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.

Water cooling system - where is the thermostat for the cooling system located. 6 cyclinder 2004 SLT

The thermostat is located on the driver's side of the engine. It is difficult to see, but it is behind the alternator. The lower radiator hose goes to a metal tube, that is part of the thermostat housing. Below is a picture of thermostat and temp sensor location (alternator removed).

Where is the thermostate located on my 2005 jeep liberty

Thermostats almost always reside in a housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose. Drain coolant first, then loosen radiator hose to access thermostat housing. If you can't find the housing, consult your vehicle service manual for location.

Loosen the bolts that hold down the thermostat housing. Remove the housing to reveal the thermostat.

Note the location and orientation of thermostat relative to the engine. Remove thermostat.

Use a scraper to remove old gasket material from all mounting surfaces.

Place new gasket on housing. Use a small amount of grease or adhesive to hold it in place during reassembly.

Make sure new thermostat is oriented properly and reinstall the housing.

Reconnect all hoses. Close radiator petcock. Refill cooling system with recommended 50/50 blend of water and coolant. Run engine and heater to purge air from cooling system. Recheck the coolant level once engine is cool.

Cooling system and thermostat location. having problem with overheating and need to know what could be causing this.

first look to see if anything is blocking the radiator on both sides that may be causing limited airflow. if nothing is blocking the radiator make sure the fan works. let the car warm up and wait to see if the fan turns on when it starts getting hot, but dont let it overheat. if the fan does work then it might be a stuck thermostat. the thermostat is located on the back side of the engine below the exhaust manifold. there is a downpipe for the radiator and there should be two bolts the you have to take off and the thermostat is between those two pipes. if the thermostat is replaced and you still have a problem with overheating it could be internal and i would suggest having it looked at as soon as possible. hope this helps and good luck! i had the same problem and mine was the thermostat. oh and one more thing, if you are going to change the thermostat yourself i would recommend putting the car on ramps at the very least due to the location of the thermostat. i had a lift which makes things a lot easier, but i think that ramps would do.

Problem for ford 2005 mustang, cooling fan only works when ac is on

The engine cooling fan only comes on after the engine reaches 225-235 Degrees F, that is well past the middle of the gauage, so u may not see it come on very often, unless the engine is overheating there is nothing to worry about here

2001 grand caravan overheating. then suddenly cool

Change your thermostat before it sticks closed completely. Sticky thermostat is usually the cause.
Another possibility is that your radiator fan temperature switch is going bad. This is usually located next to the upper radiator hose at the gooseneck on your engine where the thermostat is located.
