Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator back to the block. The thermostat is under the connection where the hose meets the block.

How do I get to and remove the thermostat in my 98 mystique


Locate the Thermostat
  • Find the hoses that leave your radiator.
  • Trace the top hose back to your engine.
  • Locate the thermostat housing attached at the end of that hose. Verify the location in your owner's manual, as some manufacturers house the thermostat at the bottom of the radiator rather than the top. This makes removal far more difficult.

Replace the Thermostat Locate the clamp that secures the thermostat to the radiator hose. Unscrew this clamp and gently remove it from the engine. You might see radiator fluid or coolant come out of the hose at this stage, in which case you can catch it in a drip pan and dispose of it later on. Unscrew the bolts that secure the thermostat to its housing. Wipe out the inside of the hose with a rag to ensure it is free of debris. If anything falls into your radiator, it can result in expensive repairs. Replace the gasket. Install the new engine thermostat. Make sure the power unit faces the engine. Replace the bolts to secure the thermostat housing to the radiator hose. Reconnect the hose and tighten the screws in the clamp
