You should only have to remove the plastic filter holder and the hose is right there on top of the motor.the plastic breather/filter cover is the only thing you should have to remove to get to the hose

I can't get the thermostat housing off the engine to replace the thermostat. i've removed the bolts, upper radiator clamp and hose from the elbow going to the housing and it is loose, but it wo'n tcome off...

The thermostat is not under the upper housing. The thermostat is behind the lower housing that the lower hose is connected to.

If you are changing the upper housing known as the water outlet housing because it is leaking you are on the right track. You will need to remove the intake plenum on top of the engine and the upper radiator support. You will then be able to access the bolt on the backside of the engine that bolts the pipe retainer in place and disconnect the hose from the pip. The upper radiator support needs to be removed in order fro there to be enough clearance to pull the whole assembly out.

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid it runs hot, the water bubbles out of the place under the hood it doesnt leak the water but it is empty after you drive it?

Check the upper radiator hose by touching it after you have run the car for awhile to see if it is hot. If so then the water is circulating in the system, if not then the upper radiator hose will be cold and the thermostat is stuck. replace the thermostat and your problem will fixed. Be sure to disconnect the negative ground wire from battery before you attempt to work on coolant system. hope this will help you.

follow the upper radiator hose to the motor . it is attached to a plate, should have two bolts that hold it down to the motor. Remove the hose and bolts and the thermostat is located under this plate. Remember to use some sort of sealant on the gasket when re-installing to prevent leaks.
