My first guess would be the thermostat is not closing.
A mechanic would use an inferred heat gun to check the upper and lower hoses while the engine is running to see if the coolant is flowing when it should not be.

Car intermittently dies, uneven throttle, computer not reporting correctly


I had a similar problem with my 280 Datsun. It turned out to be the fuel pressure sensor located near the fuel injectors. Some of them come with a vacuum hose attached.

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 6 cyl. acts like it wants to stall. I recently had a thermostat sensor replaced and that seemed to fix the problem. However two months later, the problem has returned. A


I'm assuming you mean a coolant temp sensor. The sensor tells the computer what the coolant temp is.
Normally when a sensor fails the check engine light comes on to warn the driver. Normally but not always.
One thing that could affect both problems you describe is the idle air control valve. If the valve fails or sticks, the engine can stall or have a high idle speed. The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the throttle body.
The throttle body could also be very dirty.

IM TRYING TO REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT ON MY 2004 ENVOY WHERE IS IT LOCATAED EXACTLY


The thermostat on this vehicle's In-line 6 cylinder engine is on the driver's side of the engine, below & behind the alternator. You have to remove the alternator to gain access to the thermostat housing. You also need to disconnect the battery before you remove the alternator to avoid sparks and shorts.

Most directions outline removal of the alternator to gain easy access to the hose clamps, bolts and housing of the thermostat. I have located a site that after free registration, has detailed instructions on how to do this job, and the link below that describes an easier method with photos. Check out:

Replace thermostat on 2004 gmc envoy


The thermostat on this vehicle's (the Envoy & Trailblazer are essentially the same vehicle) In-line 6 cylinder engine is on the driver's side of the engine, below & behind the alternator. It is not found in the typical location (which may be for the 8 cylinder engine), in an answer above.

Hi ..... With this milage I'd expect at the same time the following would have been done, valve seals changed, valve guides checked/replaced, bores honed and valves reground into the cylinder head. Not to have done any of these is false economy and bad engineering practice.
The symptoms you state, esp'ly on topping up, point towards valve seals or guides.
Take the plugs out and examine, they should all be a light tan. Carryout a compression test across the bores and come back with the results.

Finding the thermostat in a 1987 suzuki swift


Not familiar with your vehicle but engines of that period will normally have them hidden under a fitting that probably is a diamond-shaped cast aluminum piece with one of the radiator hoses leading to it and held in place by two (rarely more) bolts.
It will be either on the head or the block.

Just follow the (large) hoses from the radiator and the one with a fitting as described will likely have the thermostat concealed under it.
