Possible cylinder head gasket? Is it loosing water? Check engine oil to see if is contaminated with water, inside of oil filler will be a sludge brown colour. Any water coming out of the exhaust or white smoke (steam). Need to have the system pressure tested.

However when I turn the heat on it does not allow the car to heat up immediately, then when my windows are fogged up it takes time to clear the windows what could this be. thank you


It takes time for an engine to warm up. The heat from the heater comes from the water running through the engine. If the engine is cold, it will take a while for the heater to work. If the engine has a thermostat problem, it takes even longer. The thermostat is not supposed to open until the engine is heated up. If it stays open, the cold water takes a lot longer to heat up. A quick check is when the engine is cold, start it up and with the radiator cap off , have a look in at the radiator water. it shouldn't be flowing as the thermostat shouldn't be open. If the water is flowing on a cold engine, I would say the thermostat has jammed open and that's why its taking so long to heat up.

My car was over heating I went and change the thermostat it was shot. went back to normal.


I think that your engine may have seized up. If the new thermostat was installed in the correct direction, I believe that the radiator was plugged up, which caused the engine to over heat. But it could also be that the impellers in the water pump have eroded away. I have never heard of a sensor that shuts off the engine during an over heat event. Excessive heat may have damaged the new thermostat.

No heat already changed the thermostat


Check vacuum hoses. There's one between engine and firewall at the passanger side that operates ur heater. This little creature dries up due heat expossure and cracks causing a vacuum leak that will trigger ur check engine light as well..

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.

Trying to find thermostat can you help


Not Familiar with vehicle but can give you some basic info.The Thermostat could be on top or bottom of engine.It is in a bell shaped housing,follow the Hoses from the Radiator.If you get heat when the Engine shows warm and you don't overheat it's not the Thermostat.If your not getting heat check the level of coolant first.If coolant is low you wont get heat or low heat.If your overheating it could be other problems,Blown Head Gasket.Clogged Radiator,insufficient coolant.Good Luck.

I have a service engine soon light on. I was told it was either the temp sensor or thermostat. replaced the thermostat and now the heat wont turn on.


Meaning your not getting any heat? I would suspect a higher temp thermostat was put in, and now its taking longer to get heat... Its also possible the thermostat is faulty... Either way, I would try a new thermostat again... The check engine light wont come on from a thermostat so change the CTS...

No Heat 2001 Wrangler


you have a faulty thermostat in your jeep. the thermostat is on the engine where the top cooling hose attaches to the motor. it will look like a small valve type thing with a spring that holds the brass part against the steel. if you are replacing this yourself than you will want a 195 thermostat.

Engine rapidly overheats,coolantvery near boils


Most likely the thermostat. The heater bypasses the thermostat. If the thermostat is blocked the only cooling is via the heater matrix. To check start the engine with the heater off and put your hand on the thermostat housing when the thermostat opens you should feel the housing get hot. If it doesn't the thermostat is faulty.
