brilliant, the thermostat is backwards
Check your coolant levels and make sure it is up to level and decent looking...Coolant (in this case) should be a nice Lime green. Engine Thermostat is probably the most likely cause of overheating...It should be replaced if you haven't already.
Not sure if by your question you mean the thermostat opens slow and the engine overheats or if you mean the engine takes a long time to warm up. If the engine is overheating, more than likely the thermostat is stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced before engine damage is caused because of overheating. If the engine is taking a long time to warm up, the thermostat is probably stuck in the open position and has to be replaced so the engine can reach its normal operating temperature in a shorter time.
Need to know the year and engine size so I can help you. NEUTZ air lock? system blockage? is the thermostat installed correctly? 6.0 Engine Yes on the thermistat installed correctly
The thermostat on a 2004 Chevy Venture is changed by draining the radiator, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the thermostat housing. The old thermostat and gasket can then be removed and replaced.
The top radiator hose is above the thermostat. If the top radiator hose is hot, the thermostat is opening. The thermostat is not the problem. Perhaps the radiator is clogged up or the water pump is bad. Look elsewhere.
its either the water pump or thermostat take it to a shop if you can that pump is a nightmare to change
thermostat sticking closed then snapping open
I had mine replaced and the cost of the thermostat and housing was $48.67 without the cost of labor.
the thermostat will be under the THERMOSTAT HOUSING, which is where the TOP radiator hose fits on ie(radiator to thermostat housing) this keeps the engine at an OPTIMUM temperature BUT can be A cause of OVERHEATING IF malfunctioning
Overheating or engine does not get warm enough. Replace any suspect thermostat. You can test one, but as you have to remove it to do so, just replace it.
A couple possibilities are: low coolant level or bad water pump. just based on overheating and no heat, sounds like the thermostat is bad or it could be the water pump thermostat
Any GM engine only has 1 thermostat. On the 4 cyl, many people get confused as to its location. It is not in the upper radiator hose / housing on the engine. This looks like it should be ther, but it is not. It is actually on the back of the motor, under the exhaust manifold. Have had some people put a thermostat in the housing on the top that looks like it should have a thermostat. This caused overheating problems. TechJK ----------------------------------------------
had the same problem with a sibring,took to the garage,they replaced the thermostat and gasket and found a hairline crack in the thermostat housing they replaced the housing and everything was fine then
the thermostat should be on the upper raditor hose on the intake
The thermostat, on a 2005 Chevrolet trailblazer, can be replaced by first removing the water hose. Next, remove the three housing bolts. Take the thermostat out and replace with a new thermostat.
bad fan clutch, could lead to stuck thermostat, just had both replaced on my 2000 w/ no visible leaks, 5.3 1500, 170K miles $200.00 service
A 195 degree should be used.
The thermostat on a Chevy 2.2 engine should be located under the top hose inlet. The top hose as well as the inlet need to be removed to get to the thermostat.
I just replaced mine last summer. It is near the water pump, there's a pipe coming off the water pump and it curves down and has 2 bolts and it should be there. It took me a long time to find my thermostat.
follow the top radiator hose and it should lead u right to the thermostat housing. remove the housing and the thermostat is inside
180 degrees F
never needs to be replaced
