However when I turn the heat on it does not allow the car to heat up immediately, then when my windows are fogged up it takes time to clear the windows what could this be. thank you


It takes time for an engine to warm up. The heat from the heater comes from the water running through the engine. If the engine is cold, it will take a while for the heater to work. If the engine has a thermostat problem, it takes even longer. The thermostat is not supposed to open until the engine is heated up. If it stays open, the cold water takes a lot longer to heat up. A quick check is when the engine is cold, start it up and with the radiator cap off , have a look in at the radiator water. it shouldn't be flowing as the thermostat shouldn't be open. If the water is flowing on a cold engine, I would say the thermostat has jammed open and that's why its taking so long to heat up.

Sebring thermostat


I vaguely recall a bleeder on the intake or close to the top? Trapped air will make it overheat again.

Check the thermostat and the fan too. Overheating nothing to do with the heater core, even if you shut the heat off, the car should not overheat

The car takes a very long time to heat up


If your coolant is full, then your thermostat is probably bad.

Did you check to see if your clutch fan or electric fan is coming on when it A/C is turned on? That would be the main cause of why your car is overheating.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and


The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.

Car is reaching 220 when i idle...fans dont come on


On that car when you put the A/C on it throws it into a bypass mode to where the fan runs it's normal,but when you don't have the A/C on The fan should come on around whatever the thermostat rating is . try dropping the thermostat down to a 165 rating and also check your tempature sensor to see if it's operating at the right setting. Useually when a car over heats it'll damage the sensor so best to replace it to make sure and check your water pump flow also,it should move the water in the radiator quite rapidly whenever the thermostat opens .
