Where is the thermostat on a 2008 jeep liberty

The thermostat will be at the end of your upper radiator hose. The neck that the hose bolts to needs to be unbolted from the engine - that's the thermostat housing. Should be three 10mm bolts, as well as some hoses that you may need to disconnect.

If you're replacing your thermostat, come prepared. You'll need to scrape the old gasket material on and apply a new gasket. Also, pay attention to how you remove your old thermostat and be sure to put the new one in with the same orientation.

Thermostat needs replaced

To replace a thermostat, you will need at least: 1. A new thermostat 2. Screwdriver 2. Needle-nosed pliers. Depending on the thermostat and location in your home, you may need more. Make sure the new thermostat you are using to replace the old one with is compatible to your 110-volt housing circuitry. Always turn off the electrical power to the home thermostat at the power panel or circuit breaker box.--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I need to replace the thermostat on my 98 countour. where is the housing located?

  • The housing is held on my two bolts and utilizes an "O" ring rather than a gasket like many of the thermostat housings. So you will need to check that "O" ring for cracking and damage. It's located on the right hand side of the engine under the intake housing which needs to come out to replace this thermostat. If you follow the top hose of the radiator it leads right to your thermostat housing.

How to put a thermostat on a 1985 merecury cougar

You'll need to remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing. Unbolt the 2 bolts holding the thermostat to the intake manifold and remove the thermostat housing and thermostat. Clean both mating surfaces and install the new thermostat with a new gasket, reinstall the radiator hose, fill with anti-freeze and check for leaks.

Need help locating the thermostat on a 1999 ford taurus station wagon.

Where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine is the thermostat housing. Remove the hose from the housing. Remove the housing, the thermostat will come out with the housing. Be careful to orient the new thermostat exactly the same as the old. If the new thermostat is put in backwards the car will overheat.
Hope this is helpful.
