Did you put the thermostat in the right way with the body of the unit facing into the water in the head or block If is up the hose it is in back to front and will restrict the flow of water. Check that you do not have an air lock in the system by bleeding out the air at the highest hose on the engine . Remove the temperature sender unit (not the temperature sensor ---different unit) and let the air out

SOURCE: my 99 dodge neon keeps overheating when i turn on my AC ,i changed the radiator,AC condenser,thermostat.and i checked for oil in the water or water in the oil i also checked my fans but they are worki

What about a new thermostat? Ten bucks at the parts store and a few minutes of work. Here's a good link for a do-it-yourself installation: http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?ForwardPage=/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/19/8b/25/0900823d80198b25.jsp

SOURCE: Radiator

the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

Did you have your heater running when you refilled coolant after water pump changed?

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.

Drain fluid into a container.

If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.

Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

Heat blows out air but does not get warm, any ideas?


If it is faulty, yes.
Does the temp gauge show the engine is warming up to normal temp ?
Is the radiator full of coolant ?
Are the heater hoses getting hot ?
It could also be a faulty blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.

2000 durango won't blow hot heat, temp is 210 degrees, replaced thermistat


what motor? i have a dodge ram 4x4 with a 5.9 and the thermostat is rated at 195. if you havent noticed any coolant loss, its not your heater core. try bleeding the system (starting the car with the radiator cap off, and then filling with antifreeze after the thermostat opens up) because sometimes air caught in your system will do that.

The heater does not work. The fan blows just fine, but no heat. It was working on and off, but now it does not heat up at all.


your fluid in the radiator is too low. pull the radiator cap off and top up the radiator with coolant.

Where is the thermostat cant find a repair manual for 97 Sportage ..need to know where the thermostat is located


just follow the top radiator hose toward the engine. that metal housing that the radiator hose hooks up to has the thermistat under it take off the two bolts and change out thermistat.refill with coolant then run for about a half hour to warm up enough to open thermistat, then top off with coolant at the radiator cap.leave cap loose during this operation so that no pressure will build up in radiator.if unsure squeeze upper rad. hose it should easilly compress if stiff pressure has built up so dont open the cap. let cool then top up coolant

remove the radiator cap and let the car run for 30 minutes to let the air out of the heater coil, these radiator caps on the 2008 Impala will not bleed off, while running notice if air bubbles air slowly rising to the top of the radiator cap, re-install cap and see if this fixes problem, we also purchased a new radiator cap, this fixed my wifes car.
