Follow the top radiator hose to the motor..there you will find a clamp.on the end of the hose. take it loose and move it out of your way. there are two bolts that hold the housing in place that you will need to pull and there you will find the thermostat

ON A 2003 ZETEC SE IS THE THERMOSTAT BEHIND ALTERNATER IF SO IS IT EASY TO REMOVE ALTERNATER


I just replaced the T-stat on my 2003 Focus ZX3 last weekend. I'm a novice; it was easy. You shouldn't have to remove anything except the T-stat housing. It's located on the right side of the block, across from the battery. You need a 10 mm wrench to remove the three bolts holding the housing onto the block. Removing the four hoses was the most difficult part. When they're off, the housing unit slides under and out. The T-stat and O-ring cost $20.

Thermostat


you have to drain the radiator there should be either a screw or a yellow plug on the bottom of the radiator. then from there you pull apart the thermostat housing you will need a new thermostat and gasket then gasket sealent. the you pull the hose from the housing then take a paint scraper and scratch all the crossion off then pull the housing off and then the thermostat and put everything back the same way

How old is the battery? Are the connections clean and tight? Have your starting, charging system check and replace your thermostat. Good luck to you.

Where is alternator located on 1996 cadillac deville? how do you replace alternator on 1996 cadillac deville?


The alternator will be located in the front of the engine on the drivers side. To replace it you must loosen the idler pulley and remove the serpintine belt, once the belt is off you must unhook any wires goin to the alternater and then there are two bolts at the bottom of the alternater holding it in place. Remove those and the alternater is loose then it may take some jockying back and forth to get it out. Obviously at this point the new one can go in the same way the old one came out.

How do you take out an old alternator and install a new alternator in a 97 honda civic


From the top of the car remove the slide and anchor bolt from the alternater bracket. remove your 3 or 4 pin plug and diconnect the pos power line beside the 3 or 4 pin plug ( on the back of the alternater). now raise the car and from below remove the lower bolt that allows the alternater to swing back and forth. the bolt fits through the housing of the alternater. remove the belt. now the alternater is free. this lower bolt that was just removed attaches to a bracket bolted to the block. remove this bracket and the alternater will slide out of the bottom of the car. complete the above steps in reverse to install new part.
