Broken thermostat. Common Chrysler problem. Replace the thermostat.
1. Celsius and Kelvin scale are used for all low & high temperature readings. 2.Fahrenheit is mostly used for low temperatures in clinical thermometers or a little lower or higher temperature readings
One of these things is the cause. Thermostat stuck open, replace it. Heater core stopped up, backflush the hearter core, and service the cooling system. Heater temperature control valve defective, replace it.
NO is the answer. But ponder this. The thermostat works because as the temperature in its base gets hotter it opens and allows hot water to move into the radiator where it cools and goes back to the engine. Transfer of heat and all. But if there is a bad or defective water pump then the hot water does not get there to open the valve and the engine over heats. Too little water can also do the same thing. Is there a problem you are having specficially?
It's in the thermostat housing between the actual thermostat and heater hose. Has a little insulated wire coming out of it.
Thermostat stuck open, heater core clogged, or the heater temperture control vlalve is defective.
If you're talking about an automotive thermostat and an automotive heater , then you should go with whatever temperature range thermostat the manufacturer originally specified . If you live in an unusually cold climate , you can go up a little on the thermostat heat range during the cold weather .
The varying temperatures found within the summer and winter seasons will have you adjusting the thermostat multiple times through the day. There may be, however, more money being spent in the heating and cooling of your house then actually needed. This extra cost may be caused by inaccurate readings coming off of your thermostat due to bad calibrations. Here are a few steps that can be run through to check and modify the calibrations of your home thermostat. •The first step would be to head down to the local hardware store or drug store to purchase a glass thermometer that uses mercury for readings. This thermometer will be set as close as possible to the thermostat using some sort of adhesive, such as tape or glue. •Once the thermometer has been in place for a few days to adapt to the air and temperature of the home, compare the readings on the thermometer with the readings of the thermostat at one hour intervals. If the temperatures are off by more than five degrees, it may be necessary to re-calibrate your thermostat. •Remove the cover of the thermostat and clean the area using an air cleaner normally used for keyboards and computer equipment. Once that dirt has been properly removed, use a paper towel that is a little damp to clean all of the components within the device. •The next step would be to un-screw the screws holding the thermostat to the wall and then removing it completely from where it is currently housed. There will be wires coming from the wall in a very small opening. The readings being wrong may be caused by the opening being larger than needed and causing air to effect the readings. This area around the wires can be plugged accordingly using a caulking compound and a painter’s stick. •The thermostat can then be reattached with the screws and adjusted so that everything is perfectly straight up and down on the wall. Once the cover has been reattached, the same procedures as before with the glass thermometer should be followed to obtain an accurate reading. •If the readings are still not up to standard, a new thermostat would have to be purchased and installed within your home.
It's dependant on what you want. If you live in a hotter climate, select a lower temperature thermostat; that causes the thermostat to open sooner, keeping the engine a little cooler... hopefully. If you live in a climate that is either normally cooler or seasonably cooler, a hotter thermostat can help the heater work better. A hotter thermostat has been demonstrated to be SLIGHTLY (almost insignificantly) at helping the engine run more efficietly.
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.
Thermostat tempratures are more a function of the local temperature average. If you live in an area that doesn't get much above 100 degrees and gets very cold during the winters such that you need your heater to work well, I'd use a 195 degree thermostat. If you seldom need the heater, you can get by with a 185 degree thermostat. In either case, if the engine runs a little warmer but still within the normal range, it will perform a little more efficiently and give just a little better fuel economy. I almost ALWAYS use a 195 but then I always keep my radiators clean.
There are multiple reasons for that. First of all the thermostat must installed in the proper way. There is a valve which must at it's maximum vertical position. Also if you have bought an aftermarket part you might made a mistake. It's because aftermarket parts a little higher opening temperature. You have two choices: first one is to buy the thermostat from Toyota; second is to but so called "low temperature thermostat" which opens before required temperature is reached. If you live in a cold state you need to buy OEM part because low temperature thermostat effectively decreases temperature of the heating system.
A low-temperature thermostat will not prevent overheating so much as delay just a little bit. It will also cause poor fuel economy and with most electronically controlled FI systems, it will cause fuel control errors. If the engine is overheating with a properly functioning 190 degree thermostat, a 180 degree thermostat shouldn't make that much of a difference. Make sure the existing thermostat is working properly, make sure the radiator isn't blocked or partially blocked, and that the cooling fan and water pump are working. A computerized car needs to have the thermo specs call for. Changing the engine temp can alter the comp readings which can cause bad running, high fuel usage and costly repairs later on down the road.
195 degree is were your thermostat will open.which in hot weather causes cars to run a little hot.recommend use a alternate thermostat at 180 degree.helps run engine cooler and helps with cooler transmission.hope this helps
It is normal for a temperature gauge to go up a little bit until the thermostat opens up and the cooling fan comes on. As long as it is not going out of the normal temperature range it is fine.
The thermostat is probably stuck in the open position.
Tough to narrow it down with such little detail, but it sound like your car's thermostat may be malfunctioning and not controlling the temperature correctly.
If the thermostat is exposed but it just won't come out, it might just be stuck with a little gasket sealer. If that's the case, you might need to 'persuade' the thermostat a little.
the thermostat is located on the intake manifold @ the end of the upper radiator hose.there is a little housing there with two bolts ,and thermostat is in it!
The cooling machine in a fridge doesn't run the whole time. The thermostat turns the cooling machine on when the temperature is just a tad over the target temperature, then it will run until the temperature is a little below the target temperature. Then the cooling machine switches off, the temperature will slowly creep up above the threshold, and the machine will start again.
It could have to much or to little water.
Too much extra heat, the oceans's absorb it because of the energy required to heat water by the same amount of temperature. Too little heat, and the opposite happens.
The temperature has little to do with it.
The thermostat AND HOUSING will cost about $15 at O'reilly auto parts, and may cost a little more or less at other auto parts retailers.Note that the Saturn thermostat is cast into the thermostat housing, so it's a little different than other vehicles that you may have encountered.Labor to replace the thermostat may vary, depending on the shop and local rates.
the cell could have to much water, or have to little
