Why it take a long time for the engine to warm up?


You may have trapped air or exhaust gas preventing water circulation. This may be a sign that the cylinder head gasket is leaking.

Mustang ran hot now starts but engine sounds rough, still running hot


this could be a number of problems , firstly with engine running remove radiator cap see if large bubbles of air appear, blown head gasket. second depending how long engine is running before temp rises to overheating, thermostat. third, O2 sensor could be damaged this will cause rough running and slight increase in engine temp.(unlikely if idles well) fourthly damaged valves (inlet/exhaust)

Where is the thermostat and how do i test it


follow top radiator hose it will take you to the thermostat housing.to check thermostat when engine is hot both radiator hoses should be hot to touch if the top radiator hose going to thermostat housing is cool not hot when engine is hot. the thermostat stuck closed causing engine to over heat need to replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.when replacing thermostat make sure to pay attention to position of thermostat so you can install new thermostat in the same position.

Running hot


When you say its running hot..is it "overheating" which would ruin your engine?
If it is running warmer than it should you may need to replace the thermostat..
If it is boiling over just a little when you park (making you THINK that it is running hot)...you need to replace the radiator cap, as the pressure seal is not working.. which will make it appear to be running hot...but its not...... the thermostat cap is a $5 to $10 item.... need more info

Frontier 2000 2.4L King Cab 100K miles. Temp guage indicates overheating. Will intermittently spike then drop to normal. Engine does not "smell" hot or run rough at any time. Grab upper hose, you can...


I've had problems with Datsun (later Nissan) engines hanging the closed thermostat until it boiled, then the thermostat released and operated normally. If you increase the small vent hole in the thermostat valve plate a small amount, the problem disappears. It seems that steam from engine operation gathers behind the thermostat sensing bulb and delays opening. The increase in vent hole size lets the steam through and allows the hot water to open the valve. Hope this helps!

2005 dodge caravan need to know symptoms for faulty thermostat


There are two primary symptoms of a faulty thermostat (assuming you mean the coolant thermostat in the engine not the A/C Heater Thermostat).  The thermostat can fail in basically two ways:
1)  Stuck open - Engine runs colder, heater takes forever to heat up. 2)  Stuck closed - Engine runs very hot, then will suddenly drop in temperature, then run very hot again.  Or engine overheats constantly.  When the engine is hot, feel the upper radiator hose.  If it is not hot, you can bet the thermostat is stuck closed.  If it is hot, the thermostat may not be stuck close, but not opening at the proper temperature.
Stuck open is annoying, but not dangerous.  Stuck close is dangerous and can cause overheating-related damage to your engine.
If you are handy, you can replace it yourself.  Otherwise it is an easy job for a mechanic.
