Car starting to run hot at times, notice that the temp gage will go up to hot when the air or heat is on. Thinking that it could be the thermostat. Where is the thermostat located in order to replace it.

I recently replaced my thermostat on my 2001 maxima and the heater still blows cold air and the temp gage rises as if the car is overheating. Is it ok to drive the car till I can fix the problem?


when the gauges are telling you that a problem exists like over heating. Cold air may mean an air lock in the cooling system. So I consider it to be foolish to risk a motor without checking the temp gauge for correct operation for starters . After running for 10 minutes feel the top radiator hose and if it is not hot to the touch but the gauge shows hot then you have a cooling system problem that would be checked by a radiator shop.. It may just need pressure bleeding to get the air out of the system

I have a 2002 Chevy tracker. It's been running hot on the temp gage. So, I have changed the thermostat and replaced the radiator hose because of corrosion but it still overheats and when I turn on


If there is cold air coming out the heater than there is air in the system. After you replaced the thermostat did you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap off until the engine came up to operating temp? Doing this will purge the air from the system.

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when


are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

Car runs cold. had new thermostat replaced and system flush. still runs cold gage is just above c


Are you getting hot air when you turn the heat on (after car has been running for at least 30 minutes)? If you do get hot air, I would say your car is probably running at the normal operating temp. and you have a bad gauge or temperature sender.

I have a 1993 Acura Ledgend. For some reason my heater does not continue to blow hot air, it does for a few minutes and then begain to blow cold air. It does this often now. It works and then it blows cold...


first check to see that you coolant level is full, check it after the engine has cooled down,so there is no pressure in the system. otherwise you possibly have a head gasket in the early stage of failure

97 GMC Safari Van - Heater takes forever to blow hot air. Could this be a thermostat problem?


Hello,

Humm I make the assumption that you don't have overheating problems. Yes, sounds like a thermostat is stuck open. If you have a gage on the dash you may also notice that the engine temp takes a long time also. Sometimes when you sit a light for a while the temp edges up and starts to get warm....then when moving down the road a higher speeds the temp cools off again. this does this because the thermostat may be stuck open and it cools the heated water in the engine when moving. Also, check the coolant level in the radiator. (only do this when cold!!!!!!!!) ok????? NOT HOT! low coolant can affect how the heater performs. (low volume)

Hope this helped. :)

No Heat in 99 Taurus


Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.
