Question about 1998 Chevrolet C2500
I need location of the thermostat and "Rad Cap"
The rad cap is on the top of the radiator on the passenger side,as for the thermostat....locate the upper rad hose(comes out of the top of the rad aprox 3" wide) it should be on the driver side of the rad. Follow the upper rad hose from the rad to the engine,the housing for the thermostat is at the end of the hose.
1:drain the radiator(there is a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator protrudes from rad looks similar to a wing nut)
2:Remove the two bolts in the thermostat housing(there may be some nuts holding some ground wires there that you have to remove before you can remove the thermostat housing bolts)
3:remove the housing ...........note: make note of the position of the thermostat before removal.
4:clean gasket surfaces install new gasket \ silicone (automotive grade silicone can be used with or without gasket) 5:insert new thermostat in the proper position.
6:replace housing and hose and top up the rad
hope this helps.......Thanks for choosing FIX YA!
