It shouldnt boil at operating temp. unless the cap is bad and its not holding pressure the bleeder valve is for letting air out of the system you should have opend that while you were refilling it after changining the last componant if you didnt take off the cap open the valve and fill it up until it comes out then shut it top it off.

How to replace thermastat in a 2006 mercedes cls500


Make sure the engine is fully cold, open the radiator cap on the plastic reservoir, drain the coolant into a large pan by opening the plastic plug at bottom of radiator - reclose the plastic plug when drained. Cover the top half of the serpentine belt with a plastic bag. Remove the spring clip radiator hose connection at the engine block/thermo housing. Move the radiator hose back and forth gently until it breaks loose. Loosen the 10mm bolts holding the thermo assembly in place. Tap the thermo housing with a rubber or plastic hammer or pry the housing gently with a long blade screwdriver from behind by the lip, Remove the bolts all the way, remove the thermo housing, clean the circular ring area of debris in the engine block where the thermostat sits. Place the new thermostat assembly in place, torque bolts to 5 nm, then back and forth to 12nm then to 22nm. Replace the radiator hose, put on a new clamp and fill radiator with coolant as well as the plastic canister. put the cap on the reservoir, remove plastic bag from serpentine belt, start car - check for leaks, readjust coolant level after 20-25 minutes.

Where is thermostat located 4.3 liter chevy s10, 2003


The thermostat is located inside the steel thermostat housing, which is located on the front of the engine right in front of the throttle body housing and halfway between the alternator and a/c compressor. Remove the air intake assembly and remove the front bracket connected to the front two bolts of the throttle body. Then remove the two main bolts of the thermo housing. Lift up the thermo housing and you will see the thermostat sitting there.

How do i remove replace thermostat on a 1992 buick century 3.3 litre


This car is an easy one to do, the thermostat is on the top of the engine, make sure to do this with a cool engine, follow the upper radiator hose to the motor , the housing that the hose clamp to is the housing you need to remove, you will loose a little coolant when the hose is removed and also the housing so you will what a catch pan under the car to catch the coolant. remove the clamp holding the hose and pull hose off and bend off to the side. next you will remove the bolts holding the housing and pull off there you will see the thermostat, take note how it sits in to avoid putting it in upside down, you will want to clean the housing and engine where the gasket sits, install new thermostat and gasket and tighten, then install and tighten hose, next is to fill radiator and then let engine run to operating temp then top off and cap it, let car cool and then remove the cap start the engine and top off if needed, all done. hope this is helpful, good day.

Where is the thermostat located


Under the hood find radiator at front of the car on either left or right side of radiator is a fat hose that will be connected to the radiator. Follow that hose to the engine and it connects to the thermostat cover that is connected to the top of the engine with two bolts holding it on. Remove both bolts, Remove thermostat cover replace with new thermostat, Scrap off old gasket on both connecting sides place in new gasket (using a gasket sealer with the gasket wouldn't hurt to) replace both bolts only SNUG tight if using sealer let sit for a hour or two. your done!!

Where is the thermostat on a 2007 ford explorer sport trac?


Find the radiator, big black thin rectangular shaped thing in the front. It has two large black rubber hoses connecting it to the engine. Where the top hose connects to the engine is the thermostat housing. Inside that housing sits the thermostat.

I have a 2000 mazda millinia and it is overheating and the coolant is leaking. Could you tell me what some of the problems may be?


Hello, the thermostat on the Mazda Millenia is the heart of the coolant system. The thermostat regulates the flow of coolant to your motor and ensures your Mazda runs cool at all times. The thermostat acts as a valve to allow just enough coolant to flow through the system to maintain the engine temperature. When the engine temperature cools, the thermostat will close and pressurize the coolant. This cycle is what keeps your engine running cool.


To remove the thermostats follow this steps:
1. Pull the hood release latch under the steering wheel. Access the engine compartment to replace the thermostat.

2. Remove the top radiator hose by unscrewing the hose clamps with a flat-head screwdriver. The hose clamp may have a hose clamp requiring pliers. This clamp will have two tabs on it. Pull the tabs together to loosen the hose clamp.

3. Remove the bolts at the top of the thermostat assembly. The radiator hose will stop at the thermostat assembly.

4. Remove the top portion of the thermostat assembly. The thermostat will be sitting in the bottom portion.

5. Remove the thermostat with your fingers. The thermostat is positioned a particular way. Remember the position it was sitting in the housing.

And for installing the thermostats follow the following steps:

1. Place the new thermostat in the housing. Remember the position of the old one.

2. Lay down the gasket around the surface of the housing. Scrape off the old gasket with a putty knife or a razor blade.
3. Tighten the housing back together. You will want the housing snug to help create a seal for the assembly.

4. Install the radiator hose back on the assembly and the radiator. Tighten the hose clamp snug.

5. Refill the coolant level back to full. Some coolant may have been lost during the replacement.


Thanks

How do i replace the thermostad


Hello, if im not mistaken you will have to remove the battery and the tray it sits on, or at least i founded easier that way. Follow the upper hose to where it meets the engine, thats your Thermostat housing, remove the 2 bolts, remove the housing and there you have it. Also a good idea to get new gasket for the housing and thermostat. hope this is helpful
