Yes - that is the location. There is a housing (dome shaped) attached to the engine block.
The thermostat resides inside.

Good morning! Yes you are correct! The thermostat is indeed located at housing where upper hose hooks to engine. The only variance to this would be if it is a 2.3 quad 4 engine. If this is the case thermostat is under car near oil pan in coolant pipe crossover. Hope this information is useful to you and have a great day!

Hi my camry 300sei boil the water out but the haetgage seems ok when I open the rediotor cep the water is empy and the car is warm can u please help!!!!


When cold fill the radiator with water and leave the cap off. Make sure that you have all the air out.
Start the car and watch the radiator, you are looking for air bubbles coming out of the radiator. If you have a steady stream of bubbles appearing you have a blown head gasket.

Why is temperature guage of nissan wingroad very high?


I would assume it is because either a) your engine is getting very hot, or b) your temperature sensor is going bad. The way to test would be to use an infrared thermometer to see the engine temperature. Does the car shut down on your while you are driving?
If the engine is getting very hot, it is probably because your coolant isn't flowing properly or your radiator is blocked by a plastic bag or something.
Once you confirm that your radiator isn't blocked, check the level of the coolant in the reservoir and in the radiator. It should be full to the top of the radiator. If not, add coolant (you should check for a leak if it is seriously low).
If there is enough coolant, you may want to check that your thermostat is opening. This would be as simple as checking if both the top and bottom radiator hoses are getting hot. If they are both hot, then your coolant is flowing through the thermostat.

Check these three things (radiator not blocked, radiator has enough coolant, and both top and bottom radiator hoses getting hot) and then reply with what you have found.
My bet, without seeing the car, is that your thermostat is stuck closed and it needs to be replaced. This is a $10 fix. Buy a new thermostat at Autozone or another parts store, and replace the old one (I'll explain how if it comes to this.)

Where is the thermostat located on a 1999 Saturn SL?


  • 1

    Park the car on a level surface, turn off the engine and let the engine cool a minimum of 2 hours before beginning to remove and replace the thermostat.

  • 2

    Place the bucket under the driver's side corner of the radiator beneath the radiator draincock (located on the bottom of the radiator). Remove the filler cap from the radiator.

  • 3

    Shape a large piece of aluminum foil to form a funnel or channel from beneath the draincock to the bucket, Pinch high side walls in the aluminum foil so it will direct the flowing coolant into the bucket and not allow any to spill on the ground or into the engine.

  • 4

    Turn the draincock clockwise to open it and drain the coolant from your radiator and hoses. Close the draincock when you have finished draining the system.

  • 5

    Locate the thermostat housing. The housing will be on the top of the engine; you can find it easily no matter what model year Saturn you have, by following the main hose coming from the radiator to the engine block. That hose will end at the thermostat housing and there will be one or two houses coming off the housing as well. Disconnect the hoses from the housing.

  • 6

    Using your socket set, remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing in place. Put the tip of your paint scraper between the housing and the engine block and pry up gently to remove the housing. Once the housing is free, remove the gasket that was between the housing and the block. If necessary, use the paint scraper to scrape off any old gasket that is stuck to the metal.

  • 7

    Pull the old thermostat from its seat. The thermostat has a circular steel top with what looks like a raised handle. Simply lift the old thermostat out and place the new one into position.

  • 8

    Lay your new thermostat housing gasket into place and re-install the housing. Tighten the bolts down. Re-connect the hoses and refill your radiator with new coolan

    Heater air Flow is cold


    The thermostat is located on the top hose coming off the radiator. It's a 2-3 inch diameter hose, there should be two coming off the engine block into the radiator. If you look, it's almost always the top hose. You can see two or three bolts and a clamp around the hose going into the top of the thermostat. A new thermostat is around $30 - $60 depending on the car. You will need two quarts of antifreeze and I also suggest getting 'indian head' gaset sealer, put this only on the engine block side of the thermostat. Let me know how it works out and if you need more help.
