How to diagnose ALL vehicle NO heat problems


It is winter and you jump in your car start it up and turn the heater blower fan on.
You sit and wait...and wait.... NO HEAT !
Here are a few easy steps to help diagnose the problem:

1) After vehicle is completely warmed up, open your vehicles hood.

2) Grab a pair of gloves. Put them on, now put your hand with your glove on, on the TOP radiator hose. ( The top black radiator hose is the largest hose on the top of the radiator inlet running to the thermostat housing, in most vehicles)

3) Be careful NOT to touch ANY part of the engines cooling fan(s). Is the radiator hose HOT or COLD to the touch ?

If the hose is cold the easiest repair is to replace the thermostat. The thermostat helps regulate the engine temperature keeping it approximately 195 degrees Fahrenheit, and helps supply hot coolant to run through your vehicles heater core to keep you warm in the winter.

are you installing the correct thermostat the right in the head or block
3 thermostats indicate incorrect fitment method

Air trapped in cooling system after new thermostat


I don't mean to sound insulting at all but I'm not certain what your experience is with engines.
Is it possible you put the thermostat in upside down?
Do you feel pressure on the top hose when you squeeze it? Does it feel pressurized? If so then the water pump is doing it's job.
Easiest way I have seen to "burp" a system after doing a coolant change or thermostat swap is to get one of the radiator caps that has a vent lever built into the top of it. This way once the engine is hot you can slightly pull that lever up and let it vent out the air a little bit at a time. Another way would be to to leave the radiator cap off. Start the engine and squeeze the bottom hose to burp the air to the top of the system. Hope this helps.

Is there any other reason why on a 97 geo prism that a brand new thermostat won't open other than it is defective? I put Bar's head gasket repair in it and now I have no heat. Old thermostat was stuck in...


Yes I've seen bad thermostats right out of the box. When installing it make sure that the point-points towards the radiator (flow). The best way to test the thermostat is to drop it into a pot of very hot water to see if it opens. I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a comment to help others with a similar situation.

Ok my car keeps over heating and i keep putting water into it only last bout 15 miles then overheats again and the water is disapearing i have a mazda mx6


Never put straight water in this will crack your heads. You should be putting the required antifreeze in you can buy the 50/50 mixed antifreeze for your car but find out if you take the old green or the new orange antifreeze. Also if your car is over heating then it might need a new thermostat or you have a leak in a hose that has rotted or your radiator is plugged up which it shouldn't if your car, has been cared for. The thermostat is around $10 at any auto parts store you can have them help you find the right one. And the thermostat is located in the main radiator hose that connects to the throttle body.

Thermostat


If the hose has collapsed, most likely the thermostat was put in backwards reversing pressure. There is only one place the thermostat goes. Follow the top radiator hose to the top of the engine block. It will have a round clamp holding it onto an aluminum housing, usually held on by two bolts. On a cold engine, first drain the radiator and squeeze the hose till you don't hardly hear any gurgling noise, unbolt the screws holding the housing, you don't have to take the hose off the clamp. You'll need the new thermostat and gasket for it. Not sure of the type, go to your local parts store and give them the specs on your vehicle. Engine size, how many cylinders, if it has a/c or not. Most likely some engines take a 185 degree thermostat or higher. They'll tell you this. Make sure you remove the old gasket remains from the engine block and the housing before installing the new gasket and thermostat. Use a putty knife. Once it's replaced, refill the radiator. Start the vehicle and wait for it to warm up, watch your temp. gauge or light and turn on the heater all the way up to you feel heat. Approximately 10 minutes tops. Watch the hose if it collapses again or not. You should be good aftger that.
