Oil and Oil Filters
Would the thermostat or O2 sensor cause an engine to run rich if there is fuel in the oil?
If fuel is in the oil then you may have a head gasket or a piston sleeve is crack to rule this do a compression test and check for cracks and leaks on the outside of the car or truck.
Asked in Thermostats, Overheating (Engines)
Why is engine overheating with new thermostat and engine temp sensor but when you take out new thermostat it does not overheat?
Could the temp coolant sensor cause the truck to run cold?
Asked in Check Engine Light
Would a bad thermostat cause check engine light to come on in a 2007 crown vic?
What would cause the engine not to reach normal operating temperature?
Answer no thermostat but only temporarily. A thermostat functions to regulate the flow of water between the engine and radiator. On an average outside temperature day (75 degrees), "no thermostat" would result in (1) the engine not reaching operating temperature in the normal engine warm up cycle time and (2) much later in the cycle the engine would overheat caused by the water not remaining in the radiator long enough to cool down. More extreme outside temperatures would impact the previous results. No thermostat or a defective thermostat that is stuck open. Also could be a deffective coolant temprature sensor. Or air bubble aroune the sensor on some cars.

Will a bad thermostat temp sensor cause a 1997 Plymouth grand voyager to overheat?
Your 2002 Bonneville runs steady at 200 degrees is that normal?
this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor. this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor.

What can cause the thermostat housing to crack or leak oil?
What would cause the Check Engine light to come on and the Temp gage to never reach normal range?
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.
