Is it an easy job to change the thermostat on a Mitsubishi Express Van 2004. I was told it was at the end of the top radiator hose. My sons car has broken down are there any tricks I should know.

Loosen the upper radiator hose. This is the hose that connects to top of the radiator to the engine. Loosen the hose on the end that connects to the engine by using a flat-tip screwdriver to loosen the circular clamp.

  • Remove the hose. Pull the upper radiator hose off the end that connects to the engine. Have a drain pan underneath the hose to catch any coolant that remains in the hose.

  • Loosen the thermostat housing. Use your ratchet and socket set to loosen the bolts that hold your Mitsubishi's thermostat housing in place. The number of bolts and their locations vary based on your Mitsubishi model

    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.

    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).
