Is is safe to take off thermostat on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited?


Thermostats are used to keep the engine operating in the optimum temperature range. Generally speaking, it is safe to remove the thermostat in summer conditions. Coolant will flow continuously with no restriction. In winter months and below freezing conditions the engine may not reach proper operating temperature. Removing the thermostat may help you find the possible over-heating problem.

1993 buick skylark stalls


Is the check engine light on ?
It sounds like the engine temp sensor is not right, but if that were true you should have a check engine light and a code for the sensor.
Have you checked fuel pressure ?

Heater is cold but abit warm when drivin audi a4 2005


Check & replace the engine thermostat if necessary.

Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!
First time you might check the thermostat operating.
The thermostat location for 2005 Audi A4 1.9 TDI, is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!
Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 044121113, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $25):

Very bad idol and run condition.


sounds like a possible water temp issue... check your thermostat and/or water temp sensor. when you first start your engine the computer uses the water temp reading to do a 'cold start' scenario, more fuel. once you reach normal operating temp the fuel should be cut back. if the thermostat is not opening and closing properly this can cause strange readings from the water temp sensor (which is mounted near the thermostat)... unlikely the sensor is bad, but a possibility... more likely the thermostat.

1995 Buick skylark overheating


there could be several resons for the overheating:


1. water pump doesn't circulate properly

2. Bad thermostst

3. fan clutch/radiator fan are non operative

4. relay is bad

5. clogged system

6. clogged radiator

to check on the the specific problem first power wash the radiator to remove bugs and road grime. they block the air from flowing over the fins and coil of the radiator thus not allowing the heat to disapate from the coolant. next install the good thermostat and make sure the spring part of the thermostat is facing down.next fill the radiator with coolant all the way up to the neck of the radiator and leave the cap off. next turn your heat setting to max fan and max heat temp. start the vehicle let the vehicle heat up and keep watch for the the flow of coolant soon as it goes down you should feel the upper radiator hose get real hot this indicates that the thermostat is working. now if you have a fan clutch for a conventional rear drive vehicle once the temp reaches 180 degrees the fan should no longer free spin it should start spinning faster if it is working like it should. if you have a transverse mounted engine for front wheel drive you will have a fan unit mounted to the radiator. these should be spinning when the engine reaches temp of 180 degrees. If they are not open the junction box and located the fan relay. switch out the relay with another one( I use the a/c clutch relay)if the fans kick on it's the relay that is bad, if it doesn't then either it's the fan unit itself or the temp sensor on the fan unit.now after you have done all these checks and everything is in order check the hoses going to the heater core at the fire wall they should be hot to the touch if they are not you have a clog at the by-pass of the water pump or manifold inlet.if the hoses are hot and you still have no heat then it's a bad valve inside the cab near the heatercore or a defective climate control module. check the fuse first to see that it is good.after the engine has been running a while the level of coolant should have gone down and then refill to proper level and replace cap after all of this if you still don't have heat and it overheats you have a bad water pump.... please rate this thanks
