Anyone know where the thermostat is located on 2005 Dodge magnum 3.5L

Just follow the upper radiator hose. It will lead right to the thermostat housing which should have 3 bolts holding the housing on. Thermostat is directly underneath.

I have 1997 dodge caravan. I think I need to replace the thermostat. Where is it located?

It is located at the end of the large top hose where it connects to the engine.
There are two bolts holding the thermostat housing.

Drain radiator enough so that there is no spill at that level.
Remove the housing, Remove thermostat and scrape off the old gasket and gasket sealant from the housing and engine manifold.

Replace thermostat (pointy side UP) and apply sealant to both sides of the gasket. (I prefer Permatex #2 - non-hardening sealant)

Hope this helps!

I need a diagram of the location of the thermostat in a 1996 Dodge Caravan

Follow the top radiator hose to the engine. This is where the thermostat housing is located. Remove the bolts and take out the thermostat. When you get your new thermostat, get one from Autozone with a jiggle valve. The jiggle valve should be oriented near the top of the housing (the thermostat is not perfectly round, you'll have to play with it a little to get it to seat). Install with the spring side facing the engine and the gasket on the engine side of the housing. You can use some spray adhesive to keep the gasket in place while you install the thermostat.

Where is the thermostat located?

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain and drain the cooling system to just below the thermostat level. Close the drain.
  3. Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing, then remove the housing.
  4. Remove the thermostat and discard the gasket. 0900c15280042100.jpgThermostat installation detail—3.0L engine 0900c15280042101.jpgThermostat installation detail—3.3L and 3.8L engines
To install:
  1. Clean the housing mating surfaces.
  2. Dip the new gasket in clean water and place it on the water box surface.
  3. Center the thermostat on the gasket, in the water box. 0900c15280042102.jpgRemove the radiator hose from the waterneck by loosening the hose clamp . . . 0900c15280042103.jpg. . . then loosen and remove the waterneck housing retaining bolts
  4. Make certain the bolt threads are clean. Threaded bolt holes exposed to coolant are subject to corrosion and should be cleaned with a small wire brush or correct size thread-cutting tap. Install the housing, making sure the thermostat is still in the recess, and tighten the retaining bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm) for 3.0L engine or to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) for 3.3L and 3.8L engines. Reconnect the upper radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system with a clean 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze and water. 0900c15280042104.jpgLift the waterneck housing off of the lower intake manifold, then . . . 0900c15280042105.jpg. . . remove the thermostat out of its mounting flange
  7. Make sure the radiator is full and start the vehicle
