Hi Stephanie, it is hard not knowing the model of your car but with all motors the thermostat is located in the cooling system on the discharge side, this is where the top radiator hose attaches, some are even in the top hose in a round metal housing

Removal & Installation

1.5L, 1.6L, 1.8L & 2.0L Engines

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

  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.

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.

Dodge ram50 1992 swap 2,4L to 2,6L


Yes, the engine mounts and bell housings are the same.
The swap should be straight forward, however be sure to swap all the vaccum controls and emission system from the 2.6L.

Have fun!
Cheers, Jay

99 cavalier engine

I just changed a 2.4 in my 96. I pulled the whole thing because I coudn't get at the converter to flywheel bolts. After reading further, I saw information to pull the trans out through the drivers wheel well without the engine. They removed the starter to access the flywheel bolts to the converter.
I haven't tried it but it would make sense and it does make it a lot easier. Without the trans attached, you wouldn't need to remove the master cylinder or beat the sh-t out of the battery tray to get the think out.
