Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Blazer
In most cases, not all, follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. The hose clamp on the end is usually clamped to the thermostat housing (sometimes there's a metal tube, and another rubber hose, then the housing). Drain the coolant through the petcock valve on the radiator,or place a large pan under the vehicle to catch what escapes. It's usually easier to remove the hose from the thermostat housing (Get a flashlight and look inside, but make sure the engine is cooled off). If you can see the thermostat, then remove the housing. (put the thermostat back in the way it came out. Pointy end towards the radiator.) Clean off the old gasket from both surfaces, install the new thermostat, apply the new gasket. Reverse the procedure and top off with coolant.
Search under "images" and type in "thermostat" if you're not sure what it looks like. You'll be looking for the end with the point.
