If you are talking about a thermostat housing then yes, it does affect the temperature of the engine. the thermostat housing holds the thermostat and has one of the radiator hoses attached to it, it also attaches to the engine block or probably one of the engine heads.

If this isn't the part you are talking about then you might want to take a picture of the part in its proper location, host it on one of the many free image hosting sites, and attach it to your question or type the link in the question so that we can better help to find the part you are inquiring about.

A thermostat keeps an engine from overheating by opening and allowing heated engine coolant to flow into the radiator, which cools the engine coolant, thus reducing engine operating temperature. If it is stuck then it would cause your car to overheat

    Are you talking about the metal that covers the thermostat housing held on by two or three bolts?

  • muath kuhail Jul 04, 2010

    no i'm talking about the piece that connects the piece surrounding the thermostat to the engine .

1991 toyota is getting hot,how can i tell if its a thermostat or clutch fan

To check the thermostat take it out and push it open. Put a piece of cotton through the opening and let it go to jam the cotton in. Hold it in a pan of water on gas range with a thermometer in the water. The thermostat should drop of the cotton when it reaches its working temperature. Check the temperature on the thermometer and see if it approximates to the temperature stamped on the thermostat. You should be able to see or hear the fan running when the engine temperature is high. With the engine cold take off the radiator filler cap. Start the engine and look inside radiator. When you rev the engine you should see movement in the water, if you dont the water pump could be faulty. Your radiator cap could be faulty and not allowing the system to pressure to rise. You probably know this but whatever you do don't take the radiator filler cap off while the engine is hot because the water will immediately boil up and spurt out all over your hand.

I replaced my upper rad. hose and thermostat housing. The piece w/ the two bolts had a metal plate that acted as a gasket. I'm getting leaking from there and don't know why. Please help.

It would help greatly to know what you're working with. No thermostat housing uses a metal plate for a gasket. Some will use a paper gasket and some vehicle will use a rubber o-ring that fits around the thermostat.
Impossible to tell you what you need since you gave no make, model, year, etc..

Engine is running very cool, where is t-stat located

If the temperature gauge is showing a low temperature when the engine is at operating temperature, that would mean the Coolant Temperature Sensor is weak and needs to be replaced.

If the engine is overheating, then you would need to replace the thermostat. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine and there should be a plastic or metal outlet that the hose connects to. It should have 2 to 4 bolts holding it to the engine, and underneath is the thermostat.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 isuzu rodeo 3.2L

Hello joshmalik81: My name is Roger and I will help you. First drain down the coolant in the radiator. Next follow the upper radiator hose back to the top of the engine. You will find it connects to a metal tube held down by four bolts. Remove the four bolts and lift up the tube. You will find the thermostat under this metal tube.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

This is no joke, I can,t fine where my thermostat is in my 1997 merc sable, ,i even followed the top hose back to the engine block

if you follow the "upper" radiator hose from the radiator to the engine it should have a metal piece that bolts to the car ( usually with only 2 bolts) and also the hose is clamped to it. it most likely has a domed shape to an elbow looking piece. take the "upper " radiator hose from where it connects to the engine. remove the bolts that hold this metal piece to the engine that you just took the hose off of. the thermostat "should" be located under this piece. you must take that metal elbow thing off from car to access the thermostat. where it bolts to the engine it most likely will have only 2 bolts and where that connects to the engine will be a gasket and it will be kinda football shaped. a lot of cars will also have a brass flat screw on top of this domed shaped elbow. that will be the give away to that that is where it is. what you do is when the car is running and the coolant starts to get warm, you back out the brass screw a little. this will let the air escape thats trapped and when coolant starts to escape tighten the screw back down. now you have the air out of the system after youve replaced the thermostat. I hope this helps....

My 2001 jaguar s-type is overheating. does anyone

The top radiator hose should connect to the thermostat housing, bolted onto your engine. Make sure you get a new gasket.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

How do I replace the thermostat in my 1990 buick LeSabre?

Hello thank you for using for your answer my name is David .
This should help you out if you have any other questions please let me know.

  • Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
  • Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
  • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
  • Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
  • The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
  • When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
  • Install the gasket.
  • Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
  • When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
  • You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
  • Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
  • If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

the thermostat will be directly connected in the radiator hoses, If you follow the output of the radiator to the engine, there should be a spot where the hose connects to a metal piece that houses the radiator (this should be connected directly onto the engine.) This piece will have a bolt on both sides of it and to remove it you will just need to take off the bolts. You should take off the hose first to make sure the thermostat is in this piece and you didn't find some other device. When you take off any hose, it will probably start draining the fluid, so have a bucket or something to catch it. The thermostat just sits inside this device but take not of how the old one is sitting because you don't want to put it in backwards. You may also have to replace the gasket if you wreck it when you take this device off. Overall, it is pretty simple. If you already bought a thermostat, you are just looking for a metal piece that is a little bigger with two bolts on the sides holding it on. Please let me know if you have any trouble or have another question, thanks.
