There could be a bunch of stuff going on. First I would take off the radiator cap or the overflow cap from the plastic tank, as most newer cars don't have radiator caps any longer and everything is filled via the overflow bottle. Drive the car until it gets to running temp. Then keep going and see if it overheats. If it does you have a bad radiator that is not holding pressure and U will have to replace that also. Are U sure the stat is working? tap on stat housing gently with a small hammer this sometimes frees them up. Even a new stat could get stuck. Did you put clean antifreeze in? At a 50%/50% mix. If not this could also cause a car to overheat or ran cold. You can do worse damage to your system by using straight antifreeze, that is why the bottle always tells you to mix as well as your owners manual.

1992 subaru legacy 2.2 liter overheating and no heat. already replaced waterpump,thermastat, radiator and hoses


You mean the car is running fine but just No Heat?
If so
-Sound like the heater hoses are plug. or the control valve is no function

-Check the heater control valve and flush the heater unit with water of garden hose from both directions.
Q: How do I know that is working or not?
A: Slide the heater control from Hot to cold or cold to hot and check it turn or not. (If not turn at all. The cable is broken or slip off)

The car was running fine and suddenly made a loud noise like water gurgeling all warning lights about water temp came on is it the thermastat


Sorry, not the thermostat. Check the coolant level and refill and locate the leak. I suspect the waterpump, make sure the belt is turning the waterpump. Do not drive an overheating engine.

I have a 2002 mercury sable that heater will not get hot. last year replaced a stopped up heater core and it was fine all winter. this year replaced thermastat and blend air actuator. its warm but not...


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.

Overheatin. think it't thermastat but can't find it. deffinetly not an oil or engin problem. also no leaks or breaks of any sort.


it usually is the thermostat if there are no leaks, follow the upper coolant hose on the radiator to the engine block. The thermostat is on the end of the hose. unfasten the bolts and replace withthe new one. ad more coolant if necessary.

1997 jag xk8 overheated, replaced thermastat and Waterpump still overheating?


Last year my car suddenly overheated while idling to the point the coolant tank exploded. I took it to a foreign car repair shop where they replaced the coolant tank and put in another thermostat. It didn't make it home before it overheated again. I took it to the Jag dealership where they felt that my hoses had expanded to much during the overheat so they replaced all of my hoses to a tune of $1000. Three months later it overheated again. I took it to another foreign car repair shop where they discovered the real culprit. An impeller had broken off of my waterpump, I had a blockage in my radiator, and I had a short in one of the coolant fans that made it only work part of the time. So about $2400 later my car has been coolant issue free for about 2 years now. Good luck and I hope this helps.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start in the winter...(15,000km)


Try using a fuel treatment. Sometimes water builds up in the lines and makes it hard for the car to start cuz you can't combust something thats frozen... I'd recommend Lucas Fuel Treatment... either that, or maybe new spark plugs, though if the dealer thought they were fine, I don't think that's the case.
