The thermostat is in the front of the engin inbetween the radiator and engin. Follow top radiator hoze thats connected to the metal pipes by the altenator on passengerside down the hoze will go down into the front of the engin and between radiator, then will stop at a 3 way connector where it splits into 2 more hozes. if u get under neith the car and look up at that connecctor there is 2 bolts remove those bolts and the thermostat is in there. U may need to pry it out a little with a flat head screw driver. then clean the rim and inside where the thermostat was and get gasket sealer and spread it on like butter all over where gasket was and where anything will touch when bolted back together. then sit the new gasket in the top part first then place the long skinny shaft of the thermostat in first into the upper part of the connector (where u took it out) then put the bottom part and top part back together (make sure everything is dry b4 its put in and together) then put the 2 bolts back in the housing and ur all done. Just make sure u check ur coolant cause u lost some in this process. Let the car run for a while and cheak for leaks the refill coolant again after it has taken some into the engin. check coolant levels for a few days after this and for leaks aswell.

Where is the thermostat on a 1997 Oldsmobile 88 3.8 v6 engine


While standing at the front of the vehicle, look to the right side of the radiator to find a large hose connected to the radiator. It will lead you to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is located inside the metal pipe at the other end of the hose. Exact mounting details vary with model year. Generally, there are two bolts, one above and one below the housing that must be removed to access the thermostat. The heat shield on some models for the exhaust crossover pipe partially blocks access to the bolt heads, so some tricky tools are needed to remove it. On mine, I removed the EGR sensor and heat shield so I could access the bolt heads. Once removed, the thermostat is very simple to replace.If the thermostat is located on top you may have to take off the altenator tension bracket.

Where is thermostat on 1997 lincoln contenental


Hello acweldy.
The thermostat is on the left(drivers) side of the engine near the front on the lower rad hose.
This diagram is a little small, sorry, but they don't allow us much space here.
The housing for the thermostat points down.
If you need further help in locating it, please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 lincoln mark 8?


thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.
The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia and 1 is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir
