Be careful there is a temperature coolant switch mounted next to the thermostat housing. I thought this was the sensor and replaced it by mistake. There is another sensor.


How know if you need to change your thermostat on a 1993 Honda Accord?

If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing. As the water pump should be replaced at the same time as the cam belt every 90,000 miles, you should also replace the thermostat and coolant.If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing.

My temp gaugebmw 318 e46 rises for no reason can anyone help already replaced the thermo sensor?

Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat. A sticking thermostat can cause temperature swings and potentially overheat the engine. BTW, BMW engines tend to have serious problems when they overheat. Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.


1993 roadmaster overheats and then cools down?

I would guess that the thermostat is not opening at the proper temperature. Once it does open proper circulation brings it down to the correct operating temperature. I think it should be replaced.

If the temperature gauge is reading below normal operating temp after driving a little while it may be that your thermostat is stuck open. I replaced my thermostat and it fixed mine.


Why does a ford temp overheat when you first start it?

Most of the time it is because the thermostat has gone bad and is not opening at the proper temperature. Cure: replace thermostat. If the thermostat has been replaced, flush the radiator. Buildup of residue in the bottom of the radiato0r will cause overheating, but it is maintained over heating, not temporary.


How can you tell which component is badthermastat or relay switch for a 1992 ford escort lx?

The thermostat or the fan relay for the radiator fan. If the temperature gauge shows the engine to be hot the fan should be on. If the fan isn't on you can check it by removing the electrical connection to the temperature sensor. If the fan is all right it will come on by default when the wiring connector is removed. Usually it is the thermostat which needs to be replaced when the engine is overheating. If the top hose going to the radiator isn't hot when the temperature gauge shows the engine to be hot the thermostat is stuck shut and should be replaced.


How can you tell if thermostat on 95 ford escort bad?

If the engine is taking a long time to warm up or the gauge registers low heat the thermostat probably is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the engine runs hot check the temperature of the upper radiator hose. If it's not hot the thermostat is stuck closed and should be replaced. If the upper hose is hot it means the thermostat is open and working. Cooling problem could be restricted radiator.

If the thermostat has failed it will need replaced.


Where is the thermostat located on a Toyota Camry?
