Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo
Car keeps overheating...thinking it could possibly be the thermostat sticking or maybe the fan motor, but fan seems to work. where exactly is the thermostat..and how do i go about changing it. Also, do i use some sort of gasket sealer for it or what? Any help is appreciated. thanks
The thermostat is located on the cylinder head, under a roundish housing, under the distributor cap. Just follow the big hose to the cylinder head. You have to remove the air intake collector to see it. If you do replace the thermostat, make sure that the one that you buy has a small "wiggle valve" on the outer edge of it. This bleeds air pockets from the system, and it is important that it is there. Additionaly, the "wiggle valve" should be installed with it pointing straight up (12 o'clock). This is critical. Regarding the sealer; the thermostat is sealed by an O-ring; no need for any sealer.
Remember to be careful, whilst draining the coolant, if it is hot.
Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
