Need instructions for replacing thermostat on a 2001 Grand Cherokee 4.7 litre

Do not loosen radiator drain **** with system hot and pressurized. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

NOTE Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. If thermostat is being replaced, be sure that replacement is specified thermostat for vehicle model and engine type.

  1. Locate the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing by following the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose connects to the thermostat intake. A second, smaller hose connects to the left side of the radiator hose. This is a bypass hose for the heater.
  2. Remove the two bolts that secure the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing to the engine with a socket and ratchet and lift the intake upward to drain the coolant in the hose back into the radiator.
  3. Remove the gasket and the thermostat from the engine and discard them. Wipe the mating surfaces of the thermostat intake housing and the engine off with a clean towel.
  4. Place the new thermostat, spring down, into the engine and place the thermostat gasket over the thermostat.
  5. Place the thermostat intake housing onto the thermostat gasket. Thread the bolts into the thermostat intake by hand to avoid cross-threading the bolts and then tighten them using a socket and ratchet.
Additional information:
  1. Clean mating areas of timing chain cover and thermostat housing.
  2. Install thermostat (spring side down) into recessed machined groove on timing chain cover.
  3. Position thermostat housing on timing chain cover.
  4. Install two housing-to-timing chain cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm).
    CAUTION Housing must be tightened evenly and thermostat must be centered into recessed groove in timing chain cover. If not, it may result in a cracked housing, damaged timing chain cover threads or coolant leaks.
  5. Install lower radiator hose on thermostat housing.
  6. Install splash shield.
  7. Lower vehicle.
  8. Fill cooling system.
  9. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
  10. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.
Good Luck and if this helps don't forget to vote.

Where is the thermostat and how do I replace it?

  • it is located on the engine (block - in the front).

  • Make sure the engine is completely cool prior to working on the engine. Then place the drain pan underneath the radiator. Open the petcock at the base and let out approximately 1 gallon of coolant.

  • 2

    Unbolt the thermostat housing from the front of the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Coolant will pour out at this point, so be ready for it and aim the hose toward the drain pan if possible. Remove the thermostat and the thermostat gasket.

    Clean all of the mating surfaces on the engine and thermostat housing using the gasket scraper. Then install a replacement thermostat in the housing, with the thermostat orienting the same way as the original. Then install the gasket and the thermostat housing on top of it. Bolt it in place using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.

    Open the radiator cap and fill the radiator with the 50-50 pre-diluted coolant. Turn on the car and let it run for 15 minutes while the interior heat is set on the "high" position. Allow the car to cool for an hour, then add any additional coolant needed

    Where is the thermostat located on 2001 ford focus?

    The purpose of the thermostat is to regulate the coolant system to prevent the engine from overheating. A faulty thermostat will stick and not allow the coolant to enter the engine.
    Follow the upper rad hose to the engine and at the engine there is the thermostat housing.
    Undo the bolts and lift off the connector and replace the thermostat.The thermostat housing is attached with three bolts.Lift the thermostat out of the housing. The thermostat rests at the bottom of the housing.
    -------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

    How do i replace thermostat in 2001 dodge dakota

    • 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.
