Where is the thermostat on a 1993 audi 100 cs 2.8 v6

The thermostat is located in the engine block just to the side of the water pump underneath the housing where the upper radiator hose is attached.

  1. Remove the lower engine shield.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the vehicle to collect the coolant.
  3. Remove the radiator cap and drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  4. Place a large drain pan under the engine block drain located at the bottom of the engine near the vicinity of the flywheel and the oil pan.
  5. Drain the engine block coolant into a suitable container.
  6. Place the (hood) lock carrier in the 'service position'. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Body And Trim, Service Position, Front Bumper, Hood Lock Carrier.
  7. Remove the accessory drive belt. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): General Information And Maintenance, Routing Maintenance And Tune-Up.
  8. If installed, remove the upper front engine cover.
  9. Remove the toothed camshaft drive belt from the right side cylinder head to allow enough access to remove the thermostat housing. Cover and protect the drive belt from residual coolant.
  10. Remove the mounting fasteners; remove the housing, then the thermostat.

Temp gage reads cold in 1993 camrey


more than likely have a bad thermostat. easiest way to check if that is problem is let the engine run for at least 5-10 min. after that grab the upper radiator hose with your hand. be cautious because if the thermostat is working properly this hose can be very hot. if it does not feel hot and has no pressure inside hose (you can feel like a garden hose: difference between on and off) then you need to replace the thermostat and gasket or seal. if you do have a hot and pressurized hose than you have a bad temperature sending unit. replace the part. good luck!!!

I can't seem to find the thermostat in my 2000 Chrysler LHS 3.5 L Is it in the manifold at the end of the upper radiator hose or elsewhere? I've seen so many answers and haven't yet found a solution. A...


If you were to take the upper radiator hose off the engine, and look into the resultant hole, you would see the thermostat.

The thermostat on all cars blocks water leaving the engine and going to the radiator, until the thermostat warms up enough to open.

While the thermostat is closed, water circulates through the heater hose, straight back to the inlet of the water pump. This circulation prevents hot spots, distributing the heat evenly to warm the engine up, and also brings that warmed water to the thermostat.

When the t-stat gets hot enough to open, water leaves the engine instead of circulating through it, and that allows cool(ed) water to flow from the radiator through the bottom hose to replace the water that left through the upper hose and t-stat.

The stub that the upper hose attaches to on the engine should be part of a small housing that is bolted to the engine. Removing that housing is how you remove the t-stat.

Locate thermostat 1993 90cs v6


Follow the upper and lower radiator hoses to the engine block (upper first). At the end of one of these hoses, there will be a "bubble" housing attached to block -- thermostat is under that.

Overheating


When you mention the radiator having a hot upper in pipe and a cool bottom out pipe tells me that the coolant is not moving around the engine. This could be down to a water pump not working, blocked radiator, thermostat not opening. The bottom hose should be cooler than the top hose but once the engine is up to working temp which is around 85/90 degrees c for an audi the bottom still should be farly hot to touch. Hope this helps

1993 V6 camry engine over heats and check engine light comes on


The thermostat housing is located by grabbing the upper radiator hose, and following it back to the engine block.
The housing that the hose is connected to is the thermostat housing.
Changing the thermostat will fix your problem!
