Many things can cause an engine to run hot, make sure that the cooling system is full, that there are no leaks, make sure the cooling fan is operating properly, make sure that the there is nothing blocking air circulation thru the radiator fins, check for corrosion inside the radiator causing blockage and reduced cooling.

Can the thermostat on my 1995 cutlass supreme be the reason my car is overheating without any engine or radiator leaks?

A thermostat that is stuck in the closed position is a very common cause of overheating. A new thermostat should be installed every time the coolant is changed.


When taking of a 1986 Honda accord thermostat what can you replace it with?

Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.


How can you tell wheather the radiator or the thermostat is not working because my car has a very serious problem with it overheating?

Take your thermostat out and put everything back together, run your car without a thermostat... If your car no longer overheats, replace your thermostat.


What else can you do to your 1991 Honda if it is still overheating by the time you go a mile if you have changed the radatior and the thermostat?

1) ONE THING YOU COULD TRY IS CHANGING THE RADIATOR CAP...IF IT'S BAD THE CAR WILL BOIL OVER AND APPEAR TO BE ALWAYS OVERHEATED WHEN ALL THAT'S REALLY WRONG IS THE LACK OF PROPER BACK PRESSURE DUE TO AN OLD/DEFECTIVE RADIATOR CAP. 2) IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU COULD TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OUT AND TRY DRIVING THE CAR WITHOUT IT IN AND SEE IF THE CAR RUNS LONGER BEFORE OVERHEATING...IF IT DOES THEN THE THERMOSTAT IS STICKING. THE THERMOSTAT COULD ALSO BE UPSIDE DOWN...IF IT IS IT WON'T WORK RIGHT. patricklaw1957@yahoo.com You might also check the timing.If it is retarded due to a bad timing chain or needing a tune up this will cause overheating.


Why is your van overheating?

Lack of coolant, cooling fan not working, thermostat bad, bad temp. sensor, fuse, relay for the fan, water pump, head gasket, cracked head or block. Without more information, it is impossible to point to anything in particular.

Well having no thermostat blow my engine?

It won't 'blow' your engine to run it without a thermostat. However, it could accelerate wear on the engine over the long term. Also, fuel economy and heater performance will generally deteriorate. Simply put, engines are designed to be run at a certain temperature. For this reason, it is always best to run an engine with the proper thermostat. If your engine is overheating, then the cause of the overheating should be found and addressed rather than trying a band-aid fix such as removing the thermostat.

Do cars need a thermostat?

Technically, yes they can run without a thermostat. (not without coolant, just no thermostat) However, several things will happen. First, the engine will be cold all the time which will make it use more gas. Also, your heater will not work. Another thing is that your engine will not produce as much power because it's cold. etc. note: if this is being done to fix a problem like overheating, it will only work if the problem is caused by a faulty thermostat.


Why is your 1993 Chevy Cavalier 4 cylinder overheating occasionally?

The thermostat may be sticking, the radiator might be clogged, the water pump could be shot, or it could simply be low on coolant. Without further information about the problem, i.e. how frequently it overheats, the conditions under which the overheating happens, I can't give you a definitive answer.

What is a thermostat jiggle pin?

The Jiggle pin allowes any trapped air behind the thermostat to pass through. Without this the engine could overheat. The thermostat uses engin coolant to melt a wax capsule and allow coolant to pass. The engin could be at operating temp and the thermostat would not open due to air being in contact with the capsule instead of the actual coolent. This would most likely lead to an overheating engin, and damage.


Why is your 2002 Chrysler sebring lxi 2.7 is overheating?

I had a similar issue one day, my friend mechanic advised that the thermostat had siezed, he removed the thermostat, cut the spring and re installed it, I have used it now for 4 months with no issues to date. Please check with a technician, as I reside on an Island that is constant 84 degrees and the engine does not really need a thermostat. As to update this, I have now used this car without the spring in the thermostat for nearly 2 years and without any issues, temp remains well below half way mark

Why is your car overheating without any leaks in any hoses?

Something is wrong internally with the cooling system. Could be a bad thermostat not opening and allowing the fluid to circulate a plug of some kind in the system or even a leaking head gasket.


Can you run a reducer rather than a thermostat in a '95 240sx?

if you are going to install anything other than a thermostat, then you are better off leaving nothing. the car will run find without a thermostat, in warm weather. it will still run without a thermostat in cold weather, but i do not recommend it because it will leave the valve open and the radiator fluid will be constantly flowing through the motor. what the thermostat does is block off the flow until the car reaches approx 170 degrees F. then once it reaches this temperature, the thermostat opens up allowing the fluid to flow, and thus cooling off the motor. so, without a thermostat it will just constantly flow, and will simply take longer to warm up. I've ran with without a therm. throughout winter without a problem, but you will have to let it run for 10-15 minutes until the temp. warms up. the thermostat is only a $12-$20 piece, so at that price, why not have one?


Why is a 1985 crx dx overheating?

An engine can overheat from several reasons. A faulty thermostat is the most common cause, provided that there is nothing else wrong. A plugged radiator or a faulty water pump can also cause the problem. Once an engine has overheated the head will often warp causing the coolant to "blow out" of the cooling system and making it impossible to keep running without overheating. Damaged hoses or other leaks can cause overheating as well.


Can accord operate without thermostat?

An Accord will run without a thermostat. But, it will not operate properly. The heat, fuel/air mixture, even the mileage depend on the thermostat keeping the engine in the correct temperature range.

Why your car over heat when standing still has no thermostat in it fine driving any wear but once still over heats is this the pump failing?

Your car overheating can be from many of factors. If it is not overheating while you are driving down the road it could possible be your electric fan has stopped working. Another possibility is that your fan clutch has stopped working on your manual fan. The main possible reason though is the fact you do not have a thermostat in it. Without the thermastat your coolant isnt slowing down enough in the radiator to cool off so that it can cool your engine.
