    the spring should face the engine. when the engine is off does the pressure go down in the hose immediately?

Usually the t/stat has one end with a point on it. This goes up. If that doesn't work, try no t/stat. That's one way to rule out the t/stat

Air lock cooling system


Not sure I follow your wording on the different temps. If the system is full of coolant and working correctly, the thermostat should open at 195 degrees which would be several miles down the road. Once the thermostat opens both radiator hoses should be warm. If the water pump is not working the engine will get hot very quickly.
Have you tried running without the thermostat to see what happens ?

'02 venture temp gauge goes to red but the lower hose temp is 115 and upper hose is 200, would this be a temp gauge sending unit gone bad?


SINE YOU HAVE DIFFERENT TEMPERATURE ON THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE FROM THE BOTTOM HOSE,MEANS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE A GOOD COOLANT CIRCULATION AND THIS MIGHT CAUSED EITHER FROM FAULTY THERMOSTAT,AIR IN THE COOLING SYSTEM,OR BLOGGED RADIATOR.

I have a 97 passport and my engine coolant keeps leaking out of a small hole right above the flywheel on the back of the engine block. Is this hole supposed to be there and if so where would the leak...


I Have a 94 Rodeo,3.2l v6 I had the same problem...Yes it is a drain hole..You might have a coolant pipe running under your lower intake if so it's the "O" ring on that pipe..It runs from the upper radiator hose to rear of block...50 cent part. If you are doing it yourself check the other heater hose metal pipe O ring also. towards the front under the thermostat housing. I just fixed mine.I had antifreeze coming out the inspection plates on the trans took off the upper plenium and lower intake and the rubber O ring was shot.Clean out flange use a wire V shaped wheel. make sure the Ring fits Snug on the coolant pipe,dry fit in the flange.( Got assorted sizes at NAPA) put a good coat of Black RTV silicon on O ring,And some in the hole itself press pipe in hole and install the bolts.Allow to set for 3hrs. Again this is on a 94 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 L V6 5spd. Hope that helps you

Temp sensor


It should be on or very near to the thermostat housing which should be at the end of the upper radiator hose that is closest to the engine. If not there, follow the coolant hoses/tubes because it measures coolant temperature after the thermostat.

Where is the thermostat on a 1993 audi 100 cs 2.8 v6


The thermostat is located in the engine block just to the side of the water pump underneath the housing where the upper radiator hose is attached.
  1. Remove the lower engine shield.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the vehicle to collect the coolant.
  3. Remove the radiator cap and drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  4. Place a large drain pan under the engine block drain located at the bottom of the engine near the vicinity of the flywheel and the oil pan.
  5. Drain the engine block coolant into a suitable container.
  6. Place the (hood) lock carrier in the 'service position'. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Body And Trim, Service Position, Front Bumper, Hood Lock Carrier.
  7. Remove the accessory drive belt. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): General Information And Maintenance, Routing Maintenance And Tune-Up.
  8. If installed, remove the upper front engine cover.
  9. Remove the toothed camshaft drive belt from the right side cylinder head to allow enough access to remove the thermostat housing. Cover and protect the drive belt from residual coolant.
  10. Remove the mounting fasteners; remove the housing, then the thermostat.
