Yes, it could very well be your thermostat not working properly enabling the heat you seak. Or your heater core it's self could be worn out and needs replacing. But I would first pull out your thermostat and test it. If you don't know hoe to test it keep reading. You can test your thermostat by removing it from engine then placing it in boil ling water, watch it closly. the spring would have moved, if it didn't move make your water hotter. then try again. you will notice a gap started to appear in the middle of the thermostat. If it works it should open fairly wide. If it opens slightly or not at all, I suggest replacing it. Know as for your heater core, i am not to certain, but i noticed personally that when mine went, i would crank the heater and only steam or fog would come out. So i figured it was shot and replaced it problem solved. Hopefully this helps you solve or figure out your lack of heat situation. If you pinch off the top radiator hose and you get heat in the passenger compartment, it is probably a T-stat. If you feel the hose going into the heater core and feel the hose coming out of the heater core this will tell you if the heater core is plugged. They should both be fairly hot. If one is cold, it's plugged.

If you set pool heat pump at temperature above the temperature you want will the pool heat up quicker For example setting it at 100 when you want pool at 80 quick?

It works this way. Even if you could set the thermostat at 200 it will not heat the water any quicker. It sounds as if you have an undersized heater. A larger heater will heat the water faster if your system can upgrade to the larger size heater. Your house will not heat up any faster if you set the thermostat to maximum. It is the output capacity of the heater that determines how fast it will heat. What dictates heater size is: the size of the gas line. the length of the gas line run from the meter to the heater. the size of the meter. how many GPM the pump is producing. the GPM capacity of the filter. the size of the plumbing in you pool ~ 1.5"; 2"; 3" total gallons in the pool. are among a few. Just common sense here...... k

After changing out the radiator cap thermostat radiator hoses and cleaning the cooling system what could be the reason for a Ford bronco II to overheat?

Remove trapped air from the systemI had the same problem on my 1988 2.9L Bronco II. It seems that there was air in the cooling system somewhere! I paid a fellow in Chattanooga, TN $48 to bleed the system and the problem was resolved. That was three months ago and the fix has stuck. His solution also allowed the heater to generate hot air again, which was a good thing as it gets downright chilly here in eastern Tennessee during the winter. How air gets trapped in the system is beyond me, but there you are. Hope this helps.i think how you get air bubbles in your radiator is putting the fluid in too fast. if you poor it in slow that should fix the problem if it is just air bubbles.could be something as easy as retiming your trucki had this happen to me on a 85 bronco you have to burp the system by raising the front up as high as you can or if you put the flush and fill kit on the heater hose you can put the coolant in there and that solved the problem for me

Your 1999 dodge grand caravan is using coolant fast about every 3 days or so it is bone dry there are no visible leaks what may be the problem you have replaced the thermostat?

How does the van run? It could be the headgasket, if you smell a sweet smell from the exhaust then its the headgasket. If not check the Oil, if theres like, water and stuff in the oil then it could be the headgasket still. The thermostat wont make it lose cool unless theres leakage around the thermostat housing gasket.

How do you replace heater core on a 1998 f150 v8?

There is no short cut or fast way to do this. The dash has to come out to access the heater box and replace the core. So the steps in replacing the heater core are to disconnect the heater hoses, remove the dash, to access the heater core cover on the front of the heater case and replace the core. Reassembly is in the reverse order as disassembly. Fill the cooling system with new coolant, and burp the air form the cooling system. There is no short cut or fast way to do this.

Your 1993 Pontiac sunbird with a 2L 4 has been overheating you fixed all the leaks and replaced the radiator fan motorbut the fan still doesnt come on Im guessing this is most likely the radiato?

If you have any questions, pull both radiator hoses and run water into one end. If you can get water to flow as fast as the hose can send it, you probably don't have a blocked heater. Also check the thermostat. A stuck thermostat can cause an engine to overheat. An easy check on a thermostat is to drop it in a pan of water then bring the pan to boiling. The thermostat should open a little before the pan starts to boil

Is a programmable thermostat good to use with a heat pump system?

A programmable thermostat works fine with a heat pump. Just remember that a heat pump does not heat as fast as a furnace because of the lower BTU ratings so do not set the thermostat as far back as you normally would. Also make sure to buy a thermostat that has heat pump terminals.
