1. Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block and there you should see a neck where the hose is connected to the engine block.

2. Take the hose off by removing/loosening the clamp and pulling the hose off. Sometimes it's easier to use a screwdriver to pry the hose off. Be careful though not to damage the hose.

3. There should be 2 bolts on top off the housing. Take the bolts completely out and remove the housing from the engine block.

4. Remove the thermostat and gasket from the block and clean the location good with a wire brush. This ensures a good seal for the new gasket. Sometimes it helps to have a razor blade or other scraper to clean it with. Try not to score the metal when cleaning.

5. Installation is reversed. Some thermostats require a sealant to be used with the gasket, be sure to ask when you buy the thermostat.

6. Start vehicle and let it run for a little bit to check for leaks. If everything checks out, you are good to go.

Fan kicks on at what temp.?

most thermostats start to open at 85 decrees c so the fans should start at that setting . Check with your workshop manual or ask a dealer service centre for the exact setting as it is critical as to when they open for cooling the coolant temperature.

93 lexus gs 300 overheats. i changed water pump, thermostat, radiator cap. still overheating??? what could it be???

Try blowing the radiator fins out (from the inside) with compressed air--bugs and other debris can clog the air flow. Do the radiator fan(s) run when hot? If not, check for blown fuse, seized fan motor(s), bad relay, or bad engine thermal sensor. Is it losing coolant water from somewhere?

LExus 300 ES 93 is overheating. My fan doesn't spin.

check the basic, from fuse and relay engine cooling . have the fan check making sure the fans motor is good, does the fans come on at all when the engine has been running for while, if not it can be the switch, i would go ahead and replace them both thermostats and thermostats switch if you haven't done it. Thermostat switch has to be good, which it turn on and off the cooling fan. Thermostat (work like a valve) has to also operate properly other wise the fluid will continue to flow hot or not flow at all. thermostats will cost 7-8 bucks and the switch cost 47-50 bucks.
