Look at the upper radiator hose follow it down to were it clamps to the engine This part is called the goose neck Thermostat is located under it and what you need to do is first drain some antifreeze out of the radiator a QT or so remove the hose clamp remove the hose remove the two bolts that hold down the goose neck the t stat is under it lift it out clean off the old gasket real good its important to getting a good seal with the new gasket and not cracking the neck when your reinstalling put new t stat in put new gasket on you may want to put some sealer on it then reinstall everything else in reverise order don;t over tighten goose neck bolts about 18 ft lbs
Locate the upper radiator hose on the radiator. Follow it back to where it connects to the motor. There should be a housing that the hose connects to that is held in place by 2 to 3 bolts. Remove the housing and the thermostat should be under that. The Temp sensor is a little harder to locate as it will be on the motor, usually near the manifold, and has two wires running to it.
just follow the top radiator hose toward the engine. that metal housing that the radiator hose hooks up to has the thermistat under it take off the two bolts and change out thermistat.refill with coolant then run for about a half hour to warm up enough to open thermistat, then top off with coolant at the radiator cap.leave cap loose during this operation so that no pressure will build up in radiator.if unsure squeeze upper rad. hose it should easilly compress if stiff pressure has built up so dont open the cap. let cool then top up coolant
YOU NEED TO CHECK COOLANT LEVEL.AND CHECK THERMOSTAT.WHEN YOU FIRST START YOUR CAR UP IN THE MORNING .WHEN IT GET OPERATING TEMP.RUN ABOUT 5 TO 10 MINUTES.FEEL TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND THE BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.IF BOTH HOSES IS HOT THERMOSTAT GOOD.IF TOP HOSE IS NOT HOT BUT THE BOTTOM IS REPLACE THERMOSTAT.THAT CAUSING ENGINE TO GET HOT.IF ALL IS GOOD.CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF LEAKING REPLACE WATER PUMP.CHECK COOLING FANS.MAKE SURE THEY ARE RUNNING.IF NOT CHECK FUSE AND RELAYS.
The thermostat is located near the back left of the engine if you are looking in with your hood open. It is inconveniently located next to several other hoses and wires. Your best bet is a racheting screwdriver with a 10mm socket. It is accessible from the top side. If you replace the thermostat and you experience over heating, it is most likely just air trapped in the housing. Run your car and warm it up, let it cool down, open radiator cap and add coolant. Repeat a few times and that should purge the air.
Not always. If you have a KA24E (2.4L 4 cyl) engine, the thermostat is located where the lower hose connects to the engine. I have had to change mine. It's easiest to get to if you remove the power steering pump and set it to the side. The thermostat housing is directly below where the PS pump mounts.
