From your wording I think that you are still having over heat problems. Thermostat is only part of the system. You also have to check that your radiator is flowing and not clogged up. Also a bad fan clutch can cause it to run hot. A bad water pump or even a slipping or worn water pump belt.. If you have electric fans make sure they are coming on when they are supposed to.
The cylinder head gasket is blown. I'll bet the radiator burps alot and you're adding water/antifreeze all the time too, howzabout steam from the exhaustpipe? Hope you didn't crack or warp your cylinder head; good luck!
Stuck closed thermostat. Replace the thermostat.
Your thermostat is stuck closed. you will need to replace it. The thermostat controls the circulation through the radiator - when the engine heats up the thermostat is meant to switch circulation from just-engine to engine+radiator. Sounds like this isn't happening.
Run engine to normal operating temperature witout radiator cap Observe coolant circulation If coolant blows out of radiator - could be a stuck thermostat If no circulation could be a bad water pump
First replace your thermostat. To check circulation, fill the radiator and start the car with the radiator cap off. When the thermostat opens, you will be able to see water should circulate in the radiator. If the car is still getting hot, pull the radiator and take it to a shop. The will be able to tell you if there is good circulation, and if it will hold pressure. There should be no charge for testing.
there is no circulation possibly not enough coolant, stuck thermostat or failed pump
The thermostat is in the radiator. Open the radiator lid and pull the thermostat out.
The thermostat is located in the upper radiator hose. The radiator hose will need to be removed to get to the thermostat.
The coolant is pumped from the thermostat housing into the top of the radiator but not until the thermostat opens.
Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose at the engine and remove the 2 bolts in the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat and clean the surfaces. Install the new thermostat ,upper radiator hose and refill the radiator.
The thermostat is located on the front bottom of the engine. You can follow the radiator water hose from the radiator to the thermostat.
Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine, where it connects is the thermostat housing, the thermostat is inside.
Follow the lower radiator hose from the radiator to the thermostat.
Open the hood, locate the upper radiator hose on the radiator, follow the hose from the radiator, it will lead you to the thermostat housing on the engine, the thermostat is located under the thermostat housing.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator towards the engine. The upper radiator hose is connected to the thermostat housing on the engine side. The thermostat is under/inside the thermostat housing. Remove the upper radiator hose from the housing then remove the two bolts holding down the thermostat housing then remove the thermostat housing to expose the thermostat.
Drain the radiator. Remove the lower radiator hose from the motor. Unbolt the hose inlet, and remove the thermostat. Replace the thermostat and the inlet, the hose, and refill the radiator.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. It will lead you to the thermostat housing. Drain coolant from radiator, remove upper radiator hose from engine, remove the two bolts holding the thermostat housing to engine, remove housing, remove thermostat.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. It is attached to the thermostat housing. Removing the thermostat housing will expose the thermostat.
Unanswerable - not enough detail - the engine has to be at temperature for a while before the thermostat opens and so allow circulation, until then, one hose will be cool and one hot.
In the thermostat housing.....follow top radiator hose from radiator over to thermostat neck...its under the neck.
The thermostat is located on the front left of the motor facing the radiator(Almost directly below the radiator cap). The lower radiator hose is attached to the thermostat housing.
Follow your top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The top radiator hose connects to the thermostat housing on the engine . The thermostat is inside the housing
follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the engine the top radiator hose connects to the thermostat housing , the thermostat is inside the thermostat housing
The thermostat is located inside the radiator. Remove the radiator cap and pull the thermostat up. Remember to put the replacement thermostat in the same position push the new thermostat down in the radiator. The O-ring gasket will automatically seal.
The thermostat closes (preventing the circulation of cooling fluid through the radiator) while the coolant is below the setpoint. Once the fluid rises to the setpoint, the thermostat opens. This assures that the engine is operating at a specific temperature. Engines are far more efficient when operating at a higher temperature... so long as it isn't TOO high. Without a thermostat, the coolant constantly circulates through the radiator and cools as much as the radiator will allow.
The thermostat on a 1993 Toyota Celica can be found by following the outlet radiator hose. The thermostat on these cars are located at the bottom of the radiator.
