Question about 2000 Chrysler LHS

2 Answers

I can't seem to find the thermostat in my 2000 Chrysler LHS 3.5 L Is it in the manifold at the end of the upper radiator hose or elsewhere? I've seen so many answers and haven't yet found a solution. A book put it on the radiator, which seems wrong to me, someone mentioned following the lower radiator hose to the engine but I can't seem to find where that goes and another mentioned it's inside the manifold housing. I really don't want to take off the manifold unless I know for sure it's there.

3.2 and 3.5 motors have the thermostat in the front of the engine were the top radiator hose connects to,as well as the heater hoses. you should have 2 or 3 screws,remove them after you remove the hoses,once the cap is of the thermostat is inside, and should be on the upper part of your crank pulley in front of the motor

If you were to take the upper radiator hose off the engine, and look into the resultant hole, you would see the thermostat.

The thermostat on all cars blocks water leaving the engine and going to the radiator, until the thermostat warms up enough to open.

While the thermostat is closed, water circulates through the heater hose, straight back to the inlet of the water pump. This circulation prevents hot spots, distributing the heat evenly to warm the engine up, and also brings that warmed water to the thermostat.

When the t-stat gets hot enough to open, water leaves the engine instead of circulating through it, and that allows cool(ed) water to flow from the radiator through the bottom hose to replace the water that left through the upper hose and t-stat.

The stub that the upper hose attaches to on the engine should be part of a small housing that is bolted to the engine. Removing that housing is how you remove the t-stat.

Where is the termostat located on my 2000 chrysler lhs


Hi your thermostat is situated below the alternator at the end of the rubber hose. You will have to remove it from under the car or through the fender. It will also help to remove your alternator for more hand room from the top if you have a helper holding the part for you to screw the upper bolt. Make sure you apply the new gasket properly. Mike

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.
