How do I keep the heater hose pipe that goes to the lower intake from coming out on start up there is no clamp it just bolts to the head ?


Buick heater hose fittings, the metal pipes that go into the lower intake, do have a bolt to hold them in, but also a rubber O-ring around the metal fitting so it won't leak.

My coolant sensor is bad on 1998 Jeep Grand Cher Laredo TSI V8 5.2 4X4 is flashing in control panel.


Trace the upper radiator hose toward the Grand Cherokee's engine until you reach the metal component connecting the hose to the engine -- this is the thermostat housing. Find the coolant temperature sensor -- the electrical component on the thermostat housing. Press the locking button on the coolant temperature sensor wiring harness and pull the wiring harness from the sensor, then remove sensor it screws out. when putting in new sensor coat the threads with teflon pipe thread tape so there is no leaks.

2001 A4 thermostat location


Hello! Ignore my request regarding the engine size, The thermostat is well hidden..Standard labor to replace is 2.0 hours...Thermostat is part # 06B-121-111-G....
Step 1: Drain coolant...

Remove bottom belly pan... Remove coolant reservior tank cap... Remove plastic clip holding coolant sensor in place at lower radiator hose/pipe... With bucket/catch pan underneath, remove sensor and let coolant drain...


Step 2: Remove upper radiator hose...

Remove the small hose connecting the coolant reservoir to the upper radiator hose... Then remove the larger hose from the hard pipe running along the intake and from the radiator... You'll need to pop up (but not off) the metal clip holding the hose to the radiator, then firmly pull back..

Step 3: Remove intake hose (throttle body to inter-cooler)...

Remove driver's side headlight (not necessary but makes it a lot easier). Loosen clamp at each end and remove hose...

Step 4: Remove throttle body...

Remove electrical connector and 4 hex bolts (5mm)...

Step 5: Loosen serpentine belt and slip off of alternator...

Use a box-end or adjustable wrench on tensioner, pull to the right... Carefully slip belt off alternator (towards front of car). Allow to hang loose below...

Step 6: Remove alternator bolts...

Remove 4 bolts holding alternator to bracket...

Step 8: Remove vertical support piece from intake manifold to block...

Remove the two bolts holding the support piece (6mm hex)...

Step 9: Remove bolt from metal hose on thermostat; remove bolt from top of oil cooler...

This will allow you to move the hard pipe away from thermostat... Then wiggle it free from the pipe afterwards...

Bolt holding the hard pipe on the right, two bolts holding the thermostat to the block on the left...

Step 10: Remove upper and lower hoses from t-stat. Remove electrical connector on back side...

Step 11: Remove 2 bolts holding thermostat to block, and remove thermostat...See photo below...Guru...Saailer

I have a 97 passport and my engine coolant keeps leaking out of a small hole right above the flywheel on the back of the engine block. Is this hole supposed to be there and if so where would the leak...


I Have a 94 Rodeo,3.2l v6 I had the same problem...Yes it is a drain hole..You might have a coolant pipe running under your lower intake if so it's the "O" ring on that pipe..It runs from the upper radiator hose to rear of block...50 cent part. If you are doing it yourself check the other heater hose metal pipe O ring also. towards the front under the thermostat housing. I just fixed mine.I had antifreeze coming out the inspection plates on the trans took off the upper plenium and lower intake and the rubber O ring was shot.Clean out flange use a wire V shaped wheel. make sure the Ring fits Snug on the coolant pipe,dry fit in the flange.( Got assorted sizes at NAPA) put a good coat of Black RTV silicon on O ring,And some in the hole itself press pipe in hole and install the bolts.Allow to set for 3hrs. Again this is on a 94 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 L V6 5spd. Hope that helps you

I'm in the process of replacing the thermostat on my 2003 freelander. finally got the coolant drained......that was fun. everything is disconnected and all intake plenum bolts removed( 4 small in the...


You will have to remove the intake manifold (this is the solid large plastic cover that covers the top of the engine when you remove the engine cover). There are many wires and small vacuum hoses to disconnect. Plus.., when re-installing, it is a common problem the manifold cracks if excessive torque is applied to the fastening bolts. And you probably should relpace the intake manifold gasket.You can then remove the thermostat assembly by disconnecting the hoses and loosening the mounting screw.

----------

The procedure as per service manual is as follows:----

Following the Service Manual instructions, drain the coolant circuit, then remove the return pipe and the short rubber hose connected to the engine main coolant rail (1 clip at the bottom + 1 clip at the top). You remove also the outlet hose (1 clip at the engine outlet spout + 1 clip at the bottom pipe, you need to loosen the pipe mount to remove the hose). Once removed the return pipe you can undo the coolant rail: 2 (tight) bolts below the rail and the oil dipstick bolt holding the thermostat housing. Doing this without the manifold in place is simple, but its not that easy with the manifold on.... once loosened the coolant rail you can remove the thermostat housing. You open it (3 bolts) and replace the old thermostat with new. All 3 gaskets should be replaced, to minimize the risk of leaks. Apply silicone lubricant on the O-rings, then fit housing + coolant rail back in.

----------

This will help you.Thanks.Helpmech.

1987 HONDA ACCORD LX WATER LEAK


Yes, there is a "bypass outlet" coolant hose that connects from the water pump inlet pipe (metal pipe that runs from back of water pump along engine block to lower radiator hose) to the intake manifold.

I am not sure about the "black box" - not enough detail.
