Thermostat replacement is the the thermostat off the upper or lower hose from the radiator? Must I remove the front right tire to acess it

Posted by on

That is incorrect. The thermostat is where lower radiator hose enters the engine. A haynes manual for toyota camry is very helpful to have. You don't have to remove the tire but do have to remove the windshield reservoir, drivebelt and some engine mounting pieces. More clearence you have, easier it will be.

Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!

The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant from the radiators lower radiator hose.
Thermostat :
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is removed ).
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.

You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,

ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.

1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator hose, fill cooling system.

thermostat # 17670-77E00
lower radiator hose #17854-65G20
hose clamp #09401-36403
upper radiator hose # 17852-65G20

How do i locate a thermostat for a 95 buick riviera and how do i replace the radiator and thermostat myself. thank you


Generally the thermostat housing is what the upper radiator hose connects to. It can be held in place by 2-4 bolts. When you unbolt it, the thermostat is right underneath and puls right out. Take note of the orientation of the old thermostat and ensure that you put the new one in the same way. To remove the radiator first remove the upper and lower hoses, then remove the transmission cooling lines. You will need to remove the fan shroud and the upper crossmember that secures the radiator at the top. When that's done, simply lift the radiator oout. Reassemble in reverse order. When you refill the cooling system, use ditilled water rather than tap water.

Is the thermostat on a 02 trailblazer with a straight 6 located on the end of the upper or lower radiator hose?The haynes manuel is saying upper and the guys at auto zone are telling me lower behind the...


It's upper, behind the alternator, so you're both right in a way. Upper is for the cooled coolant to go back into the engine, which has to go through the thermostat first. 2 ways to remove it are, 1. remove the alternator and then you'll have access to the thermostat. The other is to remove the front dirvers side tire to gain access. Might still need to remove the alternator for clearance.

Replace thermostat


Two big hoses attach to your radiator. Look for the one that goes back to the TOP of the engine. There is a housing with two bolts in it that the hose connects to. Drain radiator, remove hose. Remove the two bolts. Remove the housing. Thermostat is inside housing or still on engine. It just pulls out. Remove any remaining thermostat housing gasket material from the housing and the engine. Install new thermostat. Should only fit in one way. Install new thermostat housing gasket and the housing. Reattach hose and fill radiator, leaving the cap off. Turn on the car and wait until car gets to warm condition. You will see the water start to move from the radiator to the engine when the new thermostat releases at the proper temperature. Replace the radiator cap and clean up, you are finished.
