Is it really getting hot, or is the gauge reading a little high? Did you replace the thermostat with the same temp rating? Thermostats of the same rating can vary by 5%. Also, if you had an overheat, it could have fried the temp sensor (sending unit), which could cause the gauge to be way off. The important thing is if the thermostat is opening and closing to regulate the coolant temp. Hope this helps. --Also have your radiator checked for proper air/water flow. This is often last checked or even overlooked. If the car is running cooler on the freeway with AC off but is running hotter in city driving, it's more than likely your radiator has issues. Also, if you require a new radiator, be sure to have the system completely drained/flushed, and refilled with Prestone (or any) GREEN antifreeze, NOT Dex-Cool.
The heater cor was replaced but it is still not getting warm
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
You don't. The YFM225 uses an automatic chain tensioner that helps to take up the slack on the cam chain. If you are getting chain slap, then either the chain is stretched or the tensioner is not functioning correctly. In both cases, the parts should be replaced. You cannot repair a non-functioning auto tensioner, nor can you remove links from a stretched cam chain.
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.
Replace your a/c evaporator filter under dash. Liquid refrigerant is getting back to compressor causing belt to break.
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.
t guess is either the valves or the crank bearings are getting wore.
4.50grams the amount in a thermostat was getting $4.50
He was supposed to get replaced in new moon but didnt :P
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!
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.
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!
If the thermostat is stuck open, the radiator is able to cool the antifreeze faster than the engine can heat it.
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.
if the indicator light is not getting switched off or on
Your thermostat is getting stuck, replace it.
it's the middle pulley...good luck getting to it though..lol
It's probably not getting heated coolant to the radiator. Check the heater control valve and the control on the dasboard.
