hi..

Has anyone had any problems with thermostat
cause I just checked my car the upper radiator hose is alot hotter than the lower one... Im just checking if im correct in assuming that the thermostat is closed or only partially open..Cause the temp inside the car is pretty much the same..

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance

Yup I just replaced my thermostat, but apparently it's a common problem with my engine and the electronically-programmed thermostat. Your temperature needle should rise to the centre of the gauge and stay there for the entire journey. If it doesn't, change that 'stat!

hi thanks,jhbodle elo
the temp guage in the car remains the same , but there is alot of stem coming from probably the over flow, I think that is from the pressure of the thermostat being only partially open..
going to repairers now , seee whats up!!
