Code 1281


IT MEANS THE ENGINE IS COLD FOR TO LONG SO ITS A TEMPERATURE SENSOR. YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE THERMASTAT IN YOUR CAR. THE GAGE IS WORKING OR YOU WOULD NOT GET A 1287 CODE SO DONT MESS WITH THE GAUGE, JUST GET A NEW THERMASTAT. AND UNHOOK YOUR NEGATIVE CABLE ON THE BATTERY BEFOR YOU REPLACE THIS AND TURN IGNITION TO START POSITION AND DO A TEN SECOND COUT, THEN REPLACE THE THERMASTAT , THEN HOOK YOUR NEGATIVE CABLE BACK UP THIS CLEARS THE CODES IN YOUR CAR SO IT WILL READ NEW CODES AS THINGS GO OUT. ALWAYS CLEAR YOUR CODES BEFOR DOING THE REPAIR AND DONT HOOK UP THE BATTERY UNTIL YOUR DONE WORKING ON IT,

I need to find the thermostat location in a mazda '96 B2300 SE


THE THERMASTAT WILL BE LOCATED AT THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE RADIATOR HOSE! ON THE ENGINE, YOU WILL SEE TWO BOLTS HOLDING THE INLET ON THE ENGINE! DRAIN THE RADIATOR, AND REMOVE THE HOSE FROM THE ENGINE INLET! UNBOLT THE INLET, AND YOU WILL SEE THE THERMASTAT, REPLACE IT IN THE SAME WAY THE OLD ONE COMES OUT, (USUALLY THE SPRING SIDE WILL GO IN TOWARD ENGINE)! THEN PLACE THE NEW GASKET ON THE INLET, AND REBOLT IT TO THE ENGINE! REPLACE THE HOSE, TIGHTEN IT DOWN, ADD ANTIFREEZE TILL FULL, START ENGINE, AND CHECK FOR LEAKS! YOU CAN REMOVE THE RADIATOR CAP AND WATCH THE COOLANT, AS THE THERMASTAT OPENS, THE COOLANT WILL START MOVING! REPLACE THE CAP,

Thermostat is acting up is it easy to change


YES! DRAIN THE RADIATOR! THE THERMASTAT IS AT THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE! REMOVE THE HOSE! AND THE THERMASTAT HOUSING HAS TWO BOLTS HOLDING IT ON! REMOVE THE TWO BOLTS, AND THE HOUSING! CLEAN THE AREA AROUND THE BASE OF THE HOUSING! SCRAP OFF THE OLD GASKET FROM THE HOUSING, AND ON THE ENGINE! REPLACE THE GASKET WITH A NEW ONE! PLACE THE NEW THERMASTAT IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS THE OLD ONE COMES OUT! REPLACE THE HOUSING, TIGHTEN THE BOLTS, AND PUT THE RADIATOR HOSE BACK ON, RETIGHTEN IT, AND FILL WITH ANTIFREEZE, AND CHECK FOR LEAKS!

Replace thermastat


you will need to remove the exhaust manifold in order to get to the water pump that sits on the thermastat. Once you get the manifold off you will see the water pump there will be 4 bolts that hold the belly to the pump remove them and left it up the thermastat is under it.

Where is the thermostate located on a 1998 cadillac catera 3.0 v6 engine


Hi Friend:

To Locate your thermastat, Open your Hood and look down at the top of your radiator.You'll see a Top Raditor Hose that goes from your radiator to your Thermastat Housing.

You'll see a Hose clamp on the Thermastat housing .

NOTE: before you loosen the Hose Clamp Make sure you your car is cooled down and remove your radiator cap to release any pressure that is in your system.

After the Hose is off you'll see a Domed shaped Housing that is your Thermastat Housing. Remove the Bolts that Hold the Housing on and Seals the Cooling System.From Leaking out of the Housing.

After removing the Housing you'll see your Thermastat .Just remove it and Clean up all old gasket Material so you can replace the gasket with your new one .But put in your new thermastat 1st.

Then make sure you seal the gasket with Gasket Glue. And Replace the Housing Bolts and Tighten up good and Sung.

Put back on your hose then clamp.And Refill your Radiator with Coolant.

This will get your new thermastat in and get you Ready to go .
