2003 zx2 thermostat housing seal

Be sure the surface is nice and clean. Don't over tighten your screws. There is a torque spec for that particular set up, so you need to find out what the torque spec is and don't go past that. Next make sure you don't use any kind of silicone or form a gasket. Just use the O-ring on clean surfaces.

Thermostat trick

This tip is for 210's 1.4 and 1.5. The original lowest degree temperature thermostat that manual calls for is 180 degree, but living in the southwest with a small 210 4 cyl calls for more cooling techniques. In the summer time I take out the thermostat and run it without it. In the winter time I install a regular GM 350 enginge 160 degree thermostat in my 210. It fits! And you can still run your 210 cool with 160 degrees.

Did you burp the air out of the cooling system? That needs to be done if you haven't - air will trap the thermostat and keep it from opening. Check my tips and tricks for how to do this.

Fluctuation engine temperature interior heat stops when engine temp goes up. engine makes clatter noise at times

Getting P0135 and P0301 also in this Montana. I'm guessing its the upstream O2. (bank 1, sensor 1)

Changed the thermostat, and the oil and antifreeze is clean and clear.

Any tips or tricks on how to tilt engine to change O2?

Did you burp the cooling system after you changed the thermostat and topped off the coolant? If not, click my screenname, go to Tips and Tricks, and follow the procedure there that I've written up. If this wasn't done, it'd be a very easy reason why you still overheat.

How to replace a thermostat on a 1993 dodge cARAVAN

Follow the lower radiator hose back from the radiator to the engine. Where it attaches is the thermostat housing. Open that up, remove the old thermostat, put the new one in (there's a small bleed valve on the face of the thermostat -that needs to be at the 12 o'clock position), reassemble, and then burp the cooling system (click my screenname, go to Tips and Tricks, and follow the burping instructions there).
