I actually own an Intrepid and planning to put a new engine in this summer, what size do you have?

Anyway to replace it
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
2. Drain the cooling system, save the fluid and reuse it as it shouldn't be bad
3. Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine to locate the thermostat housing
4. Using a radiator hose clamp pliers, remove the hose clamp, then detach the hoses from the thermostat housing. If they are stuck, grasp them near the end with a pair of adjustable pliers and twist it to break the seal, then pull off. If the hose is old or worn, then cut off and replace
5. Also replace the hose fittings if they look bad.
6. Remove the fasteners and detach the housing which has two pipes coming off of it and two bolts holding it on.
7. Look at how the thermostat is in the housing so you don't put it in backwards and replace with the new one.
8. Remove all of the old gasket and sealant from the housing and cover with a gasket scraper.
9. Install the thermostat and the gasket with the air bleed hole facing up
10. Install the housing and fasteners to the engine block and tighten the fasteners.
11. Reattach the hoses and replace the hose clamps
12. Refill the cooling system and start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature and check for leaks and proper thermostat operation.

    how is this inappropriate?

    Please let me know what questions you may have. I actually own a 1999 Dodge Intrepid with the 2.7L engine and am converting it to a 3.2L this week. I own two manuals for it and typed this directly out of the manual but have the car to actually explain anything I need to perfectly. Where did my solution go wrong?

2005 CTS-V WITH A CHEVY 350 OIL RUNS HOT ,WHI IS THERE A PLACE BESIDE THE OIL FILTER THAT LOOKS LIKE A OIL COOLER COULD BEEN THER BUT INSTED ITS TWO 10 MM BOLTS ON A PLATE UNDER IT LOOKS LIKE A OIL


Only one question? Is the temp sender telling the truth? When it tells you its hot can you sample the oil with a basic thermometer? After a run I would expect it to be around 80C, anything near 100C + is on the high side. Try checking it against a barbeque thermometer/ meat thermo to get some idea.

Is it ok to put non heated mirror over heated mirror


The replacement mirror that you buy at most auto supply stores are not to be used as a replacement for a heated mirror due to fact that the materials used to make the heated mirror are different. You will need to replace it with the same type of mirror from the dealer.

Car over heating.... changed water pump,raditor, milled heads,replace computer, flush block, thermo still over heats


YOU HAVE A THERMOSTAT THAT IS OPENING AT 195 (TO HIGH) TRY REPLACING IT WITH A 160 DEGREE IT WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO FLOW MORE FREELY, ALTHOUGH THE HEAT WILL TAKE A BIT LONGER TO HEAT UP, THE ENGINE WILL STOP OVER HEATING. YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT FROM BEGINNING.

Broken driver side view mirror-2005 camry


Heated mirrors usually have a symbol on them -- a small diagram showing squigley heat lines.

If you don't see this, it's probably not heated. But when you take the mirror off, if it's heated it'll have wires connected to the back.

Yes, you can replace a heated mirror with non-heated -- just leave the wires tucked out of the way when you install the new mirror.
