A car can overheat for a lot of reasons.First make sure this is the problem by checking the radiator hose or water level. Open the radiator cap when the car is cold, crank it, and then watch the water level. If it drops when the car warms up this is not the problem.
The tools you will need will depend on what you have to take off to get to it. If you can access the thermostat you should only need a ratchet or wrench to remove it and something to scrape off old gasket with.
Location:The thermostat should be inside the thermostat housing on the motor. Follow your top radiator hose to the place where it goes into the motor. There should be a sort of dome shaped housing there with probably a bolt on either side of it.The thermostat is inside that.
This is a reasonably easy job, but shouldn't be done carelessly. It's also kind of messy.
When the car is cold remove the bolts from the housing with a ratchet. Lots of coolant and water will drain out. But the thermostat will be visible.Pay attention to which side of the thermostat is up.It should just lift up. Remove all the old gasket from around the area and clean it up well. Replace the thermostat and gasket then the bolts. Be very careful not to over tighten the bolts or the housing will be ruined.

Thermostat replacement


HI there,

Well first of all you may please follow the steps below -

1. Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat intake tube by loosening the retaining clip with a screwdriver. Slide the clip toward the radiator and pull the hose off the thermostat intake tube. 2. Remove the two 10-mm bolts that hold the thermostat intake tube onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent. Pull the intake tube off the intake manifold and inspect it for cracks. If any cracks are present, then you need a new thermostat intake tube.
3. Pull the old thermostat and thermostat gasket off the engine with your hands and replace them both with new ones. The thermostat will be marked with "top." This end should stick out of the engine. 4. Place the thermostat intake tube back onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent and bolt it back into place. 5. Slide the radiator hose back on to the thermostat intake tube and secure it in place with the retaining clip. A band clamp can be used in place of the retaining clip for extra clamping pressure. Post comments for further help or information............

Good Luck!!

take out the old thermostat and back flush the system.check the water pump for any leaks and for any perished hoses.then refill with antifreeze with a 50/50 mix.any problems will obvious as/when you get to them (the radiator for hyundai is week by the way around the top join.as it is soldered.)

My daughter has owned a 2005 Hyundai Accent since it was new. The car has NO heat. The blower works but it produces no heat and never has. There is fluid in the radiator.


couple possibilities - is the engine temp gauge in the normal range? if not, could be a thermostat issue. otherwise, have seen heater cores plug up on these. a heater core flush followed by a full cooling system flush will fix this.

Why is my 1998 hyundai accent overheating?


The head gasket has gone so pressure builds up in the cooling system and forces water out of the overflow

You need someone to take the head off , skim it and fit a new gasket

Smoke could be caused by a leak from head gaskets, replace head gasket, k. Temperature increase could be caused by a defective thermostat or a slightly plugged radiator. Clean radiator and thermostat.
