check your engine oil for water and water for oil your head gasket may have blown. failing that the water pump has gone and not pumping the water round. with engine running you should feel the water round if you squeeze the pipe near to the thermostat.

Always replace the thermostat when changing water pump. The age of the vehicle warrants replacing upper and lower radiator hoses too.

Hi, If you see white smoke coming from tail pipe then you will know it is leaking through engine.
I would suggest after you replace head gasket, that you put new radiator fluid (50/50) mix and a new thermostat in. The fluid will keep it from boiling over. Good luck.

Remove thermostat and run the vehicle. do your hoses get tight now? If so, your new thermostat was not opening up. test it by putting it into a pot of water and bring up the temp on your stovetop. if the water boils, and the thermostat isnt open, then get a refund and a new thermostat. Be sure to point the spring end of the thermostat into the engine block when replacing. If your thermostat did open, then your water pump may be shot.

Generally if one hose is hot, and the other hose is cold it indicates that they water is not circulating. You could have a defective thermostat. Take the thermostat out and run the engine without it. With the radiator cap off you should see a lot of water moving through. It that is the case, replace the thermostat and you should be ok. If there is no rapid movement of water it may be the impeller on the water pump came loose. This is rare, but it can happen since the impeller is usually pressed on the shaft. You should also check and see if you get a lot of bubbles when the car is running and the cap off. This often indicates a blown head gasket. Hope this helps.

BMW 1995 318i - Car Running Hot


There is a blockage or leak in your cooling system. That may come in a few different forms:
Incorrectly installed thermostat
Water pump not functioning - you may see water dripping from the pump or a stain from the hole under the water pump.
Severely coroded hoses/coolant passages - if the fluid is brown and the inside of the radiator rusty
External leak - you would see fluid on the ground Internal leak - you would see steam/white smoke from the tail pipe or water in the oil (may look like chocolate milk or not), if the oil level is extremely high this would be a good indication
heater core bypassed

Where is the thermostat on a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier?


there probably isn't a radiator cap. some cars only have a cap on the resivior tank. if your coolant is low, it'll show in that tank. follow your upper radiator hose to engine. thermostat should be at the end of it, depending on what engine you have
