Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. Where it connects to the engine is where you'll find the thermostat. It's under a housing...should be two or three bolts holding the housing down. Don't forget to replace the gasket.

Kia spectra 2000, what causes over heating?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Few things why the car overheats, here are the following:

- Weak radiator blower motor
- Clogged radiator
- Cracked head or head gasket
- Faulty water pump (coolant will not circulate if it's faulty)
- Worn out radiator hoses
- Coolant reservoir overfill (coolant overflows)

You will need to have them replaced to resolve the problem. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1999 Olds Alero 4 cyl running hotter than normal. One mechanic says it's Heat sensor that opens and closes. The other mechanic who ran car says it was thermostat that turns on dual fans. Ok well one was...


REPLACE THERMOSTAT.ITS STICKING CLOSE TO KEEP COOLANT FROM CIRCULATING THROUGH ENGINE AND RADIATOR. THE FANS SHOULD COME ON WHEN VECHICLE SETTING AT A LONG IDLE.THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR GET TO CERTAIN TEMPERATURE WHICH WILL COMPLETE CIRCUIT PCM SEND POWER TO COOLANT SENSOR THEN TO COOLANT FANS RELAYS AND FANS.IF VECHICLE OVER HEATING WHILE MOVING THERMOSTAT FAULTY.IF YOU TURN AC AND COOLANT FANS DONT RUN CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAY.IF COOLING FANS DONT TURN ON WITH AIR CONDITIONER ON EITHER COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY OR PCM FAULTY.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.IF ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE.YOU HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET.

The engine is overheating even though there's still coolant in it and there doesn't appear to be any leaks. There is some rust in the radiator and have flushed a lot of it out. Could it be the thermostat...


hi have you checked to see if the cooler fan is running when it gets to normal running temperature? if not running, first check fuses, then check wires connected to the fan switch ( located on bottom or on side of radiator ) spin fan to make sure it has not seized it should move freely, to check if it is thermostat, after running engine for a few minuets feel the top and bottom hoses to the radiator, if one is cold and the other is hot ( normally bottom is hot, top is cooler ) then the thermostat will need replacing, and finally ( last check ) remove the oil filler cap and see if there is a creamy residue on it, also check engine oil as well to see if it is similar in colour to the cap if it is your head gasket has blown and will need sorting ( very rare )....hope this helps please vote thanks

What do the codes PO455 and PO128 mean on my kia sephia? I was told my fuel canister is only purchased at dealer ...is that true>


P0455= Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (large leak)
P0128=Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

Nothing here says buy a new can!
it could be as simple as turning the gas cap three clicks past tight,that is a very common thing,The other thing shows you should change your thermostat

My heater does not work in my car, how do i know if it is the thermostat or the heating core


If it is the thermostat the engine will overheat fast because the hot water can't be exchanged for cooler water. If its the heater core that means that the heater core is leaking, you will loose coolant and then the engine will overheat. Some times in cold weather just being low on coolant can make the heater not work. Check the radiator coolant level while the engine is cool. Start the engine and let it warm up to normal operating temp. make sure the radiator is full, check your heater to see if heat is coming out. If not then you should look into other heater control function. Hope this helped you. Remember survey's are what keep us here for you.

2004 dodge ram is over heating, the thermostat and fan clutch have been replaced.Doesn't(over heat) in cool weather,but will in mod. weather if driven over 70mph or hilly terrain due or increase of rpm,and...


Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine
