-You mean your car never get hotter than 60*...?
If so, the thermostat is open all the time. Or stuck at open position.
Possibly need new thermostat.

SOURCE: 2000 Pontiac Grand AM little heat being produced.

1st thing to do is change the thermostat. It is either missing, or stuck open (you provide good info). This is why the car is not running at operating temp and why you have little heat. The no blower for settings 1-4 probably means a bad switch.

SOURCE: Heat will not shut off when air conditioning is on

are you sure your ac is working at all. a old school solution would be to put a cutoff going to the heater core in the water hose.

Sounds like you have a bad temp control actuator.

I have a problem with my car Peugeot 207 1.4 8 valve petrol which was serviced and had changed thermostat. Everything was fine until winter started, at temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius temperature...


This is totally normal. All radiators contain an antifreeze/ antiboil component when filled as per manufacturers instructions. This stabilizers the temp of the coolant, reducing fluctuations in temperature. The thermostat is heat responsive. Basically a piece of spring steel heated to a temperature then cooled, so as to retain the memory of when to react. Replacing the water temp sensor on this occasion was probably unnecessary, tho in saying that, I have replaced mine & friends with beneficial results.

Yesterday my temperature gauge in my truck was going crazy because it was low on fluid, but after putting fluid in it my gauge will not hardly go above 100 degrees, any idea what that might be?

2001 Olds Aurora. The fan is blowing but very little heat is coming out. Maybe 60 degrees tops. Where should I begin my trouble shooting to see what needs replacing?


First check to see that the cooling system is properly filled.
Next, watch you engine temperature and see that it hits operating temperature. If the thermostat sticks open the engine will never get up to normal temp. On my Aurora, that is exactly midway on the temp gauge.

Sounds like a stuck thermostat. The thermostat cycles open and closed in order to maintain a temperature range, some cars with very sensitive gauges reflect this opening and closing, but most cars have gauges that are somewhat less responsive in order to keep people from thinking something is wrong. I would defineately replace the thermostat and flush the cooling system, replacing the fluid with fresh.

Could be a thermostat issue?


Could be a faulty thermostat. Take a piece of cardbourd and cut it so you can put it in front of the radiator and fix it so it will stay there. Drive the car and watch your temperature gauge to see if it warms up faster but be careful as to not let it overheat. If it starts to heat up cut a 1/4 of the cardboard so a little more of the radiator shows then watch the temperature gauge. Leave it there for the winter then take it out. That is the cheapest remedy when it is cold. I take it when your heater blows it is not not every warm is that correct?
