SOURCE: Overheating

Hi. I have put together a guide to help you with this replacement of the thermostat.

Step1 Raise your DodgeIntrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug atthe bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitablecontainer. Reuse the coolant if relatively new and clean. Step2Follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing in all enginetypes except the 2.7L. In Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lowerradiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at theend of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off thethermostat housing. Step3Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pulloff the cover. In 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access tothe thermostat housing behind the alternator by working from beneath the engine. Step4Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the newthermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any oldgasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install thenew thermostat gasket. Step5Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negativebattery cable. Step6 Start your DodgeIntrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reachesnormal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tightenthe hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.

  • Removethe alternator drive belt and bolts holding the alternator in place andset the alternator aside for easiest access to the thermostat in DodgeIntrepid 2.7L engines, if desired.
  • Don't drain the coolant from your Dodge Intrepid while the engine is hot.
Please rate and god bless.
