If you follow the top radiator hose to a domed alumillium housing, it's in that housing.

I have a 2012 Kia Sorento and the cooling fan will not shut down. Ishut the engine off and it has been running for 30 minutes. Now it has run down the battery down

There is a thermostat which turns the fan on and off to maintain a reasonably level temperature of the coolant. If the fan has stayed on, I would think that the thermostat has jammed on and that's why it keeps the fan running. You will need a new thermostat. ( Not the water thermostat that is in the engine) A fan thermostat is what you will likely need.. A Dealer or parts outlet shop will know what you need.

Temperature gage mid point will go back down and back up. heat ok.

You have a sticky "thermostat" valve.
It should stay "closed" until the engine warms up,
then open, to allow more coolant to cool the engine down.
If it is "slow" to open, your engine gets too hot, until it does open.
Then, the coolant cools down the engine, until the thermostat finally closes again.

2000 dodge stratus. Heater only works at idle, when driving at high speeds, heater blows cold and thermostat gauge goes to cold. Back flushed heater core, new thermostat any ideas?

I'd say you have a faulty thermostat, be it new or not. If your temperature gauge goes to cold as your engine is taking you down the highway, the thermostat is not doing its job. The temperature should never come down to below normal until engine is shut off...

What is mean by thermostate valve

The thermostat is a critical part of your coolant system, the system that circulates water and antifreeze (coolant) through the engine to keep it from over-heating. It is called a valve because it can open and close, depending on how hot the coolant is acting upon it.
The reason to put a thermostat in the coolant system is to allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature quicker (and therefore operate at peak efficiency) than without a thermostat.
When the engine is cold, the coolant is at normal outside temperature, so the thermostat is closed. This means when you start the car, the coolant starts circulating through the engine, but can't flow into the radiator. With a closed thermostat, the coolant just keeps circulating around in the engine until the car warms up, the coolant gets hot, and the heat acts upon the thermostat, causing it to open at a certain temperature (about 185-195 degrees F.), With the thermostat now open, the coolant can now enter the upper radiatior hose and flow down the radiator to cool itself down, before going back into the engine through the lower radiator hose.
So the thermostat is always found on a car in the area where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. Thermostat closed-water can't circulate through the radiator. Thermostat open- coolant is forced through the hose into the radiator.
I hope this helps you understand the thermostat valve and why all manufacturers include them.

Need instructions for replacing thermostat on a 2001 Grand Cherokee 4.7 litre

Do not loosen radiator drain **** with system hot and pressurized. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

NOTE Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. If thermostat is being replaced, be sure that replacement is specified thermostat for vehicle model and engine type.

  1. Locate the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing by following the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose connects to the thermostat intake. A second, smaller hose connects to the left side of the radiator hose. This is a bypass hose for the heater.
  2. Remove the two bolts that secure the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing to the engine with a socket and ratchet and lift the intake upward to drain the coolant in the hose back into the radiator.
  3. Remove the gasket and the thermostat from the engine and discard them. Wipe the mating surfaces of the thermostat intake housing and the engine off with a clean towel.
  4. Place the new thermostat, spring down, into the engine and place the thermostat gasket over the thermostat.
  5. Place the thermostat intake housing onto the thermostat gasket. Thread the bolts into the thermostat intake by hand to avoid cross-threading the bolts and then tighten them using a socket and ratchet.
Additional information:
  1. Clean mating areas of timing chain cover and thermostat housing.
  2. Install thermostat (spring side down) into recessed machined groove on timing chain cover.
  3. Position thermostat housing on timing chain cover.
  4. Install two housing-to-timing chain cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm).
    CAUTION Housing must be tightened evenly and thermostat must be centered into recessed groove in timing chain cover. If not, it may result in a cracked housing, damaged timing chain cover threads or coolant leaks.
  5. Install lower radiator hose on thermostat housing.
  6. Install splash shield.
  7. Lower vehicle.
  8. Fill cooling system.
  9. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
  10. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.
Good Luck and if this helps don't forget to vote.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 cavalier 2.4?

Things You'll Need:
  • Wrenches and sockets
  • Torque wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  • Gasket scrapper
  • Antifreeze
  • Screwdriver
  1. 1

    Follow the lower radiator hose to where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is where the opposite end of the lower radiator hose mounts to the engine.

  2. 2

    Drain enough coolant from radiator until it is below the thermostat. Failure to do this will result in your antifreeze leaking out onto the ground.

  3. 3

    Loosen clamp and remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Some antifreeze will leak out, so have some rags available.

  4. 4

    Remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing on and pull the housing from the engine. The gasket might make it a little difficult, so do not be afraid to pull hard. Do not strike it with any tools as you can crack it.

  5. 5

    Remove the old thermostat and note its alignment.

  6. 6

    Place a rag in the thermostat's mounting hole so no gasket material can enter the engine and then scrape the gasket from the housing and the engine.

  7. 7

    Install the new thermostat in same position as old one.

  8. 8

    Reinstall the housing and tighten down bolts snugly. Torque them with your torque wrench to 10 ft.-lbs. Make sure you do not over-tighten them.

  9. 9

    Reinstall the radiator hose to thermostat housing and tighten the clamp.

  10. 10

    Refill the radiator with coolant and start the engine, allowing it to reach normal operating temperature.

  11. 11

    Check for any leaks at hose connection and thermostat housing. You can tighten them as necessary to stop any leaks.

  12. 12

    Stop the engine and allow it to cool down completely then check the coolant level. Add coolant as required.

Direction of thermostat? Thermostat housing does not fit with thermostat springs down like most vehicles. Thermostat fits upside down. Whats going on?

On the thermostat it says to rad,which means the direction of the water comes out of the engine towards the radiator through the hose.
