New thermostat sticking
Posted 17 February 2006 - 11:03 AM
So last night I bought a new t-stat along with upper and lower radiator hoses, put it in, and this morning, again it stuck on me.
What happens is I get about 2 miles away from my house and the gauge slowly climbs past half, till almost in the red. Then Snap, it'll open up and the temp will drop to normal and stay fine till it's starts cold again.
Also, this morning a hose sprung a leak. It's the small hose that goes from the thermostat housing (or there-abouts) to the intake, just below the carb.
So, I'm not sure if the hose thing is related, easy fix though which I'll have to do at lunch...

could the radiator be plugged?

Just a thought...

Have you replaced the rad cap? It may be popping off at too high a pressure... that could explain the busted hose.
Just a thought...
Cap was replaced when the 1st tstat was changed, so yeah, it's new. Radiator is semi new too (replaced by the guy before me).
