Follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine. Where it meets the engine is where the stat will be (this is the hottest water point on an engine)

P0128 came back after replacing t-stat

code p 128 refers to coolant thermostat---coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature ====causes --mechanical fault
you say that you have replaced the thermostat and it is just under 210 F which is 99 c or almost boiling point
you will have to investigate why it is running so hot.
check that you put the thermostat in correctly ( bulb section to block/head water
Next point --the codes are originated by the coolant temperature sensor ( puts the fans on and sets the ECM fuel/air ratio for the engine ) so to get it off you will need to reset with a scan tool

How to change the thermostat on a 97 acura rl

I just changed a t-stat in a 96 last night. The location is in an "abnormal" location from normal domestic cars. The t-stat is at the engine block end of the lower radiator house. Follow it from the radiator up to the engine block. The one on my car the housing and the T-stat is located behind the throttle bottom. If you are not some what mechanically inclined stop reading this right now and head to a mechanic. If you choose to replace it yourself you have to remove the all covers (your intake and throttle cable cover). You will also have to remove any vaccum houses that are atteched to the air intake and throttle body assymbly. You'll have to remove your air intake house and the "sleeve" that is atteched to the air intake hose and the throttle body air intake opening. You'll also have to remove the cables from the flap control (engage them by pulling back the sprung rocker and removing the cable head through the slot that locks it into the rocker lever). Once both cables have been removed you'll have to remove the cable plate from the throttle body. Now you'll have to remove the throttle body itself from the intake. That is done by removing the four bolts securing it. (If you do not have a torque rench, borrow one and get the specs from your local automotive store). There is a gasket that needs to be replaced between the throttle body and the intake. Once that is all out of the way you'll see the T-stat covering, remove it and expose your therostat. When you remove the T-stat pay attention to the position of the T-stat. Put the O ring on the new T-stat and reverse above prossess in order to properly rebuild the throttle assembly. Be sure to regasket the throttle body and torque the four bolts to specs, also make sure you tighten in a cross pattern to prevent any warping or carcking. AGAIN

Location of the thermostat in a 1998 volkswagon jetta GLX 6 cylender

Normally, follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the t-stat housing, remove the t-stat housing and theres your t-stat. Be careful, make sure the ENGINE AND COOLANT has cooled down.

Overheating boiling over, cant find therm stat location on discovery model

Find where the Upper Radiator hose connects to the block. That is usually where you find the Thermastat. 2 to 3 bolts hold the cover in place. You need new Therma stat, a new seal, and the tools to remove and install the part.

Looking for the thermostat location on a 2001 pontiac aztec

This should be a 3400 SFI engine. the T-stat is in a tricky location. Your top radiator hose is connected to an aluminum pipe. thats the T-stat housing. the T-stat is in there where it connectes to the lower intake there are 1 bolt1 that you need to remove.and the lower on just needs to be lose. the lower hole is sloted. you have to remove the exhaust crossover shield and coolant bypass tube if you have one. its going to be a very tight fit if you leave the crossover pipe on. you can remove it. then its 1 2 3. this is alittle longer than most T-stats i would say about 1.5 hours assuming no studs on your crossover break. just be carefully to apply even pressure when removing those bolts on the exhaust pipe.

Good luck,

Location of the jiggle vavle on the termostat on a 1997 intrepid?

The jiggle valve must be placed in the recess provided at one side of the t-stat housing. The side of the t-stat that looks like an erect nipple, must point up.

Right on top in the middle between the alternator and A/C compressor. The back t-stat has little vent holes that need to go towards the rear of the engine.
