2004 Audi a4 1.8T quattro has overheating engine problems but no heat is working when we turn on the heater


goodyear are tyre mechanics
water in the oil is from a hole in the housing (aluminium timing chain cover ) behind the water pump impeller or problem head
before anything was replaced , a compression test should have been done to determine the condition of the head and head gasket
next a coolant pressure test should have been done to determine if there was a leak in the cooling system ( the housing crack would have been obvious at the test
water pumps always work if there is water for them to work in and only need replacing if there is a water leak from a hole in the housing ( seal failure ) or there is a failed bearing noise
I could suggest that you find an accredited professional service center that has experience on your make of car and get a proper diagnosis before you waste any more time and money on tire mechanics

Have an 2003 Olds Alero 2.2L, overheating. Removed thermostat housing/feed pipe to check thermostat to find no thermostat present, however the heat has working, although it has took 5 or 6 minutes to warm...


I can't give you any specifics on how to change your water pump, but I can answer your questions about the thermostat. Yes, the heat will work withou a thermostat. And yes, a car will overheat without one, especially in the summer months. The purpose of a thermostat is to allow cooler water to flow into your block, but also to allow the water adequate time to be cooled in the radiator. Without the thermostat, water is continuously cycling through your coolant system, getting hotter and hotter. Often I see people with malfunctioning thermostats jsut remove them, sometimes on the side of the road, just to get where they're going.

How to replace thermostat on ford f350 turbo diesel


The F-350 designation refers to a 1-ton Ford F-Series pickup truck. The thermostat in your diesel-powered Ford closes off the flow of coolant when the engine is cold, forcing the engine to heat up faster. When the coolant has reached a certain temperature, the thermostat opens up and the coolant flows as normal. A malfunctioning thermostat in your diesel may cause your engine to overheat if the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position. Installation of a new thermostat will cure the problem and get you back on the road

  • Open the hood. Allow the motor to cool off so that you will not be scalded by hot coolant. Locate the thermostat housing by tracing the upper radiator hose from the driver's side of the radiator to its termination at the thermostat housing.
  • 2 Remove the cap from the white plastic coolant bottle at the front of the engine bay. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain petcock on the lower side of the radiator on the driver's side of the truck. Remove the petcock by rotating it counterclockwise with a 19mm wrench. Replace the petcock and tighten it in a clockwise direction once the coolant has fully drained.
  • 3 Remove the clamps from both ends of the upper radiator hose with a pair of pliers. Pull the hose from the radiator and from the thermostat housing, using a twisting motion. Set the hose and clamps aside.
  • 4 Spray penetrating fluid on the three mounting bolts on the thermostat housing and let it soak in for a few minutes. Remove the three bolts with an 8mm wrench turned counterclockwise. Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump and set it and the bolts aside.
  • 5 Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump to reveal the thermostat. Carefully pry the thermostat up with a flat-blade



  • screwdriver if necessary. Clean the mating surfaces on the thermostat housing and at the water pump with a rag.
  • 6 Place a new thermostat into the water pump with the pointed end facing upward. Install a new O-ring gasket into the groove on the thermostat housing mating surface of the water pump. Position the thermostat housing back onto the water pump and tighten the three bolts with a torque wrench to 15 foot-lbs.
  • 7 Push the upper radiator hose back onto the radiator inlet and the thermostat housing until it is fully seated at both ends. Replace the hose clamps in their original position with a pair of pliers. Refill the coolant that you drained from the radiator back into the white plastic coolant tank and replace the cap. Start the engine and let it warm up. Check for leaks and retighten your connections if necessary

    Where is the thermostat located on a 3.0 liter engine? Don't know if the water, pump or thermostat is leaking.


    Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine. There is where the t-stat housing is.

    If the thermostat is broken in the closed position the engine would overheat rapidly. If it was broken in the open position the engine cooling system would not reach normal operating temperature and the heater would produce only warm air.

    Take the thermostat out and put it in a pan of water on the stove. When the water gets to around 200 deg F, the thermostat should open. If it doesn't it needs replaced. Observe carefully that you have not installed the thermostat upsidedown. Spring-side to the engine

    90 subaru legacy overheats, wheres the thrmostat


    When a car overheats it's rarely the thermostat. They just don't go bad that often. If it overheats when you idle a lot, it's the fan and with electric fans, it's almost always the fan motor. But to find the thermostat, follow the top radiator hose to the engine and there it is.

    Instructions on how to replace thermostat on 2002 chevy malibu


    Your thermostat is inside your water neck housing. Your water neck housing has a radiator hose that plugs into the front of it and should be on the top part of your engine (just as a reference to help you find it.). Once you have the housing off antifreeze will go everywhere (unless you bleed the system first) and you will be able to see your thermostat inside and will be able to replace. Put back together as you found it and you're done. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Goodluck! (PS Sometimes your new thermostat needs to be broken in in order to work properly. Don't worry if your car overheats a little bit when you first drive. If you take the car on the highway, the increased water pressure will help that thermostat get used to opening and closing.)

    98 328IS OVERHEATING AFTER CHANGING THERMOSTAT


    Are you putting the thermostat in correctly? It it will not work backwards.

    And to confirm that there isn't a different problem, take the thermostat out all together and see if it overheats.

    Engine not fully warming up is not usually caused by the thermostat. Stats usually fail closed, not open.

    You will want to check the water temperature sending unit or gauge after verify the water temperature with an external calibrated thermometer. You can attach and insulate the external thermometer to the housing where thermostat is located.


    Reply back what you figure out. I will be happy to help you further.
