What should the thermostat temperature be on a 1995 Saturn?
My OEM thermostat is labeled 85 (Celsius), which is 185 degrees F. This car was originally purchased in Arizona. Now I see everywhere on discussion forums and such that the OEM temperature is 195 F (that is a little below the mid scale on an unmodified gauge). It won't harm the vehicle to run hotter, especially in colder climates, gas mileage will improve somewhat, but performance will worsen.
Why doesn't a 1995 ford explorer get to operating temperature therefore it does not blow warm air with the heater on?
On your 1995 Olds Aurora it runs too hot fan works new water pump coolant thermostat as well as a radiator flush how do you fix it?
1995 ford escort lx wagon temperature sensor replaced fan also replaced still runs hot could the thermostat be bad?
Yes the thermostat could be bad. This is one of the first things you should change when a vehicle gets hot. Thermostat replacement should be a maintainance issue. Should be changes at least every 3 years or 50000 miles. Thermostats can gum up and stick. You also need to look at replacing your water pump. The pump fins sometimes go bad.
Why does 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva temperature gauge swing rapidly from very hot to a normal temperature?
If the the temp gauge is swinging around oddly the sending unit might be bad. Otherwise i would replace the thermostat cheap part, sometimes a pain to change but definitely worth the effort. YOu can check the sending unit w/ a volt meter and just change the thermostat for good measure. Both should be located in a haynes/chiltons manual.
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…
