It's missing!
first why not tell everyone what engine is there, most suzuki
have like 2 to 5 engines, offered day one.
this wiki line accurate?
A third generation Wagon R was launched in Japan in September 2003 for the Wagon R's tenth Anniversary, but now only as a 660 cc K6A-engined kei car

so is it a K6A?
did you go to suzuki dot come, yet, and click parts
then click your engine, and see the drawing under cooling yet>?
that be first. see what's missing?

i see free manuals on google. use google.
first google hit shows pdf service for K6A
and this. also used in Alto;s we have neither in uSA.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport no heat but the fan works,what could the problem be?

Could be that the thermostat has packed up...

Check all your coolant levels are correct and then take her for a good run out....keep your eyes on the temperature gauge,,if your temp gauge hardly moves then your thermostat is at fault....replace it.

If temp gauge works fine, you may be airlocked in your heater matrix... Try setting heater to full heat with fan on full power,, whilst car is ticking over, remove radiator / expansion bottle cap carefully and start squeezing your coolant pipes. This should force any air out through your rad/bottle top..

Please be aware that as your temperature rises in the engine. Your coolant will expand and start to flow out of the rad/expansion this stage quickly replace the cap....check your heater...leave engine to cool....unscrew rad/bottle cap, check coolant levels, top up if necessary and squeeze pipes again..start car with heater/fan on full and repeat above.....

Hope this helps..

How do I find and troubleshoot the thermostat in my 1994 ford probe GT?

The thermostat is in the coolant pipe above the transmission. The large metal pipe coming up from the lower rad hose attaches to the thermostat/water distribution block, this is located under and to the engine side of the air-filter box.

There are a couple bolts holding the pipe to the block, and the thermostat is located right at this flange. If the vehicle overheats, even if the rad fans come on, it is likely that the thermostat is not opening. If the vehicle never heats up fully, especially on cold days, it is possible it is stuck open.

Once out of the car, a thermostat can be checked by placing it in hot water (for this car usually over 180 deg F/ 82 deg C) and it should open.

I can't find the thermostat location on a 2005 chevy uplander? I need to replace it and have the part but can't find it in the engine bay. Took both coolant hoses off no luck.

the thermostat is under the throttle body
remove the air box and the throttle body
remove the top thermostat bolt
the bottom thermostat bolt remove 95% the hole is slotted
replace thr t-stat and reassemble
if you have anLX9 engine there will be air bleed scews
if you have an LZ9 it will not have air bleed screws
ok if you have bleed screws open both then fill the rad wait till a STEADY STREAM of coolant is coming out then close bleed screws
start the vehicle put your heater on HOT and VENT AND BLOWER ON HIGH
run vehicle till u get HOT NOT WARM AIR coming out of vents this will insure you have no air in the cooling system

now if you have no bleeders
then fill the rad then install the rad cap
start the engine run engine 2,000-2,500 RPM till the temp. gauge reads about normal about half way
then let the vehicle idle for 3 min
then shut the vehicle off and cool down so the rad cap can be removed
top up coolant
also make sure there is good hot air coming out of the heater if not repeat procedure there is still air in the cooling system
hope you found this helpfull

Follow the top rad hose to the engine, where it connects that's the thermostat housing.
