Thermostat for a 2002 Dodge Intrepid-2.7

Is the thermostat for a 2002 Dodge Intrepid, 2.7 really under the car? This doesn't sound like something that would be easy to replace. Does anyone have any ideas? If I would have to take it in to get fixed, does anyone know about how much this would cost?

The thermostat is an easy replacement. The part from the part store should be very inexpensive and is very easy to install. IMPORTANT: allow the cars cooling system to completely cool down before starting to work on it. Here are the steps to replace the thermostat:

1. Allow car to cool.
2. Place drain pan under radiator and allow for coolant to drain below the thermostat. Do not completely drain the system unless replacing the fluid.
3. Remove the hose clamp and hose from thermostat housing.
4. Remove the two bolts holding the housing to engine.
5. Remove the thermostat gasket and clean the gasket completely off the engine and thermostat housing.
6. Remove the thermostat and replace with new.
7. Place new gasket on with reassembly.

I have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 L. 1.) heat stopped working 2.) temp. guage went up 3.) little smoke from back of engine 4.) coolant was totally empty 5.) No coolant was present in oil 6.) car sounds...


It sounds like you have a leak. Diagnose where the leak is coming from. Check for coolant leakage at your water pump, at both ends of your radiator hoses, and the transmission coolant line. You may also want to replace your Thermostat just in case it's locked in the closed position.

I need to change the thermostat in a 2002 dodge intrepid and need to know where the housing is.


Follow the two big hoses where they attach to the engine, it should be apparent where the thermostat housing is at the end of the hose.

Radiators do not "go out". They leak or they don't... that's it. You wasted money changing a radiator if you aren't loosing coolant. The thermostat (~$10) is all you needed to change.

if it is the 3.5 liter v6 then the thermostat will be at the top of the engine where the radiator hose hooks up to the engine there will be a short pipe where radiator hooks up and two or three bolts holding it to the engine it is not under the plastic intake plenum it is forward of that .

How do you replace a water pump on a dodge intrepid 2003


The intake where the thermostat goes is in the driver side of the motor behind the altenator. I had to remove the front clip of the car and the altenator to get to it. It is quite a job.
