2005 town and country heat does not work it only blows warm air i changed the thermostat and its still the same


No.
There are no heater control valves of years gone by. And if the water pump was not pumping the engine would run very hot.
If the radiator is full, and the thermostat is working, the heater hoses should be hot, and the problem could be a faulty blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the ac evaporator as well as the vents.

Check the thermostat, if it isn't opening when engine warms up, the coolant in the engine will overheat and make pressure in the cooling system but the fluid in the radiator will still be cold.

I changed the coolant and now it's running so hot that I can only go a few miles before I have to stop and let it cool off. It was OK before I changed the coolant. I used the proper orange type and I...


What I would check before replacing the thermostat. Is to make sure that you got enough coolant in the engine. When you are refilling the coolant, the thermostat keeps you from getting any coolant in the engine. All you will fill is the radiator. The thermostat has to open to allow coolant in the engine block. So double check to see if you have enough coolant.

Jeep Liberty 2005 3.7 engine running hot, need to install thermostat? fan working, full of water , water tank cap fits good.


A new thermostat would be the easiest and cheapest to do first.There is also the water pump but that normally would cause a complete overheat,probably after about 20-30 miles,water boiling out the overflow.Good luck! Greg

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!

It may be temperature sensor on radiator. Dashboard gets info from it. If this sensor is not good, ac will stop and dashboard willl show some strange temperatures.

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.
