How do u replace the thermostat? Where is it located?


Locate your thermostat if you haven't already done so.

Most thermostats are located where the top radiator hose joins the engine, so these steps deal with this type. If your thermostat is in the bottom radiator hose, the principle is the same.


2Place a bucket under where you're going to be working.

Some fluid will escape, so have a clean two-gallon container handy to catch it, and return the fluid to the radiator when you finish the job.


Remove the clamp.

Follow you radiator hose to where your thermostat is located.


4Pull off the hose.

This is when some fluid will escape and drain into your bucket.


5Remove the bolts that hold the thermostat housing in place and lift out the old thermostat.

Compare the new thermostat and its gasket with the old ones. If the new thermostat and the gasket that's included with it aren't exactly like the old ones, go back to the store for the right ones.


6Lay the new gasket in place.

There's a gasket around the hole where the thermostat was located - take that off, too. Scrape off any pieces of gasket that may be stuck, but be sure not to let these pieces fall into the hole!


7Drop in and secure the new thermostat.

Make sure to place the spring-side down; then replace the bolts.


Replace the hose and hose clamp.

If your hose clamp uses screws, screw it down tightly but not tight enough to cut into the hose.


Replace whatever fluid ran out of the hose by pouring it from the container into the radiator fill hole or coolant reservoir.

Be sure not to pour it on the ground where children and animals can be endangered by it. If you accidentally spill fluid, wipe it up thoroughly before hosing down the area, and then place the rags in a sealed plastic bag before disposing of them.

Need to change thermostat


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 golf v1 1999 1.6,car been standing 6 months worked fine now water not circulating!!!!!!


Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!
First time you might check the thermostat operating.
The thermostat location for VW Golf 1.6 is inside of coolant thermostat housing placed on back side of the cylinder head. See pictures below.
Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Where is the PCV valve on a 2000 Mercury Mystique 2.0?


Here are some pictures showing where the pcv valve is located on the 2000 Mercury Mystique, 4 cylinder.

First we see the engine compartment:
cyborg1957.jpg
Next we will see a closeup of the area circled in red.

cyborg1957_0.jpg
here I have outlined the PCV valve in red and the thermostat housing is circled in green. The pipe connected to the PCV is rigid metal. It is screwed to the motor, so you must remove the screw before you can pull on the pipe in order to extract the PCV valve. The screw is located underneath the thermostat housing, so the housing must be removed in order to get at the screw.
cyborg1957_4.jpg
The head of the screw is inside the orange circle. I had to use a torx bit. Yours may be a phillips head. Here are a couple of closeups:
cyborg1957_5.jpgcyborg1957_6.jpg
VICTORY!!!!!
cyborg1957_7.jpg
After I replaced the valve, my car was still surging at stoplights, so I started doing more troubleshooting. Lying under the car, looking at the side of the engine closest to the firewall, I saw a hole in a rubber tube. I crawled out and located this hose. If you follow the metal tube that the PCV valve is held in, you will find that it is inserted into a rubber hose after you get past the thermostat housing and it continues on to the back side of the engine. It turns out that this is the hose that I observed while lying on my back under the car. Apparently there is a bend in the hose and at that bend it fails due to heat buildup. Oh, well.

When I went to the dealer, his 2000 Mystique diagrams did not show this part, but he made a guess and it was the right part. Make sure and take the one from your car to the dealership for comparison. After replacing the piece of hose, the car runs perfectly :) .

Replace thermostat


Follow your "top"radiator to where connects with the engine. The themostat housing is right there. Two screws usually hold it down. They may be metric, either 10mm. or 12mm. or they are American 1/2 inch. Remove them and make sure that you don't lose the large o-ring that seals the housing.I dont think it has a gasket, most are o-rings nowadays which makes thing much simpler. Remove the old thermostat with a long thin screwdriver. And place the new one (very important) with the "A" shape facing upward. Then replace the housing making sure to screw the screws back in at an even count(go a few on one the a few on the other) till tightened. P.S. there's usually no need to remove the hose from the housing. It will swing up and away.If the thermostat stays in the hose pry it out the same way as previously discribed and put back into the engine block again with the "A" shape facing upward. Hope you do well, Thanks Dana

Over heats


Hope you didn't run your car much when it overheated. this could mean trouble if you did. But as suggested, replace the thermostat.drain the coolant if it has any left, below the thermostat level. It is located at the end of one of the radiator hoses . the housing has a bleeder screw at the outlet of the housing. then remove the housing. the thermostat is located underneath. be careful to replace it the same direction. Clean the contact points on the engine and the housing.And place a little bit of silicone gasket sealer on the gasket and the housing . Make sure the thermostat is settled on the engine part. Carefully replace the housing. And reinstall everything back. refill with coolant half/half water and coolant.Start the car and let it heat up. Then bleed the system with the bleeder screw turning it counter clockwise until all that comes out is coolant. refill radiator again and repeat. Until radiator is full.

Thermostat for vw passat 1995 vr6


I have found the thermostat- it is located at the right end of the engine block- up high- follow the radiator hose from the radiator to the engine- the thermostat is right there. There are 3 allen-head screws (5mm hex) that attach the thermostat cover to the thermostat housing. The issue I am having is that I can't reach on of the screws. I need help.
