Need help on changing thermostat on 2001 kia optima


AutoZone.com lists the following procedure for several engines. If your engine is different, try going back to autozone.com with exact engine spec.


Removal & Installation

1.5L, 1.6L, 1.8L & 2.0L Engines
  1. Drain the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  2. Remove the water inlet fitting, gasket and thermostat.
  3. Clean the gasket mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Place the thermostat in the housing with the jiggle valve facing upward. Install a new thermostat gasket.

    0996b43f802066a0.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Use a new gasket (A) when installing the thermostat (B)-2.0L engine shown
  2. Install the water inlet fitting and tighten to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-26 Nm) for 1.5L, 1.6L and 1.8L engines, or to 11-15 ft. lbs. (15-20 Nm) for 2.0L engines.
  3. Fill the engine with coolant, then start the engine and check for leaks.

2.4L & 2.7L Engines
  1. Drain the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  2. Remove the engine coolant outlet fitting and gasket.
  3. Remove the thermostat.
  4. Clean the gasket mating surfaces.

    0996b43f802066a3.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Thermostat mounting-2.4L engine

To install:
  1. Install the thermostat. Make sure that the flange of the thermostat is correctly seated in the socket of the thermostat housing. If the thermostat is installed in the wrong direction, the bottom of the thermostat will touch the rib inside the intake manifold, making it impossible to seat flange in position
  2. Install a new gasket and the engine coolant outlet fitting. Tighten the fitting bolt to 7-11 ft. lbs. (10-15 Nm) for 2.4L engines or to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm) for 2.7L engines.
  3. Fill the engine with coolant, then start the engine and check for leaks.

Thermostat wont fit currectly using gasket supplied with thermostat-tried O ring-over thermostat leak was visible what do I do?


Hi:
With no thermostat, the thermostat housing should sit flush against the engine mount surface. The outer diameter of the thermostat should drop down into the recess provided and not even interfere with the gasket. Make sure both sides are clean , and all residue is removed. IF the thermostat will not fit into the recess provided, then take your thermostat housing to the place you bought your new thermostat, and have them fit your new one to your housing.

Direction of thermostat? Thermostat housing does not fit with thermostat springs down like most vehicles. Thermostat fits upside down. Whats going on?


On the thermostat it says to rad,which means the direction of the water comes out of the engine towards the radiator through the hose.
