Not always. If you have a KA24E (2.4L 4 cyl) engine, the thermostat is located where the lower hose connects to the engine. I have had to change mine. It's easiest to get to if you remove the power steering pump and set it to the side. The thermostat housing is directly below where the PS pump mounts.

How do I get to and remove the thermostat in my 98 mystique


Locate the Thermostat
  • Find the hoses that leave your radiator.
  • Trace the top hose back to your engine.
  • Locate the thermostat housing attached at the end of that hose. Verify the location in your owner's manual, as some manufacturers house the thermostat at the bottom of the radiator rather than the top. This makes removal far more difficult.

Replace the Thermostat Locate the clamp that secures the thermostat to the radiator hose. Unscrew this clamp and gently remove it from the engine. You might see radiator fluid or coolant come out of the hose at this stage, in which case you can catch it in a drip pan and dispose of it later on. Unscrew the bolts that secure the thermostat to its housing. Wipe out the inside of the hose with a rag to ensure it is free of debris. If anything falls into your radiator, it can result in expensive repairs. Replace the gasket. Install the new engine thermostat. Make sure the power unit faces the engine. Replace the bolts to secure the thermostat housing to the radiator hose. Reconnect the hose and tighten the screws in the clamp

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 ford windstar?


Just follow the top hose that comes from the radiator,and it should be at the end of the hose, If you have 3.0L engine then there should be two blots on top of the Thermostat cover and one at the bottom,And if you got 3.8 L engine then there will be two,One in each side. Good luck

How do I remove the entire thermostat housing on my 1998 acura 1.6 litre engine


Welcome to Fixya

Thermostats almost always reside in a housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose. Drain coolant first, then loosen radiator hose to access thermostat housing. If you can't find the housing, consult your vehicle service manual for location. Loosen the bolts that hold down the thermostat housing. Remove the housing to reveal the thermostat. Use a scraper to remove old gasket material from all mounting surfaces. Place new gasket on housing. Use a small amount of grease or adhesive to hold it in place during reassembly. Reconnect all hoses. Close radiator petcock. Refill cooling system with recommended 50/50 blend of water and coolant. Run engine and heater to purge air from cooling system. Recheck the coolant level once engine is cool.

Where is the thermostat located between top


On 1998, 4.6 32 valve engines, the thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.

The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia. and one is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir. Access to the thermostat is from the bottom side. You will need an 8mm socket to remove the two bolts. Removal of the bottom radiator hose is mandatory.

Hope helps with this (remmeber rated this help).

1998 honda passport themostat location ?


It's on the top front of your engine inside a rounded housing. Follow the top radiator hose - the thing it clamps to is the thermostat housing. I think it's held on by three bolts - two top and one bottom.
