Follow the lower radiator up to the engine. It's in the housing at the end of it.
If you're overheating/loosing coolant, you may have a leaking heater core.

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.

How to get the thermostat housing to disconnect. We have taken all bolts loose but will not come apart.


Not sure if you have the 2.7L or the 3.5L so I'll post for both sizes for you:


2.7L Removal procedures
  1. Drain cooling system.
  2. Remove radiator lower hose from thermostat housing.
  3. Remove nuts from heater tube flange studs.
  4. Loosen starter bolt at heater tube bracket.
  5. Pull heater tube out of thermostat housing and position out of the way.
  6. Remove bolt and two studs.
  7. Remove thermostat housing, O-ring and thermostat.
  8. Remove thermostat housing bolts.

3.5L Removal procedures

  1. Drain cooling system.
  2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  3. Disconnect electrical connectors from engine oil and power steering pressure switches.
  4. Disconnect radiator and heater hoses from thermostat housing.
  5. Remove thermostat housing bolts.
  6. Remove housing, thermostat, and gasket.
NOTE:
The OEM thermostat is staked in place at the factory. To ensure proper seating of replacement thermostat, carefully remove the bulged metal from the thermostat housing using a suitable hand held grinder. It is not necessary to restake the replacement thermostat into the thermostat housing

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante. It seems that when I am driving at higher speeds the engine runs a little warm. I am not overhearting but want to address issue before a problem. What could be causing...


There are several things to check:
  • Low coolant level
  • Leaking radiator hose; a small leak under pressure would cause you to lose coolant
  • Leaking radiator line (located on the bottom of the radiator
  • Bad thermostat; A bad thermostat will not allow sufficient coolant to flow to keep the engine cool
