You will have to drill the center of the bolt with a small drill say 5 mm then get a 5 mill easy out . it works by making a thread in the hole you drilled but it turns backwards and is bevelled so as it tightens it un screws the bad bolt hope this helps if so please rate me joe

The back bolts on my thermostat /water outlet is hard to get to.on my 2000 lincoln ls what tools do i need

should be able to get to it with a flex-socket,unless it's best for you to remove whatever is in the way (try first with a flex-socket and extension. MAKE SURE YOU HAND START THE BOLTS TO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T CROSS-THREAD AND TIGHTEN EVENLY AS TO PREVENT BREAKING THE NEW PIECE.

My 99 cavalier is leaking from the top of my fuel tank... one of the bolt that holds the strap is striped... how do i remove the bolt with out making a spark... what would leak on the top of the fuel tank

most likely the leak is the tank its self, dirt sets on top of the tank holding moister on the top of the tank causing little rust pin holes. did you strip the bolt head or the threads? if just the bolt head they make a strip out socket you can get them from your local snap-on tool truck or some sears stores keep them and all can order them, but if you striped the threads you will have to cut the bolt head off and i suggest you have a pro do it for obvious reasons.

Very easy. Locate upper cooling hose (about 2" diameter and black) going to the engine. The thermostat is located in the housing connecting this hose to the engine head. Usually two bolts to come off. Remove old thermostat AND gasket. New part will come with gasket and instructions on box. Very important!!! SPRING SIDE OF THERMOSTAT GOES TOWARDS ENGINE. MM85
