How do I replace the thermostat? Is it something I can do my self with no car repair experience?


The short answer is yes you can do this repair with little repair experience. Locate the upper radiator hose and follow it back to the block, assuming you have already gone and picked up the new thermostat and a seal and form-a-gasket. Once you locate this point on the engine where the upper radiator hose connects to the block you need to remove the radiator hose from the engine. After removing the hose, get the proper sized socket to remove the 2 to 3 retaining bolts that hold this mount to the engine and remove it. Under that piece you will find the thermostat. Take it out, paying attention to the direction the old thermostat is installed, clean off the old seal and sealing compound. Place the new thermostat in place then apply a thin bead of Form-A-Gasket to the cover piece and carefully lay the seal in place on that, make sure you line up the mounting holes. Place a bead of Form-A-Gasket on the motor side and then replace the thermostat cover and radiator hose mount. Once you have it tightened down securely re-attach the hose and fill the radiator. Test driver the vehicle after letting everything sit for about 30 minutes if you find a leak tighten the bolts near the leak to seal it up and the job is finished. Should take about an hour with drying time and test driving.

Steering wheel changes


Here is the simple steps to change the old steering wheel and install the new one.

Remove the Original Steering Wheel

1.Read instructions that come with the steering wheel, and gather the following tools: screwdriver, pliers and a puller.
2.Point wheels straight ahead.
3.Disconnect battery or pull horn fuse before removing the old wheel. This prevents the horn from shorting out or blowing during installation.
4.Remove the horn mechanism by doing one or more of the following steps: Press down on the horn cap or ring and turn; remove the emblem cap from its snapped-in position by grabbing it and pulling it toward you or prying it loose; or if the horn ring is secured by screws that are concealed in the rear side of the wheel spokes, use a screwdriver to remove the screws and the ring.
5.Remove horn wire or spring-loaded metal plunger from plastic housing by either pulling straight out on the metal plunger or, on most models, by twisting the plastic sleeve to the left and then pulling out. Cut the wire off the plastic sleeve and keep the sleeve for later use.
6.Remove the shaft-nut retainer clip, if it is present, and keep for later use. Remove the shaft nut, which holds the wheel to the shaft.
7.Mark the shaft at the twelve o'clock position so that you will know where to position the top of the new wheel.
8.Insert a conventional puller into the two tapped holes which appear in the hub of the old wheel and pull off the steering shaft.
9.Remove the original wheel.

Installing the New Steering Wheel

1.Place the small tubular metal sleeve down over the steering shaft.
2.Position hub on splined shaft, making certain that the shaft is properly positioned using the mark you made in step 7. You may have to rotate the plastic horn contact tube slightly to align it with the appropriate hole through the hub.
3.Insert plastic sleeve and spring from step 5 without wire into plastic horn housing. If the plastic sleeve extends above the top bolt surface of the custom hub, cut down the sleeve so that it is 1/8-inch below the top of the hub. Remove sleeve.
4.Insert through the plastic sleeve the wire lead that was supplied in the wheel kit. One end will not pass through the sleeve. This bell-shaped end will go into the horn contact housing. Insert the sleeve and wire into the housing and lock into position.
5.Route wire around the hub from the ten o'clock position to about the two o'clock position to properly align wheel. Position post cover and wheel on hub. Make certain that the wire lead passes through the appropriate holes in the two o'clock position. Using the three shoulder bolts provided, fasten the hub, post cover and wheel together, but do not tighten.
6.Check wheel for proper positioning. If correct, reinstall the shaft nut from step 6 and tighten. Reinstall shaft-nut retainer clip. If the retainer does not fit into the groove on the shaft, tighten the nut until it will fit as originally located.
7.Remove shoulder bolts and reinstall them through the retainer ring with the fiber side toward you. Tighten the shoulder bolts with caution - excess torque will result in damage to the hub. The shaft nut, if correctly tightened, will firmly hold the hub and wheel assembly on the shaft.
8.Connect wire lead to the connector on the retainer ring. Position spring on center nut. Align the dimples of the horn cap with reliefs in fiber material and push into the dimples past the fiber. Turn cap left or right until tight.
9.Reconnect battery or replace fuse.

How does the thermostat go in. Tip up or down?


Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.
CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.
  1. Locate the thermostat. This is located in a housing on the engine side of the upper radiator hose for all engines except the 4.7L. On the 4.7L engine, the thermostat is located on the engine side of the lower radiator hose.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable (both batteries on diesels).
  3. Drain the engine coolant from the block until the level is below the thermostat.
  4. On V-10 engines, remove the support rod.
  5. On most V-6 and V-8 models, the alternator must be removed or repositioned for access to the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  7. Disconnect any sensors fitted to the thermostat housing.
  8. Remove the retaining bolts from the thermostat housing. Note the lengths and location of each bolt for ease of installation.
  9. Remove the thermostat housing, thermostat, and gasket, if fitted.
  10. Note the relative positions of all components, especially gaskets and seals. Note the orientation of the thermostat in the housing.
To install:
  1. Be sure the new thermostat is the correct one for your engine.
  2. On V-10 engines, note that there is a rubber lip-type seal with a metal shoulder pressed into the intake manifold beneath the thermostat. The thermostat should fit snugly in the seal.
  3. Clean the gasket or seal mating surfaces.
  4. Paper gaskets must be replaced.
  5. Install the thermostat, gasket or seals.
  6. Install the thermostat housing on the engine.
NOTE The thermostat housing may have the word FRONT on it (3.9L, 5.2L, 5.9L); this goes towards the front of the vehicle.
  1. Be sure all components are properly seated before tightening.
  2. Tighten the housing bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Fasteners should be tightened evenly to avoid leaks or damage.
  3. Reinstall the radiator hose onto the housing.
NOTE Ensure that you have secured the system drain plug(s) before refilling with coolant.
  1. Refill the radiator with a proper coolant mixture.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable(s).
  3. Start the engine and bleed the cooling system. Refer to "GENERAL INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE."
  4. Ensure that the thermostat is operational (by checking the upper radiator hose for warmth), and that there are no leaks.
