Its on the drivers side of the engine facing sideways right next to the manifold you have to take off the air filter and housing and coolant hoses to get to it very tricky bolt takes time to get it off you will have to take off the skinny coolant pipe that wraps around the front of the engine up top and unscrew the tiny hoses attached so you can get your hands in there make sure the engine is cold or you will burn your hands for sure. good luck hope this helps

Need to locate and replace the water pump on 1997 nissan sentra.


The water pump is located on the passanger side of the engine. Look right below the timing chain cover and there is a pully and belt on the water pump. You will have to remove the water pump and thermostate together then seperate them after you get them off the car. I would recommend replacing the thermostate also (cheap fix). You will have to remove the belt and pully before you can remove the water pump. Hope this helps....

No heat when stopped for traffic


1-your thermostate is stuck open half way. thermostate is a simple device that made of enlarging metals when heat is applied. it suposed to be in close position to allow engine heat up, when specified temp reached it opens and let it flow and radiator tries to keep coolant cool.when it is broken it stucks or it acts slow or it wont acts at all. in your situation it is stuck open half way. it allows enough water to be heated but flow is limited to heat cabin heater.

2-if there are cabin heater selenoid/selenoids for two different temperature for cabin left and right, on some instance those selenoid valves to adjust cabin heater stuck open or closed like thermostate acts on first case. so heat is not enough to heat up cabin heater.

My car is over heating. I changed the thermostate need to know were/ how to drain radiator correctly and refill


Drains are located on bottom of radiator, Some models dont have them and you simply remove lower radiator hose to drain. But if its full and still overheating? Id have a look at the water pump. They are known to fail and cause severe engine damage

The heating doesn't warm air


The mixing valve is inside.You can follow the heater hoses back to the firewall to get a idea of where it is located.You can also go to the parts store and have them show you what the part looks like.The heater hoses will be two different sizes so mixing them up would be hard to do.

I do not have enough heat in my 1994 dodge ram truck


I expect the thermostate is stuck partially open not allowing the engine to come to proper temperature. Replace the thermostate found under the goose-neck (follow the upper hose back to the engine) under this piece is the thermostate. Be certain to clean all of the old gasket material away and use a new gasket. Watch to be ceratin the thermostate is not put in upside down, if this happens your issue won't be not enough heat but over heating.
I hope this may have been of help,

Over heating


The water pump has what's called a 'weeping hole' built into it. If the pump is bad You'll se water coming out of the hole. When was the last time you flushed the radiator? It may be your radiator cap is bad, they should be changed once a year & the radiator flushed. You can also test ur thermostate. take out ur thermostate & put it in a pot of water so that the water covers the thermostate. Then put a cooking thermometer in the pot to & heat the water til it says 195. u should see the car thermostate begin to open. if it don't it's bad & needs replacing.

Heat blowing Cold when in drive. When in Park, it is warm


have you chg. any thing lately like thermostate? added any coolent to system? if not, thermostate could be stuck in the open position. if stuck open, setting still, it will throw heat, but moving coolent flows to fast and does not get a chance to get hot. if you did chg. thermostate it could have a air pocket in the system. and also adding coolent can create an air pockets too. you will know this when your traveling down the road and temp guage fluctuates up and down. witch means air in system.

No heat in 93 Suburban


There is a valve that allows heated water to flow through the heater core when you select heat on your controls. This valve should be located under the hood and one of your heater hoses should run to it. Your valve is stuck or failed for some reason. Check it out.

Where to find the thermostate on 2001 stratus


If it's not up top it's behind the lower hose. I know it's behind the lower on the 2.7 litre motors.
