How to fix thermostat housing


In order to answer this question, it is necessary to understand exactly what about the thermostat housing requires repair. Is it corroded, cracked, broken? Are the threads damaged? A photo would be nice as well if possible. We want to help. But your question is just too vague.

Thermostat broken stud


You can replace it. There are several types of screw extractors out there. They usually come with a drill bit for the correct size extractor. You will need to find out what size stud it is. Once you have determined that chose the appropriate size drill bit and extractor. Lowes or home depot carry them. Drill into the center of the broken stud. Be careful not to drill too deep as you might damage the thermostat housing. Once you have drill into the stud use the extractor to remove the broken stud. Napa auto parts or autozone should carry the stud size and length that you need. Purchase a stud and 2 plain nuts that match the thread of the stud. The nuts will be used to install the stud. Thread The stud into the thermostat housing. Once it is tight by hand stop. Thread the first plain nut onto the stud far enough so that you can get the second nut onto the stud and have a thread or two sticking out of the second nut. Once the two nuts are on the stud hold the first nut with a wrench and tighten the second nut tight against it. This will allow you to finish installing the stud. Once the nuts are tightened together, use a wrench (on the second nut only) to run the stud down into the thermostat housing. Do not overtighten the stud as you may crack the housing. Run the stud down into the housing unit the stud is the same height as the existing stud. Then use a wrench to hold the second nut and loosen the fist nut away from the second nut. Remove both nuts from the stud. You stud is now installed and you can reinstall the thermostat. If you have any questions you can email me at dplumb1@me.com Good luck

: where is the thermostat located on a 2002 buick century custom


For 2002 Buick Century 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl

zjlimited_444.jpg

Fig. The thermostat on this 3.1L is mounted horizontally and uses an offset housing/water outlet

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container, to a level below the thermostat.
  3. It is usually possible to leave the radiator hose attached and simply remove the thermostat housing (also called a water outlet) and flex the radiator hose enough to service the thermostat. It is good practice, however, to remove the radiator hose so the thermostat housing can be given a thorough cleaning. Debris on the thermostat housing sealing surface can cause leaks.
  4. Some applications may have electrical connections to sensors which mount in the thermostat housing. Use care when detaching these connectors.
  5. Unfasten the thermostat housing bolts and remove the housing.
  6. Remove the thermostat by simply pulling out. Discard the gasket.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Make sure the sealing surfaces on both the thermostat housing gasket flange and the intake manifold are clean and free of corrosion damage. It is good practice to run a thread cutting tap or a clean bolt into the threaded holes in the manifold to clean out old sealer and dirt. The threads should be clean so the thermostat cover clamps the gasket evenly at assembly.
  2. Position the thermostat in the intake manifold. Make sure it is seated.
  3. Position a new gasket over the thermostat. If no gasket is used, apply a 0.125 in. (3mm) bead of RTV sealer to the thermostat housing and install the housing. Lightly lubricate the bolts with clean engine oil. Torque to 18-20 ft. lbs. (23-27 Nm).
  4. If removed, attach the radiator hose to the thermostat housing.
  5. Refill the engine with the proper mix of DEX-COOL®and water. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

Good luck (remember to rate this answer).

Were is my thermostat in my 1997 eagle vision


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable. CAUTION
    Do not remove the radiator pressure cap with the cooling system hot and under pressure. Serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant can result.
  2. Allow cooling system to cool completely. Place a pan under the radiator drain, located at the lower right side of the radiator. Open the valve to drain the cooling system to a level just below the thermostat. Do NOT drain the cooling system completely, unless the coolant is being changed. Close the valve.
  3. Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing and if necessary disconnect the hose from the housing. Fig. 1: Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing 88173p06.jpg
    Fig. 2: If necessary, separate the upper hose from the thermostat housing (it is not required) 88173p11.jpg

  4. Remove the thermostat bolts and housing. Fig. 3: Loosen the thermostat housing bolt with the proper size socket 88173p07.jpg

  5. Remove the thermostat and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean both gasket sealing surfaces. Fig. 4: Separate the housing to access the thermostat 88173p08.jpg
    Fig. 5: Lift the thermostat out . . . 88173p09.jpg
    Fig. 6: . . . then clean the mating area 88173p10.jpg
    To install:
  6. Clean the thermostat housing bolts well. On any engine, bolts that thread into the water jacket are subject to rust and corrosion. A bolt with rust or debris in the threads can easily strip out the threads in an aluminum manifold requiring a time-consuming thread repair operation. Clean the bolts well and lightly lubricate before installation.
  7. Install the thermostat into the recess in the intake manifold. Place a new gasket, moistened with water, on the water inlet mating surface on the intake manifold.
  8. Install the thermostat housing over the gasket and thermostat and tighten the mounting bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) on the 3.3L engine and 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm) on the 3.5L engine.
  9. Connect the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing and tighten the radiator hose clamp.
  10. Refill and bleed the cooling system.

    Intake manifold sealant repair now leaking maybe oil? coolant b4


    You need to remove the thermostat housing again. Then you will have to extract the bolts you broke off. You will need to drill and tap them so you can use an easy out to remove the broken bolts from the threads. Then you can clean up both mating surfaces and replace the gasket and the thermostat. Check to make sure you did not crack the thermostat housing or you may have another leak when finished. They are usually aluminum and break easily if too much pressure is applied or they are corroded and weak.
