Make sure that you dont install it backwards. Some you can,others you can not,and get the housing bolted back in place. Make sure that you get all the air out of the system,dont add too much coolant untill the thermostat opens,but be sure to put at lreast a 50/50 mix back. Be sure you put enough back in before the thermostat opens,but leave enough room for the air to come out and you wont loose a lot of the coolant,when it opens.Then add the rest or untill the radiator is topped off,then add to the reservoir to the cold mark.

1992 subaru legacy 2.2 liter overheating and no heat. already replaced waterpump,thermastat, radiator and hoses


You mean the car is running fine but just No Heat?
If so
-Sound like the heater hoses are plug. or the control valve is no function

-Check the heater control valve and flush the heater unit with water of garden hose from both directions.
Q: How do I know that is working or not?
A: Slide the heater control from Hot to cold or cold to hot and check it turn or not. (If not turn at all. The cable is broken or slip off)

Car is full of coolant but car overheats


hi there
the car can be completely full of coolant but if the thermastat is not opening then it will cause it to overheat the thermastat is what allows the coolant to enter and cool the vehicle however if it doesnt then it will over heat you can get a new one at any autoparts store or you can take it to your local mechanic to have this repaired have a wonderful day

Have replaced my thermastat in 99 cav. 2 cyl. 3 x's, thermostat's are good they opened in boiling hot water, but when I put them in car they dont open up and car overheats very quickly, I have been driving...


Make sure that the gasket is put in right. If put in wrong, it can keep the thermostat from opening. Also make sure that you put the thermostat in the right. The sensor coil or slug goes toward the engine. The thermostat should be stamped showing the proper direction. I would go ahead and buy a new one just to be sure. They are cheap.

HOW TO CHANGE THERMOSTAT ON THE V-6


First make sure engine is cool.
-Put drain pan under car, coolant will run out.
-Remove the TOP radiator hose that runs to the metal thermastat housing. Coolant will now be running out, try and direct it to the drain pan below.
-Remove the thermastat housing, BEFORE removing the thermastat make sure you TAKE NOTE at how it is situated in the casting.
- Take the thermastat housing and run a wire brush on the flat spot were the old gasket material is.
-Both mating sides of the thermastat housing MUST BE PERFECTLY CLEAN. There can not be any old gasket material left.
-Insatll new thermastat.
-Put a very light amount of PERMATEX orange high temp. silicone on BOTH sides of the new gasket.
-Put a small amount on bolt threads also.
-Now install thermastat housing, and bolts.
-Tighten bolts down a little at a time, alternating between the two, unitl till they are tight.
-Install the radiator hose, and tighten hose clamp.
-Remove radiator cap, pour in coolant, until it sits just below the radiator cap neck. This may take a little time as the system has some air in it.
-Install the radiator cap. Make sure you radiator overflow tank is filled properly.
-Remove the drain pan, make SURE ALL the tools use used are secure, and out of the engine bay.
-Start engine, and place your heater control to 'HEAT"
-Let engine run until the top radiator hose is hot, which means you thermastat has opened.
-Keep watching the engine temp AT ALL TIMES, we wnat to make sure there is no air in the system.
-Inspect for any leaks. Now when the top radiator hose is hot make sure the hose clamp is tight.
Please let me know how it goes.
