I have Hyundai Elantra GT Manual transmission, the Temperature gage keeps going all the way to high yet the engine is not over heated, and once I change gear the temperature Gage drops to normal and t


Changing gears and the temp gauge have nothing in common. First, check the coolant level. If gets low an air pocket in the engine will cause the gauge to go high, then back to normal. Next would be to check the wiring. could be the gauge/sensor wire is shorting to ground.

My 2005 nissan altima has no heat


If before you change the thermostat,if the car has always had that thermostat in it,and the heater heated before and the engine is not overheating,the thermostat is most likely fine.But that is the cheapest way to start,Lissa is on the right track there.The heating element may need replaced..

The heat in my 2005 Elantra will not work unless I am moving.


Change the thermostat and make sure to bleed the system of air when refilling with coolant.You should have lots of heat in a 2005 Elantra at idle or driving.

My heater on my 2005 uk spec sportage does not seem to put out much heat at all on climate control or manual modes, what can be wrong?


Hello Stan. Change the thermostat under the hood. This is an easy and inexpensive fix and it almost always is the fix to the symptoms you are describing.

If you will be changing the thermostat yourself, here is a link to the step-step instructions http://www.ehow.com/how_7373140_replace-thermostat-2001-kia-sportage.html

Over heating! How can I tell if I need a therostat?


Remove the thermostat from the engine. Look on the thermostat and there should be a temperature stamped on it. Go to the kitchen and put thermostat in a pan with water make sure the thermostat is covered with water. Turn the stove on and watch the thermostat opening before the operating temperature stamped. on the thermostat. Most cars have a 195 degree thermostat. If it opens before the water boils, it should be alright. If not change the thermostat.

No heat in the car


Check louvers that allow air through the heater core ducts. You should hear them move when you change from cold setting to hot setting on temperature dial. Listen closley to the ductwork.

Car overheat frequently and at time the engine sound is very loud


Several things can cause this overheating. Have you recently done a:
1. Check Hoses for Leaks
2. Check Radiator for Leaks --- Also, Change Radiator Cap ( can loose pressure there if
cap is bad)
3. Check Water Pump for Leaks. If Water Pump is bad, you will hear a loud noise from it
4 Complete Tune Up? Should be done at least 1x a Yr. Depending on how much you drive the Vehicle. Includes: Plugs, Plug Wires, Gas Filter, Air Breather Filter, PCV Valve, Adjust Timing,
Check Belts -- see if worn
5. Changed your Thermostat & Gasket and have the correct degree Thermostat in the Vehicle?
6.. Had your Radiator Rod and Cleaned out?
7. Temperture Sending Unit (located near Thermostat) could be bad
8. 02-Sensor (Generally located in the Exhaust Manifold - needs a socket with a space in it
to allow the Socket to fit over this top wire of the 0-2 Sensor )
9. Change oil and oil Filter.
10. Change Gas Tank Cap ---

Do all this yearly ( except the Radiator Rod & Clean ( do every 2-3 yrs), and you should not have
any over-heating nor stalling out, etc. and should pass emissions as well.
