Question about 1998 Dodge Intrepid
The thermostat is an easy replacement. The part from the part store should be very inexpensive and is very easy to install. IMPORTANT: allow the cars cooling system to completely cool down before starting to work on it. Here are the steps to replace the thermostat:
1. Allow car to cool.
2. Place drain pan under radiator and allow for coolant to drain below the thermostat. Do not completely drain the system unless replacing the fluid.
3. Remove the hose clamp and hose from thermostat housing.
4. Remove the two bolts holding the housing to engine.
5. Remove the thermostat gasket and clean the gasket completely off the engine and thermostat housing.
6. Remove the thermostat and replace with new.
7. Place new gasket on with reassembly.

It is located on the left side of the engine down where the lower rad hose meets the engine block. It is fairly difficult to change.
