SOURCE: How to Replace Thermostat

Drain the cooling system down a little bit. Remove the upper radiator hose and heater hose from the thermostat housing. Remove the two bolts holding the housing to the head. Remove the thermostat and clean off the old gasket. Install the new thermostat and gasket and reassemble. Top off the cooling system. Run the engine and check for leaks.

OK you have done the engine side of things. If you have an electric radiator cooling fan make sure it comes on when radiator is hot, if not the fan motor is caned or the thermostat switch is faulty. Sometimes the fan motor is supplied by a fused/relayed circuit in which case these items will also need to be checked. Check that not only does the top hose from the engine to radiator get hot but that the bottom one does too. If not this would indicate a blockage perhaps in the radiator core due to sludge. If full of sludge give both ends a flush out with a high pressure hose. Like wise do the same with the bottom hose back to the pump. If the water is circulating and the radiator fan is working then the normal cooling system is working as it should. f the engine is running hot one last thing is to find the EGR valve and check that it is opening as it should. If not the combustion temperatures go very high. One indicator of a hot engine is blue/glazed spark plugs so take one out and check it for signs of hot running. If hot then look to clean the EGR valve and associated exhaust gas feeder pipe with frayed cable, cloth and and carb cleaner spray.

1999dodge ram has cool heat at idle gets hotter when you drive or rev engine


Sounds like a bad thermostat, REPLACE IT! And make sure coolant is at proper level. A thermostat should be closed when cold, and wide open at hot engine. if it fails, it will not stay closed at cold engine, or its stuck. When stuck water flows through by pass at thermostat. and does not heatup because thermostat does not hold coolant back until it gets hot. God-Bless!

How do u know if the thermostat is working?


The best way to check a thermostat is to put it into a container of hot water with a thermometer and watch to see if it opens. The opening temperature is usually stamped on the thermostat somewhere. If you'd rather not remove the thermostat from the vehicle, you can run the engine for 5 minutes and see if the electric cooling fan cycles. Most V6 motors will reach operating temperature by then in springtime weather. Can't really do that if the fan is mechanical (attached to the motor). If Your temperature needle on the dashboard hasn't moved at all by 5 minutes, you either have a bad temperature sensor or the thermostat is stuck open. To rule out the temperature sensor, feel the upper radiator hose. If the hose is hot, your sensor is bad or has a bad connection. If the hose is cold, your thermostat is probably stuck open. If the thermostat is stuck closed, you'll usually have overheating and boil-overs from the coolant tank. Hope this helps.

Where in the motor is the thermostat for nisan 350z 2003


On the VQ35DE enginge, follow the lower radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. That is where you will find the thermostat housing.

My truck starts running hot then I turn the heater on and it blows cold air but every once in a while the heater will throw out hot air. Then the temp gauge will go down. I've check med the radiator cap...


I'd still check the thermostat. Or basically just replace it. Have you ever drained all the antifreeze and flushed the system? Good time to do both. If the hose's get real hot that doesn't really mean the thermostat open. Wouldn't they get hot even if the thermostat didnt open.? If the thermostat was stuck open you'd would have cold air and low temp gauge. Then maybe hit a pump or something and have the thermostat stick closed and have high temp. Maybe water pump. Check it when you have the belt off. Spin, pull & push the water pump pulley around. I'd replaced my water pump at about 110,000 on a '97 dodge Dakota. My 97 never had a very good heater. Always heated up more after driving. Idle never got it warmed up.

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 van has poor heat and changed antifreeze and temp hand stopprd working does that effect heat the temp sending unit


the sending unit will not affect heat but if its broken it will effect the fuel control by giving computer false info, i dont think theres a problem with the temp unit, i think the thermostant is bad and is stuck open or you are very low on coolant, if the thermostat was stuck open then you would get some heat not very hot and would take a long time to get heat. i would start by replacing the thermostat, it is very important to bleed air from system after coolant change or thermostat replacing, after filling run engine until fan turns on , let cool some to release preasure then remove cap start engine and top off, drive for 15min then park let cool and recheck coolant, hope this helps,

How can you tell if you have a bad theromast


First you need to see if the engine is overheating or if the engine is running cool. The job of the thermostat is to maintain a set operating temp, usually 190-200 deg f. If it overheats everytime it is ran then your thermostat may be stuck closed. If you start it up and it heats up to like 220 deg and then goes back down to 190 that tells you that the thermostat is sticking closed and poping open when its really hot. If you cant get to 190 deg f that means that the thermostat is stuck open.

How can a new thermostat be stuck open and if my heater core is leaking, would that really cause no pressure in the radiator hose.

2005 dodge caravan need to know symptoms for faulty thermostat


There are two primary symptoms of a faulty thermostat (assuming you mean the coolant thermostat in the engine not the A/C Heater Thermostat).  The thermostat can fail in basically two ways:
1)  Stuck open - Engine runs colder, heater takes forever to heat up. 2)  Stuck closed - Engine runs very hot, then will suddenly drop in temperature, then run very hot again.  Or engine overheats constantly.  When the engine is hot, feel the upper radiator hose.  If it is not hot, you can bet the thermostat is stuck closed.  If it is hot, the thermostat may not be stuck close, but not opening at the proper temperature.
Stuck open is annoying, but not dangerous.  Stuck close is dangerous and can cause overheating-related damage to your engine.
If you are handy, you can replace it yourself.  Otherwise it is an easy job for a mechanic.
