Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!

The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant from the radiators lower radiator hose.
Thermostat :
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is removed ).
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.

You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,

ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.

1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator hose, fill cooling system.

thermostat # 17670-77E00
lower radiator hose #17854-65G20
hose clamp #09401-36403
upper radiator hose # 17852-65G20

For 1989 Toyota Truck Land Cruiser 4.0L FI 6cyl, check this diagrams, according with your Engine Code...

Fig. 1: On, 3VZ-E engines the thermostat is located in the waterpump


zjlimited_180.jpg

Fig. 2: Exploded view thermostat and housing on the 1FZ-FE engine

Fig. 3: Exploded view thermostat and housing on the 2RZ-FE and 3RZ-FE engines


zjlimited_182.jpg

Fig. 4: Exploded view thermostat and housing on the 5VZ-FE engine


To install:
  1. When installing a new thermostat always use a new gasket. Be sure that the thermostat is positioned with the spring down or into the housing. On 3VZ-E engines, the jiggle valve (looks like a small rivet in the edge of the thermostat) must be at the top or 12 o'clock position.
zjlimited_183.jpg

Fig. 8: If used, the thermostat must be installed with the jiggle valve at the top


  1. Install the water inlet. Install the bolts finger-tight until the inlet is positioned exactly. Tighten the bolts to 10-14 ft. lbs. (13-19 Nm). Overtightening will break the ear off the housing and spoil your afternoon-don't do it.
  2. Install the hoses and wire connectors removed for access. Make certain the coolant hoses are not kinked or twisted after installation. Do not overtighten the hose clamps.
  3. Fill the cooling system with coolant.
  4. Start the engine and check for leaks. Top off any fluid levels.

How does the thermostat go in. Tip up or down?


Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.
CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.
  1. Locate the thermostat. This is located in a housing on the engine side of the upper radiator hose for all engines except the 4.7L. On the 4.7L engine, the thermostat is located on the engine side of the lower radiator hose.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable (both batteries on diesels).
  3. Drain the engine coolant from the block until the level is below the thermostat.
  4. On V-10 engines, remove the support rod.
  5. On most V-6 and V-8 models, the alternator must be removed or repositioned for access to the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  7. Disconnect any sensors fitted to the thermostat housing.
  8. Remove the retaining bolts from the thermostat housing. Note the lengths and location of each bolt for ease of installation.
  9. Remove the thermostat housing, thermostat, and gasket, if fitted.
  10. Note the relative positions of all components, especially gaskets and seals. Note the orientation of the thermostat in the housing.
To install:
  1. Be sure the new thermostat is the correct one for your engine.
  2. On V-10 engines, note that there is a rubber lip-type seal with a metal shoulder pressed into the intake manifold beneath the thermostat. The thermostat should fit snugly in the seal.
  3. Clean the gasket or seal mating surfaces.
  4. Paper gaskets must be replaced.
  5. Install the thermostat, gasket or seals.
  6. Install the thermostat housing on the engine.
NOTE The thermostat housing may have the word FRONT on it (3.9L, 5.2L, 5.9L); this goes towards the front of the vehicle.
  1. Be sure all components are properly seated before tightening.
  2. Tighten the housing bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Fasteners should be tightened evenly to avoid leaks or damage.
  3. Reinstall the radiator hose onto the housing.
NOTE Ensure that you have secured the system drain plug(s) before refilling with coolant.
  1. Refill the radiator with a proper coolant mixture.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable(s).
  3. Start the engine and bleed the cooling system. Refer to "GENERAL INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE."
  4. Ensure that the thermostat is operational (by checking the upper radiator hose for warmth), and that there are no leaks.

I dont no where the t-stat is located on a 2001


The thermostat is located under a small housing, on the engine, and the upper radiator hose attaches to it. To gain access, on a cool engine, drain your coolant, then remove the upper radiator hose, then unbolt the thermostat housing, and remove the thermostat. To install, clean all mating surfaces, and install a new thermostat with a new gasket. Reconnect the upper radiator hose, and fill the engine back up with coolant.

How easy is it to replace the thermostat


Chrysler Full-Size Trucks 1997-2000 Repair Guide
Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Avoid physical contact with the coolant. Wear protective clothing and eye protection. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Clean up spills as soon as possible. Coolant can be reused as long as it is reasonably clean and free of debris. If it appears contaminated or is more than one or two years old, it should be replaced.
WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.
CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.

Thermostat change audi a6 2,4liter, motorcode aga


Drain the coolant into a container. Locate the upper radiator hose to where it ends, and remove holding bolts. The thermostat is usually located in that end, or inside the upper radiator hose.

Where is the thermostat located in my 1995 mazda 626


The thermostat is located on the engine block, where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. You'll see a large elbow-like component that is attached to the engine with 2 bolts.
Just follow that upper radiator hose and you got the location. When you remove that housing (elbow-like component), you'll see the thermostat.
Make sure you note which end of the thermostat is up and which end is down. Don't reverse the install.
