Hi,
Folow the large hose from the top of the radiator to the engine block. There should be a housing held on with 2 bolts. The thermostat element is inside this.
Note which way around it is fitted, as the bulb part has to be on the engine side to work correctly.
Easy way is to drain 1/2 of coolant from the plug under the radiator into a clean bowl.
Undo top hose, Replace stat, do up hose again, then refill through the expansion bottle. If it won't take it all due to an airlock, run engine a short while, then try to refill again.

Often new stats come with a new gasket - use it with a very thin smear of sealant, and grease the bolt threads before replacing - don't overtighten - they're only small bolts.

Dont forget to by some primatech glue to but on the engine black and the housing unit before bolting back on. If you dont all your engine coolant will leak back out because it isnt sealed.

Overheated. Why won't it start?


I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

How to change out thermostat on 2002 jeep liberty? Do I have to remove the water pump?


Hi:
You don't need to remove the water pump. The thermostat is located under a housing, at the engine end of the upper radiator hose.

All you need to do is drain your radiator, remove the upper radiator hose, and remove the thermostat housing. Clean it up well, and replace all gaskets before reinstalling!

Draining radiator


There is something called a pigcock, which is usually located on the side bottom of the radiator next to the lower radiator hose. The easiest way to drain your radiator is just to disconnect your lower radiator hose.

The thermostat is most commonly located at the end of the upper radiator hose going into your engine block.
