1 Start off with the engine cool, not run for an hour or so. 2 Remove the radiator cap.3 Fill the radiator and/or recovery bottle. the bottle will have a fill line, and fill the radiator until coolant reaches the bottom of the hole for the cap.4 start the engine and let it idle.5 Watch the bottle and fill cap hole for bubbles.6 If it bubbles, let the motor run. If the coolant level drops, slowly add more.7 Watch until the bubbles stop, then shut the motor off, make sure the level is right, and re-cap.

this should burp the system of any trapped air. good luck

PS sometimes this can get messy, espesially if you spill coolant, because the fan can make a nice coolant fog. not usually a problem though.

How do you hook up thermostat wiring?

Thermostat wiring can be hooked up by following the colors of the wires. Each thermostat comes with color coded wires that are the same colors as the thermostat already in place in the home. Hook each wire to its colored wire.

What is Thermostat polymer?

I know of nothing called a "thermostat polymer".Perhaps you meant "thermoset plastic", which undergoes polymerization and sets when heated.The other type is "thermoplastic" which is already polymerized and hard, but softens when heated.


Why would a 92 Eclipse push water back through the thermostat housing and overheat?

The thermostat is most likely stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced. The closed thermostat does not allow the coolant to circulate through the radiator, thus overheating the engine. The reason for water being pushed through the thermostat housing is because the water pump is spinning and there is no place for the coolant to go, therefore, it is leaking out through the housing gasket which is probably already blown (need to replace it when you replace the thermostat.

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1993 Saturn?

The thermostat is located right on the front of the engine block. Its not a normal thermostat like you see in most vehicles. It is accually the flange that the lower radiator hose slips on to. Drain your engine coolant, remove the clamp on the lower radiator hose going to to the motor. remove the two 10mm bolts from the radiator hose flange to the motor, and the entire assembly will come out. when you purchase a new thermostat, it will come already mounted in a new housing. Replace the gasket, place the new thermostat in the motor, and reinstall the bolts.

My temp gaugebmw 318 e46 rises for no reason can anyone help already replaced the thermo sensor?

Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat. A sticking thermostat can cause temperature swings and potentially overheat the engine. BTW, BMW engines tend to have serious problems when they overheat. Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.


Can you use a double pole thermostat to replace a single pole thermostat?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.A double pole thermostat is a line thermostat and not to be confused with a low voltage stat. When the heating load has 240 volts for a supply voltage, both lines from the distribution panel are supposed to disconnect when the thermostat reaches the set point temperature. A single pole thermostat is only used on a 120 volt heater an the return leg from the heater is a neutral wire.A two pole thermostat can be used on a 120 volt circuit but a single pole thermostat should not be used on a 240 volt circuit. The reason being is that on a 240 volt circuit using a single pole thermostat, one "hot" leg doesn't get isolated from the heater and is always "hot" to ground. This is a shock hazard if you are working on the heater and depending on the thermostat as a disconnect from the distribution voltage.Before you do any work yourself,on electrical circuits, equipment or appliancesalways use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 VW Jetta?

their is no thermostat in a 1998 vw jetta 2.0 , i know, i already went to the dealer.... There is a thermostat, the dealer is wrong. There is a housing at the end of the bottom radiator hose opposite the radiator. To access this, you must remove the power steering pump and its bracket. Then the housing, attached to the lower radiator hose is bolted to the lower part of the front of the engine, contains the thermostat. It is a 195 degree from the factory. A Duralast (pn 15379)that has a built-in bleeder, is a good one to pick up for about $15 at most parts houses.


What could be wrong with the heater in 2000 Dodge stratus that blows cool air you already replaced the thermostat?

Why would the radiator fan continue to run after the engine stops after the thermostat was replaced on a 2002 Nissan Altima?

Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.


If you already replaced the radiator fan but it is not switching on does that mean the thermostat is the next place to look?

if your thermostat was bad your engine will over heat but it has nothing to do with the fan,fans are driven by a diffrent mechanism. try checking your thermostatic switch/ heat sensitive switch or sensor, located somewhere in the cooling system(radiator,engine block or thermostat housing) which is the one that tells the fan when to come on.(only electric fans)it may be faulty wiring
