What would cause the water in overflow reservoir not to return to radiator when engine is cold 1985 Honda accord lx runs hot how do I replace thermostat?
Asked in American Cars, Antifreeze and Engine Coolant, Heater Cores and Blower Fans, Ford Explorer XLT
Thermostat stuck will it cause antifreeze to come out the overflow hose of the heater core?
The heater core has no overflow hose. Cooling system is a closed loop system and the only overflow hose is the one going from the radiator cap to the reservoir. A thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, bleed air from the system. You may also need to replace the radiator cap. Be sure and replace these parts with OEM parts. The heater core has no overflow hose.

What does it mean when gage inside reads car is hot yet antifreeze is not going down in reservoir or radiator on 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme?
It sounds like you may need to replace your thermostat. Even though you have enough coolant in the radiator and overflow reservoir the coolant may not be circulating through the system because the thermostat is not opening. When the coolant can't flow through the engine and radiator it will get very hot and stay very hot. This is usually an inexpensive and fairly easy fix, just purchase a new thermostat and install it or have a mechanic do it for you.

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1993 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?
my 1993 Toyota Camry radiator had a hole in it it was overheating. I replaced the radiator. The car is still overheating where is the thermostat located. First, drain your coolant from the radiator. Find your lower radiator hose and follow it to the metal housing. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 nuts with a 10mm wrench. Remove the thermostat and replace with new one and new gasket. Re-install and re-fill your radiator with new coolant. Drive the car with heater running. Allow the engine to cool and top off the radiator. Add coolant to the reservoir to halfway between Full and Low.
