Never really mearsured one. Wouldn't think its to far, 1/4 to 3/8" because there just isn't any room to go further. If it barely opens it's bad

2005 LeSabre closed loop temperature?


Most cars go into closed loop around 160.. Maybe a little higher.. You could go online to a racing site to buy a lower temp thermostat.. Good luck.

How far should I drive My car after putting new cookant sensor in it to clear code


First of all, the coolant sensor may not be the reason for the code being set. The thermostat is more likely the culprit. The P0128 code indicates that the coolant temperature is not coming up to operating range fast enough and this is usually because of a partially open or slow thermostat. For this type of issue, it is normal to replace both items since they are in the same general area and are relatively inexpensive.
As far as clearing the code, this can be done by disconnecting the battery for about 30 minutes, or just driving the car for several days.

No heat no defrosters


Your thermostat is stuck, or your antifreeze is low, or your inline heater core valve is stuck closed. Has to be one of those three. Check the antifreeze first. If full, check the heater core valve. then the thermostat.

Looking for an assembly diagram for a thermostat for a 1999 for taurus 3.0 SOHC. Or assembly order of gasket, before the thermostat or after it? Also, could lack of heat in car be due to something other...


Thermostat and then gasket. As far as your heat problem goes I would guess heater core, maybe partial blockage. 90% of the time heater core is the problem with no heat. The other thing it might be, but only if the engine itself isnt getting all the way hot, would be your temperature sending unit. That controls when your thermostat opens and closes.

I have 2000 Ford F150 the heater does not work it blows cold air only the A/C does not blow cold air in the summer. I can smell anti freeze but see no signs of it leaking


As far as the heater goes, that sounds like your thermostat is stuck open. If so, you will need to replace it. It is fairly easy to replace. Find the big hose coming from the top of the radiator and follow it to the engine block. Right where it connects to engine, you will find the housing for the thermostat. 3 1/4" or 5/16" bolts hold it on. Inside the housing is the thermostat. You may need to place a catch pan underneath the vehicle as you will lose some antifreeze when disconnected. Note which way the thermostat comes out, as the new one will need to go in the exact same way.
A new thermostat will cost about $12-$15 at your local AutoZone or other auto parts store.

As far as the A/C, that could be a totally separate item. The conditioner may just need recharged. Any local auto repair shop can do that for you.

Coolant bizarre behavior


if car doesn't run hot with no thermostat...you may be air-locking system when installing thermostat. I always fill the engine block up to the thermostat housing to make sure that engine is full of fluid ..then install thermostat...spring facing down..thenfill radiator making sure car is running so as not to air lock system ...run until top hose gets warm ,showing that your thermostat opened
