Where is thermostat on 05 Chrysler 300 3.5 v6


Find the lower radiator hose where it leaves the radaitor. Follow it to the lower engine block. The lower hose is connected to the t-stat housing. See the NOTES below for special instructions.

To Remove:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    WARNING
    Do not remove pressure cap with the system hot and under pressure because serious burns from coolant can occur.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Detach the electrical connectors from the engine oil and power steering pressure switches.
  5. Disconnect the radiator and heater hoses from thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the thermostat housing bolts.
  7. Remove the housing, thermostat, and gasket.

    NOTE The OEM thermostat is staked in place at the factory. To ensure proper seating of the replacement thermostat, carefully remove the bulged metal from the thermostat housing using a suitable hand held grinder. It is not necessary to re-stake the replacement thermostat into the thermostat housing.

    To install:
    1. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces.
    2. Position a new gasket on the thermostat and housing.
    3. Install the thermostat housing, gasket and mounting bolts onto block. Tighten attaching bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    4. Install the radiator hose.
    5. Install the bypass hose.
    6. Connect the negative battery cable.
    7. Fill the cooling system. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1999 Saturn SL?


  • 1

    Park the car on a level surface, turn off the engine and let the engine cool a minimum of 2 hours before beginning to remove and replace the thermostat.

  • 2

    Place the bucket under the driver's side corner of the radiator beneath the radiator draincock (located on the bottom of the radiator). Remove the filler cap from the radiator.

  • 3

    Shape a large piece of aluminum foil to form a funnel or channel from beneath the draincock to the bucket, Pinch high side walls in the aluminum foil so it will direct the flowing coolant into the bucket and not allow any to spill on the ground or into the engine.

  • 4

    Turn the draincock clockwise to open it and drain the coolant from your radiator and hoses. Close the draincock when you have finished draining the system.

  • 5

    Locate the thermostat housing. The housing will be on the top of the engine; you can find it easily no matter what model year Saturn you have, by following the main hose coming from the radiator to the engine block. That hose will end at the thermostat housing and there will be one or two houses coming off the housing as well. Disconnect the hoses from the housing.

  • 6

    Using your socket set, remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing in place. Put the tip of your paint scraper between the housing and the engine block and pry up gently to remove the housing. Once the housing is free, remove the gasket that was between the housing and the block. If necessary, use the paint scraper to scrape off any old gasket that is stuck to the metal.

  • 7

    Pull the old thermostat from its seat. The thermostat has a circular steel top with what looks like a raised handle. Simply lift the old thermostat out and place the new one into position.

  • 8

    Lay your new thermostat housing gasket into place and re-install the housing. Tighten the bolts down. Re-connect the hoses and refill your radiator with new coolan

    its usually at the end of one of the large rubber tubes going into the engine, under a small metal cap held down with 2 or 3 bolts. careful not to over tighten. always use blue locktite on the bolts and alittle avaition gasket sealant "brown stuff that doesnt completely harden) on the thermostat seat to ensure proper installation.
