Why do you say the engine is not heating up? Is the engine temp gauge working? Are you sure? Is the car heater working? The engine has no choice but to heat up. Did you install the thermostat Right side up? They are sometimes marked. Good Luck! You have a Puzzle.You may have air in your system and or you need to clean your heater core. also check your rad cap to make sure that it holds the pressure correctly

AnswerMore than likely the themostat wasnt installed at all. Or is stuck to full open and you arnt in a very hot area of the country! I had this because i live in south Texas (super hot and had my thermostat go bad on way to work so on the side of the road i removed it (F150 4.2) completely ran great but would not get very warm to say the least when the smallest cold front came my truck wouldn't run! easy fix but i cracked a bolt in the block taking it off again and needless to say it cost me 200 bucks to get out LOL. take care and good luck

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 360 magnum 5.9L?

U UNbolt the Outlet---- (Gooseneck) where the Upper radiator hose connects 2 the Engine-- Clean the Gasket-or O-ring surface B 4 U install the NEW Thermostat-BE SURE 2 INSTALL the Thermostat the CORRECT way B cause some can B installed backwards & U will Toast the ENGINE due 2 OVERHEATING.I'd like to add that drilling a couple of SMALL holes (1/8" or 3/32") on the flat part of the thermostat (near where the valve will seat while closed) will allow air bubbles (which would otherwise be trapped inside the engine block when the thermostat is closed) to harmlessly flow into the radiator. This is helpful when re-filling the radiator tank.You will need to drain the antifreeze out of the radiator below the thermostat housing before you remove the thermostat housing or you will have antifreeze going everywhere.

How do you bleed air from the cooling system of a 95 ford explorer?

If it doesn't have a bleeder screw on top of thermostat housing that can be opened alowing some antifreeze to escape. (some do) I would loosen the upper radiator hose and run vehicle until thermostat opens and antifreeze starts coming out -- careful it will be hot. Or loosen one of the hoses going into the heater core and again let water flow for a couple of sseconds. T avoid this problem, when filling cooling system, do so slowly allowing air to escape during fill procedure.

Can you substitute solo almond paste for solo almond filling?

No. Almond Paste is a very thick paste made of almonds, sugar and some almond extract. Almond Filling is looser, more like cake frosting/filling. If you substitute, you'll not get the same results. There is more sugar in Filling, too, about 25% more and it will over-sweeten your recipes. Spend the extra money on something you'll probably only make once a year, like Christmas cookies. Recipes are pretty exacting, and replacing paste with filling will lead to a baking disaster.
