You need to check coolant temperature sensor and the water pump.

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1993 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?

my 1993 Toyota Camry radiator had a hole in it it was overheating. I replaced the radiator. The car is still overheating where is the thermostat located. First, drain your coolant from the radiator. Find your lower radiator hose and follow it to the metal housing. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 nuts with a 10mm wrench. Remove the thermostat and replace with new one and new gasket. Re-install and re-fill your radiator with new coolant. Drive the car with heater running. Allow the engine to cool and top off the radiator. Add coolant to the reservoir to halfway between Full and Low.

Why does my car surge and won't start replaced thermostat and radiator?

When the thermostat and radiator were replaced, coolant could have dripped into an electrical connector or a sensor could be disconnected or damaged. Check the temperature sensor and crankshaft sensors first.

The coolant starts to boil shortly after starting the engine. State the fault indicated and how you would diagnose the fault?

Coolant not being circulated through the radiator/radiator fan subsystem. Most probably the thermostat is malfunctioning. Two ways to test this fault: (1) Coolant accumulates in coolant reservoir. (2) Remove the thermostat and immerse in boiling water; if thermostat does not open, replace unit.

Why does Overflow Reservoir on 1999 Ford Taurus keep overflowing gauge doesn't read hot changed the hoses flushed Radiator replaced Thermostat and reservoir?

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Combustion gases can enter the cooling system through either a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. The gases (under pressure) force coolant out of the reservoir. This also causes a void in the upper part of the cooling system , leaving no coolant at the thermostat and the coolant temperature sending unit. The result is a erroneous temperature Reading and will even prevent the thermostat from opening.

What does it mean when gage inside reads car is hot yet antifreeze is not going down in reservoir or radiator on 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme?

It sounds like you may need to replace your thermostat. Even though you have enough coolant in the radiator and overflow reservoir the coolant may not be circulating through the system because the thermostat is not opening. When the coolant can't flow through the engine and radiator it will get very hot and stay very hot. This is usually an inexpensive and fairly easy fix, just purchase a new thermostat and install it or have a mechanic do it for you.

How do you know if your car needs a new thermostat?

If your radiator isnt leaking and car is having a over heating problem and coolant spewing out. Chances are your thermostat needs replaced. possible the radiator needs to be flushed. But more likley its thermostat

Why doesn't coolant circulate in radiator?

your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.

You have oil backing up in your coolant reservoir and you have no heat in your car what do you do nowwe cant find the thermostat.we replaced the radiator and that was no help what do i do now?

Oil can't "back-up" into the coolant, they run in separate systems... you wasted money on the radiator, the thermostat is irrellivent, your engine block is probably cracked although it could be a gasket or loose bolts... you need a good mechanic and money

Where is the coolant sensor on a 2001 Mercury Sable and is it possible to replace it without replacing the entire coolant reservoir?

NOTE: this answer is describing the location of the engine coolant temperature sensor - NOT the coolant sensor in the reservoir that warns when the level gets too low.The coolant temperature sensor is located directly adjacent to the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is what the upper radiator hose (toward the right side of the engine compartment) connects to. You do not have to replace the reservoir to replace this part, but leaky coolant reservoirs are a common problem on this model.

What is reservoir?

The reservoir is usually considered to be the tank which holds coolant. It feeds the coolant into the radiator when needed, and receives coolant from the radiator as is necessary. This is where you check and maintain the coolant level. Make sure the cap is on quite tight.

What causes coolant to backup and spill over in the reservoir until its all gone?

the reason why the coolant is spilling up over the reservoir is because the thermostat needs to be replaced because when the engine needs water the thermostat heats up from the engine and causes the springs to expant which opens a seal to allow the water throughout the engine i just realpaced the thermostat in my volkswagen

Where is the coolant level sensor on a 2004 Saturn Vue. In the radiator or the reservoir?

at the bottom of the coolant reservoir tank.

89 Cadillac Seville seems to get really hot towhere the coolant bubbles in the reservoir what could be the problem?

Head gasket? Low coolant level? Water pump not circulating coolant? Thermostat not opening? Radiator plugged or restricted?

How can you tell if the thermostat is going out?

Vehicle takes an excessive time to attain normal operating temperature Heat not HOT with coolant full - thermostat not closing properly Vehicle heats up too soon - No heat with coolant full Coolant boils out of reservoir or top of radiator - thermostat not opening

How do you put coolant back in the radiator in a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT since there is no cap on the radiator.?

Add the coolant into the coolant reservoir. Be sure the engine is cool when you remove the cap off the reservoir.

Does a bad thermostat cause coolant to leak out?

It can if it is stuck closed the engine overheats causing hot air ( steam ) to flow backwards to radiator cap which releases and blows steam pressure into recovery reservoir which starts blowing out the coolant in the reservoir making a puddle on ground.

In a 93 Toyota Camry do you put the the coolant in the radiator or the reservoir?

Both. The reservoir is the overflow. But in the event your radiator is low, your reservoir will back it up.

Where is the radiator sensor located?

For the coolant level it is usually located in the coolant reservoir. For the coolant temperature it is usually located on the engine close to the thermostat or on a cylinder head. Need more info like year, make and model to help you more.

Why there is no fluid coming from the radiator to the thermostat hosing?

The coolant is pumped from the thermostat housing into the top of the radiator but not until the thermostat opens.

What is the Function of a thermostat?

The function of a car thermostat is to ensure that coolant gets to the radiator when it should. It blocks the coolant from reaching the radiator when the radiator is cold, and then lets it flow once it is heated up.

What if your coolant keeps boiling out?

Thermostat needs to be replaced, it is not opening (most common). Is electric fan on radiator running normally from time to time?

Is it normal for coolant water to go into the reservoir?

Yes- coolant reservoir is designed to accept excess coolant - As coolant heats up it will expand and flow to the coolant recovery tank (reservoir) and as it cools (contracts) it will be sucked back into the radiator

What is the function of a car thermostat?

The function of a car thermostat is to ensure that coolant gets to the radiator when it should. It blocks the coolant from reaching the radiator when the radiator is cold, and then lets it flow once it is heated up.

01 Malibu 31 replaced thermostat no leaks anywhere except out of overflow did compression test on all cylinders all good and no oil in coolant and no coolant in oil but still overheats then cools?

radiator core could be plugged, cap on the coolant reservoir is not maintaining proper pressure. is water pump working properly!! I would flush system and see if this works, buy a good radiator flush at any auto parts place. you can flush the radiator by adding flush to coolant tank, then put a garden hose in tank and back flush it. as long as you have a new thermostat in, you do not need to take it out!! flush until the radiator is clear. when done add new coolant. I did this to mine when changing intake manifold gasket. and it does not over heat it is fine!! HOPE THIS HELPS YA OUT.

Why would the engine overheat on a 2003 pt cruiser the coolant is brown?

If the coolant is brown, it has broken down and needs replaced. You could also have a failed thermostat, plugged radiator, inoperative fans,...........
