The thermostat is in the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold.
Is the intake manifold what you are talking about ?

Location of therma stat


Hello,
The location of the thermostat for most vehicle.

Stand in front of the car with the hood open, you'll see a black hose hooked to the upper side of the
radiator.( about 2 inch in diameter, newer vehicles about 1 and 1/2 inch, and newer small cars
about 1 and 1/4 inch. ) Follow the hose to the other end, it connects to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is inside of the housing.( the hose usually goes to the air intake manifold, but some
housings are on the side or back of the engine. )

I hope this helps you.

Where is the thermostat located in the 06 stratus


  • Find the location where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold of the engine by tracing it from the radiator to thermostat intake housing bolted to the intake.
  • 2 Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat intake housing by loosening the band clamp that secures it into place. With the clamp loosened, pull the hose off the housing.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the housing to the intake manifold and then lift the housing off the intake.
  • 4 Lift the thermostat out of the intake manifold and place the new thermostat into the hole. The end of the thermostat with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the intake manifold.
  • 5 Lift the thermostat intake housing gasket off the intake manifold and place the new one onto the intake manifold.
  • 6 Place the thermostat intake housing onto the intake manifold and bolt it into place. Reconnect the hose using the band clamp.
  • Six-Cylinder Engines
  • 1 Drive the Dodge onto a set of front-end ramps and secure the parking break. Allow adequate time for the radiator fluid to cool down. Thirty minutes is usually adequate.
  • 2 Loosen the petcock on the lower right hand side of the radiator and drain all of the radiator fluid into a drain pan. Close the petcock once drained.
  • 3 Trace the lower radiator hose to the location where the hose connects to the engine block. The metal housing the hose connects to is the lower thermostat outlet. Remove the hose from the outlet by loosening the band clamp and then by pulling the hose off the outlet. Be careful--some fluid will drain from the hose.
  • 4 Remove the two bolts that secure the thermostat outlet to the engine block and pull the thermostat outlet off the block.
  • 5 Discard the O-ring inside the bottom edge of the thermostat outlet and place a new one into the outlet.
  • 6 Pull the thermostat out of the engine block and replace it with a new one. The end with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the engine block.
  • 7 Place the thermostat outlet onto the engine block and secure it into place. Reattach the lower radiator hose with the band clamp.
  • 8 Open the radiator filler cap located on top of the radiator and fill the radiator with the fluid previously drained from the system.

    Thermostat replacement


    HI there,

    Well first of all you may please follow the steps below -

    1. Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat intake tube by loosening the retaining clip with a screwdriver. Slide the clip toward the radiator and pull the hose off the thermostat intake tube. 2. Remove the two 10-mm bolts that hold the thermostat intake tube onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent. Pull the intake tube off the intake manifold and inspect it for cracks. If any cracks are present, then you need a new thermostat intake tube.
    3. Pull the old thermostat and thermostat gasket off the engine with your hands and replace them both with new ones. The thermostat will be marked with "top." This end should stick out of the engine. 4. Place the thermostat intake tube back onto the intake manifold of the Hyundai Accent and bolt it back into place. 5. Slide the radiator hose back on to the thermostat intake tube and secure it in place with the retaining clip. A band clamp can be used in place of the retaining clip for extra clamping pressure. Post comments for further help or information............

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks for suing FixYa!!

    How to replace a thermostat on a 1999 Nissan Quest?


    1999 Nissan/Datsun Truck Quest Mini Van 3.3L SFI 6cyl

    The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing, which is mounted to the coolant crossover tube. The bypass hose is connected to the thermostat water inlet on one end, and to the intake manifold water outlet on the other. The thermostat is not located in the intake manifold water outlet, where the upper radiator hose is connected.

    Where is the thermostat located on the 2002 Pontiac grand Am?


    I am guessing you have the 2.2 liter engine, because GM did a pretty good job of hiding the thermostat on that engine. The upper radiator hose attaches to the radiator at one end, and the other end attaches to a large pipe which bolts to the back of the intake manifold. The thermostat is between the intake manifold and that pipe assembly. It may not be an easy job replacing it, and the correct thermostat may be hard to get at the average parts store.

    The upper radiator hose on my 96 Mustang GT is not pumping coolant into the intake manifold, it seems that there is alot of pressure in the hose?


    The thermostat is behind here. The hose goes to thermostat-housing which is on top of thermostat on the intake. The thermostat is not opening.

    Where is thermostat on 2001 chevy venture van with v6 engine


    under the intake plenum, which will have to be removed before you can access the thermostat.
    I suggest having it done by a garage mechanic.
