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!
The upper radiator hose connects to the thermostat housing . Loosen clamp and remove hose from housing nipple , there will be two bolts one on either side of the housing remove bolts lift housing and thermostat will be under it ,pay attention to the way it is facing before removing . remove old thermostat clean off old gasket seal install new gasket (it will come with the new thermostat ) install new thermostat face same direction as the old one was. reinstall housing and hose . refill radiator with antifreeze let car run till it warms to normal running temp check for leaks on hose and housing tighten clamp or bolts if needed if no leaks your done.
Hope this helps.
Follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. There will be a housing with two or three bolts holding it down. Remove the radiator hose from the housing, remove the bolts and lift the housing off. The thermostat will be sitting under the housing.
Changing StarterIts easy, jack the car up, secure the car with in the up position do not just rely on the jack to hold it up and you will see the starter on the passenger side of the car, its held on with 2 bolts. Disconnect the battery first, then loosen and remove the 2 bolts holding the starter in place. Slide the starter out, disconnect the wires coming from the battery. Reverse the procedure to replace the starter.
thermostat in a 99 maxima is right above the alternator. just look down and you will see a hose clamp and a hose. that's the thermostat housing. you will remove the whole housing (3 bolts),because that's the whole thermostat.
I just went thru this on mine... it is easiest to get to from the bottom right corner... remove the shields and it's right there... take the lower adjustment bolt out , the upper rear bolt and the upper outer bolt out , drop it down and swap wires and replace . Tip; a shorty phillips screw driver works well to allign the holes on the upper rear bolt. DO NOT tighten any of the bolts untill they are all in.
