How do i check if the thermostate opens up in my 92 crown victoria??
Your radiator hose will get alot of pressure as its getting hot .when the stat opens you can squeeze it and feel the pressure go away if it stays hard it isnt opening .

Ok and do i put antifreeze in atfer checking or before? ?
Make sure its cooled off make sure its full then warm it up .if it isnt full it wont open on time or at all.
When i warmed it up,drove it for a min, i could squeeze the hose a little and i was really hot and the car was over heating??
Probly needs a waterpump . Switch out the thearmostat first see if that fixes it its cheap . Make sure your fan is working properly .
The hose should be pretty soft if the stat opened.if it isnt it mite be only partially open.
if the water pump is not leaking it is good/ put a thermostate in it...
The water pump not leaking isnt always true do the stat first . The propeller in th pump somtimes becomes loose and doesnt spin its pressed on .
change the thermostate....
Yes do the thermostat first.
