water pump maybe bad
Most likely this is the result of a stuck thermostat.
If you have a V8 the thermostat is located under the coolant inlet tube. The tube is located on top of the engine, in the front about center. The thermostat is hard to change, I changed mine when I installed a new water pump. Hope this helps. Lou
The thermostat on a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L is replaced by draining the coolant and disconnecting the radiator hose. The housing is then unbolted, the thermostat removed, and a new unit put in its place.
water pump or cooling fans or thermostat low coolant
It is the two wire sensor next to the thermostat housing.
stop an engine
Water pump maybe?
"COOLANT THERMOSTAT" -COOLANT TEMP BELOW THERMOSTAT TEMPERATURE
if u changed thermostat it has to be reset so fan can turn on correctly
could be many things: no coolant / coolant leak thermostat stuck closed air bubles after coolant change fan(s) or fan switches broken excesive load on engine (towing)
You may have blown your head gasket .
If it is leaking coolant. And you changed the thermostat. I would then move to this section. Flush the radiator and the heater core. This can be done at a certified shop with a reliable mechanic.
Depending on your thermostat between 185 and 210 degrees
Blocked radiator, low on coolant, stuck thermostat, air in cooling system
There are all sorts of places that coolant can be leaking from. You just have to look until you locate it.

The thermostat on a 99 Mitsubishi Galant is changed by draining the coolant, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the housing. The thermostat can then be removed and a new one put into place.
flush the system and change thermostat,this should fix problem. I flushed mine and i changed coolant and thermostat,it is now fine.
First check the water level. Low level will not get to the heater core. Change the thermostat. If you recently changed the thermostat, bleed the coolant system.
it is the 2 wire sensor next to the thermostat housing.(the thing the upper radiatorhose hooks to)
Depending on the engine, the coolant temperature in a Cadillac could be from 180 to 195 degrees. The thermostat can be changed to give a lower or higher temp reading.
A 1994 Jeep Cherokee uses green coolant.
Answercould be:- bad thermostat - bad coolant / distilled water ratio / low levels? - plugged radiator - bad o2 sensor (engine runnin lean) - coolant lines plugged upwhat are the symtoms?i can diagnose better if i knew.yea it could be a number of things but in addition to the answer above you could have air behind the thermostat. if there is an air pocket behind the thermostat instead of coolant the thermostat wont open.
