This is the 30v engine (the valve cover dress-up panels should say "5V" on them, for five valves per cylinder). On this engine, the thermostat is buried in the front of the engine, and requires serious disassembly to reach. The front of the car must be swung open into what is called the "service position" to allow easy access to the front of the engine, and then the fan, accessory belt and tensioner, and timing covers have to be removed. Access to the thermostat is partially blocked by the timing belt tensioner, so that will likely have to come off too. If you're going to change it all, you might as well put on new parts and get your timing belt service out of the way. You can buy complete kits for the timing belt service online at a variety of supply shops for about $250. It seems ridiculous to do this much work to change a $14 part, but unfortunately that's the reality of this engine.

Where is thermostat in a 2002 2.7 liter sebring

Locate the upper radiator hose on the radiator, follow it back to where it connects to the motor and disconnect it from the motor. Now, look at the coupling it was mounted to and you should see 2 bolts, 1 on each side, remove those and lift that coupler off and the thermostat is located under it.

I have a 2004 Audi A4 1.8 liter turbo. I am trying to replace the thermostat. I cannot find the location of the thermostat, and have no idea what to do when changing it. Can you please help?

The Thermostat should be located in the back of motor in the same housing as the water pump. There is a cover that has a couple small bolts that you take off and replace the thermostat and the gasket.

Looking to do a motor swap in a 98 sunfire...what motors fit?

It is true, you can only put another 98 2.2 liter in it. They did come with a 2.4 liter but you have to swap the motor, transmission, wiring harness, computer, and God knows what else. I would go with the 2.2 liter and check into some performance aftermarket parts for the 2.2, computer chip, performance exhaust and so on, somewhere like Summit Racing.

Not sure where the thermostat is on my 98 cadi sevile

To locate the thermostat, follow the top radiator hose to the cylinder head, it should be attached to a domed ali. cover, with 2,3 or 4 bolts. This is the thermostat cover, remove hose and undo the bolts, lift off, can be tight as there is a paper gasket between the cover and head. Take note of the way the thermostat sits in. The thermostat literally just rests there.

The thermostat is located in the water pump next to the 2 heater hoses. I think you have to buy the housing to get a thermostat. Not serviced seperately.
