To replace a thermostat, you will need at least: 1. A new thermostat 2. Screwdriver 2. Needle-nosed pliers. Depending on the thermostat and location in your home, you may need more. Make sure the new thermostat you are using to replace the old one with is compatible to your 110-volt housing circuitry. Always turn off the electrical power to the home thermostat at the power panel or circuit breaker box.--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bad theromostat 3.2 isuzu how to

The thermostat on the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2L v6 is located on the top of the engine under the upper intake manifold. In order to replace it you will have to depressurize the fuel system by running the engine with the fuel pump fuze removed until the engine dies and then carefully remove the fuel rail and injectors. Then remove the intake manifold which will give you access to the coolant nozzle fixture attached to the top of the engine. The thermostat is in the top of the engine block under the nozzle fixture. Be sure to replace the thermostat with the proper replacement part (may be difficult to find) and put on new gaskets for the intake manifold before replacing it.

Replace themostst

Hello ,

The thermostat is located on the right side of the engine looking in,between the intake manifold and the air filter box, underneath the wiring. This is in a 1994 Ford Probe GT 6 cylinder.

To replace the thermostat, you really need to remove the intake manifold and this can be up to two or three hours work alone, even for a qualified mechanic.

It is in the housing at the engine end of the upper rad hose. When replacing it make sure the spring on the thermostat is toward the engine.

NOTE: Remove the air intake box so you can see below. There is a pipe running right into the bell housing where the thermostat is housed. There is one bolt that you need to remove (it is to the right,below the distributor) Then there are the other 12 mm bolts on the bell of the thermostat housing to remove. After removing those the thermostat should be able to come right out.

Thank you, hope this helps you out.

Need to replace the themostat

  • Remove the bolts that hold the thermostat housing onto the intake manifold of the MR2 with an adjustable wrench and pull up on the thermostat housing to remove it from the intake. The housing is still connected to the hose. Lift the thermostat housing and the hose up to drain the antifreeze back into the radiator.
  • 2 Remove the old thermostat from the hole inside of the intake manifold and replace it with a new one. Pull the thermostat gasket off of the top of the intake manifold and wipe the manifold clean with a towel.
  • 3 Place a bead of RTV gasket maker around the bottom edge of the thermostat housing and allow it to dry for 15 minutes. Place the thermostat housing back onto the intake manifold and bolt the housing back into place. Allow 15 more minutes of drying time and slightly tighten the bolts again. This will form a solid seal between the intake manifold and the thermostat housing.

    Thermostat replacement diagram

    Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. specific instructions for your car are provided below. please get back to me with any questions.

    Colt and 1990-91 Vista

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Drain the cooling system to a point below the thermostat level.
    3. Remove the air cleaner.
    4. Disconnect the hose at the thermostat water pipe.
    5. Remove the water pipe support bracket nut.

    This nut is also an intake manifold nut. It is very difficult to get to. A deep offset 12mm box wrench is used to remove or replace it.
    1. Unbolt and remove the thermostat housing and pipe.
    2. Lift out the thermostat. Discard the gasket.

    To install:


    Fig. Fig. 1: Thermostat - 1990-92 Colt Hatchback. The 1.6L is 1990 only

    1. Clean the mating surfaces of the housing and manifold thoroughly.
    2. Install the thermostat with the spring facing downward and position a new gasket. The jiggle valve in the thermostat should be on the manifold side.
    3. Install the housing and pipe assembly. Torque the housing bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (14 Nm); the intake manifold nut to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
    4. Refill the system with coolant. Connect the negative battery cable.
    5. Start the engine and check for leaks.

    Thermostat replacement

    HI there,

    Well first of all you may please follow the steps below -

    1. Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat intake tube by loosening the retaining clip with a screwdriver. Slide the clip toward the radiator and pull the hose off the thermostat intake tube. 2. Remove the two 10-mm bolts that hold the thermostat intake tube onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent. Pull the intake tube off the intake manifold and inspect it for cracks. If any cracks are present, then you need a new thermostat intake tube.
    3. Pull the old thermostat and thermostat gasket off the engine with your hands and replace them both with new ones. The thermostat will be marked with "top." This end should stick out of the engine. 4. Place the thermostat intake tube back onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent and bolt it back into place. 5. Slide the radiator hose back on to the thermostat intake tube and secure it in place with the retaining clip. A band clamp can be used in place of the retaining clip for extra clamping pressure. Post comments for further help or information............

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks for suing FixYa!!

Be sure to replace the thermostat correctly and here is an image to help assist you.

    Intake manifold sealant repair now leaking maybe oil? coolant b4

    You need to remove the thermostat housing again. Then you will have to extract the bolts you broke off. You will need to drill and tap them so you can use an easy out to remove the broken bolts from the threads. Then you can clean up both mating surfaces and replace the gasket and the thermostat. Check to make sure you did not crack the thermostat housing or you may have another leak when finished. They are usually aluminum and break easily if too much pressure is applied or they are corroded and weak.
