You need to replace the thermostat. You may have it at maximum but it is opening at very low temp since it because the mechanical parts inside like spring and contact have damage.

Heater Control Valve?


it can be at the heater or at the hose end on the block or heads or valley cover
it can be cable controlled but most now are vacuum controlled by the controls in the cab so look for a round cylinder on a heater hose that will have a small vacuum hose coming out of it

How to chose oil for your engine.


There are many types of oil on the market from many different makers and each will claim to be the best oil for your car. They'll claim to have the best year-round protection even when they don't know where you live. As engine technology improves, perhaps the oils will improve too. Until then, here is some helpful information on buying the propper weight of oil for your auto.

When chosing oil for any type of engine, the important thing to consider is the thickness of the oil which is identified by the oil's "weight.". The higher the weight - the thicker the oil. Got it?

Engine oil serves two functions. It lubricates the moving parts, and it helps keep the engine from overheating by reducing friction between those moving parts. When you pour oil in your engine, it drains right down to the bottom and settles in the oil pan. When you start your engine, that oil is basically splashed around to coat whatever is near.

Oil behaves like pancake syrup. When it's warm, it's thin and runny. When it's at room temperature, it's thick and not quite as tasty. A thin oil (low weight) it will drip back down into the pan more quickly than a thick oil and therefore won't cling to those moving parts quite as long. A low weight oil of 10w would be good for sub-zero temperatures. The hotter the engine gets, the thinner the oil gets. So, you need an oil that will be as thick as your engine can handle so that as it heats, it won't become too thin. If you live in a climate that is hot year-round, use a thick, high-weight oil.

Some will say that if the oil is too think, it won't run down fast enough to carry away the heat from the engine. Yes, that is true. However, oil is not designed to cool the engine. Oil is designed to prevent heat buildup. There is a big difference. Oil is not a remedy for heat, it is a prevention of heat.

Your car's engine does not get hot from the small explosions of gas burning inside the engine. That heat is expelled with the exhaust air. Your car's engine gets hot from the heat that is generated by the friction of the moving parts within. If you reduce the friction, then you reduce the amount of heat that is generated. That is what oil does. Therefore, it needs to coat, stick and stay put.

Mitsubishi shogun 1998 model 2.8 over heating no leeks water is blowing back into the overflow bottle when hot


How are you sure it is overheating? Temp gauge? Most likely are stuck thermostat, bad fan thermostat switch, bad fan. bad head gasket. Coolant going into overflow when hot is how that system is suppose to work. As it cools, fluid is drawn back into radiator. It it is not really overheating, bad radiator cap can allow coolant into reservoir more than normal.

How do you use the dial and what is it for


This heater has both a dial and a wattage selector. The dial is a thermostat, so it will turn the heater on and off as the temperature gets warmer and colder. Just like the thermostat on the wall in a house. The wattage selector switches let you pick how much heat goes in when the thermostat (the dial) tells the heater to turn on.
If you set the wattage at a higher level, the heater will use more power at once, but will turn on and off fewer times to keep the temperature determined by the dial setting.
If you set the wattage to a lower level, the heater will use less power at once, but will turn on more often and still use about the same amount of electricity.
So the dial really lets you pick how warm you want it to be in the room, and the wattage switches let you pick how often it turns on and gets hot. So this dial really determines how hot your room will be.

Becoming more efficient with your heating and cooling


Here are some ways to become more efficient with your heating and cooling. Obviously you do not have to do them in order but try to complete as many as you can! = )
· Buy a laser thermometer! You can use this to detect air leaks (or at least areas with “minor” temperature differences) so you know where to put seals
· Keep blinds shut on hot days and open on cold days----helps reduce temperature extremities
· If the temperature is can be negated by using a t-shirt or a jacket, use that clothing! You will save temperature control costs and still be able to keep warm or cool
· Do not use those old lightbulbs on hot days---they make extra heat increasing cooling bills (but you can use them on cold days to help warm your house)
· Utilize energy star products to increase efficiency comfortably
· Set your thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as is comfortable in the summer.
· If you are on vacation, turn of that air conditioning/heating! No one will be in the house if everyone is away and it shouldn’t be too uncomfortable to wait like one hour for the house to cool/heat
· Don’t turn your thermostat up/down just to heat/cool faster---all temperature control changes the house temp at the same rate and if you forget to turn it off, you just wasted some energy there!
· Don’t block heating/cooling vents so that your rooms can be controlled quickly and so that your air actually gets controlled, not your furniture
· Check up your air conditioning and heating systems regularly (not once a month but maybe once every year) so that the systems stay running the best they can

Why does a chair get hot, if we sit on it for a long time?


Your body is warm, around 37'c sitting on a chair for a long time will warm the chair up to that temperature. at some point it may feel warmer when it has reached or near that, because your body is constantly producing heat. You are used to room temperature 22'c when the chair gets near body temperature it will be much warmer than the air in the room.

I have a '96 mitsubishi 3000GT and it keeps over heating. I've had the thermostat replaced twice and am constantly changing the oil. what could be wrong?


I would make sure that when it gets warmed up that the cooling fan is kicking on.If not I would try changing the coolant temp. sensor on the engine for the cooling fan or test the fan to make sure the fan is still good.The fan should be mounted to the radiator.

My heat is not working that good. When it gets colder outside and my car's temp gauge goes down, the less heat I seem to get out of the system. When the car is idling at a stop is when the heat starts...


Your thermostat is probably stuck open, not allowing the engine to warm up to its normal operating temperature. The coolant circulates all the time, so the radiator is constantly dumping all of that heat. Replace the thermostat, and your problem should get better. You may even consider installing a higher temperature thermostat if you live in a colder climate.

Programmable Thermostat Model 43157


On my Hunter model, there is a "Span" setting that allows you to change how long the AC/Heat will run before it turns off. Basically, it sets the acceptable range (above and below) your temperature setting. To access this press both the up and down arrows and hold them. "Span" should show up with a number (1,2, or 3). For your problem, change the setting to 1 so the AC will run shorter, and more frequently to keep the temperature more constant.
