Follow the upper radiator hose. Where it connects to the engine is the thermostat housing. Unbolt that housing and the thermostat is under there.

Where is the thermostat located


Hi,

Your engine must be cold before removing the thermostat.

Find the location of your thermostat by following the rubber hose located on bottom of your radiator (passenger side) to the point where it attaches to the engine. Remove the two bolts at that location and you'll find your thermostat nestled in there.

Be sure to place a pail under the car to contain the coolant.


Thermostat Operation:

00047_thermostat.jpgThe automotive thermostat is a temperature controlled on and off valve. When the temperature rises to a predetermined temperature, the thermostat opens up to allow the engine coolant to flow through the cylinder block and the radiator. This flow is crucial to maintain optimum operating temperature for fuel efficiency, enhanced driveability, and engine protection. The coolant flow is reduced when the engine is cold, and the flow is increased when the engine is hot. Contrary to popular opinion, operating the vehicle without the thermostat doesn't make the engine run cooler. It will actually run hotter because there isn't a thermostat to slow the coolant flow. This means the coolant doesn't stay in the radiator long enough to dissipate its heat.


All the best

Why dose gas come out of tail pipe 2001 .3,3L


It's not possible for liquid gasoline to come out of the tailpipe - however, due to chemical processes that take place inside the engine and in the exhaust system which are too in-depth to explain here, it is very common for water to come out of the tail pipe - especially on cooler more humid days.

Please tell me where locate the theromostat in


The thermostat is located inside the thermostat housing. To find it follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block.
Depending what size of engine you have the location is different.
The thermostat on this vehicle's (the Envoy & Trailblazer are essentially the same vehicle) In-line 6 cylinder engine is on the driver's side of the engine, below & behind the alternator.
If you have a V8 cylinder engine is in front of engine see the picture. Item 303 thermostat housing, 305 thermostat, and 304 thermostat gasket.

I was working for a company that used 1995 Caravan's for their sales force and I do not know of any sensor. I am confused by the term "cover".

Do you mean valve cover? If so does the sensor go somewhere? I can solve your problem, but I need move info. Please call or email me.

Either,way let me know the outcome. Your feed back is my only reward. Also, please rank my answer with as many thumbs as you think I should get.

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.
