Hello Friend:

Your Thermastat is located in a Dome Shaped Housing,just take your hand put it on upper radiator hose and follow it to the engine ,you'll run into a hose clamp around the hose thats holding it on the Thermastat Housing.

Make sure your car is cold, then put a pan underneath vehicle below the thermastat housing,You'll loose a Little Coolant ,So this Way you can catch it.

Just Loosen the Rad. Hose Clamp and Pull off the Hose from the Thermastat Housing.Then you'll have a couple bolts holding on the Housing,Remove the Bolts and The Housing should be FREE to come off.If its a Little Stubborn ,Lightly Tap on It with a Plastic or Rubber Hammer a nd it will come off.Your Thermastat is under the Housing.

After off Clean Both Surfaces on the Housing remove All the Old Gasket material and Gasket Sealer .Then just put your new thermastat housing in with the Spring part facing Up.

Put Gasket Sealer on The Thermastat Housing and Put new Gasket on and Line up your Bolts Holes.

Drain the coolant, remove the upper radiator hose, unbolt the thermostat housing from the engine, clean all metal surfaces, install a new thermostat, reattach the thermostat housing, install a new upper radiator hose, refill system with coolant, start car and let it idle for a good while before driving to burp the air pockets out of the system, monitor the coolant level. Look in your manual AND call a dealer to see if you should use the orange or green coolant. These are notorious for having a bad gasket on the intake manifold which sucks coolant into the engine so do not be surprised if your thermostat replacement does not fix your issue.

How to change thermostat on 2001 rav4


  • The thermostat on a Toyota RAV4 is located inside the engine coolant container. To reach the thermostat, open your hood and locate the coolant filler cap. Open the cap and then drain enough coolant so that the coolant level is below the thermostat housing. You should be able to identify the thermostat as a circular cap attached to the inside of the coolant container

Need to change thermostat, any tips?


to change the thermostat follow the top radiator hose back to the block, remove the two bolts that go through the thermostat housing and lift it up, remove the old thermostat and replace a new one, including gasket. Make sure the engine is cooled down and the water drained before you remove thermostat. Most likely you have a 195 degree.

Changing a thermostat in a 1997 Oldsmobile Cutless


The thermostat is on the intake by the exhaust cross over. The crossover will have to be removed to get the thermostat housing out. If the intake gaskets are leaking fix them and change the thermostat while the intake is off. The only reason I say this is because the intake gaskets are a common problem.

Follow the big water hose on top of the radiator to the engine blogk. Where it goes into the block there should be 2 or 3 bolts to remove the housing. When you change the thermostat you should also change the gasket. I hope this helps.you.
