96 Honda Accord-chugs while running Thermostat has been changed after overheating Wassup?
Run a compression test to see if overheating has damaged the engine. All cylinders should have somewhere near 100PSI compression, but whatever it is, all should have similar compression. If any are significantly different, you've probably warped the head resulting in a damaged headgasket. That's the most common problem that is caused by overheating. If you don't have one or more cylinders with low compression, just try a computer diagnostic scan to see what kind of diagnostic codes have been stored. If you don't have low compression, the computer should be able to tell you what's wrong. God luck.
Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.
When 1990 Honda is running cooling fan does not come on but comes on when shut off thermostat and temperature switch changed?
Changed thermostat and new radiator on Toyota landcruiser and is still overheating what could the problem be?
It may be your water pump. If the coolant isn't moving, and passing thru the heater core to provide heat, and your engine is running hot, then the coolant is just sitting in the block not being circulated and overheating. The thermostat can be wide open allowing flow but if there is none, then changign it out doesn't do a thing for your car's heating/cooling
Why is my fiat multipla saying its overheating when the fan is running radiator is cold and ive had the thermostat changed?
The thermostat determines when the engine is hot and switches the fans on and off. You know it is working because the fans run. You need to get the water pump replaced, because the coolant is not circulating (that is why the radiator stays cold even though the engine is overheating). Because this requires the cambelt ("timing belt") to be removed and then put back in the correct position afterwards, this is not a simple…
My 1991 acura legEnd is running hot. I canged the thermostat it has a new water pump the fans are working I DONT HAVE A LEAK ANYWHERE but you dont know whats wrong?
If it is running hot then you need to service the cooling system. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, check the operation of the water pump, see if the cooling fan is operating properly, and make sure the belts are tight and not slipping. Another possibility is a blown head gasket. Removing the thermostat is not the answer to an overheating problem.
Breaker trips after running pool motor about 8 hours the timer was changed the receptacle was changed but you noticed a little bit of rust on the plug to the pool motor should that be changed?
2004 Monte Carlo running rough hot Change Thermostat Came up all of a sudden This morning it was hesitating and rumbling when I tried to leave my house Parked it?
If you changed the thermostat you may have corrected that overheating problem but in turn caused another. By draining the fluid, you probably have caused an air pocket. Your car has a plastic filler tank with a screw on lid.On the new cars , after draining the cooling system or even part of it, you have to put a vacume on the system which sucks out the air then sucks in the fluid. Otherwise you…
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…
94 Toyota truck with 22r 4 cylinder had the muffler changed today and they said it was running rich it seems as it is running sluggish with the accelerator half way down could it be bad injector?
What would cause a 1998 Dodge Ram Van 1500 to overheat on the highway only and cool down when going slower?
could be a bad radiator, or not enough flow to radiator Addendum I had the exact same problem and it turned out to be a plugged up radiator. I also had this problem, so hose flushed the radiator, and the problem still persisted. Turned out that the thermostat was sticking; not opening fully. I put another one in, and it's running cool now. Change your thermostat. They need to be changed anyway, so do it…
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…
An engine can overheat from several reasons. A faulty thermostat is the most common cause, provided that there is nothing else wrong. A plugged radiator or a faulty water pump can also cause the problem. Once an engine has overheated the head will often warp causing the coolant to "blow out" of the cooling system and making it impossible to keep running without overheating. Damaged hoses or other leaks can cause overheating as well.
How do you diagnose an overheating problem in a 1998 cadillac deville i was driving on highway with air going the temp shot up to 260 and car shut off.?
well there no need to diagnose overheating, 260 is overheating big time. U have to find out why its overheating. Could be low coolant, a stuck thermostat, a clogged dirty coolant system, bad fan clutch, or if u have electric fan make sure they are coming on. if the fans don't come on, could be a fuse, the fan motor, a temp sensor, or a relay. With the ac on the fans should be running…
The hoses and thermostat are changed and the radiator is less than a year old. Why is the car still running hot?
If the engine is running hot, then changing the thermostat to a lower degree is not the answer. Use the exact same temperature thermostat that came from the factory. Now find the real cause of the overheating. Possibly the thermostat was partially stuck closed, or the radiator is clogged, water pump, blown head gasket, fan not working, etc. Do a complete service of the cooling system and find the problem.
its a 96 caprice already changed the thermostate fans are working Do you have an obvious leak,making the engine short of coolant? If no obvious leaks,the first place to look is the thermostat,these frequently fail shut,so restricting the coolant flow. You don't say what sort of car it is,or if this happens only in traffic (radiator fan not running) or just driving along,thermostat,blocked radiator,cylinder head gasket. Modern cars must have good quality antifreeze mixed to…
You have got a 190 degree thermostat in your car if you put a 180 degree thermostat in will it run cooler?
A low-temperature thermostat will not prevent overheating so much as delay just a little bit. It will also cause poor fuel economy and with most electronically controlled FI systems, it will cause fuel control errors. If the engine is overheating with a properly functioning 190 degree thermostat, a 180 degree thermostat shouldn't make that much of a difference. Make sure the existing thermostat is working properly, make sure the radiator isn't blocked or partially blocked…
Why does the a 2003 Honda civic ex continue to overheat after replacing a thermostat water pump and radiator cap?
For a 2.4 litre engine, where the pressure cap is that is the thermostat housing..if you try to remove the pressure cap (in cold temperature only) you will see the thermostat..A damaged thermostat can be diagnosed when an engine running is at above normal temperature by squeezing the radiator hose connected to the thermostat housing..if there is no coolant running in it the thermostat is close then replace it.
Why is a 1999 Plymouth breeze with a new radiator thermostat water pump and serpentine belt still overheating?
You Installed (1) New Radiator (2) New Thermostat (3) New Water Pump (4) New Belt Car Is Still Running Hot/ Did You Install The Thermostat Correctly ? If You Did Very Little Is Left To Cause Problem. Your Car Shouls Have A 2.0 Engine. Is The Fan Running When The Car Heats Up, If Not This Could Be The Problem. Check These Things And Make Sure They Are OK. Hope This Helps. Also Are You…
You have a99 cadillad deville running hot you have changed the water pump the thermostat and the radiator still it says check coolant level?
Answer I am gonna save alot of people alot of money. You see, on these engines, whenever you replace anything that has to do with the cooling system, being the radiator, pump, hoses, thermostat, etc, the engine will trap air. first hand experience. Dont worry don't sell your jeep like many many people have done and are doing in eBay very cheap. I know this is going to sound dumb and I am pretty sure…
generally, water pumps leak when defective but still pump water. could be thermostat, plugged radiator, loose belt, low coolant answer if pump is not leaking, get engine to running temp and remove radiator cap look in to see if water is circulating if water is circulating it is not the pump i would change thrmostat then check radiator cap
If the car is running OK, not overheating or anything like that, I'd say that either you have a faulty heat control, or you need a new thermostat. Checking the control will mean digging into the dashboard to see what has failed. Changing the thermostat isn't a terrible job. You might, however, pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car at your local big box parts store. They are remarkably helpful!
Can running without a thermostat cause overheating I was told that if the water circulates too fast it will not cool properly Is this possible and how?
Running your engine without a thermostat will cause it to run hot. An engine will run cooler initially without a thermostat. After that IT WILL NOT! Why you ask? Again, physics. An engine running without the restriction of the thermostat in the system (remember, even when it's wide open there's still some restriction in the system caused by the thermostat's small opening) will not keep the coolant in the radiator long enough for the radiator…
