This happened to me on the 2005 nissan sentra...i had the thermostat and water pump replaced, the mechanic continually tried to remove any possible air pockets as the problem turns out there was a problem with the head gasket, it was repaired and thankfully did not need replacing otherwise the cost would have been more significant, the mechanic also replaced 2 of my spark plugs, he told me it's not an easy problem to diagnose...good luck

Here are a few things to try. Check to see if the electric raditor fan is coming on after the engine gets hot. If not, this could cause your overheating problem but it wouldn't explain the problem with no heat coming out of your vents. I'd also check your antifreeze level. If it's too low it would cause you car to overheat and you wouldn't get heat out your vents. I'd also check to make sure the thermostat was installed in the correct direction. If it was installed incorrectly it could be the cause of both of your problems. If you bought this car used I'd check to see if someone bypassed the heater core with a hose. Sometimes this is done as a temporary fix for a leaking heater core. This would explain no heat coming out the vents but it wouldn't explain the overheating problem. Maybe the 2 problems have separate causes. I hope at least one of these suggestions helps you out.

I put a new thermostat in my 1994 ford escort,and still dont have warm heat while my heater is on. How do I test to see if I have a bad waterpump?

If it where your water pump isthe vehicle would overheat. After you replaced the thermostat do you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap removed until the radiator fan came one? This will help push the air out of the system. There are two other possibilities. 1. The heater core is plugged. Back flushing the heater core may help remove the built up debris and get you heat again. 2. The blend door may not be fully transitioning from cold to hot. You should be ale to hear a district change in how the air sounds when switching from full hot to full cold. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Overheat 2001 hyundai tiburon

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

2005 Nissan Sentra, AC blowing hot & engine overheating

most likely a thermostat because the pressure on the a\c will be high if engine is over heating or the fans are not kicking on (check fan relay)
