I have a 1997 cavalier 2.2 has great heater and does not over heat but top radiator hose is hot bottom is cold have replaced water pump and the thermostat along with the radiator trying to figure this out....

It is normal for there to be a temperature differential. That's what the radiator does. Hot goes in and colder comes out. It is important to make sure the thermostat is the correct one for the vehicle and that is is installed pointing the correct way. The big end of the t-stat goes in towards the engine.

Hi, I think you're on the right track. Here are instructions from

3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain engine coolant from the radiator and engine.
  3. Disconnect radiator hose from the inlet pipe.
  4. Remove the thermostat housing, then remove the thermostat (2).

Fig. Exploded view of the thermostat housing (1), thermostat (2) and outlet pipe (3)

To install:
  1. Install the thermostat into the outlet pipe (4) making sure that the air hole is in the up position.
  2. Install thermostat housing and tighten the bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  3. Attach the radiator hose to the inlet pipe.
  4. Refill the engine with the proper type and amount of coolant.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Start engine and check for coolant leakage.

Cant locate the thermostat on 94 jetta 2.0


The thermostat on the 2.0 l ABA motor is located in a black plastic housing which resides on the UNDERSIDE of the motor, on the passenger side. It is normally hidden by the power steering pump, which must be moved out of the way in order to access the thermostat. Don't lose the o-ring!

1989 Ford Escort GT overheating

Sounds like to me it would be your water pump before a heater core. When the water pump goes out, it stops pumping the coolant through the system which is what would cause it to still overheat even with the thermostat out. Change the water pump and you should be good. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Cant put in thermostat

there are 2 things that can be wrong
1, the thermostat is upside down(doubtful as the housing won't sit properly and leave an obvious gap)
2, there is a bad seal between the housing and the surface where it goes. Just seal with a gasket sealing compound, but not too much as you can get some in the thermostat and block it.Or if the gasket, a thin piece of card cut to the shape of the housing base, is split replace with a new one.

Where socket goes on the bolt is stripped. need to remove?

You can try this if you're brave enough.........find a socket smaller then the one you used originally to strip the head....using a hammer...pound the new socket down on the bolt head.....or you can go to yoru favorite parts store, and buy a set of EZ OUTS, or EZ OFFS....they do about the smae thing but you won't destroy the socket taking hte bolt out.

Hope this helps you

Need to change my thermostat on my 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD

I do not know a link to a diagram, but I can certainly tell you how to find the thermostat! Looking at the front of the engine, there is a large water hose at the top of the motor that goes to the left, and attaches to the radiator. Not the radiator end, but the other end attaches to the thermostat cover. It has 2 bolts to take out and the little thing between that, and the motor about 2" around that kind of looks like a spinning top, is the thermostat. It is easy to change. Make sure you get ALL the old gasket off and that both bolts go through the new one, and you should be in business!
