Try taking the bolt out,
cleaning it
coating the threads with RTV sealant (available at car parts store, walmart)
put bolt back in
torque
let the sealant cure (see instrutions on tube of rtv)

Leaking antifreeze from around top of motor behind the thermostat


Many thermostats have a gasket installed between the thermostat housing and the engine block / waterpump. If the the thermostat is bolted securely - you may need to remove the thermostat and replace the gasket. While you're there - swap out the thermostat too. It's one of those "Two birds / one stone" kind of thing. See the "..Blown Head Gasket..." link below.

I can't get the thermostat housing off the engine to replace the thermostat. i've removed the bolts, upper radiator clamp and hose from the elbow going to the housing and it is loose, but it wo'n tcome off...


The thermostat is not under the upper housing. The thermostat is behind the lower housing that the lower hose is connected to.

If you are changing the upper housing known as the water outlet housing because it is leaking you are on the right track. You will need to remove the intake plenum on top of the engine and the upper radiator support. You will then be able to access the bolt on the backside of the engine that bolts the pipe retainer in place and disconnect the hose from the pip. The upper radiator support needs to be removed in order fro there to be enough clearance to pull the whole assembly out.

Cars over heating leeking coolent for the bottom and not sucking in form the resivor and not leaking form hoses


Change the thermostat. Follow upper radiator hose to where it meets the thermostat housing on the engine. Remove the 2 or 3 bolts that hold on the housing, then replace the thermostat and seal and put housing back on. With cap still off, vehicle running and warm, then fill up the coolant system. Make sure there is not air pockets by burping the hose when adding the fluid.

Car heating up coolent boiling fan comes on ''no coolent in the oil 2.4 1997 sunfire were and how hard is it to change the thermasta


the thermostat is in the housing where the top radiator hose goes onto the motor, it isn't that difficult to replace all you have to do is remove the top hose from the housing,undo the bolts take the housing apart remove the thermostat & clean both surfaces with a suitable scraper or sand paper,fit the new thermostat then the new gasket & put the housing back together & refit the top radiator hose.
a couple of things to careful of : 1. DO NOT try to force the bolts to much as they may break 2. DO NOT over tighten the bolts when tightening......hope this helps......cheers

Water/coolent leaking from behind the timing cover


Water pump is on the left side of the timing belt in the cover and spins on an O-ring to adjust the belt. Their is a coolant pipe to the the thermostat housing behind the timing covers backing plate also. Be sure to replace the timing belt with the tensioner/ oil seals along with the water pump. Remove the timing covers back plate and you will find two bolt to the pipe as mentioned. It has a large o-ring behind it. Have fun with this one. From: Ronnie Wrench

Replace the water outlet housing. Most likely not covered, but doesn't hurt to ask.
