SOURCE: need to replace thermostat but not sure where it

Follow the lower hose up to the water pump where there is a housing for the thermostat. To remove this you will first, want to take the front right tire off then the dust guard for it; the thermostat housing should now be viseable. Then you will want to take the plastic windshield washer, and engine coolant reserviors off to make the job easier. Next take the bottom rad. hose off the water pump(where it goes to, from the radiator). then struggle for awhile with taking the three nuts that hold the thermostat housing together (a wobbler bit on a socket wrench can make this job easier). Once these are off you can unplug electric plug on top of the housing, pull that part of the housing off and there the thermostat sits in all of its evasive gloriousness waitng for you .

SOURCE: where is the thermostat located on the 1993

It is NOT on the upper radiator hose, it is where the lower hose connects next to the air filter housing. You do not need to disconnect the hose, there are two 10mm bolts that come off and the thermostat is inside this housing.

SOURCE: where is the thermostat located on a 1992 Lexus

there are two large coolant hoses connected to your radiator. Follow the lowest hose to the engine which is connected to a pipe. The pipe is connected to an pipe-elbow. Behind the pipe-elbow you will find the thermostat. It is troublesome to replace due to the compressor and alternator that are in the way.

My 1993 lexus es300 is overheating. one mechanic said that it was the water pump. another said the power steering pump, who is correct?


the power steering pump would have nothing to do with the engine overheating but the water pump certainly would, but before you go to the trouble of replacing the water pump you need to be certain that is the problem as there are other issues that can cause overheating, like the thermostat or a blocked radiator, the mechanic who said it was the power steering pump quiet obviously don't know too much about engines............hope this helps......cheers.

How to change wiper blades


The 2003 Lexus ES300 has the most common hook-end wiper arms. If you purchase the replacement blades first, there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

How much should it cost to replace the timing belt and water pump on a lexus es 2001


My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!

I have a 1993 lexus es300 and after it runs it gets hot.


Possible the thermostat is stuck closed and doesn't allow the coolant to circulate through the engine. Somewhat easy fix. Thermostat is usually located on the front top of the motor at the end of the top radiator hose. To change loosen the coupling bolts and remove the metal cover. The thermostat is round, made of metal, usually copper and is about the size of the radiator cap. It will come out pretty easily. When installing the new one be sure it's in the right way, it's a one way valve after all, so the flow is going the right way. There is usually arrows showing the flow direction on the radiator and or hoses. A gasket is required to help seal the thermostat in place. Be sure to use the proper torque setting to secure the bolts holding the coupling. They're not very expensive to replace. You may want to purchase a repair manual for the vehicle as well it's very helpful. Happy tinkering
