1997 chrysler lhs...changed the thermostat and the water pump...still overheating...was told it has an air pocket...how do I fix this?


Run the car with the radiator cap loose, that will cause it to burp per say. After a day or two you can tighten the cap on the radiator back up.

How do I remove my car radiator?


Section 303-03: Cooling, Engine 1997 Explorer, Mountaineer Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Radiator - 4.0L Removal
  1. NOTE: Refer to following illustrations.
    Drain the cooling system by removing the radiator cap (8100) and attaching a 9.5 mm (3/8 inch) inside diameter hose to the draincock nipple, located at the lower rear corner of the radiator tank. Then, open the radiator draincock (8115) and allow the coolant to flow through the hose into a suitable container.
  1. Loosen hose clamps at throttle body and engine air cleaner assembly. Remove air cleaner outlet tube and position aside.
  1. Remove radiator overflow hose from the radiator, disconnect two hose locators at top of radiator and position hose aside.
  1. Remove two fans shroud bolts. Lift the fan shroud out of the lower retaining clips and position it on the fan blade.
  1. Position upper and lower radiator hose clamps, remove hose from radiator and position it on the fan blade.
  1. Disconnect the two transmission cooling lines from the oil cooler fittings on the radiator, install protective caps over lines and position aside.
  1. Remove two upper radiator bolts.
  1. Tilt the radiator back (rearward) approximately 25 mm (one inch) and lift directly upward, clear of the radiator support bracket and the fan blade.
Installation
  1. Position the radiator into engine compartments, make sure that mountings on both tanks are inserted into radiator support brackets. Install radiator retaining bolts. Tighten to 6-8 - (54-70 lb-in).
  1. Remove protective caps from cooler lines. Connect the two transmission cooling lines at the oil cooler fittings on radiator. Tighten to 16-24 - (12-17 lb-ft).
  1. Install upper radiator hose and position hose clamp. Tighten to 3 - (26 lb-in).
  1. Install lower radiator hose and position hose clamp. Tighten to 3 - (26 lb-in).
  1. Position fan shroud in lower retaining clips and install upper bolts. Torque to 6-8 - (54-70 lb-in).

I can't seem to find the thermostat in my 2000 Chrysler LHS 3.5 L Is it in the manifold at the end of the upper radiator hose or elsewhere? I've seen so many answers and haven't yet found a solution. A...


If you were to take the upper radiator hose off the engine, and look into the resultant hole, you would see the thermostat.

The thermostat on all cars blocks water leaving the engine and going to the radiator, until the thermostat warms up enough to open.

While the thermostat is closed, water circulates through the heater hose, straight back to the inlet of the water pump. This circulation prevents hot spots, distributing the heat evenly to warm the engine up, and also brings that warmed water to the thermostat.

When the t-stat gets hot enough to open, water leaves the engine instead of circulating through it, and that allows cool(ed) water to flow from the radiator through the bottom hose to replace the water that left through the upper hose and t-stat.

The stub that the upper hose attaches to on the engine should be part of a small housing that is bolted to the engine. Removing that housing is how you remove the t-stat.

Leaking from bottom on driver side


your cooling system is faulty, possible the radiator or the hoses connecting are defective. do not drive unless you rectify this or else you will end up in a breakdown.

My car is over heating. I changed the thermostate need to know were/ how to drain radiator correctly and refill


Drains are located on bottom of radiator, Some models dont have them and you simply remove lower radiator hose to drain. But if its full and still overheating? Id have a look at the water pump. They are known to fail and cause severe engine damage

I have a 1997 chrysler LHS and cant seem to get the air out of the motor and when i finally do get heat back in the car the heat gauge will go to H then cool back down when i pull over any one know what...


You probably have air in your cooling system. Some cooling system even have a means of burping or bleeding air off. With a cold engine remove the radiator cap. Have a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water available. Start car. slowly add the coolant mixture until the radiator is filled. wait and watch. if the coolant drops add more. you need the thermostat to open (to fully clear the system of air) which means you need the engine to come up to normal operating temp.
