Question about 2003 Dodge Intrepid
Follow the upper radiator hose to the fitting it is attached to. It should have a dome shape to it. remove two bolts on either side and pull out thermostat housing. the thermostat is right there. Replace thermostat and gasket. Be sure to point large copper colored end with the bimetal spring towards the engine when installing new one. Replace housing cover and tighten down bolts. Start and run engine. at some point, the thermostat will open and the upper hose will begin to get hot to the touch. after this hot water is cycled into the radiator, one electric fan should kick on for about 30 seconds and shut off. This just cooled off the next incoming charge of water to go into your engine. To test your old thermostat place into a pan of nearly boiling water. you should see it open up if it works. If not, then you did the right thing and should run normal temps.
