Try following the fat hose from the top of the radiator to where it attatches at the top of the engine. this is usually where the thermostat housing is found. good luck. hope this helps.

No heat in Ford Aerostar gage does not move. Heater core was flushed and new thermostat was put in

Just a guess, but I don't think you did this yourself. Take it back to the mechanic and complain.

You didn't say if this was the result of the flush and thermostat change or if you had the problem previously. I tend to think this is a thermostat problem still. It is possible the mechanic simply forgot to install the new thermostat (remote, but possible).

If you have no heat and the temperature guage is pegged cold, the engine is not reaching operating temperature. It is the thermostat's job to regulate this. Does the radiator get warm?

I would take it back to the mechanic if you trust him, or try another if you don't.

Throttle position sensor

A TPS can be easily changed in most cases. I don't know what kind of car you have though!! Some are adjustable and need to be set properly. This can also be done with a little basic electrical knowledge and a good multimeter. The TPS is located opposite the throttle cable on the throttle body and has a three wire is directly attached to the throttle plate rod and is usually held on by two or three small screws. If the screw holes are not slotted then it is non-adjustable and can simply be changed. It may be necessary to clear the code when the repair is done.

2007 Dodge Nitro wont star


This sounds to be an electrical system problem, which is best diagnosed by a Dodge dealer. They have exact schematics of the cars wiring. It is not something I can diagnose easily, through the web, without running physical tests on the car. And I say bring it to the dealer, because in my experience, non-certified Dodge mechanics will guess at best, and replace parts until they figure it out; at your expense.

I hope this helps!

2005 buick rendezvous thermostat

here is a pic of the thermostat housing in case you dont know what it looks like. its a very easy part to change although sometimes they are hard to get to. just make sure you do not put the thermostat in backwards the coil on the thermostat should go towards the hot side (coolant coming from the engine)

Overheating 2005 PT Cruiser

This sounds like a faulty thermostat. The fact that running the heater helps with the overheating is a common symptom of a faulty thermostat. Just follow the top radiator hose to where it hooks on the engine. The thermostat is located inside the housing that the hose attaches to. A thermostat is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. Just make sure that all old gasket material is removed from the housing before installing new gasket and thermostat. Also, don't overtighten the bolts, the housing can be easily compromised if the bolts are overtightened. Hope this helped and best wishes.
