Make sure you didn't put it in backwards. Even after working on cars over the years I have been known to make those minor mistakes being in a hurry. If you have an electric fan make sure it's working. Once your car reaches a certain temp it should kick on. I would yank the thermostat and flush the coolant system with a kit you can get at most parts stores. Run it without the thermostat and see if it's still overheating. If no then reinstall the thermostat. If yes then it would most likely be your water pump.

Heater in 1996 Cirrus not blowing hot air. Radiator hose is cold


did you put new thermostat in the right way ? do you have a 50/50 coolant mixture in rad, 50 % water in rad is what gives you heat, aside from your thermostat, are your heat controls in the proper locations ?

Car heating up coolent boiling fan comes on ''no coolent in the oil 2.4 1997 sunfire were and how hard is it to change the thermasta


the thermostat is in the housing where the top radiator hose goes onto the motor, it isn't that difficult to replace all you have to do is remove the top hose from the housing,undo the bolts take the housing apart remove the thermostat & clean both surfaces with a suitable scraper or sand paper,fit the new thermostat then the new gasket & put the housing back together & refit the top radiator hose.
a couple of things to careful of : 1. DO NOT try to force the bolts to much as they may break 2. DO NOT over tighten the bolts when tightening......hope this helps......cheers

How to change thermostat


Follow the upper rad hose to the thermostat housing. Drain the rad into a pan low enough as to not lose any antifreeze. Remove the housing bolts & gently tap the housing to release the thermostat. Make sure you notice the direction of the thermostat & install it the same way. Clean both surfaces & use some gasket sealer on the housing side only. Make sure your thermostat is in the grove when you tighten the housing otherwise you might crack the housing. Hold tight & fasten bolts. Refill rad, put heat on high & start the car. Check fluid level again & refill. Good luck!

95 Jeep Wrangler YJ...No heat, temp at about


It should be 200 degrees. If your running cold the only thing that regulates temp is the thermostat. If it is indeed 150 degrees thats why you have no heat.

If you replaced the water pump and the radiator for this condition then it was a waste of money. If you had a water pump or radiator problem it would overheat.

The fact that your blowing cold air tells me the that you really are 150 degrees or the heater core is plugged.

Still want to shoot into a thermal runaway.


First of try to understand exactly what part you mention exactly how they work or function
  1. please place a new low speed relay as it try to make out thermal heating cool at it's initial 1st stage level of heating so that the temperature remain maintain if thus it reaches the second level of heating then the high speed relay act at that time & the speed of radiator fan increase to get thermal heating in control.
  2. the thermostat regulate the heating temperature of the engine it senses the temperature & signal to the relay the relay then react according to the temperature level of engine at low heating it operate the low speed relay & high temperature it signal to high speed relay so the engine temperature does not rise to extended level of heating or overheating.
  3. see for thermostat valve is failure if that so replace it new sometime most of the mechanic change it or cancel it so that the temperature does not rise as this thermostat help engine maintain it's ideal temperature which is required by the engine for regular or good working even at extreme climatic condition.
  4. Do check for every tensioner or Ideal Bearing as far consider on the No. of miles or Km the vehicle has run according to us the tensioner or ideal bearing are suppose to be replace at an interval of 30000 to 35000 Km. but this replacement include both Engine timing belt & tensioner & ideal tensioner bearing.
  5. A water pump flow depend on the tension of the drive belt some vehicle come with water pump which drive on inner timing belt tension & some on the fan belt or external tension belt of engine.
for further more FAQ do send in or place your problem we will sort it out till then have a safe drive & happy motoring from siddhanth.....!

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy


Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.
