HOW TO CHANG THERMOSTAT IN COOLING SYSTEM


The thermostat is located in the housing bolted to the block that the lower hose is attached to.

-Remove the lower hose from the housing.
-Remove the two bolts holding the housing to the block (10mm socket will work).
-Remove the housing from the block.

The new thermostat will come with a cardboard tube. Use it to push down and twist the thermostat to release it from the housing. Install the new thermostat into the housing and then reassemble.

Fill the cooling system and start the vehicle. Let it idle until the cooling fan comes on making sure to top off the coolant reservoir as necessary. Then replace the cap and your good to go.

Where is thermostat located


You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container, and some fresh coolant ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing (water inlet) 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.
