SOURCE: seized thermostat

Not always. If you have a KA24E (2.4L 4 cyl) engine, the thermostat is located where the lower hose connects to the engine. I have had to change mine. It's easiest to get to if you remove the power steering pump and set it to the side. The thermostat housing is directly below where the PS pump mounts.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

How to install a thermostat


I found this for you

there is a hose that runs from the right side of the radiator to the engine right by the air intake, remove that hose, it leads to the housing for the thermostat, there are 2 bolts that you have to remove on the housing itself, one on top and one on bottom, once thats done you can access the thermostat

and this

Drain the radiator in a container. Remove the engine end of the top radiator hose. The housing has 2 bolts that you remove. Remove the thermostat and clean the surfaces and reinstall the thermostat. Reinstall the hose and add coolant.

Hello, I have a 95 Tacoma 4x4, 2.7, 67k miles. I'm having problems with no heat and want to replace the thermostat. I've searched the internet wanting to be sure of where it's...


It probably is at that bottom hose connection. I just replaced a water pump and t-stat on a 2004 Mazda van with a ford v-6 engine (3.0L), and the thermostat housing and thermostat was on the bottom hose from the radiator. This one had no radiator cap, just the recovery tank with a pressurized cap fitting. I think they call it a degas bottle system-something like that, might be relevant or not. But anyway, if you have the housing on the lower hose, don't be surprised if that is where the thermostat goes, some coolant systems are like that.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 dodge durango


Follow your upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of your engine, there where it clamps on is the thermostat housing, remove hose and two or three small bolt's that hold thermostat housing under that is where the thermostat is at. Remmeber that the spring side of the thermostat is what goes into the engine side, facing down.
