoses going to the heater core hot ? and did you replace the thermostat yourself ?



    Robert



    p.s. be careful of the fan while you are squeezing the hoses

Bank 1,sensor 2 .1997 Chevy half ton truck , where is it


downstream oxygen sensor, it is literally under your feet as you sit in the driver's seat. MIGHT E THE SENSOR, MIGHT BE A CLOGGED OR WORN OUT CAT CONVERTER. A pro shop will have an exhaust gas analyzer that they can use to tell which is bad (or both) without turning a wrench.

Or you can gamble and guess. Substitute parts for skill. After all, it's your truck. DO NOT BUY A DIRT CHEAP O2 SENSOR! They typically last a week longer than the warranty. Seriously, like a cheap alarm clock. 25359999-l0u5xrrbjmm23votbgnhzwek-3-0.jpg

Truck getting hot and over heating but there is no heat


You have a vapour lock. The coolant isn't flowing. The remaining water is not cooling your engine evenly so you could crack your engine block. The water that isn't circulating turns to steam. The water pump could need replacing if the impeller failed. You may need a new thermostat. Get someone knowledgeable enough to fill your radiator properly and then keep the overflow reservoir filled to half. Check that bottle at least every week.

I just bought a 97 jetta gt, the heat is not very warm, its full of anti freez, i did have to add some maybe 1/3 gallon, do ya have to bleed this system possibly? if so how? the temp gauge runs about 195...


I can't remember what mid-temp is supposed to be but I find that my 97 Jetta doesn't get up to half way or even near it most of the time. If you are talking about interior heating and your temp gauge doesn't get anywhere near half I'd say that you have a thermostst that doesn't want to close and is keeping it too cool so you're cabin doesn't heat up. I'd recommend thermostat replacement. I still have to change mine and it gets luke warm at best in my car most of the time.

I have an 01 Explorer Sport Track with 100,000 and there are sparks comming from the distributor. Do I need to replace it or is it something more serious?


Without seeing it, my first thought would be plug wires if these are the originals. However, if the sparks are really coming from the coil, it must be working. Just make sure it's bolted down good. This is not very likely a serious problem. I hope this helps.
