When a car thermostat does not work properly can this make your car surge when you go to acclerate if heater is on full blast in a cold car?

How do you get air out a car that is slightly running hot in a Honda Accord?
roll down the windows and turn the heater on full blast. It pulls hot air from the engine bay. Also check to see if you have a coolant leak or if your thermostat isn't opening all the way. you can test your thermostat in a pot of boiling water, boil the water to what ever degree thermostat you have. You could also burp the cooling system.

How much propane will a 400000 BTU pool heater use?
Why does a 1999 venture temp gauge heat up and show low coolant when you turn on the heater - have replaced thermostat - coolant sensor - flushed air out of system and pressure checked it OK.?
What if your 2000grand marquis gives of only heat full blast no ac no matter what temp is set at?
What could be wrong with 1996 lumina it starts out blowing warm air then all of a sudden it blows cold air?
This era gm vehicle was famous for having clogged heater core problems. Part of the problem is the the 'dexcool' coolant used. It gels up in the heater core, and needs to be forced cleaned with a strong water spray. This is easily done by a mechanic. They will disconnect the inlet and outlet of the heater core, hook up a hose to the inlet or outlet, and blast away. The symptom you describe could also be a faulty Thermostat. Good luck!!

How do you wire a baseboard heater?
Wiring a baseboard is no different than wiring a plug or light. A simple picture in your mind is this. You have to imagine yourself an electron travelling from the panel along the red wire to the thermostat, thermostat to the heater, heater back to the panel. With that read on. I find making a sketch helpful sometimes if the possible connection become unruly. I will not go into electric panel connection since a licensed electrician should do that. Too much juice there for the faint of heart. a) The wire type is different (red jacket (red & black conductors) instead of basic white (black and white conductors)). b) The breaker in the panel is of the 240v variety (twice as thick as the normal 120v variety). b) Most heating "circuits" are of the 20A variety. What that means is that the 20A breaker, combined with 240V, will allow 4800w (20A x 240v) peak. Rule of thumb is to use 80-85% of allowable wattage. So, that means you can feed up to 4000w of baseboards on 1 20A circuit. This will avoid a breaker jump if they fire full-blast at the same time. This scenario appaers in cottages most often. You are away, come up for the weekend and crank them all up at the same time. Go watch the meter when you do this. You can cut wood at the speed it spins. c) You will have a black, a red, bare ground wire entering the baseboard. Red goes to red, black goes to black, bare copper to frame (usally there is a green colored screw). That's your ground. VERY IMPORTANT to ground the unit. 240v kills real quick. BEFORE YOU MAKE THE CONNECTIONS READ FURTHER FOR THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION Here is where the fun starts: a) If you have a baseboard thermostat, then follow instructions in the thermostat package (which there usually is). The source wiring is as described above. b) If you choose to install a wall mounted thermostat, its a little different for 2 reasons. - If the source wire from the panel comes to the thermostat, then on to the heater you need to wire as follows: [AT THE WALL THERMOSTAT] The black wires from the source and one to the heater are wired together. You are now left with a red from each wire. You wire the thermostats wires to each of the red wires. Bare wires together & to box [AT THE BASEBOARD] ]The wiring at the baseboard is as described above (red to one side, black to the other side, bare to the casing) - If the wire from the electrical panel and the wire from thermostat meet at the heater, different scenario. [AT THE WALL THERMOSTAT] The Thermostat wires are wired to the red & black, at the thermosat. [AT THE BASEBOARD] At the heater connect the reds from the thermostat and source together. Connect the remaining blacks to either side of the basebaord. The bare wires are connected together & to the baseboard casing.
