Why is your car temperature Rising while at an idle and then goes down when you are moving?

When your car is at idle there is no air flow to cool the radiator, but when your car moves the air flow through the radiator cools it down. I would suspect the radiator fan is not coming on when it should. If the fan is working properly the engine temperature should stay fairly constant assuming the thermostat is also working properly.

What happens when the thermostat blocks the flow of coolant into the engine?

Then coolant doesn't flow through the engine block, and your motor is allowed to build up heat. If your thermostat works properly, it'll open up when the specified temperature is set, and coolant will flow in. If it's not working properly, then the heat will continue to build until you either shut off your motor or you blow a head gasket.

Your ac is not working2000 chev venture does this mean you need a new thermostat?

No. If the A/C is not working there is a problem related to the A/C system. A thermostat is in the cooling system and if its not working properly the vehicle can overheat or not get warm enough to give you heat inside the vehicle.

How do you know if your 95 geo prizm needs a thermostat change?

Thermostat can stick open or closed. If sticks open, car will take longer to warm up because coolant is constantly flowing thru engine. If thermostat is stuck closed, engine will eventually overheat. In order for all emission systems to work properly, thermostat needs to be working. For 1995 GEO Prizm, if thermostat is working correctly, car should maintain proper operating temperature after is warmed up. If any doubt about thermostat, changev it every few years as is inexpensive and easy to replace.

How do you check if the engine thermostat is functioning?

If a thermostat is working, it should open at a specific temperature, which varies depending on the thermostat. Common temps are 195, 180 and 160. To check the thermostat, removed it from the engine, and place it in a pan of water with a thermometer. Heat the water to boiling and watch the thermostat. It should open before the water boils. Check the temperature at which it opens completely and see if that is satisfactory. Anotehr WA is to start the eingine and let it idle. Obviously, if the engine overheats there is a problem. It could be a thermostat that is stuck closed or something else. If the engine does not warm up, or does not maintain a good operating temperature, then the thermostat is stuck open. If after ten minutes or so, the upper radiator hose is hot to the touch, then the thermostat is probably working properly. Personally, I just change mine if there is any question if it is good or not. They are cheap. I often replace mine when I flush the cooling system, just like I change my cap and rotor every year.

Coolant temp sensor short form?

It tells the computer what the temperature of the engine coolant aid in fuel trim calculations, cold starts, and if the thermostat is working properly. It may also be used by other systems, like heating and air conditioning.
