SOURCE: 1997 subaru over heats new radeator thermostat water pump

Hi,
Check to make sure the thermostat is installed the correct way around. It's easy to get it wrong.
Bulb part should face the engine block - while the spring should be on the radiator side.

For the price of a replacement - just fit a new one the right way around. Use a new gasket and a smear of blue Hymolar to seal it. Use coppergrease on the thin bolts and don't overtorque.

My 2009 mini-cooper heats and loses power when the ac. is on phoenix az


No, there is nothing to change in the programming. Make sure the fan is coming on high when the engine is hot. If not, please get back to us for troubleshooting. If the fan is coming on high, the thermostat might not be opening fully.

Not enough heat in cabin


It's common to see the mini heater cores clog up a bit and deliver poor heat. Most likely you need a new heater core. Not really a DIY job unless you're experienced. You could try pulling the heater hoses and flushing it out with the hose.

No heat and engine temp gauge is too high


no heat engine running hot sound like faulty thermostat which is sticking closed.if thermostat stuck closed no coolant can circulate through the engine block and radiator causing no heat condition and engine overheating.replace thermostat and radiator pressure or surge tank over jug cap see what happens.

My mini cooper is blowing cold air inside when the car is hot and it start overheating


Clarence,
your mini-cooper may just need a new thermostat. if the thermostat in your car is the original, then 4 years is a goodly amount of time for any thermostat to last. Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (A) stuck open, which causes engine to warm really slowly, and (b) stuck closed, causing overheating and
causing the heater to blow cold air - since the heated coolant can't get past the closed thermostat to
circulate through the heater core (a small radiator-like device used to heat the interior of your car).
Your car's thermostat has failed in mode (B).
Your cost: $5-$15 at any auto parts store.
Project complexity: any handy person could teach themselves to replace a thermostat.

My 1996 Nissan pickup temp gauge does not heat up. Reads cold all the time and the heater does not blow hot just warm. Any suggestions?


Must be cold out! if you never get any heat on gauge check engine open hood and see how hot engine is getting you will know if engine is at operating temp (170-195 degrees). if yes is there a thermostat? if there is one it could be stuck open even then you should still have at least a little heat. change thermostat last resort a little cardboard in front of radiator will get you by in a fix. Exercise caution with cardboard watch gauge don't want to over heat engine...

You either have a leaky hose or need a thermostat the fan is designed to come on to cool the radiator down when the engine heats up. have flushed your system lately it you may need to do this as well.

Overheating


Posible thermastat sticking closed. If thermastat doesn't open heated water is trapped in the engine causing it to run hot and not allowing hot water to travle to the heater core when called for.
