Drain the coolant, undo the thermostat housing and remove the thermostat. Drop it into a pan of boiling water and watch closely. The thermostat should pop open. Take the pan off the boil and watch for about ten minutes, the 'stat should pop closed. If the 'stat does not respond then is is dead and new one is required, along with a gasket. Renew the coolant if rust colored. Top up thoroughly squeezing hoses to encourage air bubble removal.

Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator

Remove this housing

Clean both surfaces

Replace thermostat and gasket

Re-install housing

Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an airlock

Start engine and look for leaks

Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on

Re-check coolant level

Leaking upper radiator hose.


It may be as simple as wiggle the hose & snug the clamp, or snug up bolts at housing.If that doesn't cure it, head over there first chance. Either way, I'd make it over there & let them know. Yes, they should feel responsible to correct the situation.
