Go to a auto parts store and get a screw extractor, usually they come a set.
drill a small hole in the center of the broken bolt shalf. (big enough to insert the screw extractor.
very carefully back the screw out.

Step by step replacing the thermostat


Break free 2 bolts on thermostat housing, loosen hose going into housing and clamp, it will leak some antifreeze. Once the housing is taken off block clean off old gasket material from both surfaces. The block and housing, be careful not to scratch the surfaces. No sharp pointy objects, aluminum is soft. Then take the old thermostat out and put in the new one. Put gasket in place ,align housing and put , bolts in by hand first, so it doesn't cross thread. Just snug bolts and top off system with antifreeze . Start engine ,put on heat and run until thermostat opens. Check for leaks, tighten bolts 1/4 turn should be fine. Add antifreeze in overflow bottle if needed.

I broke the bottom bolt on tha thermastat housing connected 2 the block


You have to take the thermostat housing back off and then you can use a "left hand twist" drill bit to drill the center of the bolt that you broke off. Most of the time the drill will "grab" the bolt and unscrew it for you. If not then drill deep enough to use an EZ out.

Thermostat is acting up is it easy to change


YES! DRAIN THE RADIATOR! THE THERMASTAT IS AT THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE! REMOVE THE HOSE! AND THE THERMASTAT HOUSING HAS TWO BOLTS HOLDING IT ON! REMOVE THE TWO BOLTS, AND THE HOUSING! CLEAN THE AREA AROUND THE BASE OF THE HOUSING! SCRAP OFF THE OLD GASKET FROM THE HOUSING, AND ON THE ENGINE! REPLACE THE GASKET WITH A NEW ONE! PLACE THE NEW THERMASTAT IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS THE OLD ONE COMES OUT! REPLACE THE HOUSING, TIGHTEN THE BOLTS, AND PUT THE RADIATOR HOSE BACK ON, RETIGHTEN IT, AND FILL WITH ANTIFREEZE, AND CHECK FOR LEAKS!

Problem..went to reinstall thermastat..was no thermastat in car. the housing was cracked, broken and is leaking antifreeze..why did the air work if no thermastat was in it???


Thermostat holds water in motor until it heats up to thermostats temp. While thermostat is closed (holding water back) it allows water in radiator to cool. When thermostat opens cool water enters engine through lower hose, hot water into radiator. When cool water hits thermostat it closes again and repeats the cycle. Your A/C is not dependant on heated water as when air is on, heater valve in heater hose is closed. Get yourself a new housing, gasket & thermostat and fix it right. An added bonus is you'll probably get better gas mileage with correct thermostat.

How do I change a thermostat in a 2001 New Beatle VW


First you should drain the antifreez by opening the drain plug located by the lower radiator hose. Then take the upper radiator hose off. Then take the 2 bolts out that hold the housing on. Remove the housng and there is your thermastat. Accordind to VW they want you to put antifreeze on the o-ring I use RTV a little extra help sealing just don't put a lot on. The book says to put thermastat in housing and turn 1/4 turn to right. I'm not sure why but thats what it says. TIP If you close the drain plug now and put as much antifreeze in as you can makes it easyer to get air pockets out later. Mount your therrmostast housing back to block and tighten bolts. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can them put upper radiator hose back on. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can. Now come the hard part sometimes getting all the air out of the cooling system. Put the radiator cap on but loose run the engine till the cooling fan kicks on but keep checking the coolant level. WARNING ANTIFREEZE WILL GET ABOVE 200 DEGREES
both upper and lower radiator hoses should be hot and radiator full. If both hoses aren't hot you have an air pocket that you have to get out. To do this run the engine a couple minutes after the fan kicks on then turn engine off for 5 or 10 minutes and start over keep doing this till both hoses get hot and the air the fan is blowing is hot. Once this is doe yout ready to go. I hose off any antifreeze that got one car so if you see antifreeze under car you know something is leaking and not what was spilled. 254a047.pnga06a9b1.png

Where is the thermostate located on a 1998 cadillac catera 3.0 v6 engine


Hi Friend:

To Locate your thermastat, Open your Hood and look down at the top of your radiator.You'll see a Top Raditor Hose that goes from your radiator to your Thermastat Housing.

You'll see a Hose clamp on the Thermastat housing .

NOTE: before you loosen the Hose Clamp Make sure you your car is cooled down and remove your radiator cap to release any pressure that is in your system.

After the Hose is off you'll see a Domed shaped Housing that is your Thermastat Housing. Remove the Bolts that Hold the Housing on and Seals the Cooling System.From Leaking out of the Housing.

After removing the Housing you'll see your Thermastat .Just remove it and Clean up all old gasket Material so you can replace the gasket with your new one .But put in your new thermastat 1st.

Then make sure you seal the gasket with Gasket Glue. And Replace the Housing Bolts and Tighten up good and Sung.

Put back on your hose then clamp.And Refill your Radiator with Coolant.

This will get your new thermastat in and get you Ready to go .

Leaking from conection at gasket and thermastat


The gasket may have slipped out of place while placing the bolts in the holes. Remove it again. Make sure the thermostat is orientated correctly. Apply a gasket tack onto the housing apply the gasket and let dry until it will stay in place. Carefully place the housing in place. Start all three bolts before tightening them. Also just in case, check the thermostat housing for cracks, and make sure the hose end is not damaged from the hose clamp, or when you removed the hose. Sometimes people try to pry the hose loose with a flat tip screwdriver and unknowingly damage the hose. If you follow the steps above you should correct the problem. Good luck.
