If you replaced the thermostat on a 1992 Toyota SR5 V6 4wd pickup because after the truck warmed up you were getting cold air but now it works sporadically do you need a water pump?

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!

The heater cor was replaced but it is still not getting warm

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.

If you personally changed it, I would guess theres some air bubbles blocking the hoses.

first of all, do you have the right thermostat? ie: winter, summer. if so i would get the radiator checked, it may be getting pluged.

It is possible. A more likely cause is the gas cap was replaced incorrectly or left off after getting gas

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!

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.

Somepeople thinks so but they will never be replaced.

Yes it can cause it to overheat but first check your thermostat. That would be the 1st cheapist thing to do before you did anything else. I got an 85 regal(overheating) and the thermostat or the heater core is the problem im getting them both replaced tomorrow and will let know of how it runs.

Which LDS Temple are you talking about? Recently, the floors in the Anchorage Alaska Temple and the Chicago Illinois Temple were replaced because of flooding. Otherwise, it could have just been remodeling because the old flooring was getting worn out.

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: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/31/movies/31arts-REPLACEDTWIL_BRF.html 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

thermostat first, then gasket then thermostat housing cover. I'm having trouble getting mine to seal properly. any help would be wonderful

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.

If the thermostat is stuck open, the radiator is able to cool the antifreeze faster than the engine can heat it.

Gas is not getting into the carburetor because no Saturn made ever had one.

It was different because there was no bloodshed involved; the monarchs fled and were replaced without anyone getting killed.

Your thermostat is getting stuck, replace it.

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!

This means that the has not reached the required temperature level within a specified amount of time after starting the engine. If you replaced the thermostat with a lower temperature one or did not dilute the anti freeze to a 50 50 mix, that could be the reason.

It's probably not getting heated coolant to the radiator. Check the heater control valve and the control on the dasboard.

User Avatar

It everything was done correctly plus the controls are working then you will have an air pocket in the cooling system and you must bleed the system out to remove it..........
