I have a 2005 Honda Crv- The problem I am having is the car is starting to get hot. It does not reach the danger zone but it does go from the bottom of the thermostat to the top of the thermostat picture....


definately sounds like a "hung" thermostat , also while you are changing your fluid ,you should purchase an antifreeze tester(cheap) and make sure your antifreeze is correct

Hot starting problems are usually fuel related. When a hot engine is shut off, the temperature of the engine and everything on it continues to rise for awhile as the engine undergoes a period of "heat soak." This can cause fuel to boil inside the carburetor bowl, fuel lines and fuel filter. When you attempt to restart the engine, "vapor lock" obstructs the flow of fuel and the engine doesn't want to start.
This is much less of a problem on fuel injected engines because the fuel is usually under much higher pressure inside the injectors and fuel line. Even so, a fuel line routed near an exhaust manifold or a fuel rail that's exposed to a lot of heat may still suffer the same kind of problems.
Heat soak problems such as these can sometimes be cured by wrapping insulation around affected fuel lines, and/or installing an insulating spacer or heat shield under the carburetor.
A Seasonal Problem Hard hard starting tends to be a seasonal problem, but may be worse in the early months of spring when refiners are switching fuel blends. Gasoline refiners produce fuel with a slightly lower volatility rating (called "Reed vapor pressure") during hot summer months because lower volatility fuel is less likely to boil and cause hot starting problems. During the winter, they switch to a higher volatility fuel because it makes cold starting easier. But if you still have "winter" grade fuel in your tank when warm spring weather arrives, you may experience some hot starting problems. The problem will go away, however, as soon as the refiners in your area switch to their summer grade fuel.
Other Causes Hot starting problems can also be caused by cooling problems that allow your engine to run too hot (the pistons swell up and may scuff the cylinder walls), or excessive resistance in the starter motor that causes the engine to crank slowly. A starter "amp draw" test can be used to check the condition of your starter. Also, many starters have small "heat shields" to protect them from heat radiating from nearby exhaust pipes or manifolds. If the shield is missing, the starter may get too hot and bind up.

Heating problems for Mitsubishi Galant 2000


1) The "heat" cycle on a vehicle depends on the engine's operating temperature when "heat'' desired," as well as the "external temperature of the atmosphere; colder days will create "lower" internal temperatures for the vehicle's passenger compartment as related to the amount of cooling of the radiator fluid through the radiator.
2) One option exists as to place "a 'piece of cardboard' in front of the radiator itself," especially in very cold areas of the country.
3) The other problem may involve your "thermostat" of the vehicle being "bad" (they fall apart sometimes), versus being of the wrong temperature variety; In this case your "automotive technician" should be consulted so as to replace your vehicle's thermostat with a different thermostat.
4) Lower temperature thermostats (185 F) open the system to the engine at 185 degrees; with 195 F opening the system at 195 degrees.
5) One of these solutions (the cheapest being the cardboard) may be of assistance (just remember to remove the cardboard in the summer/spring).

Engine overheat and no heat


Maybe your radiator is clogged.

Both of the hoses at the heater core should be hot. If one is cold the heater core is plugged. You can think of it this way. If the thermostat was stuck closed and you checked the upper and lower radiator hoses with the engine hot the upper hose would be hot and the lower hose would be cool because there is no flow. If you check the hoses with a properly working t-stat both hoses will be hot when the t-stat is open and coolant is flowing. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

My engine runs very hot when stuck in traffiic or at very slow speeds,the fan starts ok but it gets to the stage that the engine starts to miss fire,i have flushed the system and added Water Wetter but...


Your engine is getting hot enough to overheat the carburetors. That is why it is running poorly when it gets really hot. You have a classic problem normally only associated with air cooled engines. If you are in hot conditions, in stop and go traffic you have the same options as an air cooled bike. Turn it off and let it cool down (the fans will continue to run on most bikes) which will help but may run down the battery. The other option is to find another route that keeps you moving even if at in town speeds. If your mixture is set lean that can cause extra heat. If you have put on different exhaust pipes with out rejetting that can make you run lean/hotter. If you have opened the air box and put in a K&N air filter that can make you run lean/hot. If an oil cooler or bigger oil cooler is available that will help lower your engine temperature. Running synthetic engine oil and synthetic hypoid gear oil (in the final drive) will also lower engine temperatures. Try a spark plug one heat range colder. This is recommended in the owners manual for hot weather driving. Every little bit helps.

I'm getting hot water for 2 minutes , then it gets cold


Most electric hot water heaters have two thermostats, one near the top of the tank and one near the bottom, and are covered by removable metal cover plates. The thermostats are pressed firmly against the bare metal wall of the hot water heaters tank.

The top thermostat usually has a high limit switch that will trip if the water gets too hot. When it trips it shuts off the electricity to both the upper and lower heating elements.

To reset the high limit switch there is usually a red button that you must press. When the upper limit switch trips it is often an indication that something else has gone wrong with the heater.


When the top of the tank is hot the upper thermostat removes power from the upper heating element and transfers the power to the lower thermostat and heating element. If the lower thermostat is defective, then the lower portion of the tank will not be heated and the supply will be greatly reduced.
Check for power at the upper thermostat terminals where the power is sent to the lower thermostat and heating element. If there is no power then the upper thermostat should be replaced. If there is power then check for power at the lower heating element. If there is no power at the lower heating element then replace the lower thermostat.
If there is power to the lower heating element then it should be getting hot. If it is not, replace it. Another possibility is a broken dip tube. Check for a broken dip tube and replace if necessary.

Hope this helps out

Water Too Hot


needs new thermostat(s) If the whole tank is heating( next time it trips, before using any hot water check the lower tank thru the lower element access(breaker off) If the lower tank is hot-you need a new lower thermostat. if just the upper part of the tank is heating -you need an upper thermostat.

Heating problem


If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful.
