you probably need head gaskets. recheck the coolant in the radiator when the engine is cold. if its low even though you just filled it when you replaced the thermostat, and you dont see any external leaks, i would strongly suspect head gaskets. its common on these. and sometimes no heat is the only symptom the driver notices!

Coolant not getting hot enough for thermostat to open?

Usually this is not the case. It looks like a bad thermostat, because no way the coolant is not getting hot, but a rusted up thermostat would not open for the coolant to circulate. If I were you I will change the thermostat first than check the water pump.

What is the labor time to fix a thermostat on a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer?

Hi. I replaced my thermostat twice - here is a word of caution: only use the thermostat from the Chevy dealership. I bought one from Autozone and it kept giving me the check engine light because the temp did not get high enough. I replaced it with the Chevy one and it worked perfectly from that point on - no more check engine light.As for the labor time, I'd suggest investing in a Chilton book that shows you how to do it. You have to remove the alternator in order to get to the thermostat (why did they put the thermostat on the bottom of the engine!?!?!) All in all it took me about 3 hours the first time and about 2 1/2 the second time - and I am just your average guy that doesn't mind getting his hands dirty in my garage.Hope that helps!

Where is the thermostat on a 2001 Audi allroad?

Being a 2001 Allroad, I'm assuming you have the 2.7TT engine. If so, the thermostat is located on the front of the engine block behind a black plastic plate. just left of the water-pump. Unfortunately, it is a very difficult part to get to, and it takes some special tools in order to replace it properly. If you've never replaced your water-pump and you're past 75,000 miles, your car is essentially a ticking time-bomb. You should look into getting it replaced along with the timing belt and thermostat.

Was Rachelle Lefevre replaced as Victoria in Eclipse?

Yes, she was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard. I personally don't know why, and there are conflicting stories, but here's what I've seen: she was replaced because she got another movie deal that overlapped with the shooting of eclipse she is thinking of taking legal action and getting paid the money for eclipse because she was still within her contract by getting another movie deal and also getting paid more because this has hurt her acting career

What might be wrong with an 88 pickup with a new 305 that blows out coils and has an intermittent stutter in the idle?

Got it! Repairman put a scanner on the engine and found the clutch fan wasn't disengaging and the thermostat was too cold. This, in addition to the old-style, single-wire O2 sensor being so slow, the truck was getting conflicting reports from the sensors. Installed a hotter thermostat, replaced the O2 sensor and replaced the clutch fan. We're rocking now!

Where is the thermostat on the car?

Generally, it will be at the engine side of the upper radiator hose, under a small aluminum housing with two bolts in it. If you have not replaced one before, I recommend getting a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car from an auto parts store or library.
