    thermostat location is on top hose from right or bottom hose?
    was told the bottom but i don't see a 3 bolt assembly there.
    I have disconnected the top hose to check for other bolts but none there.
    I am also looking as the aluminum hosing and a serpentine belt is part of it as well as several electronic items bolted to the top for securing them done.

    Or is the thermostat at the bottom hose? Where that hose connects to the block there is a smaller 2 bolt position on it. would it be behind that ?
    Or i am thinking that changing the thermostat in this car was going to be as simple as taking off a hose unbolting 2 - 3 bolts and then replace?

You open the hood, put your right hand down and there should be a big black hose coming out of the radiator right close to it. Follow the hose to where it connects to the engine. This shold be the thermostat housing. It's usually aluminum and has two or three bolts holding it in

SOURCE: leaking coolant from a small hole located in the

water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO

Where is the thermostat located in the 06 stratus

  • Find the location where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold of the engine by tracing it from the radiator to thermostat intake housing bolted to the intake.
  • 2 Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat intake housing by loosening the band clamp that secures it into place. With the clamp loosened, pull the hose off the housing.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the housing to the intake manifold and then lift the housing off the intake.
  • 4 Lift the thermostat out of the intake manifold and place the new thermostat into the hole. The end of the thermostat with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the intake manifold.
  • 5 Lift the thermostat intake housing gasket off the intake manifold and place the new one onto the intake manifold.
  • 6 Place the thermostat intake housing onto the intake manifold and bolt it into place. Reconnect the hose using the band clamp.
  • Six-Cylinder Engines
  • 1 Drive the Dodge onto a set of front-end ramps and secure the parking break. Allow adequate time for the radiator fluid to cool down. Thirty minutes is usually adequate.
  • 2 Loosen the petcock on the lower right hand side of the radiator and drain all of the radiator fluid into a drain pan. Close the petcock once drained.
  • 3 Trace the lower radiator hose to the location where the hose connects to the engine block. The metal housing the hose connects to is the lower thermostat outlet. Remove the hose from the outlet by loosening the band clamp and then by pulling the hose off the outlet. Be careful--some fluid will drain from the hose.
  • 4 Remove the two bolts that secure the thermostat outlet to the engine block and pull the thermostat outlet off the block.
  • 5 Discard the O-ring inside the bottom edge of the thermostat outlet and place a new one into the outlet.
  • 6 Pull the thermostat out of the engine block and replace it with a new one. The end with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the engine block.
  • 7 Place the thermostat outlet onto the engine block and secure it into place. Reattach the lower radiator hose with the band clamp.
  • 8 Open the radiator filler cap located on top of the radiator and fill the radiator with the fluid previously drained from the system.

    The thermostat on the 2.0 l ABA motor is located in a black plastic housing which resides on the UNDERSIDE of the motor, on the passenger side. It is normally hidden by the power steering pump, which must be moved out of the way in order to access the thermostat. Don't lose the o-ring!

    Location of engine thermostat

    It is located on thetop front of the engine. Look for a radiator hose running to the engine block. You will see a housing which the hose connects to. It will look similar to this. Remove the 3 bolts and lift the housing and you will find the thermostat.

    I need to know the location of the Thermostat on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee,

    If you have a V8 the thermostat is located under the coolant inlet tube. The tube is located on top of the engine, in the front about center. The thermostat is hard to change. Locate the upper radiator hose on your radiator and follow it to the engine block it is located on the top front part of your engine and you must lean over the front and look down onto the block to see the thermostat housing.

    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.
