Question about 2008 Hyundai Elantra
Engine is getting hot, if i will remove the thermostat would it not be overheating the engine again?
The thermostat not only allows the normal heat cycle but it also allows the coolant to be able to cool itself before getting returned to the engine block.. If you remove the thermostat then you are not giving the coolant enough time to cool itself before going back into the motor. This will actually make the vehicle run hotter then cooler. I would recommend looking into the lowest temp thermostat available for your vehicle and look for an additive to help cool better..

It is located under the alternator. If you are looking down at the engine, it is to the far left. If you are under the car it is to the far right before the oil pan.

Does the book say 6 quarts? I would put in 5, then run it, then let it settle for a couple minutes, then check it again. The book should be right. That would probably include changing the filter also.

I HAVE A 2008 HYUNDAI ELANTRA. I HAD THIS PROBLEM WHEN I WANTED TO REPLACE MY FACTORY RADIO. I ENDED UP TAKING APART MOST OF MY DASH TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. AFTER ALL SAID AND DONE. I FOUND OUT THAT THE PIECE THAT GOES AROUND THE RADIO JUST SNAPS INTO PLACE. I USED A COUPLE OF FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVERS TO PRY IT OFF. THAT IS IT. IT IS THAT EASY. THE WHOLE CAR JUST SNAPS TOGETHER. THE CAR IS CHEAPLY PUT TOGETHER.
