SOURCE: Where & how to install thermostat in honda accord ex 1992

you need to follow the upper hose that lead from the radiator to the engine, there is two bolt that connect the thermostat housing to the block loosen the bolt using a 10 mm socket with ra-chet. Make sure that the engine is cool off before attempt to do this you will lose coolant but that's ok you will add the coolant when you finish replacing the thermostat. start the engine with the radiator cap off then add coolant slowly and cap it, then fill the reservoir up.

note the way you remove the thermostat that's the same way you will put the new one so pay attention when you remove the old one good luck.

1995 ford windstar thermostat housing bolt torque spec

Most people don't bother using a torque wrench to tighten a thermostat housing.

It is more important to be careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time. You do not want to warp, crack, miss align the part you are bolting.

It does not take a lot of torque to seal a thermostat housing. I would guess somewhere between 15 and 20 ft lbs.

It is often hard to find such torque specs for specific vehicles.

For bolts that you cannot find a specified torque spec, you can refer to a standard bolt torque chart. The charts are based on the diameter of the bolt threads not the wrench size used to fit the bolt head. The charts also depend on the hardness of the bolt material. Also keep in mind the material you are bolting into.

Here is one such chart...

Keep in mind that thermostat housing bolts are just sealing a gasket. They are not holding the entire car together.

After turning wrenches for many years, most mechanics just know by feel.

There are cases where a torque wrench is mandatory. Like head bolts, wheel bearing/hub nuts, rod caps, main bearing, etc.

How to replace 2003 xj8 thermostat, car is over heating and fan runs when turned off

=thermostats are easy fixes, just locate your upper radiator hose and where it enters the engine. three should be a thermostat housing at the end of the hose and it will be bolted to the engine. Remove this housing and replace with correct thermostat and gasket and tighten housing to the proper torque specs. You will need to use care when removing the bolts as it appears to have some clerance problems on some of the housing bolts as it is bolted to composite plastic material and is easily damaged. here is link. I would not over tighten the bolts again because of the material.

What is torque spec for 2004 Ford 4.0 thermostat cover bolts? Replaced black ''plastic'' thermostat housing and inlet cover. Thanks

Normally these bolts are about 20-24ft lbs. You don't want to over tighten them as they should have a rubber washer/gasket to help provide a good seal. These cast aluminum housing will easily strip so just use care when tightening. Just snug both bolts and run the vehicle til it reaches operating temp then check for leaks. You can also purchase a Chiltons/Haynes manual for your vehicle at any auto parts store for $15 they normally give you the torque specs as well as some other valuable tipe
