SOURCE: how do i replace thermostat in 2001 dodge dakota

  • Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
  • Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
  • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
  • Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
  • The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
  • When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
  • Install the gasket.
  • Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
  • When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
  • You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
  • Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
  • If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

Just had that problem w/ my 01 Dekota, it was the resistor that used to be mounted on the firewall and easy to get to but that is now mounted low on the back of the engine jammed into a bey tight position. I couldn't get to it myself, so ended up taking it to neighborhood garage. Cost me about $150

My 2001 dodge Dakota with 4.7 engine. The check engine light came on and the code reader says that the engine runs cold to long. What does that mean??


probably means that the thermostat is stuck open or missing, the temperature sensor unit (not temperature sender unit) is faulty and needs replacing

2001 dodge dakota sport 4.7. i flushed the radiator, now it won't take all of the antifreeze that is required for refill. help


You have an air bubble. Look for plug on top of the intake manifold next to the thermostat housing, Remove that and fill until coolant starts to run out. Put plug back in loosely and continue filling until no more goes in. Tighten plug and replace your radiator cap. Fill overflow bottle and start engine.

find the big hose coming off of the top of your radiator.

remove the metal piece that the hose was hooked to, should only be two or three bolts.

your old thermostat will be in there, pay attention to the orentation it is in.

remove it and put your new one in there with a new gasket

reinstall metal pipe and radiator hose

The thermostat housing is on the front right side of the engine (passenger side) - you have to remove the lower radiator hose to access it... it is at lower right side (front) of engine.

I can't find the thermostat on my 2001 Dodge Caravan. Can someone help?


Hello jhenry246, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

The Thermostat is located behind the Thermostat Housing on almost all Vehicles. There are 3 different Engine types they used in this Caravan this particular year. I have uploaded you pictures showing the locations of the Thermostat and Housings for each Engine in .pdf format. You can download them by clicking HERE. The engine cooling thermostats are a wax pellet driven, reverse poppet choke type. If you follow the Upper Radiator Hose up to the side of the Engine, it connects to the Thermostat Housing.

You must drain the Cooling System before you remove it. I went ahead and made you up the replacement procedures for replacing this Thermostat. You can download it by clicking HERE.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

go to an autozone store, or similar auto parts store and they will show you exactly where it is and have a replacement you can purchase.

If you want to look yourself:
Check the hose from the radiator on the passenger side of the engine. It is in the housing where it meets the engine. facing the engine,it is on the lower part of the block,passenger side.


please mark this as a fixya! thanks.
