SOURCE: THERMOSTAT REPLACEMENT

You will need a 1/2" socket with ratchet, and a 1/2" wrench for the actual removal of the thermostat housing. First, remove the air duct from the air filter housing and the air intake connection to the engine. Set aside. Next, remove the upper radiator hose from where it connects to the engine by loosening the hose clamp. At the other end of this part where the hose was removed from is the "L" shape that houses the thermostat and bolts to the engine. This part (housing) has two bolts. The top bolt will require the use of an extension on your ratchet which you will need to insert between the water bypass pipe and the exhaust heat shield before coupling with the 1/2" socket. Loosen the top bolt. The bottom bolt will require the use of the 1/2" wrench, as the socket will not fit due to the location of the heat shield. NOTE: the bottom bolt only needs to be LOOSENED and not removed, as the housing has an open "C" at the lower bolt location allowing the housing to pivot upward from that bolt. After removing the top bolt and loosening the lower bolt, you can pivot the "pipe" end of the housing downward and carefully maneuver the housing out of its location. You should now see the thermostat. Clean surfaces of the engine and housing well. Insert the new thermostat with the "spring" into the engine and the "bell" outward. Be sure the seal is seated properly into its socket in the engine. Position the housing carefully, making sure not to move the thermostat out of position. Reassembly is the reverse of removal. In my case, I did not use any gasket seal. The thermostat has a rubber seal on it which works well on its own. Adding gasket seal may make removing the housing in the future more difficult

SOURCE: Aloha,have 98 base mustang, overheating after many replacements

Do the radiator fans come on? Turn on the A/C which should start the fans automatically. Does that stop the overheating? Replace the temperature sensor if engine heat doesn't turn on the fans (A/C off). The water pump can be checked by removing the thermostat and lowering the water level in the radiator until the tubes are exposed at the top. With the engine cold, start it and watch for water being pumped into the radiator (it should be a fair quantity), which points to an effective water pump. Shut off the engine, replace the thermostat, and refill with coolant.

How to flush coolant from a 2003 holden vectra zc


Disconnect upper and lower radiator hoses while vehicle running. Insert water hose on upper hose and let it run water until you no longer see coolant coming out. Remember to have heaters running to also clean heater core.
Once clear water comes out of lower hose, turn vehicle off and re-attach both hoses. Fill with proper coolant and run vehicle with heaters on. Take for a drive to remove any air from system. Then top off with coolant.

Need diagram of engine for 2002 cavalier z24


Its the upper radiator hose should be located topside beside the engine oil dipstick,any smaller hoses you have running into the radiator are heater hoses, the lower radiator hose is where coolant enters from radiator into engine and is pumped up with water pump thru water jackets in engine and eventually returns thru the upper radiator hose which is most prone to damage due to splitting and cracking, I hope this helped.

Holden Barina 1996 Car is overheating in minutes, thermostat and heater tap have recently been replaced, coolant level is full, fan fuse is ok what could be the problem?


Hi! Was the thermostat and other items replaced due to this overheating? you say coolant level full? maybe your header tank is full but the system isn't? Try bleeding the system. From cold, start the engine with radiator/header tank cap OFF stay with the vehicle and have some very warm water handy. DON'T look over the filler but watch it as the car gets to operating temperature if the water drops drastically top it up with warm water again stay with the car it may take a long time to level out. If the car is bubbling furiously and doesn't want to settle then possible HEAD GASKET Failure or Water pump.
Does your oil look milky on the dipstick? is there an excessive amount of water coming out of the exhaust? are your hoses swelling with radiator/header tank cap on at operating temp?
Sorry to be the possible bearer of bad tiding if the Gasket has gone, but better to sort it now than cause irreprable damage?
