Hi there, if you have flushed any engine and have changed thermostate there are only two options that are left; (providing that there are no leaks) 1. the thermostat is faulty / 2. your water pump is broken and needs to be replaced

flush the system and change thermostat,this should fix problem. I flushed mine and i changed coolant and thermostat,it is now fine.

With car cold look at the coolant in plastic reservoir. If it looks contaminated, it may be a sign of intake or headgasket issues.Check out your fan system.You may want to check your water pump and thermostat as well.The radiator and/or cooling system may need to be flushed out.

Your heater core could be plugged. I've had it happen to a 98 and an 01 S10 pickup. I flushed the core both directions and it heats like crazy now.

Coolant at proper level? System air bound and needs to be purged? Water pump not circulating coolant? Defective thermostat? Collapsed radiator hose?

Answerwell it has a thermostat which heats the teflon sheet.

low or no coolant, or a bad thermostat.

Many times after a Jeep cooling system is repaired, air bubbles trapped in the system will cause a overheat situation. If it is a 4.0l, with the engine cool remove the heater hose that is connected to the thermostat housing and fill the cooling system with the engine off. When coolant starts coming out of the engine side the system is almost as full as it gets.

if your car over heats alot then that is a pretty good sign. aslong as it isn't your water pump. but thermostat is a good place to start. if you replace the thermostat and it still over heats. (assuming that is why you are asking) then it could be the water pump.

Start with replacing the thermostat.

Look at the directions again and swap the wires you hooked up that are for the temp output, you have them switched

Perhaps a bad thermostat and/or a heater core

The purpose of a thermostat on a running heat pump is to be able to determine the temperature the pump is operating at. This is used for regulating the heats needed.

That which the system heats gets warm.

bad thermostat or bad heat gasket

I had no heat in my escort either. A new thermostat, cooling system flush, new heater core, another new thermostat, ect. but nothing worked. Still only slightly warm air from the vents. The thermostat housing has a thermostat bypass in it. This bypass is always circulating coolant through your radiator. I plugged mine off with a thermostat gasket and now my car heats and blows hot air with no complications. Good luck.

Low coolant level? Plugged or restricted radiator? System airbound? Could also be fan clutch assembly.

When the thermostat in your car fails it usually fails to open which in turn does not allow radiator water to pass through the engine and cool it, so the engine over heats.
