Want to know whats these codes mean [Engine rpn 704 rpm],[Map sensor 45 kpr], [cool ant temp 141f], [Dtc t caused rreezerrame p1281]. for a 2000 grand cherokee


Hi, the first part is data taken along with the code. The code P1281 indicates the engine is running cold (141 degrees--should be at least 190). Is your temp gage running lower than you are used to? If yes, it may be your thermostat has failed open. I have pasted below instructions for replacing the thermostat. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Replacing a thermostat on 2004 nissan sentra


  • Prepare for the replacement by disconnecting the negative battery cable and draining the engine coolant into a container--you need to remove the drain plug from the radiator first and then the drain plug at the engine block.


  • Remove the engine's cooling fan by loosening the fan/water pump pulley nuts, unclipping and removing the fan shroud's lower half, removing the water pump pulley nuts and pulling the fan out from underneath.

    Disconnect all components blocking access to the thermostat by removing their bolts. On four-cylinder engines, this includes the air cleaner, air intake duct and the power steering pump's support bracket. On a 3.3 liter V6 or SOHC engine, remove the upper radiator hose from the intake manifold's coolant outlet.

  • Slip off the drive belts blocking the thermostat by turning their tensioner bolts with a wrench or breaker bar. On a 3.3 liter truck or DOHC engine, follow this by removing the upper idler pulley bracket. On a 3.5 liter engine, remove the water pump drain plug from the front end of the block.

  • Detach all hoses from the thermostat housing cover by loosening the hose clamps with pliers; this usually includes the lower radiator hose. This is only needed on V6 engines; you will keep the hose attached on a four-cylinder.

  • Remove the thermostat housing cover by removing its bolts. There will be some coolant spilling out when the gasket seal breaks.


  • Disconnect and remove the thermostat from its cover by removing its screws. Take note of how the thermostat is positioned within the cover.

  • Scrape away all traces of gasket or sealant from the housing and cover and clean the surfaces with lacquer thinner.

  • Apply RTV sealant around the edge of the thermostat cover. You need to re-install the cover within five minutes of applying this sealant.

  • Mount the new thermostat into the cover in the same position the old thermostat was in.

  • Re-install the thermostat cover and all other parts in reverse order of installation.

  • Wait a half hour for the RTV sealant to cure before refilling the engine coolant. Use fresh coolant if the old coolant is contaminated.

    How do i replace the thermostat


    Follow this steps on how you can replace the thermostat. First,Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing cover by removing the bandclamp that holds the hose to the cover. This is done with a Phillipsscrewdriver. Slide the band clamp back away from the housing and pull the hoseoff. Remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing cover to the top ofthe Elantra intake manifold with an adjustable wrench. The bolts will bereused. They should not be discarded. Remove the old gasket that was pressed between the intake manifoldand the thermostat housing cover. It's a paper gasket and should pull off ofthe intake in one piece. Remove the thermostat from inside of the intakemanifold by pulling up on it. The gasket and thermostat can be discarded. Placethe new thermostat into the intake manifold of the Hyundai Elantra. Thethermostat must be placed with the top sticking out of the intake manifold forit to work properly. Use the old thermostat to orientate the new one. Place a small amount of PVC gasket sealer around the thermostat onthe base of the intake manifold. Allow the PVC to dry for ten minutes and thenplace the thermostat gasket on top of the gasket sealer. Place a small amountof PVC gasket sealer on top of the paper gasket and allow to dry for tenminutes. Place the thermostat housing cover onto the gasket and bolt it intoplace with the original bolts. You should see a small amount of PVC gasketsealer squeeze out between the housing and the intake. This is normal and itshould be left in place. Once it dries, it will add additional seal protectionand prevent leaking. Place the radiator hose back on to the thermostat housing cover andfix it into place by tightening the band clamp with a screw driver. YourHyundai Elantra is now ready to drive again. Hope this info help you.

    Need instructions for replacing thermostat on a 2001 Grand Cherokee 4.7 litre


    Do not loosen radiator drain **** with system hot and pressurized. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

    NOTE Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. If thermostat is being replaced, be sure that replacement is specified thermostat for vehicle model and engine type.
    Instructions

    1. Locate the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing by following the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose connects to the thermostat intake. A second, smaller hose connects to the left side of the radiator hose. This is a bypass hose for the heater.
    2. Remove the two bolts that secure the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing to the engine with a socket and ratchet and lift the intake upward to drain the coolant in the hose back into the radiator.
    3. Remove the gasket and the thermostat from the engine and discard them. Wipe the mating surfaces of the thermostat intake housing and the engine off with a clean towel.
    4. Place the new thermostat, spring down, into the engine and place the thermostat gasket over the thermostat.
    5. Place the thermostat intake housing onto the thermostat gasket. Thread the bolts into the thermostat intake by hand to avoid cross-threading the bolts and then tighten them using a socket and ratchet.
    Additional information:
    1. Clean mating areas of timing chain cover and thermostat housing.
    2. Install thermostat (spring side down) into recessed machined groove on timing chain cover.
    3. Position thermostat housing on timing chain cover.
    4. Install two housing-to-timing chain cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm).
      CAUTION Housing must be tightened evenly and thermostat must be centered into recessed groove in timing chain cover. If not, it may result in a cracked housing, damaged timing chain cover threads or coolant leaks.
    5. Install lower radiator hose on thermostat housing.
    6. Install splash shield.
    7. Lower vehicle.
    8. Fill cooling system.
    9. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
    10. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.

    How to replace thermostat


    Hi,
    The thermostat is located behind the thermostat housing on which the ECT is installed.It is attached to the lower radiator hose. Remove the lower radiator hose and the housing attached to it you would get the thermostat.To replace the thermostat, you must remove the air cleaner box, remove the thermostat housing cover, replace the thermostat with a new gasket, clean off any old gasket material, reinstall the housing cover and air box, and then fill and bleed the cooling system.
    Thank you !!
