DOES THE GAUGE CYCLE QUICKLY OR SLOWLY IF IT'S SLOW THAT IS NORMAL AS THE COOLING FAN CYCLE ON AT 220 -225 AND OFF AT 190
I had the same problem and it eventually let to a blow head gasket. The solution is to change the air filters that are in a compartment inside of your dash. I know this sound silly but open your glove compartment and there is a place on the back that opens up. Do this and you will find 2 filters inside and if they are anything like mine they will be full of pine needles and leaves and all kind of other debree. Now my temperature hand does not hardly move even when idled (It used to get in the red at a drive thru) and my air freezes me at 1. Hope this helps.
How did you change the thermostat?
I had this problem on a 2001 Ford Fiesta. I ended up having to get the temparature gauge sender unit replaced.
The thermostat on a 2004 Chevy Venture is changed by draining the radiator, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the thermostat housing. The old thermostat and gasket can then be removed and replaced.
water pump. thermostat.
a new heater core
Have you replaced the thermostat?
This question is not complete. . Need to know if you've replaced radiator, thermostat, hoses etc. Are you asking this question *after* yo checked the thermostat, changed, added or drained the system?
If you personally changed it, I would guess theres some air bubbles blocking the hoses.
MY CAR WAS DOING THE SAME THING NO HOT AIR COMING OUT OF THE HEATER I CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT. IT WASNT THE THERMOSTAT. I GOT TO CHECKING AND THE SEAL IN THE WATER PUMP WAS BAD. I REPLACED THE WATER PUMP AND IT WORKS FINE NOW.
sounds like a bad thermostat even though it is replaced
either your low on anti-freeze or the thermostat is broken. i just changed my thermostat today and i cost $11 so it won't hurt to get it replaced even if your not sure its broken.
i am have the same problem i change the thermostat also and that never worked took it in and they told me the cylinder head gasket need to be replaced so i did that and still didn't work now there saying that the head is cracked so after i get this done i will let you know if that was the problem.to do this it is going to costly i am in to it for about $2500.
have you changed the battery in the thermostat?
I suspect that either your thermostat is plugged with debris from the radiator change or that the thermostat was replaced backwards. The spring side should be towards the block.
If it is leaking coolant. And you changed the thermostat. I would then move to this section. Flush the radiator and the heater core. This can be done at a certified shop with a reliable mechanic.
You may have the thermostat in backwards. The spring side of the thermostat faces into the engine.
Check the wiring for a short it has to be getting power from somewhere. Check swiches as well and remember that even new parts can be bad. you will need a multimeter for this task. I had the same problem with my intrepid. it was gone after i changed the thermostat, use a Mopar thermostat, these cars are designed for 196 degrees.
Sounds like thermostat is not opening and needs replacing
Check the Blender door... Also check the temp knobs they make be broken.
Test gauge function with a mechanical gauge to get actual engine temp.
im having the same problem with my 1994 I've replaced the heater core,thermostat,radiator,i checked the coolant, and it's not over heating or nothing and still no heat lol
It could be you thermostat Have you have already checked oil level, and/ot changed oil recently Exaust restrictions can cause overheating
Hi there, if you have flushed any engine and have changed thermostate there are only two options that are left; (providing that there are no leaks) 1. the thermostat is faulty / 2. your water pump is broken and needs to be replaced
sounds like ball joints
