Fallow the "UPPER" Radiator Hose from the Radiator to the Engine Cylinder Head, The Thermostat Housing is the Unit that the UPPER Radiator Hose Connects to. Theres is 1 BOLT (TOP) & 1 NUT (BOTTOM) that you Remove to Gain Access to the Thermostat itself. Hoping this Helps you out There . Have A Great Day.

Where to fine the thermostat on the radiator of a 2004 kia rio


The thermostat will be on the engine block. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine-the end of the hose clamps on to the thermostat housing-the thermostat is under the housing. Remove the bolts of the housing and pull it off to see the thermostat. Of course, the coolant must be drained first, or you will have a big mess to clean up.

Kia Rio overheating although everything seems ok


Possible early signs of a water pump problem. A failing waterpump will circulate coolent when the RPMS are high but when you slow down, so does the waterpump, thereby causing overheating.
