Hi:
If you are asking about the engine thermostat , it is located under a housing, under where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. The housing is held down with bolts, and requires a new gasket when you swap out the thermostat.. The thermostat should be closed when cold.

Wherer is the thermostat on a hyundai elantra


There are at least 3 thermostats on your vehicle: One controls the electric cooling fan for the engine and its sensor is on the front radiator, the second is the passenger heating thermostat located under the dash board regulated by the switch on the dash board, The third is the thermostat housed in the cooling lines that opens at 180-190 degrees located on the top of the block water jacket where one of the heater hoses connects to its housing.

No heat


I would by checking coolant level. If your too low u won't have enough to circulate. after that u r looking at a thermostat or water pump.i would pull the thermostat and then put it back together and run it. now remember without it the coolant should circulate all the time so u will want to replace it so your fluid will reach the optimum temperature, but if u get a little heat with it out u know that was the problem. if thats not it u will want to run vehicle with radiator cap off . u will be able to see if fluid is moving. make sure u have thermostat out or u really dont know which one it is

Had a slight coolant leak on a hose so I replaced the hose, while i was in there i changed the thermostat. did not have a cooling problem until i messed with the leak in the first place.. PLEASE...


most system have to be bleed.this what works for me turn the heat on with the radiator cap open. you will see bubble in the port if ther is air in the system. that vechile might have a bleeder valve which be located on one of the coolant housing if it does. if it does slightly open the bleeder screw a slightly,let it run until the coolant is at a steady flow.

Vechile is overheating I believe the thermostat is stuck close


Hi, there isnt really a way to unstick it. The thermostat has a wax pellet that expands when it is operating causing the spring inside to open the thermostat letting the coolant flow properly. All you can really do just replace the thermostat, its a simple job as well

Blowing Cold Air


Sounds like a heater core. Check the passenger side floor board. Sometimes when these go out there will be some water on the passenger side floor. Hope this helps some.

No heat or defrost


Start your truck and warm it up to normal operating temp. Keep an eye on your temp gauge, when its at normal open the hood and locate the top hose off the radiator. With a rag or gloves grab the hose and squeeze it, your should be able to squeeze it with a lttile effort if not and the hose is real tight chances are your thermostat is sticking in wich case the temp gauge will be way above the norm. What i am thinking is this will not be the case, i think that your knob that regulates your heat has a broken cable. If so its a real pain in the **** to replace what i would do is locate your heater hoses(there will be 2) about 3 quarter,s of an inch round. Follow them to the point were there,s a valve inline with the cable there (by the firewall) attached or maybe broke there. This valve regulates your heat from the knob inside just move it (by hand or with pliers) to open it and you,ll get heat. Now this will have to be closed in the summer of course for the a/c to work. Hope this helps, sucks being cold! To change the thermostat just follow the top main radiator hos and with a half inch socket and ratchet remove the 2 bolts that hold it to the intake manifold pull it up and you,ll see the thermostat pull it out and replace it with a new 1 and a gasket (no permatex) replace the bolts start thr car warm it up and check for leaks.
