Bad news ,nothiong worse than a cold car so iam assuming this is a 16v job and the thermostat is behind the timing belt which is a summers day type job ,so as a temporary fix put a sheet of cardboard in front of the rad till the weather warms up this will make the engine run hotter and the cars internel heater radiator will be all the cooling it needs in the cold weather

SOURCE: why does my engine not reach normal operating

I suspect you are right with the thermostat angle.

The new thermostats are the opposite to the old ones that used to cook the motor when they failed.
The new ones run too cold in case of failure and also up the fuel consumption because the computer gives a cold motor more fuel than a hot one.

SOURCE: my heater takes a long time to warm up

You may need a new thermostat. They are cheap and easy to install on a blazer. They sell different temp ones. ask for a higher temp thermostat if you want warmer heat. Also it would be a good idea to get the cooling system flushed. That helps a lot.

My 1999 dodge caravan is still overheating. I have already replaced the thermostat and the water pump, also there is no heat. please help me someone!


Hi there.
Well you can either have a problem with either radiator outer {dust/dirt in outer core of radiator or clogged up inside were water goes, or soft hoses,blowen head gasket plus a few others ,but first go to garage to were you blow up your tyres and use the air hose and blow out the radiator core where the air goes in, 2 drain out radiator water and then refill with water at 1 ltr at a time and then check your info car book and find how much water the radiator takes ,if it dosent take all the ltrs then the radiator is blocked inside.
if engine runs rough missing etc then get your Head gasket checked out.
When you say no heat is that with heat on gauge or no heat from heater, as it could be heater blockage same as radiator core. So let me know how you get on.

1992 subaru legacy 2.2 liter overheating and no heat. already replaced waterpump,thermastat, radiator and hoses


You mean the car is running fine but just No Heat?
If so
-Sound like the heater hoses are plug. or the control valve is no function

-Check the heater control valve and flush the heater unit with water of garden hose from both directions.
Q: How do I know that is working or not?
A: Slide the heater control from Hot to cold or cold to hot and check it turn or not. (If not turn at all. The cable is broken or slip off)

No in car heating,blowers working fine but it wont produce heat. Its a 51 plate grand cherokee Thanks


If it won't produce heat then you have an issue with your heater core. The heater core could be bypassed, in which case no hot coolant will get to it to produce heat inside the cabin. The heater core could be stopped up with dirt/debris, in which case the heater core can't radiate heat to produce heat in the cabin. The ducting in the dash could not be allowing the hot air to flow to the vents - therefore no heat in the cabin. I'd start with the heater core and check to see if it is bypassed. This generally happens on older vehicles because the parts can be harder to find.
