Where is the thermostat located & how to replace it ?


Follow the top radiator hose to the engine. The thermostat will be in that area (usually connected to the hose..)

26022036-1nupyibathm30i022zdl4zhz-3-0.jpeg Remove the radiator hose and then undo the bolts that hold the thermostat housing onto the engine.

26022036-1nupyibathm30i022zdl4zhz-3-3.jpeg The thermostat housing will have either 2 or 3 bolts, depending on what type of vehicle you have.
Simply prise off the housing and remove the thermostat.



26022036-1nupyibathm30i022zdl4zhz-3-6.jpeg This is what the thermostat will look like. It only fits one way.
Prior to replacing the thermostat clean the housing and mating faces where it bolts onto the engine. You will need to replace the small gasket (which should be supplied with a new thermostat).

You can also use sealant - available from car shops.

Overheated. Why won't it start?


I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

Replace thermostat in a 1997 Dodge Intrepid


The thermostat is an easy replacement. The part from the part store should be very inexpensive and is very easy to install. IMPORTANT: allow the cars cooling system to completely cool down before starting to work on it. Here are the steps to replace the thermostat:

1. Allow car to cool.
2. Place drain pan under radiator and allow for coolant to drain below the thermostat. Do not completely drain the system unless replacing the fluid.
3. Remove the hose clamp and hose from thermostat housing.
4. Remove the two bolts holding the housing to engine.
5. Remove the thermostat gasket and clean the gasket completely off the engine and thermostat housing.
6. Remove the thermostat and replace with new.
7. Place new gasket on with reassembly.

Thermostat needs replaced


To replace a thermostat, you will need at least: 1. A new thermostat 2. Screwdriver 2. Needle-nosed pliers. Depending on the thermostat and location in your home, you may need more. Make sure the new thermostat you are using to replace the old one with is compatible to your 110-volt housing circuitry. Always turn off the electrical power to the home thermostat at the power panel or circuit breaker box.--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Replaced thermostat for 2001 Volvo S40, however, car is still reading as if it were hot. Coolant also added. What could be further issue? A sensor is what the repair garage suggested. Has anyone else had...


I recently took my car in for this problem. The thermostat was replaced a year ago. This time they replaced the thermostat and the IAT (air intake temperature sensor). The thermostat was 20 and the IAT was 50, with labor it all came to $140. Most sites online that I found suggested replacing both the sensor and the thermostat at the same time. When the thermostat goes, it usually takes the sensor with it. So I'd have them replace your sensor too. Good luck.
