If thermostat is stuck open will it make your engine cooling fan run constantly?


im assuming your speaking of the engines internal thermostat ? if this sticks open (not likely) then temp gauge on car will never reach operation temp and stay low on scale ( entire purpose of thermostat in first place) now if your coolant fan switch sticks closed (very likely) then your fan will run constantly and only shut off with the key


also another condition that makes them run more often is that engine temp gauge is over normal (showing) and this is an indicator that cooling system has a problem and needs service

How do you know when your thermostat goes bad on a 96 gmc suburban


Generally it sticks open and the engine does not warm up, or it sticks closed and the engine overheats. It can also stick in between.

COULD BE THERMOSTAT IF TOP RADIATOR HOSE IS NOT HOT AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE GOING TO WATER PUMP IS HOT THE THERMOSTAT STICKING PARTIALLY CLOSE.IF TOP HOSE IS HOT THE RADIATOR,ENGINE BLOCK HEATER CORE NEED FLUSHING OUT.IF WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAKING REPLACE WATER PUMP, FAULTY WATER PUMP WILL CAUSE ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.REPLACE RADIATOR CAP MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 50 / 50 MIX SOLUTION ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL ON DIP STICK, IF OIL IN DIP STICK LOOK LIKE MILKSHAKE YOU HAVE BLOWED HEAD GASKET THAT WILL CAUSE ENGINE OVERHEATING WHILE DRIVING CAR IN SHORT DISTANCE AND ENGINE OVERHEATING.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 dodge durango


Follow your upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of your engine, there where it clamps on is the thermostat housing, remove hose and two or three small bolt's that hold thermostat housing under that is where the thermostat is at. Remmeber that the spring side of the thermostat is what goes into the engine side, facing down.

The thermostat sticks third one i put in works


Try flushing your cooling system and buy a OEM GM thermostat. Sometimes if you buy the ones from the auto part stores they are not a good quality.

Good Luck,

92 isuzu rodeo overheating still


hey
u says that u didn't replace the thermostat yet
Your thermostat is sticking. DO NOT DRIVE if the car overheats, you can do some serious engine damage, if you haven't done so already. Get the thermostat changed out immediately.

What happened is your thermostat is sticking. It was stuck and you saw it overheat (and should have stopped immediately). The added pressure from having a stuck thermostat pushes the fluild into the overflow.

The temperature may have gone back to normal if the thermostat "finally" opened. However, since the thermostat is sticking, it is unreliable and I would get it replaced.

Driving when the engine overheats can easily cause gaskets, such as the head gasket to fail and heads to warp. If this has occurred, you're looking at a new engine.
