How do I replace the thermostat on an unidentified vehicle?


William many vehicles have the thermostat in a similar place, at the base of the top radiator hose. Replacement is as simple as removing the two bolts/nuts that hold the housing to the engine, pulling that housing off, and replacing the thermostat under it.
Be careful to clean the gasket off both the housing and the engine, put the new thermostat in, with a new gasket, and put the nuts/bolts back on.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 ford Taurus SHO?


Trace the top radiator hose back to the engine. Where it ends is the thermostat housing. You'll have to drain your radiator, remove the radiator hose at the housing on the engine side, then there's usually 2 bolts that hold the housing on. remove the housing, remove the thermostat Noting which direction the thermostat is sitting, replace with the new one in the same position, put a new gasket on the thermostat housing and reverse your steps to put it back together. NOTE**** DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING BOLTS*** if you strip them or snap them off you will be looking at a major repair bill.

Thermostat replacement


take the 2 bolts on the thermostat housing out, pull up on the housing, antifreeze will go everywhere, pull the thermostat out, put the new one in, in the same position you pulled the old one out. replace gasket, put the housing back on, put bolts in, fill radiator, start the car warm it up looking for leaks and monitoring coolant level until car is up to temp. you will be able to see current in the coolant with the radiator cap off when the thermostat opens. A couple things to keep in mind. 1 coolant will expand and slowly rise out of the filler neck between open cycles of the thermostat, 2. VERY important keep the cap off the radiator while warming up the car and monitoring coolant levels.

Overheating no noticeable signs that radiator is leaking, no fluid around the water pump to indicate that it may be going bad, temp gauge hits 180 then the fan kicks in...do you think the thermostat may be...


I would put money on the thermostat as a first culprit. Water pumps usually fail in a leaking state rather than in a "not pumping water" state. In the current weather, there will be little harm in running without a thermostat to test it (or even longer if you want to). The thermostat is usually in a housing at the end of the top radiator hose. Unbolt the housing, pull the thermostat, make a new housing gasket out of a cereal packet and take a drive out.

If it works, go buy a new thermostat and gasket at your leisure.

I need to no where and how to replace athermostat on a 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7 engine


Follow top radiator hose to motor. Thermostat is under housing that rad hose is clamped to. Drain antifreeze from rad after it has cooled down. There should be a drain **** on rad bottom. Using proper size socjket and ratchet, take out the bolts holdng housing then remove thermostat. Put new thermostat in same way as old one, put on a new gasket and replace housing. Be careful not to overtighten housing bolts. Refill with new antifreeze.

Replacing a thermostat


Thermostat housing should be at the end of radiator hose going into the engine.
With engine cool, drain coolant from radiator, remove thermostat housing (usually 2 or 3 bolts holding it on) Once removed, remove old thermostat, should pop right out. Using a razor blade, remove any existing gasket material on the therm. housing. Once clean put on new gasket (one side of gasket should have an adhesive,put this side against the engine side of the housing) install new thermostat, Reassemble, fill with coolant.
With the radiator cap off, start the engine, run for a moment (you are "burping" the cooling system) replace radiator cap. Should be good to go.
