Question about 2000 Chrysler LHS
Drain half of the antifreeze out seeing you most likely going to lose it most of it when you disconnect the thermostat housing hoses. Disconnect the electric engine connectors and power steering pressure switches. Then disconnect the radiator hose and heater hoses, there will be to thermostat bolts one on top and bottom. Remove housing, thermostat, and gasket. You are probably going to have to scape the old gasket off...ON housing and engine block. Normally you would use a grinder but if you don't have one you can use a razor blade and make you get all of it off to prevent antifreeze from seeping through the housing. Reinstall is backwards and add new antifreeze, make sure you tighten bolts to 12 NM (105 inch lbs)

This can be done buy popping the hood and removing the bulb from the rear of the headlight housing. don't screw with the housing because, its leveled for optimal sight range.

I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.

fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a thermostat.it resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.
