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.

    95 Cavy Z24 leaking coolant and overheating. Someone looked at it and said they saw spewing from what looked to be the thermostat housing. What do I ask for when trying to get the replacement? Should...

    Is this on the end of the head, drivers side. The thermostat isn't in that housing, but it is common what you are describing. That is the water inlet housing, it is made of plastic and they crack. It is available aftermarket.

    Bleed the clutch in my 95 cavalier

    The bleeder screw is located on the transmission slave cylinder housing. (Follow the hose from the clutch master cylinder) This is not a bolt, but a bleeder screw that has a fluid passage through the center to allow fluid to exit during bleeding.
    An assistant needs to pump the clutch, then hold the pedal to the floor. Open bleed screw, tighten and repeat. Good luck

    How to put a thermostat in a 2001 chevy cavalies

    Follow the large hose coming out of the top of the radiator. That should take you to the thermostat housing. You need to place a container under the drain spigot on the radiator and drain a gallon or so of coolant from the radiator so that coolant doesn't run out when you remove the housing. Remove the housing (usually don't need to remove hose) and scrap clean both surfaces of the housing and the block. Take not of the position of the gasket and thermostat you are removing. Replace thermostat, put a small amount of gasket sealing material on both surfaces, put new gasket on and tighten the housing back down. Some engines have a small plug in2_bing.gif the housing. You have to remove the plug as you replace coolant back into the motor until you see coolant running out of the hole and then put the plug back in.

    Here is a video that show the gist of changing one.
