Without taking it off its difficult to say but if its a plastic housing then renew it as these plastic housings to tend to crack with age and dont forget the antifreeze

Thermostat gasket blown


Is it all one piece, the outlet pipe and the t-stat housing? The gasket goes on the bottom of the housing where it mates to the engine. If the coolant is leaking from the bottom of the housing, that would require a new gasket. If coolant is leaking where the radiator hose connects to the pipe, have you tried tightening the hose clamp?
If the outlet pipe and housing are separate, there may be an O-ring seal between them. You may want to pull off the radiator hose and check if the pipe is so badly corroded and rusted that it cannot seal anymore, or may have a hole in it, especially if it is thin metal.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 cavalier 2.4?


Things You'll Need:
  • Wrenches and sockets
  • Torque wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  • Gasket scrapper
  • Antifreeze
  • Screwdriver
  1. 1

    Follow the lower radiator hose to where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is where the opposite end of the lower radiator hose mounts to the engine.

  2. 2

    Drain enough coolant from radiator until it is below the thermostat. Failure to do this will result in your antifreeze leaking out onto the ground.

  3. 3

    Loosen clamp and remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Some antifreeze will leak out, so have some rags available.

  4. 4

    Remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing on and pull the housing from the engine. The gasket might make it a little difficult, so do not be afraid to pull hard. Do not strike it with any tools as you can crack it.

  5. 5

    Remove the old thermostat and note its alignment.

  6. 6

    Place a rag in the thermostat's mounting hole so no gasket material can enter the engine and then scrape the gasket from the housing and the engine.

  7. 7

    Install the new thermostat in same position as old one.

  8. 8

    Reinstall the housing and tighten down bolts snugly. Torque them with your torque wrench to 10 ft.-lbs. Make sure you do not over-tighten them.

  9. 9

    Reinstall the radiator hose to thermostat housing and tighten the clamp.

  10. 10

    Refill the radiator with coolant and start the engine, allowing it to reach normal operating temperature.

  11. 11

    Check for any leaks at hose connection and thermostat housing. You can tighten them as necessary to stop any leaks.

  12. 12

    Stop the engine and allow it to cool down completely then check the coolant level. Add coolant as required.

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.

Coolant leak from thermostat housing.


HI, if the hose that's connected to the thermostat housing is dry all around, it is defiantly the housing gasket. Remove the thermostat housing to replace gasket with new

Now, if your car is running a bit hot, the thermostat may be stuck. in this case, replace the gasket and thermostat.
