Yes that is your problem, the antifreeze is filled through the tank and runs into your radiator to cool and then through the top hose into you engine and then back to the radiator bottom hose

What is mean by thermostate valve


The thermostat is a critical part of your coolant system, the system that circulates water and antifreeze (coolant) through the engine to keep it from over-heating. It is called a valve because it can open and close, depending on how hot the coolant is acting upon it.
The reason to put a thermostat in the coolant system is to allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature quicker (and therefore operate at peak efficiency) than without a thermostat.
When the engine is cold, the coolant is at normal outside temperature, so the thermostat is closed. This means when you start the car, the coolant starts circulating through the engine, but can't flow into the radiator. With a closed thermostat, the coolant just keeps circulating around in the engine until the car warms up, the coolant gets hot, and the heat acts upon the thermostat, causing it to open at a certain temperature (about 185-195 degrees F.), With the thermostat now open, the coolant can now enter the upper radiatior hose and flow down the radiator to cool itself down, before going back into the engine through the lower radiator hose.
So the thermostat is always found on a car in the area where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. Thermostat closed-water can't circulate through the radiator. Thermostat open- coolant is forced through the hose into the radiator.
I hope this helps you understand the thermostat valve and why all manufacturers include them.

I have a 94 ford explorer limited and it just started over heating today. i have already replaced the upper radiatior hose and heater control valve. i am not sure what would be causing it to over heat


the first thing I would try is thermostat. They are cheap. When it starts to overheat turn the heater on High. If the temp drops at all then its not the water pump. The heater will not blow hot if water is not circulating.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
A quart will be good. Please make sure that the fluid sits on the max level. Over filling it may lead to spilling which can cause the car to overheat.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1999 mercury grand marquis occcasionally overheats, blows antifreeze out around radiatior cap & has a gurgling sound coming from passenger floor/dash area. Have replaced thermostat, hoses, waterpump,...


The Grand Marquis's have a know problem that causing overheating. The intake manifold cracks around the water inlet tubes on the intake manifold causing it to loose anti-freeze which in turn causes overheating. Mercury has a beefed up replacement intake manifold that cures the problem. It was a subject of an unannounced recall but they would replace it unless the problem occurs. The recall was for 7 years which the 1999 model wouldn't qualify for now. It happened to me and cost about $450.00 (parts and labor) to fix it. I used a local repair shop to do the work. If, after the engine is hot, you hear water/steam coming from the top of the manifold, you have the problem

HOW DO I REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT IN A 2000 FORD MUSTANG V6


1. Make sure the engine is cool.
2. Using a clean bucket disconnect the lower radiator hose and carefully drain around 1 gallon off coolant then reconnect hose.
3. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine where it's connected to the gooseneck on the engine.
4. remove the 2 bolts holding the gooseneck and lift it up to remove the thermostat making a mental note on how it was installed.
5. Clean both sides of the gasket surfaces, install new thermostat in the same position it was removed and replace O ring(only use a Motorcraft replacement to avoid having fit issues) alternate tightening bolts until tight.
6. Refill radiatior to proper level.
7 Leaving the raditor cap off, start the car turn on the heater and let it warm up keeping an eye on the coolant level, it will go down once the air works it's way out of the cooling system.
8. Top off the system and tighten radiator cap. Check the coolant level several times during the week, there may still be some air left in the system.

Leaking antifreeze, doesn't run hot, took off hoses thought it was the top hose and can't see anything wrong with it. Can't see any cracks in radiatior any ideas?


You state you checked the top hose, did you check the bottom hose as well? Also, there is the possibility it could be leaking at the water pump.

2002 Saturn SC1 - Starts fine and runs well until the engine gets warm. Then I will step on the gas peddle and the engine will die. Sometimes it won't die it will just have no power to move. Fuel Pump?...


Most Likely Coolant temp sensor & connector.Located in cyclinder head under upper radiatior hose.Two wires to connector yellow & black.Replacement sensor is brass (from saturn) Original is ceramic & cracks cause poor performance,stalling,idle issues.Also check plugs & wires for carbon tracking.Replace plugs & wires as a set all at once.Hope this helps

2004 MUSTANG HEATER PROBLEM


both sides ? the only thing i can think of then is either an air pocket or the thermostat is installed in reverse... (it happens).

add antifreeze to the overflow tank and squeeze the upper rad hose a few times while it is hot and see if that helps
