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!

Where is the thermostat and how do I change it?


Hello, don't know if I can help, but I will try. At the top of your radiator you have a larger hose that goes back to the engine. Follow this hose, it should take you right to the thermostat housing. Make sure the engine is cool. loosen the hose clamp and remove the hose from the thermostat housing. You should find 2 or 3 bolts, ( I'm not sure how many on the Liberty ), that you can remove to take the thermostat housing off. When you do you will see a little round disc, ( approx. 2 inch in diameter ), BEFORE REMOVING, MAKE CERTAIN YOU PAY ATTENTION TO WHICH SIDE IS UP! When you take it out you'll see it looks a little bit like a tiny spaceship. Before you put the new one in make sure you clean the surface area very well, many thermostats come with a seal, or a gasket, make sure you use it, then put the new thermostat in, put the housing back in place and bolt it down, ( DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN BOLTS ), ONLY TIGHTEN WITH ARM STRENGTH, NOT YOUR WHOLE BODY. DO NOT USE GASKET SEAL, IT'S NOT NEEDED UNLESS IT IS RECOMMENDED BY THE THERMOSTAT MANUFACTURER.
I hope this info will prove useful for you.

Over heating, i tried a new thurostat but did not help the over heating,


clogged radiator? bad water pump...cooling systems are quite simple...water circulates through the engine under the force of the pump...even if the thermostat is working it still needs the pump to move the water...still have the old thermostat? put it in a pot of cold water on the stove and turn on the burner...see if it opens at the proper temp setting...if the old one does you dd not need a new one..oh, I have installed brand new thermostats that were bad...

How to Change a Thermostat in a 1999 Oldsmobile silhouette


Hi to change your thermostat ..disconnect your battery .follow the top rad hose to you motor .where the hose connects to the top of your motor there is a thermostat under neath the thermostat housing remove rad cap ..when cool only ....drain rad ,bottom of your rad there is a bleeder . use a good leak proof container to keep antifreeze from going on the ground ...if you spill any ..make sure you wipe it all up ...it is very poisonous to small animals ect
You will have to gain access to your thermostat ,so remove all things that are in the area where the hose goes too ...the motor .First remove the hose connected to the thermostat housing ..remove thermostat housing ...usually a few bolts ....under neath there is a thermostat ....and a gasket ..once you remove the thermostat ....be sure to put the new one back the same way you took the old one out ....plug the hole with a small rag ....any extra rad fluid spilling on the motor ect ...wipe it up it is corrosive ...to wires ect
Before changing the new thermostat ...use a scraper to clean the area where the gasket sits ,put a small cloth in the whole before you clean to make sure you don't leave any dirt in the hole ...i usually use a shop vac to clean the area after i finish scraping the area ...
buy a good gasket sealant ...new thermostat should come with new gasket ....put new gasket sealant on the gasket so it will not move while trying to install the thermostat housing,be sure to line up the holes in the gasket ...to where the bolts will be installed later . Place new thermostat in then your new gasket ..in the hole .also remember to clean the thermostat housing too ...before reinstalling ....tighten bolts by hand first hand ,use a ratchet....after tightening ....tighten about a half turn ...don't over tighten ,you could break the bolts ,and it's not good to over tighten because of the new gasket also ...put back rad hose to thermostat housing tighten well ,then tighten bleeder on rad ...if you havent changed your antifreexe in some time, buy new antifreeze ..if you are not sure how to mix it ..buy pre mixed antifreeze,fill rad ,connect battery ...start motor ....set heating controls to max ...and blower to the highest setting ,keep filling rad while motor heats up ..it will bubble some ....once you feel the rad is completly filled ...put rad cap on properly ...in your resorvior where you put antifreeze in, fill it to where it should be filled too ..there is usullay a mark to tell how much it can be filled to .check inside your vehicle to see if ther effecient heat comming out your vents .it might take a few days or so for the air to come out of the rad ...ect ....also in a day ..check to see if there are any leaks ...tighten things up more if need be .....
good luck ...let me know how you make out ...
Just to let you know ...you can buy an all season thermostat so you will not have to change it every different season from summer to winter ....

HOW DO I TO RELACE THE THERMOSTAT ON A 2002 INFINITI G20


Follow top rad hose from the top of your rad,the rad hose going to your motor is where you will find the thermostat ..you may have to remove things to gain access to it ...make sure you clean the area well before installing a new one ..try not to get any thing in the hole where the thermostat sits ..if you do a shop will get it out ,i always try and put a cloth in the hole so ,nothing gets inside of it ...once cleaned remove cloth ..a wee bit of gasket glue helps to keep it in place and always change it with a new gasket too ...do not put the thermostat up side down ...put the new one in the same way you took it out

My montero keeps overheating. I put a new


These newer engines and air lock when changing the thermostat. Somewhere in the thermostat housing you should see some kind of a plug. You need to do this while engine is cool. Take the cap off the radiator. Remove the plug. You should get air out of the system. Keep letting air out as you put more coolant if needed. When all the air is gone put the plug back in and top off the radiator and you should be good to go.

Grand vitara radiator over heating


I have had brand new Thermostats that are bad. The way to check a thermostat is to boil it in water and see when it opens. You may need to have your radiator cleaned or roded out. You can also remove your thermostat and see what happens then I would start by flushing the system and see what you get.

The thermostat housing separated, or blew apart would be a better way of putting it. Im sure it needs a new housing but I cant figure out how to put a new thermostat into the new housing. This is a 2005...


This is a notorious Aveo problem, These are poorly made.You need a new thermostat housing it includes the thermost on the 04-05' Aveo. It is all one sealed part from the factory.The original part is made of plastic. Chevy has an aluminum one now that won't break but it's MSRP price from the dealer is $91.78 got one and put it on my mothers car works fine now. So you can't just put a new thermostat in it you need the whole housing which already has the thermo. in it.
