Thermo's are not the kind of parts that you can fix. If something is wrong with them, you don't risk your engine. Throw it away and get a new one. Any other case and you're risking eventually a new engine because of possible overheating, due to defective thermostat.

Heating problem I have a 1999 dodge grand caravan V6 3.3L. 190,000. Cant get rid of it yet but now have problem.

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab pickup. Last year when winter came I got the check engine code P1281. I replaced the thermostat and fixed the problem. Now, its getting cold again and I get the same code. I know how to fix the problem, but my question is why do I keep getting thermostat problems? Could it be my radiator needs flushing out? I bought the thermo last year at a local Auto Zone. But I would suspect it to last more than ONE YEAR!!


Yes, the radiator might have a lot of crime in it. it would be best to do a complete engine and radiator flush to clean debris from entire system. then refill with anti-freeze. the best thermostat for a vehicle is a super stat if you can find one, ... Dodge Ram 1500

I HAVE A 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, 112,000 MILES. JUST FOUND OUT BALL BEARINGS NEED REPLACING. THE MECHANIC SAID WOULD COST $1,600- $1,700 TO FIX AND THAT THE RODS OR CRANK MAY NEED REPLACING BUT HE WILL NOT KNOW UNTIL HE GETS "IN THERE" IS THIS TRUE? CAN A JEEP DEALER TELL WITH JUST CHANGING THE BALL BEARINGS AND /OR SHOULD I EVEN BOTHER GETTING THIS FIXED? (PLEASE DON'T SAY TOO BAD I DID NOT GO FOR CASH FOR CLUNKERS!!) LTW

Our 2003 grand prix keeps just NOT STARTING. We looked online and found a site that let us know that it was probably a computer/security system and to reset, we needed to unplug the battery and then give it a few minutes to reset itself. This has picked up in frequency and sometimes takes quite a while to get started. Not great for when I need to go to work. Is there something we can do to fix the problem without throwing temporary bandaid on it that won't break us?


There is a lot of things that would cause a car not to start but if this resetting the anti theft system worked the most common item you car would need is the PASSLock lock cylinder. ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

I noticed my engine light on the dash of my 2004 Grand Prix was on so checked code with tester. Said coolant temp below thermostat temp. Replaced thermostat drove car for 30 minutes. Popped hood fixed top hose leak with clamp. Then noticed the gauge in car registered nothing as in cold and the two fans run all the time. Could this be that I need a new engine coolant temp sensor?
