The thermostat not only allows the normal heat cycle but it also allows the coolant to be able to cool itself before getting returned to the engine block.. If you remove the thermostat then you are not giving the coolant enough time to cool itself before going back into the motor. This will actually make the vehicle run hotter then cooler. I would recommend looking into the lowest temp thermostat available for your vehicle and look for an additive to help cool better..

SOURCE: location of oil filter on a 2008 hyundai elantra

It is located under the alternator. If you are looking down at the engine, it is to the far left. If you are under the car it is to the far right before the oil pan.

SOURCE: How many quarts of oil will the 2008 Hyundai Elantra hold?

Does the book say 6 quarts? I would put in 5, then run it, then let it settle for a couple minutes, then check it again. The book should be right. That would probably include changing the filter also.

I HAVE A 2008 HYUNDAI ELANTRA. I HAD THIS PROBLEM WHEN I WANTED TO REPLACE MY FACTORY RADIO. I ENDED UP TAKING APART MOST OF MY DASH TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. AFTER ALL SAID AND DONE. I FOUND OUT THAT THE PIECE THAT GOES AROUND THE RADIO JUST SNAPS INTO PLACE. I USED A COUPLE OF FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVERS TO PRY IT OFF. THAT IS IT. IT IS THAT EASY. THE WHOLE CAR JUST SNAPS TOGETHER. THE CAR IS CHEAPLY PUT TOGETHER.

2008 hyundai elantra: I can not adjust the temprature setting from cold to Hot. Knob moves freely but it stays cold. does not appear to be a thermostat problem


Are you able to remove the knob safely? It sounds like the knob might be stripped but still hanging on. If you are able to get the knob off then you should be able to manually adjust the control using pliers or something to see if the knob itself is the problem or not.

What causes hyundai Elantra 2002 tempature gauge fluctuates between normal and hot


The thermostat "seals" the cool coolant giving up (rejecting) heat in the radiator & heater core from the hot coolant absorbing heat in the running engine "block".

When the coolant in the engine reaches a specific temperature (180 ~ 195 degrees) as determined by the value selected by manufacturer or when replaced, it opens and allows the hot coolant in the engine block to be pumped out to the radiatot & heater core for cooling and the cool coolant in the radiator / heater core is pumped into the engine block - replacing the hot coolant. The thermostat senses cool coolant in the engine block and seals shut until the temperature of the coolant in the engine block rises to 180 ~ 195 degrees again. This process continues over and over for as long as needed.

You should check to make sure that the coolant level in the reservoir / radiator is sufficient by checking when cold. Do NOT remove a radiator cap when it is hot! With the cap off, start the engine and add additional coolant as the engine warms up to normal operating temperature. If coolant levels are ok, the trouble could be related to the thermostat or possibly a faulty temperature sending switch. This means that the temperature of the coolant is fine - but the switch or sensor that converts the temperature to a voltage for the gauge on yur dashboard is the problem.

If the temperature is fluctuating up and down, you should have it fixed. Good luck!
