New 305 on a pickup truck and temperature runs at 210 to 215 with a 180 thermostat all your components are new and working properly is this normal?
Asked in Home Electricity, Thermostats
How can you tell if thermostat is working properly?
Why does the water in your 1994 Chevy pickup only go up to 130 degrees when you have a 195 degree thermostat in it?
Asked in Thermostats
What temperature does the thermostat begin to open and what temperature is the thermostat fully open?
Asked in Cars & Vehicles
Your car is overheating but its not your thermostat or radiator?
How do you calibrate the thermostat on the wall not on the heater itself for in wall forced air heaters?
Does the thermostat affect gas mileage?
Asked in Heating AC and Engine Cooling
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 is the working temperature of automobile engine?
Asked in Honda Civic EX
Why would a Honda civic ex 95 overheat if you replaced the thermostat?
Asked in Ford Explorer
Why is the heater in my 1999 ford explorer blowing cool air?
96 Ford Taurus is overheating and heater does not work?
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 1997 Chevrolet Camero is overheating?
Asked in American Cars, Thermostats
Your ac is not working2000 chev venture does this mean you need a new thermostat?
Asked in Thermostats, Geo Prizm
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.
Why does my dodger grand caravan's heater take too long to heat up?
Asked in Thermostats
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.
