Thermostats come in different heat opening temps. Try one that opens at a higher temp.

Blower control


Sounds like a thermostat and/ or the system is low on coolant.
Its probably not going to reach 200 degrees when the outside air temp is below freezing, but you should get plenty of heat if the system is working correctly.

Feul smell in car when cold out


The car will run richer in cold weather, especially at start. You may have an exhaust leak. Put something over the tail pipe and listen for hissing under the car. Any hiss is an exhaust leak, must be fixed.
The gauge thing may be an old, loose alternator belt, giving low voltage when things are cold and stiff. A new belt may help. Do a voltage check while watching the gauges..

Air from heater not getting warm. At best, tepid. Is it probably the thermostat, and if so, how do you replace it?


if your temp gauge reads normal then it needs a new heater core
if it reads colder then normal then it needs thermastate
it is located on the upper radiator hose on motor

Why my heater in 2000 plymouth breeze only gives a little heat? Could it be a hose ? I know it's not the thermostat,the blowers ar working. I am wonding if theres some hoses that could be leaking?I don't...


it could be the cold air blend door or the thermostat is the engine temp up to the middle of the gauge or close to it if so then thermostat is ok if not then go ahead and replace it.

Temperature gauge is fluctuating while driving.


I'm thinking the coolnat level is low, and this might be caused by a bad head gasket - At least $800 to fix - sorry.

93'Saturn engine problem:


engine coolant temp sensor is most likely cracked.. I know it sounds strange but pull it if your looking at the engine it is on the right side of the head Will make the car hard to start, smoke, and the idle will often race up and down.. easy to fix 15 dollars or so..
