I need a diagram to replace the thermostat

I seriously doubt if you will find the diagram that you are asking for. The thermostat is very easy on most vehicles. Simply follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. This would be the thermostat housing. The thermostat hosing is held on by 2 bolts. Remove the 2 bolts and remove the thermostat housing. The thermostat will be under the housing. Pull the old thermostst out and clean the gasket surfaces on both the engine and the thermostat housing. install the new thermostat and thermostat housing gasket and reinstall ithe thermostat and bolts. On some of the Dodge vehicles it is necessary to remove the alternator and/or power steering pump/ A/C compressor brackets to access the thermostat housing bolts.

I am trying to change the thermostat in my 1989 nissan maxima. im not sure if i put it in the top or bottom hose. please help. i need to find a diagram but am having trouble locating one.

Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block. There should be a roundish metal housing at the end of it. Put a bowl underneath to catch any fluid and take off the bolts(try a 10mm socket or wrench) that hold the thermostat housing to the head. Then just pull out the thermostat and scrape off the old gasket. Put the new thermostat on spring-side toward engine, just like the old one. Make sure to use a new gasket! Then push the housing back over it and tighten the bolts. Add any anti-freeze necessary and your done!

Car is overheating, im trying to change the water pump and the thermostat. but i cant get the water pump off, and i cant find the thermostat

The thermostat is at the back of the engine, the upper radiator hose is connected to the thermostat housing, there are 3 10mm bolts holding it on. I'd check for maybe a missed bolt on the water pump, I know there is alot of bolts holding it on.

Where is the thermostat located in the 199 venture and how difficult to change is there anywhere I can find a diagram

The thermostat is loacted in the thermostat housing under the throttle body on the intake manifold.

Here is the official GM method. Hope it helps. Also be sure to completely bleed the system of air.

  • Remove the air intake tube from the throttle body to air cleaner box.
  • Drain the coolant till level is under the thermostat level.
  • Remove the crossover exhaust pipe and radiator hose from the housing.
  • Remove the top bolt and loosen the bottom enough to wiggle the housing out.
  • Remove the thermostat housing and thermostat.
  • Clean matting surface.
  • Install thermostat and housing
  • Add RTV sealer to bolt threads
  • Tighten bolts to 18 lb ft.
  • and install everything else in revers
  • Re fill coolant and work air out of cooling system
  • Start the engine and inspect for any coolant leaks
Do not add radiator stop leak to coolant system, The rubber gasket on the thermostat will eventual stop the leak when it warms up and re tighten the thermostat housing bolts after the engine cools down.

Good luck and keep me posted.

I have a 1995 ford escort lx 1.9 and need to know where the thermostadt is located and how difficult to change

It's fairly simple to change. Remove the water hose from the thermostat, remove the 2 bolts and lift away (may need a flat head screwdriver to pry away from thermostat housing). Below is the diagram for your thermostat. Best of luck.

Need to change my thermostat on my 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD

I do not know a link to a diagram, but I can certainly tell you how to find the thermostat! Looking at the front of the engine, there is a large water hose at the top of the motor that goes to the left, and attaches to the radiator. Not the radiator end, but the other end attaches to the thermostat cover. It has 2 bolts to take out and the little thing between that, and the motor about 2" around that kind of looks like a spinning top, is the thermostat. It is easy to change. Make sure you get ALL the old gasket off and that both bolts go through the new one, and you should be in business!
