I'm not getting any heat, i need to know how to change the thermistat


Hello sportster. Every make and model requires slightly different steps to change the thermostat but most of the steps are similar. That said, here is one set of steps. If this set is similar to what you have fine, if not get back with your model, model year and make.

How to change the thermostat


For 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0L SFI DOHC 8cyl check thie how to replace a Thermostat:

Parts:
1. Thermostat

Tools:
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Needle Nose Pliers
3. Screwdriver
4. Cooling System Pressure Tester
5. Socket Set
6. Radiator Hook Tool

Steps:
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the vehicle’s radiator.
o Tip: Make sure the vehicle has cooled down before inspection.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.


Step 2 Remove the vehicle’s radiator cap and use a radiator pressure tester to check for leaks.

Step 3 Drain out some of the engine coolant in the radiator so the coolant level is below the thermostat housing to prevent leaking when replacing the thermostat.

Step 4 If necessary, remove the upper radiator hose.
o Tip: A twisting motion may help to initially break the upper radiator hose loose. You can also use a flathead screwdriver to help pry the hose off. Make sure not to damage the hose.

Step 5 Remove the thermostat housing bolts.

Step 6 Remove the thermostat housing.

Step 7 Remove the thermostat.
o Tip: Make sure to note the way the thermostat is installed. Installing the thermostat backwards will affect how the cooling system performs.

Step 8 Clean the mounting surfaces. Install the new thermostat as it was removed and always use a new thermostat gasket.

Step 9 Reinstall thermostat housing and tighten mounting bolts evenly. If applicable, reconnect the upper radiator hose.

Step 10 Refill the cooling system with coolant.

Step 11 Start the vehicle with the radiator cap off and allow the engine to run for several minutes. This allows the air bubbles to escape the cooling system.

Step 12 Reinstall the radiator cap.

Step 13 Run the engine until up to normal operating temperature. Remember to keep an eye on the temperature gauge to prevent overheating.


Hope helps (remember rated)

Change the thermostat in the galant.


1. Raise the front of your Mitsubishi Galant with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Drain the coolant into a suitable container by opening the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.
2. Step 2 Follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the engine at the thermostat housing. Loosen the clamp at the engine end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing.
3. Step 3 Remove the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover and pull off the cover. Note the position of the old thermostat and remove it from the thermostat housing. Place a rag in the thermostat housing and scrape any gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover.
4. Step 4 Take out the rag and insert the new thermostat in the same position as the old one, with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new gasket or o-ring, depending on the type of thermostat you are installing. Note that most late 1980s and early 1990s Galant models use a thermostat gasket.
5. Step 5 Replace the thermostat housing cover and tighten the bolts. Re-attach the radiator hose and tighten the clamp. Fill the radiator with new coolant, or use the coolant drained from your Galant earlier if it's relatively new and clean.
6. Step 6 Start your Mitsubishi Galant and run with the heater on high until it reaches operating temperature. Make sure the heater is blowing warm air to ensure the thermostat is working properly. Check for leaks and tighten the radiator hose clamps if you detect any.

How to i change thermostat in 2005 trailblazer


The thermostat is located behind and slightly below the alternator on the drivers side. For the best access to the thermostat, you should unbolt and move the alternator to reach the upper bolt. The lower Thermostat bolt can be reached by taking off the front drivers side tire and reaching in with a 24" extension. The actual bolts are 10mm. Hope this helps...
