Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
How do i change the thermostat
DO THIS WITH A COLD ENGINE. There are two rubber pipes coming from the radiator to the engine, one on the top and one on the bottom. The top one joins the engine via a domed plate that is bolted to the engine. Undo the rubber pipe (it can be quite tight.) and loosen the bolts slightly so that ther is a little play. Give the plate a light tap with a wooden mallet or something similar to break the seal with the engine. Undo the bolts and remove the plate. You will now be looking at the thermostat. It fits in loosely. Remove it and get one with the same specs. Replacing is the opposite of removal. Replace the gasket too. Remove the radiator cap and top up with glycol. Run it to normal temp and look for leaks.
