SOURCE: intake manifold sealant repair now leaking maybe oil? coolant b4

You need to remove the thermostat housing again. Then you will have to extract the bolts you broke off. You will need to drill and tap them so you can use an easy out to remove the broken bolts from the threads. Then you can clean up both mating surfaces and replace the gasket and the thermostat. Check to make sure you did not crack the thermostat housing or you may have another leak when finished. They are usually aluminum and break easily if too much pressure is applied or they are corroded and weak.

SOURCE: intake manifold leaking coolant at expansion tube nipple

It is pressed in. I usually just take the nipple out and run a threader into the hole and place a piece of threaded copper pipe into the newly tapped hole. The factory uses a thin steel tube and they rust out if the cooling system is not properly maintained.

drain the coolant -- undo the hose clips and remove the hose --undo the bolts holding the housing on and remove the housing, Replace the housing as they are mostly aluminium and it corrodes away and are not repairable.

What is behind the Thermostat? The piece that it bolt to.. Have a leak. How far back does it go. How do I remove it?


The thermostat is in the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold.
Is the intake manifold what you are talking about ?

I need to replace a thermostat on a 1986 suburban


when you're facing the engine its the biggest hose on your left going from the radiator to the intake manifold undo the hose clamp on the hose connected the intake manifold pull the hose off, undo the 2 bolts that hold the thermostat housing on (the part that you just pulled the hose off of) pull the thermostat out it will just be sitting there no wires or bolts holding it down, put new one in same way, scrape thermostat housing clean of excess gasket or gasket sealant aswell as the intake manifold. replace the gasket seal it up with high temp r.t.v sealant (gasket sealer) usually comes in a tube an the color is red. bolt thermostat housing back down connect the radiator house, check anti-freeze level an you're good to go

Need to replace the themostat


  • Remove the bolts that hold the thermostat housing onto the intake manifold of the MR2 with an adjustable wrench and pull up on the thermostat housing to remove it from the intake. The housing is still connected to the hose. Lift the thermostat housing and the hose up to drain the antifreeze back into the radiator.
  • 2 Remove the old thermostat from the hole inside of the intake manifold and replace it with a new one. Pull the thermostat gasket off of the top of the intake manifold and wipe the manifold clean with a towel.
  • 3 Place a bead of RTV gasket maker around the bottom edge of the thermostat housing and allow it to dry for 15 minutes. Place the thermostat housing back onto the intake manifold and bolt the housing back into place. Allow 15 more minutes of drying time and slightly tighten the bolts again. This will form a solid seal between the intake manifold and the thermostat housing.

    Saturn VUE 2003 Thermostat Housing--how to replace?


    I would recommend factory parts only for this application. Find a Saturn dealer and ask for the thermostat housing, and it should include the thermostat. It is an updated part due to the thermostat sticking issue. As far as replacing it, the thermostat is below the upper and lower intake manifold. You need to pull the upper manifold up out of the way. To do this remove the 6 T-30 bolts holding it in place. There is a connector they will be below the intake on your right, this needs to be unplugged before pulling the intake up too far. The lower intake may have internal or external torx bolts depending on the year and date produced. Remove all 12 bolts and pull the lower intake out and the thermostat will be on your left, between the cylinder heads near the timing belt cover. There is a solid tube that connects the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing, it is attached to the engine by an external torx bolt near the oil dipstick tube. Remove the hose from the transfer tube, then unbolt the tube and twist back and forth to remove. DO NOT pry on the bolt flange of the tube this will break off and then you will need a new tube. Keep twisting and pulling and the tube will come out. Once the tube is out simply unbolt the thermostat housing and install the new one. A couple tips for this, one is don't drain all the coolant, just remove the upper radiator hose from the transfer tube and drain whatever comes out of there. Draining all the coolant will introduce alot of air into the cooling system which will be tough to remove. All the air has to be out or the engine will over heat. You will only need maybe half a gallon of coolant if this procedure is followed. I also usually over fill the coolant a little to allow for any air trapped in the system to escape with out lowering the coolant level far enough to turn the low coolant light on. The labor for this job is about 2.5 hours for a professional, if you haven't done much work before allow at least double that to complete this job. Hope this helps.
