Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. The bubbled piece if aluminum (or plastic) the hose connects to is the thermostat housing.

Need instructions for a thermostat change on a 2005 GMC Savanna van with a 4.8L V8 engine.

follow the bottom radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. where it connects is the thermostat housing which is secured by 2, 10mm headed bolts. remove the 2 bolts and the thermostat and seal are behind it. replace the thermostat and seal, secure housing with the 2 bolts, fill with coolant, and you are done it is a very quick and easy job probably easiest from under the vehicle

Anyone know where the thermostat is located on 2005 Dodge magnum 3.5L

Just follow the upper radiator hose. It will lead right to the thermostat housing which should have 3 bolts holding the housing on. Thermostat is directly underneath.

How to install a 2005 chevy cobalt thermostat

  • Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
  • Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
  • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
  • Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
  • The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
  • When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
  • Install the gasket.
  • Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
  • When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
  • You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.

How do you change the thermostat & refill the coolant on a 2005 chevy silverado? 5.3 liter engine.

Locate the thermostat. The thermostat is in a metal housing at the end of the radiator hose where it connects to the engine.

Drain enough coolant to make the water level below the the thermostat level so that the coolant doesn't spill everywhere...

Remove the thermostat:
The housing is held down by two bolts.
Remove the bolts, remove the thermostat and scrape the gasket and sealant from the housing and the manifold.

When replacing, use Permatex #2 - non-hardening gasket sealant.

Replenish the radiator with 50/50 coolant/water mixture (re-use what you took out; don't pour down drain or on grass - kills vegetation).

Remove radiator cap and let engine warm up (look for leaks) to allow trapped air in the cooling system to escape.
Note: there may be some burping valves near the thermostat. If obvious, open them to allow air to escape.

Hope this helps!
