Asked in Ford Windstar, Chevy Blazer, Chevy Blazer S-10
Is it normal for a 2000 Chevy Blazer temp gauge to go to three quarters when driving in traffic even after the thermostat was replaced?
depends on what temperature thermostat was put in. come in different temperature ratings. Answer If you installed the correct OEM thermostat, and did not install it upside down, then no, this is not normal. You should flush the entire system, check the water pump for proper operation, clean the radiator external fins, check the operation of the electric cooling fan, (If Equipped), and make sure you bleed the system to remove any trapped air.

How know if you need to change your thermostat on a 1993 Honda Accord?
If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing. As the water pump should be replaced at the same time as the cam belt every 90,000 miles, you should also replace the thermostat and coolant.

What could be wrong with the heater in 2000 Dodge stratus that blows cool air you already replaced the thermostat?
My temp gaugebmw 318 e46 rises for no reason can anyone help already replaced the thermo sensor?
Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat. A sticking thermostat can cause temperature swings and potentially overheat the engine. BTW, BMW engines tend to have serious problems when they overheat. Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.

Asked in Ford Tempo, Thermostats, First Ladies
Why does a ford temp overheat when you first start it?
Most of the time it is because the thermostat has gone bad and is not opening at the proper temperature. Cure: replace thermostat. If the thermostat has been replaced, flush the radiator. Buildup of residue in the bottom of the radiato0r will cause overheating, but it is maintained over heating, not temporary.
Asked in Ford Escort LX
How can you tell which component is badthermastat or relay switch for a 1992 ford escort lx?
The thermostat or the fan relay for the radiator fan. If the temperature gauge shows the engine to be hot the fan should be on. If the fan isn't on you can check it by removing the electrical connection to the temperature sensor. If the fan is all right it will come on by default when the wiring connector is removed. Usually it is the thermostat which needs to be replaced when the engine is overheating. If the top hose going to the radiator isn't hot when the temperature gauge shows the engine to be hot the thermostat is stuck shut and should be replaced.
Asked in Ford Escort, Thermostats, Ford Escort LX
How can you tell if thermostat on 95 ford escort bad?
If the engine is taking a long time to warm up or the gauge registers low heat the thermostat probably is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the engine runs hot check the temperature of the upper radiator hose. If it's not hot the thermostat is stuck closed and should be replaced. If the upper hose is hot it means the thermostat is open and working. Cooling problem could be restricted radiator.
Asked in Radiators, Cadillac, Thermostats, Ford Escort ZX2
What should be done next to a 1996 Cadillac Seville on which the temperature gauge continuously rises but the radiator has been replaced?
If you haven't replaced the thermostat, now would be a good time. If that's not it, check the impellers on the water pump. The temperature gage is supposed to rise to around mid level. If you mean it is getting hot, then Replace the thermostat. Also check the operation of the cooling fan and the water pump. Another possibility is that the cooling system needs to be bled. There may be air trapped in the system. another thing we often see with this era northstar is blown head gaskets.
