If thermostat does not open - Vehicle will overheat in a short time - no heat If thermostat does no close - vehicle will not get to normal operating temperature - no heat

When a thermostat goes bad in a vehicle, it can make your car overheat. It can also make it t where you do not have any heat inside your car.


You can detect a bad transmission using a diagnostic computer provided by the car's manufacturer or the car dealer. You can also detect this problem when the car fails to shift correctly or does not shift into a gear at all.


Yes a bad thermostat would cause overheating in any car. A thermostat regulates the temperature.


Car overheats, your heat in your car stops working


low or no coolant, or a bad thermostat.


when the car overheats or you have poor heat coming out of the heater.


When the car is hot, squeeze the upper radiator hose. If it feels soft, then the thermostat is not opening and therefore bad. If you squeeze the hose and its hard to squeeze, then it is pressurized and the thermostat is open. That is one way to check if the thermostat is stuck closed. If the thermostat is stuck open, then in cold conditions the car will take a long time to produce hot air from the heater.


A bad thermostat, or in rare cases, a bad water pump.


Stuck thermostat or bad water pump or bad heater core or clogged radiator.


Not usually. But it will cause it to overheat. What kind of car?


If stuck open the car will run cold. If stuck closed the car will run hot.


I had a VW Jetta that had a problem with overheating. It ended up being the thermostat had gone bad so the fan never "kicked on." A car can over heat if there isnt enough antifreeze in the radiator or a bad thermostat or if your fan isnt working properly or is bad


is car thermostat necessary in a tropicalize car?


By itself, the thermostat would have to be stuck closed causing a severe overheat condition to cause a loss of power.


MY CAR WAS DOING THE SAME THING NO HOT AIR COMING OUT OF THE HEATER I CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT. IT WASNT THE THERMOSTAT. I GOT TO CHECKING AND THE SEAL IN THE WATER PUMP WAS BAD. I REPLACED THE WATER PUMP AND IT WORKS FINE NOW.


There could be many reasons. Not enough coolant or bad flow, faulty thermostat, low oil. If the coolant freezes then it will overheat. If your car continues to overheat then you should have the coolant flushed and thermostat replaced.


Car overheats or can't reached the normal temperature.


problem with timing belt 0r car is overheating check thermostat....bad gas /water in gas



bad pcm, bad thermostat, bad starter, all sorts of problems it could be. what are the symptoms, without them, you can be helped.


Yes, and it can also make your car to over heat


It most likely means that your thermostat has gone bad. The engine of your car is running too cold and you need to get a new thermostat installed.

You will know of your thermostat is going out when your car overheats, then turn on your heater really hot on full blast, then the temp will instantly drop. This is a sign of a thermostat gone bad.
