Car overheats and heater doesn't hot

Most probable : low coolant and/ or thermostat stuck in the closed position.

Add coolant ONLY in a cool engine.

Thermostat replacement requires tools and knowledge to remove and replace.

Location of thermostat for 2007g6

The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing which is in the radiator return line...

You will loose all the coolant when you remove the thermostat. We use a vacuum coolant fill device to remove the air from the cooling system and **** new coolant back in. I don't expect you have this so you will have to improvise. Fill coolant into block through upper radiator hose at radiator.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

How do I change the thermostat on a 1995 Ford Econoline van? Do I need to remove any brackets, belts, etc. to get to the thermostat? What tools do I need to remove the thermostat housing? I have limited...

I hope were talking about a Ford V8,
Just follow the top radistor hose back to the engine block.
There should be 2 "7/16" bolts and a housing.
You shouldn't have to remove the hose in most cases.
loosen the two bolts,MAKE SURE ENGINE IS COOL.
At the bottom of the housing is the thermostat it should be resting on the engine block.
remove and replace it with the new one in the same direction with the spring down in the engine block.
Male sure you remove all the old gasket and put in a new gasket.
If you need a gasket sealer "used with most fiber type gaskets" use the gasket sealer.
If it happens to be a rubber "O" ring type gasket, no sealer is required.
Good luck,Gary.
PS. please rate my answer.

Need to replace water pump on 1999 pont sunfire 2.4 liter engine are there any special tools required

No, just basic mechanics hand tools. This vehicle is 11 years old. I recommend you perform a complete cooling system service at the same time you replace the water pump. Drain, flush, replace the thermostat, replace the water pump, pour in a 50/50 mix of the correct antifreeze and distilled water. (Do not use tap water). Bleed all air from the system. Also inspect the radiator hoses and heater hoses. Replace as necessary.

What way does the thermostat go into a 1999 for ranger 3.0

. If you are needing to replace your thermostat, I highly recommend doing it yourself. It is easy to do, and very cheap.
Now to start. It should take about an hour to complete this, but giving yourself plenty of time is the first step. The tools I used are very common, and can be found just about anywhere. i have the diagram below all of this post

Before you start, drain all of your coolant out of the car. This will make your life a lot easier down the road.

Tools used:
3/8" Drive ratchet
3/8" 2" drive extender
3/8" to 1/4" drive reducer
1/4" drive ratchet
10mm socket
8mm socket
Flathead screwdriver (not pictured)

Parts needed: Thermostat
New coolant

look at the picture and you will see the proper way it needs to be installed ok?
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards michael

Is replacing the thermostat on a 2001 too much for a shade tree mechanic? If not where can I get instructions?

It is not a complicated procedure and all the work is within reach and no special tools are needed (can be done with just a pair of regular pliers, but please safely use the proper tools).. The steps are below; however, you may want to go to your local public library (you don't need a library card) and go to the "Reference Section". There you can find "Chilton's and Motor's reference books on your vehicle. Find the pages related to changing the thermostat and photocopy them using the public copy machines (15 ~ 25 cents per page).

Here are the steps:
1. Locate the thermostat housing at the end of the top radiatoir hose where it connects to the engine manifold. It is held onto the hose with a clamp.
2. Drain the radiator coolant to a level below the height of the thermostat housing. The drain plug is a thumb-screw on the lower right of the radiator as you face the radiator (maybe lower left). Reach behind the radiator from the bottom of the car. When done, then:
3. Remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing to the manifold.
4. Remove the old thermostat from the engine (may be stuck - pry it off) and scrape the old gasket and sealant from the housing and the manifold.
5. Install new thermostat (pointy side towards radiator) and use sealant on both sides of the gasket.
6. I recommend Permatex #2 non-hardening gasket sealant (small tube $3).
7. Tighten the housing down and replenish radiator....

Aerostar engine runs hot

I believe your thermostat is stuck in the closed position. It's not allowing coolant to circulate and cool off in the radiator. The water coming out of the tube is from the radiator overflow tube. The super-hot coolant is expanding and has no where to go since the thermostat is stuck. Replace the thermostat and use a new gasket set. Its an easy job if your handy with tools.
