Where is the thremostat located

In BMW 328 To locate the thermostat follow the hose from the right side of the radiator to the motor at that connection there is thermostat.There should be 3 bolts which you will have to remove to take off the thermostat. In BMW 328i The thermostat is located behind the viscous fan and approx 9inches above the center of the fan. The viscous fan drives the water pump and the thermostat housing is just above the water pump at the front of the engine. The thermostat is a one piece unit and is a bit expensive £55 at dealers £42 independent. You will need to remove the viscous fan to get at it there are special spanners for this and its a 30mm socket left hand thread ( screws off clockwise). Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

1999 dodge ram 1500 magnum v8 318 thremostat

follow the top radiator hose to the motor... that hosing where it joins the motor is where it is located... usually two bolts hold it on... to replace it you need to drain the rad a bit... remove the two bolts... scrap off the old gasket... replace the thermostat... in the exact way the old one was .... replace the gasket and bolt all back up... make sure you inspect for leaks after it's running and topped up... with the rad cap on
