    Is the thermostat on the left or right of the engine?

  • vijven Mar 18, 2009

    I think your car engine has pretty much run its life, you can drive it as long as you keep the radiator filled up with coolant,your check engine light will be still on since the coolant drips on a sensor when it leaks and dont expect your a/c to work. The problem with your engine is that the head is cracked at the top and the coolant is leaking out of it. There is no solution except to replace the engine. I had the same problem and i had taken it to toyota and they asked me to replace my motor and showed me where the coolant is escaping from. Good Luck with you next car.

The thermostat housing is located by grabbing the upper radiator hose, and following it back to the engine block.
The housing that the hose is connected to is the thermostat housing.
Changing the thermostat will fix your problem!

    The thermostat housing does not have a radiator cap on it. That is the radiator.

    You need to look on the other ent of the hose. Dome shaped with bolts holding it down on the engine block.

    Sorry, i was thinking the 4 banger....

    in the V-6 the thermostat is near the water pump in the housing close to the lower hose.



    Please rethink giving a FixYa rating :D

    looks like this....






    There is no gasket, it is an o-ring seal. Should come with the new thermostat.

Auto coolant hot temp light comes on and temp gauge goes up more when idling at a light


If temp gauge is going into the red on a 3.4 engine it must be shut down or head damage can happen within minutes. I have a Monte Carlo that was overheating. I changed everything, thermostat, water pump, belt tensioner, radiator, all with no result. It would start out okay on a cold start but then I would come to a red light and the temp would creep up. Higher and higher until it neared the red zone. The heat would run cold. Most of the time, as soon as it was about to touch the red it would start to drop, the heat would blow hot again and all seemed okay but not for long. This would get worse and worse until the red hot light came on and I found myself on the side of the thruway. This problem is a blown head gasket. I had no other obvious signs, no white smoke from the exhaust, no oil in the antifreeze. I even changed the intake gaskets. Head gasket issues are common on the 3.4 liter engines.

Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

There is a fan control module in the engine compartment that you could try replacing. Rather than replace the temp switch, you could try shorting it's connector terminals just to see if the switch is the problem.

2004 Dodge Intrepid heater problem


This sounds like your automatic climate control is starting to malfunction. Check to make sure your coolant is full, and temp is not fluctuating, and when your vehicle is warmed up, try using the low setting and feel for air temp. Is it warmer than if you turn it up? When at idle the vehicle is not producing heat the same as if you are driving, putting load on your engine and more air/fuel combustion means more heat, which is why you can feel heat while driving. Ideally you should feel heat as soon as the engine is warming up, getting hotter as it reaches peak temp of 190-210 degrees. You can try to make sure your water control valve is not blocked, and all electrical connections are secure. This will be located close to your firewall and connected to the coolant tubes that run into your firewall to your heater-core. Also use recirc (setting)to try to summon as much heat as possible, however ultimately, you may need to take you vehicle in for service. If it only warms when driving defrost will be an issue. Good luck.

1993 V6 camry engine over heats and check engine light comes on


The thermostat is found by following the top large radiator hose and following it to where it connect to the engine. Pull your oil dipstick and see if the oil on the stick looks milky. If so, that is an indication of water/antifreeze which points to a blown headgasket.

Good luck!
