You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing which is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts (not the hose) and lift the housing to expose the thermostat (may require a little prying with a screwdriver or similar tool). Note how the old thermostat is fitted (which end is up), lift it out of the engine, and then remove all traces of gasket from the housing and the engine. Install the new thermostat and gasket, replace the bolts, add coolant as necessary, and you're done.

Temp sensor on 1998 toyota tacoma 3400


The engine coolant temperature sensor is usually located on the thermostat housing. This sensor controls the readings of the coolant temperature gauge in your vehicle when the ignition switch is ON .Here's a link to the sensor. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Drain the coolant from the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the engine wiring protector from the brackets.
  3. Disconnect the sensor wire.
  4. Using a 19mm deep socket, remove the sensor and gasket.
To install:
  1. Apply a thin coat of Loctite or equivalent to the switch. By hand, carefully thread the switch into the engine. If resistance is felt at all, remove the switch and inspect the threads for any damage. Continue to install the switch. Once installed, tighten to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  2. Connect the sensor wiring.
  3. Install the engine wire protector to the brackets.
  4. Refill the coolant. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Sounds like it has an issue with vent/climate control doors inside the car. Have a mechanic scan the climate system for codes or consult a repair manual for the procedure to check system for codes manually.
