Some of these car you have to bleed the air out of the cooling system, if so it will have a bleeder valve, also check and make sure your radiator cooling fan is coming on, should come on when your temp. gauge get's to the middle, if it don't come on check voltage at fan motor, if you have voltage replace fan assembly. also turn a/c on fan should come on.

Could be your coolant is not truely full. Did you have engine running and allow thermostat to open when filling? Not only does the radiator need to be full, but the engine block should be full as well as radiator. That's why you should feel when car is running. Do make sure it is a 50/50 water/antifreeze mix.
A plugged exhaust can cause too much heat, as well as oil being to thick. Are you using a fresh 5w30 in this car?

I changed thermostat on 2005 buick rendevous ultra 3.6l. still have no heat. whats next?


Was lack of heat in the cabin the only reason you changed the thermostat? Were the radiator hoses hot (or very warm) to the touch before you changed the thermostat? Were the heater hoses hot before you changed the thermostat? Did you get a check engine light and code stating that the engine was not getting (or slow getting) to operating temperature?
Getting heat from your heater depends on a blend door actuator letting air flow through the heater core in the HVAC unit. If your radiator hoses are hot, your heater hoses are hot, and you have no trouble code indicating the engine is not getting to operating temperature, but you are not getting heat inside the car, you need to check your blend door actuator or the control unit for the heater.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 2001 air con working but no hot air is it just thermostat need change or is it more problem?


Check hoses going to heater core. Do both get hot? If so, problem may be a "blend" door failing to actuate due to vacuum leaks or bad actuator. If neither get hot, change thermostat.

Car makes a rattling noise like a wate rpump going bad when I slow down. But when I come to a stop and dinengage the clutch, the noise stops.


The heater bypass valve is located BEFORE the thermostat, so if your heater gets hot, your thermostat could be stuck closed. If there's any suspicion that the car is too hot, always change the thermostat (since it's a hassle to take it out, you might as well change it), and also check to see if you have enough antifreeze. The 4 banger Integra motor always runs hot, the temp gauge showing the needle almost half way. This is normal. Your noise sounds like the clutch needs adjustment, or changing. Another check you could do is test the fan relay (at the radiator). If it's faulty, that would explain why your car runs hotter than usual. #24 and #25 in the diagram.

Heating problem


If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful. Thanks,
