    Just follow the two large hoses coming from the radiator. One of them will end at the housing in the diagram and that's the one. If you're really desperate, I can try going by the Porsche Driving School(it's local for me) and eyeball it for you on one of their cars.

Where is the a/c and thermostat fuse located?


if you have the owners manual, it should have a diagram... although, hmmm... maybe we're thinking of two different thermostats. either way, the owners manual should have what you need. if not, find a Haynes manual. it will have everything you need.

Hi im trying to find out if my grand prix has a thermostat .not sure if it does i thought maybe it might be built in


all vehicles have thermostats, the location differs from vehicle to vehicle, looking up the information specific to your car will help, using the internet or shop manuals to find the year of car, engine, transmission, and then finding an exploded diagram of your motor will help you find the thermostat on your car, but be careful, some thermostats are very hard to replace

I just bought this 1998 Taurus and it is overheating. I assumed it was a bad thermostat, so I went looking for it to replace it. It took me forever to find what I believe to be the housing under the...


Hi!
The thermostat is located on top of the engine, follow the LOWER RADIATOR HOSE to the engine, the part where it connects to, is the thermostat housing, remove it to get to the thermostat.
Do the Cooling Fan kicks in when the temp. gauge is about half way up?? If not, check the Cooling Fan fuse(s) and Relay(s), they are located on the engine compartment Fuse Block.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Thermostat

  1. Some models require you to remove the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body.
  2. Some models with cruise control have a vacuum modulator attached to the thermostat housing with a bracket. It your vehicle is equipped as such, remove the bracket from the housing.
  3. On the 4-cylinder engines, unbolt the water outlet from the thermostat housing, remove the outlet from the housing and lift the thermostat out of the housing. On all other models, unbolt the water outlet from the intake manifold, remove the outlet and lift the thermostat out of the manifold.
