Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
Where is the thermostat on a 1998 jetta 2.0 motor its not on the side of the block like it should be can anyone tell me where its at thank you
The thermostat is located on the bottom of the water pump on the front of the engine. The lower radiator hose connects to it. You must remove the lower radiator hose. Then remove the slide clip from the plastic tube on the thermostat housing. Remove that plastic tube. Now remove the side cover in the passenger side wheel well. Then remove the 5 bolts holding the power steering pump on and then remove the power steering belt. Now swing the power steering pump to the side. you will now be able to access the two 8mm bolts holding the thermostat in place. And there ya go. Be careful if you snap those 8mm bolts on the thermostat you are gonna have to replace the housing. And you don't want to remove the water pump to do that. Trust me. ; )

In volkswagon jetta, the thermostat contains two sides. one is flat side and the other is extended side. and the thermostat is located in such a way that the extended side goes in the engine block.
