It is located under the intake manifold. Once alternator is removed the housing is visible. two 10mm bolts hold the housing on.

Hi,
Ther top radiator hose is connected to the thermostat housing. Make sure you get a gasket with your new thermostat.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Overheating...coolent is full. everything is fine think its the thermastat. DOnt know how to fix?


There are any number of things which can cause/contribute to an engine overheating. Some of them:
1. Thermostat stuck closed
2. Restriction/clog in the system (hoses, radiator)
3. Blown headgasket
4. Cracked head/block
5. Water pump not pumping
6. Water pump pully/belt
7. Cooling fan not fanning/turning
8. Restricted airflow through radiator vanes

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue

1997 a4 se overheating.i have changed the thermostat and car is still overheating.cold air is coming from the blower.car drives perfectly otherwise.fan is not coming on.how would i diagnose the problem


Alot of time you have to bleed the cooling system after changing a thermostat it gets an air pocket in it look for a bleeder valve near or on the thermastat housing if so bleed it to get the air out.check the radiator and make sure its full because if you filled it up after changing the thermastat once the thermastat opened after the engine ran awhile well the cooling system needs refilled.
