Where do i find the location of my thermostat

It should be at the engine end of the upper radiator hose; This hose should connect onto a fitting called a thermostat housing.. Pull the hose off and remove the two bolts (sometimes three) securing the housing to the engine block. Lift off the housing and the thermostat will be seated there. Position the new thermostat exactly as the old one is.

A sticking thermostat will cause the Oldsmobile Cutlass to overheat causing serious motor damage. The thermostat controls your coolant system allowing enough coolant to flow through the motor keeping the motor cool. You can run your car without the thermostat to keep your car cool, but you will damage your heater as the coolant does not pressurize and get hot enough to maintain a hot temperature for your heater and defroster.

  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Nutdriver
  • Socket wrench
  • Socket set
  • Putty knife
  • Razor blade
  • New thermostat
  • New gasket
  • Coolant
  1. Removal of the Thermostat
    • 1

      Pull the lever to open the hood to reveal the engine compartment. Locate the top radiator hose.

    • 2

      Unscrew the hose clamp with a flat head screwdriver or a nutdriver. Remove the hose completely to access the thermostat housing. You may lose some coolant when removing the hose.

    • 3

      Access the thermostat housing by unbolting the two bolts on top of the housing with a socket wrench.

    • 4

      Scrape the old gasket material off the surfaces of the housing until the surface is smooth.

    • 5

      Remove the old thermostat by pulling it out with your fingers. Remember the exact position as you will place the new one in exactly the same.

    Installation of the Thermostat
    • 1

      Place the new thermostat in the housing. Be sure it sits the same way the old one was positioned in the housing.

    • 2

      Place the new gasket around the surface you previously scraped. Ensure that the gasket sits flush on the surface of the housing.

    • 3

      Bolt the housing back together. Be sure the gasket is aligned correctly before you tighten the bolts.

    • 4

      Attach the radiator hose back to the thermostat assembly and the radiator. Tighten the hose clamps. Tug the hose on both ends to ensure it has a tight fit.

    • 5

      Refill the radiator with new coolant. You may have lost some coolant when you removed the hose.

The temperature gauge on my 1999 Mystique always reads cold, the air blows in but only a little warm. some one told me to check the sender, but i have no idea what that is or how to check it. can any one...

Hi, this sounds more like a thermostat issue, since the gage and the heater seem to correlate.
I recommend you replace the thermostat to see if that will solve your problem. If you want to replace the sender, I have pasted a picture below on where to find it. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

Remove hoses from housing, remove 3 bolts, remove thermostat. Note how o-ring is attached/installed. Install new thermostat and o-ring. Make sure spring end of thermostat goes into the engine. Tighten bolts to 80 in-lbs, reattach hoses, refill coolant and purge any air from the system.

2.0 liter engine, thermostat.

2.5 liter engine, thermostat:


Temp sensor; remove connector, use socket to remove sensor. Use teflon tape of water pump seelant on threads of new sensor. Thread the sensor into position and tighten to 10-14 ft lbs. (14-19 Nm) on the 2.5L engine and 89-120 inch lbs. (10-14 Nm) on the 2.0L engine.

Can't find thermostat location on 1988 Audi 90.

Hi Lol,
I'm not an Audi specialist however if you follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine block the thermostat housing on most engines is at the end, it may have 2 nuts or bolts securing it.
I hope you are now sorted if not please come back to me and I'll try to get my head under the bonnet/hood of a 90 to find what you seek.
Please remember to rate my efforts,
