There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

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.

Did you unbolt the egr tubes? Also the thermostat isn't in the housing you are removing. It's in the housing that the lower hose is attached to.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2001 Dodge Intrepid


Hi:
Your thermostat is located under the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. The housing is held to the engine with bolts,and has a gasket that must be replaced when you replace the thermostat. Make sure all surfaces are cleaned before reassembly.
