Open the car hood. look at the radiator, and then the top radiator hose. follow that hose to the engine. the hose connects to the thermostat housing cap. under that cap is the thermostat. here's what you need: ratchet, and sockets, flat-tip screwdriver, scraper, pliers, a new thermostat (any auto parts store), a new gasket, and some gasket sealant. Question, how old are hoses? if 3 years or old, let change those also. 2 new hose, 4 hose clamps, and some coolant. If we're changing hoses with this, lets start. drain the radiator, and remove the hard hose first, the bottom. now remove the top.hose, and lets start the thermostat. remove the bolts holding down the cap, and gently pry off the cap. flip the cap over, and scrape it clean to metal(we want NO leaks). now reach down and remove the thermostat, and lets scrape the housing clean to metal. place the new thermostat in the housing, and lets put a thin coat of gasket sealant on the housing. place the gasket on the sealant, and pick up the cap. apply a little gasket to the cap. place on top of the gasket, and bolt it down. now hook the hoses(if your changing them)and let sit 30 minutes for the gasket sealant set. after that, let add the coolant, and water. start the car, let it warm up. when the new thermostat opens, add more coolant as need to top it off. Hope this helps

    I checked several other sites on your vehicle. They all say your thermostat is located at the water inlet/housing on the top of the engine near the distributor. The inlet/housing is where the hose meets the engine. That's what several other sites say. Can you remove the housing the hose connects to? let me know, I will keep searching for an answer

    From what I have seen and read on your car, that's where the thermostat goes. Have you checked the fan to make sure its working? Let me know, I'll keep working on it

    lets take a look at the system then. Since we know there's not a thermostat installed( you do need to get one still), we have to look at 2 other things. one, the water pump is not working. Can you look at the flow when the car is running. (leave radiator cap off, start car and let it get warm) You can then see the coolant flowing to the engine. Does you radiator hose collapse when the car is running( it will try to flatten out)? two, the radiator is clogged or no good. then that will have to be replaced. Lets try one first. It's way much cheaper. let me know. we will get this.

    Is the water pump circulating the coolant, is the next question. If that is ok, I'm not sure it is at this point, the radiator may be bad. everything else we have tried, is good. I'm still here working on it with you.

    The thermostat is at the rear on the bottom hose near power steering pump above alternator

Overheating in Diahatsu Charade 92. EFI 16 Valve.


Did you burp the coolant? If not, you have air bubbles in the system that are trapped behind the thermostat, keeping it from opening. Run the car at idle until it's 3/4 of the way to overheating, then shut it down and let it cool. Pop the radiator cap and the air bubbles will burp out. Check the level of coolant in the radiator and expansion tank, top off as needed, and repeat a couple times, and you should be good to go.

Car overheat frequently and at time the engine sound is very loud


Several things can cause this overheating. Have you recently done a:
1. Check Hoses for Leaks
2. Check Radiator for Leaks --- Also, Change Radiator Cap ( can loose pressure there if
cap is bad)
3. Check Water Pump for Leaks. If Water Pump is bad, you will hear a loud noise from it
4 Complete Tune Up? Should be done at least 1x a Yr. Depending on how much you drive the Vehicle. Includes: Plugs, Plug Wires, Gas Filter, Air Breather Filter, PCV Valve, Adjust Timing,
Check Belts -- see if worn
5. Changed your Thermostat & Gasket and have the correct degree Thermostat in the Vehicle?
6.. Had your Radiator Rod and Cleaned out?
7. Temperture Sending Unit (located near Thermostat) could be bad
8. 02-Sensor (Generally located in the Exhaust Manifold - needs a socket with a space in it
to allow the Socket to fit over this top wire of the 0-2 Sensor )
9. Change oil and oil Filter.
10. Change Gas Tank Cap ---

Do all this yearly ( except the Radiator Rod & Clean ( do every 2-3 yrs), and you should not have
any over-heating nor stalling out, etc. and should pass emissions as well.
