Put a new one in , they dont cost as much as a new engine. make sure your radiator is not stopped up by looking in where the cap goes and make sure the tubes are not plugged up, thats what was wrong with mine.

Thermostat is stuck open on a 2005 chevy impala. What can I do to fix this without having to buy another thermostat? If that's even possible

Thermostats can't be repaired, they must be replaced. You should be able to get a new thermostat and gasket for under $20.

Thermostat reset

Sounds like the thermostat is broken or stuck open. If the thermostat is good it is possible the the engine coolant temp sensor is bad.

How can you tell if the thermostat is stuck and is it possible for the engine to be rebuilt without getting a single smudge in the dust piled on the engine?

The easiest way to tell if the thermostat is stuck is after you warm up the engine,turn the engine off and feel if there is a difference in temp. in the top and bottom of the radiator hoses. If one is hot and the other is cool, you have a stuck thermostat.

Heat not hot

Make sure your blend door in your air distribution box behind the dash is moving freely. If it is then check your coolant level and make sure that coolant is flowing through your heater core. Is it possible that your thermostat is stuck open or possibly not even present on your engine. A stuck or missing thermostat can keep an engine from reaching operating temp.

Over heating, need possibly a new thermostat. it's stuck in the open position.

its either the thermostat or the head gasket, doing a compresson check will eliminate the head gasket. the thermostat is a cheap part and is easy to replace and if its overheating its stuck closed never allowing coolant to circulate through the radiator.

Thermostat, what is the best kind to get? mine doesn't work well, its cold and doesn't get above the "C"

Your thermostat is possibly stuck open, so start out by removing it and replacing it with a new , stock thermostat. You can inspect your old one,and see if it is indeed stuck open too. It should be sealed when cold.

possibly the heater valve isn't opening allthe way,or the thermostat is stuck open not letting engine coolant get hot, check to make sure both heater hoses on firewall are hot, then if you have a small wooden mallet(not steel or metal) tap the thermostat housing and see if this dislodges thermostat from being stuck, don't hit it real hard, the housing is only aluminum
