Replacing 1987 Chevy Nova Thermostat


Look for a hose extending from the top of the radiator to a round housing atop the engine. Removal of the housing cap screws will reveal the thermostat. Note the mounting orientation of the thermostat to avoid installing the replacement upside down. Remove the old thermostat and gasket. You may have to scrape the old gasket off. Place the replacement gasket and thermostat in position and reinstall the housing cap screws and tighten securely. Start your Chevy and check for leaks..

Replacing thermostat


Follow the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose is connected to a metal housing, and the thermostat is beneath the housing. Remove the housing (not the hose) from the engine (2 bolts), remove the old thermostat and gasket (scrape the old gasket off if necessary), insert the new gasket and thermostat, and replace the housing.

Replacing thermostat on 3100 sfi v6


1. drain coolant from radiator
2. unbolt and remove the water neck from the engine block (it's attached to the upper radiator hose) and scrape any leftover gasket material off of the mating surface w/ a razor or gasket scraper, being careful not to actually gouge the metal
3. pull thermostat out of engine block (it's easy to see w/ the water neck off)
4. scrape any gasket material off mating surface on engine side, being even more careful not to gouge the metal here
5. place new t-stat on engine side opening
6. place gasket over the thermostat (you can put a thin bead of RTV sealant on both sides of the gasket if you wish, some people think it's overkill, but i hate doing things twice)
7. replace water neck
8. refill cooling system, use the little brass bleeder screw on top of the motor to bleed out the air until a steady stream of coolant is coming out after the engine is warmed up. close the screw.

How do you change the thermostat on a 98 ford ranger 2.5L


CAUTION If the radiator is filled to the top with coolant and the engine is run without the radiator cap in place, the coolant will expand and spill over as the engine warms up.

  • 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.


When replacing the thermostat, also replace the gasket that seals the thermostat in place and is positioned between the water outlet casting and the engine block.
Generally, these gaskets are made of a composition fiber material and are die-cut to match the thermostat opening and mounting bolt configuration of the water outlet. Thermostat gaskets generally come with or without an adhesive backing. The adhesive backing of gaskets holds the thermostat securely centered in the mounting flange, leaving your both hands free to align and bolt the thermostat securely in place.
  • Remove the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If any gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably be a coolant leak after reassembly.
  • Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
  • Install the gasket.
Hopefully this is helpfully

I would always replace the gasket when changing a thermostat. Old gaskets usually get damaged during removal and they're cheap anyway.
