im not shure. if you look at the bottom radiator hose on the passenger side of the car. where it connects to the motor there should be two bolts. you take them out and the thermostat is in there.

I am trying to change the thermostat in my 1989 nissan maxima. im not sure if i put it in the top or bottom hose. please help. i need to find a diagram but am having trouble locating one.

Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block. There should be a roundish metal housing at the end of it. Put a bowl underneath to catch any fluid and take off the bolts(try a 10mm socket or wrench) that hold the thermostat housing to the head. Then just pull out the thermostat and scrape off the old gasket. Put the new thermostat on spring-side toward engine, just like the old one. Make sure to use a new gasket! Then push the housing back over it and tighten the bolts. Add any anti-freeze necessary and your done!

The car is over heating but it has coolant in it i have to keep the air running for it not to over heat. i was told that it needs a thermostat but im not sure if thats it

To be on the safe side, change the thermostat, cheaper than replacing an engine, also check and see if the radiator electric cooling fans come on, if not, either the coolant temperature sensor is bad, or the fans themselves.

Car is overheating, im trying to change the water pump and the thermostat. but i cant get the water pump off, and i cant find the thermostat

The thermostat is at the back of the engine, the upper radiator hose is connected to the thermostat housing, there are 3 10mm bolts holding it on. I'd check for maybe a missed bolt on the water pump, I know there is alot of bolts holding it on.

My 1990 Buick Lesabre heater does not work all that good ! Takes a long time before I feel the heat ... really long time when its cold outside ! Is it the thermostat ?? Is it easy to replace ? What else...

Most likely the thermostat sticking...
The thermostat could also be missing!
That would create some of the symptom you describe.

Not too hard to replace. It is at the end of the large radiator hose where it connects to the engine.
1. Drain radiator
2. Undo the two bolts that hold down the thermostat housing
3. remove thermostat and remove all old gasket and gasket sealant residue on the engine and housing
4. replace thermostat in the correct orientation (pointy side UP) with the new gasket and sealant
5. Tighten down housing and re-fill the radiator.

It could also be a clogged heater core. It may only be circulating enough heated water to work sometimes and the water is returning to the radiator via the "bypass" hone.

Hope this helps!

if the engine is a 2.4 liter then the thermostat is below the water pump in back of the engine. the black plastic housing with o-ring is just an outlet for coolant to flow through. when under the car the pipe that looks flat under the engine is the pipe you are looking for. to replace: remove the exhaust shield and use a long extention to remove the two small bolts below water pump. also remove the bolt holding pipe to the oil pan under car.
