You don't HAVE to change it unless it fails, but it's usually done at the same time as the timing belt service since there's a fair amount of disassembly involved and the coolant gets drained anyhow. If you have any invasive work done on the engine involving the cooling system, you may as well do it to save headaches later on. But if your cooling system is working right and your heater is good, you don't necessarily need to change it. Keep in mind though at some point it will probably fail.

How to replace thermostat in 1999 volvo


Don't just change just the thermostat... change the sensor located in the thermostat housing (if your engine is overheating). The whole works is located inside the timing cover. Sockets: You'll need a 10mm for the timing cover and the 3 bolts on the thermostat cover, and an 8mm for the sensor harness bolts. Then you'll need a 3/4 open end wrench for the sensor.

You need talking with the parts guy at the GM dealer You need the "new" style thermostat housing to be able to change just the thermostat. So I ordered a new thermostat housing assembly. Here is what I got, a new aluminum two piece housing and thermostat. Hopefully tomorrow I can get this car back on the road and out of my shop.

Need to change thermostat, any tips?


to change the thermostat follow the top radiator hose back to the block, remove the two bolts that go through the thermostat housing and lift it up, remove the old thermostat and replace a new one, including gasket. Make sure the engine is cooled down and the water drained before you remove thermostat. Most likely you have a 195 degree.

Changing a thermostat in a 1997 Oldsmobile Cutless


The thermostat is on the intake by the exhaust cross over. The crossover will have to be removed to get the thermostat housing out. If the intake gaskets are leaking fix them and change the thermostat while the intake is off. The only reason I say this is because the intake gaskets are a common problem.

Changing a thermostat


Follow the big water hose on top of the radiator to the engine blogk. Where it goes into the block there should be 2 or 3 bolts to remove the housing. When you change the thermostat you should also change the gasket. I hope this helps.you.
