I would say thermostat or water pump.If you're going to self repair,try the thermostat first.It is cheaper and usually more likely but with a 1992 it could be either one.If it happens fairly quick,thermostat.If you can go 20-30 miles,probably water pump because they don't usually fail 100% or if they do,it still cycles a little bit but cannot keep up with what the engine needs.I am sure you know but I will say it anyway.If the temp.guage even gets near the edge of the red,pull over and shut down.Hopefully you have a secondary car to use.Good luck!

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.

Freightliner columbia wont blow heat into cab have replaced thermostats and heater core blend doors work heater core gets hot and blower works but air from vents only gets to 80 deg

The air from the heater core will be as hot as the coolant temperature of the engine. 80 Degrees is the opening temperature of the thermostat and that will be where it remains until the engine starts to work or the ambient temperature rises.
Thermostats come in a couple of different opening temperatures so check around for one that opens around 85 degrees if you want hotter air in the cab
Another point is to close the recirculating vent door to the cabin as the heater core is trying to heat fresh freezing air if it is open

Spark plug not hot enough

There is often confusion between the heat rating of the plug, and the heat or temperature it reaches. They are opposite. So if the plug itself is getting too hot, it will blister or melt, and maybe damage the piston top. So then you need a plug of a higher rating, which perversely will lower its operating temperature

I recently had this problem with my car. If the heater temperature controller fails, there may be heat whenever the blower runs. To test this, turn on the car when it is not warmed up. Immediately turn on the A/C. If it blows cold, the A/C is good. If as the water temperature gets hot, the air gets hot, the temperature controller is stuck on the HOT position. A good auto store can get you the correct part and show you how to install it.

My car heat gets too high what is the reason for that

Does the the instrument panel indicate the car is getting to hot or overheating? Check the coolant level in your radiator to be sure but if the temperature gauge says the car is running at an appropriate temperature then I would not worry about the heat being to hot in your cabin. Just adjust the thermostat for the heat to a lower temperature that is more comfortable to you.

My 1999 Nav stopped heating and cooling. Coolant/Anti-freeze is at proper temperature. Temperature gauge is fine so it does not appear to be a thermostat problem. The fan blows just fine. The front heat...

Check that the two hoses of the heater core at the firewall are getting hot. If both are not hot, then the heater core is plugged up. Try to flush in this case to free up sediment. If that doesn't work, maybe a new heater core is required, assuming that the blend door is operating correctly, and diverting hot air to the defrost or front vents.

Heat not very hot

Possibly the thermostat is bad or stuck open, not allowing the engine to get hot enough. A plugged heater core can also cause poor heat.

I hear a clicking noise when I make a left turn, the deeper I turn the wheel. I also have a problem with the heat not getting hot. The blower works, but the air coming out isn't getting hot. The blower...

Concerning the poor heat problem, the engine may not be coming up to full operating temperature. If you have a temperature gauge on the instrument cluster, see if its coming up to where it should be, about 3/4 of the way up. If not then check operating temperature some other way. Should be about 190 deg. If not hot enough engine coolant thermostat will need to be replaced.
