Re: cant locate my thermosta
FOR EITHER ENGINE(2.2I4 OR 2.7LV6) THE THERMOSTAT IS LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE ENGINE ABOVE THE TRANSMISSION BELL HOUSING, AND NO IT IS NOT VERY HARD TO CHANGE. YOU WILL HOWEVER NEED TO REMOVE THE AIR INTAKE TUBE AND POSSIBLY THE AIR FILTER BOX TO GAIN ACCESS

First off are you sure you installed the thermostat right side out ? It is easy to install backwards . Second is make sure you filled your cooling system up completely . I usually fill the system and run with cap off for about ten minutes and add coolant as needed till it stays full .
first make sure car is coollllllllll follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the motor it will connect to a elbow there will be two bolts of the thermosta housing remove these two bolts under the housind will be a thermostat and a gasket replace both make sure to clean the surface good where the old gasket seated for proper seal of the new gasket
the thermostat is usually located on the top of the engine where the coolant hose goes into the engine thermosta is uner this hose i had a 2003 rodezvous but never had to change the thermostat so I could be wrong abut the loctaion of thermostat but on most vehicles that is where it is located if it is where i said you must release clamp make sure it is cold try to catch coolant in a small container so it does not get all over engine will not lose a lot just what is in hose then remove housing bolts and remove thermostat also you must replace gasket on housing as well ,this is a must
well if u changed thermosta did u noticed if both were same & had little hole on top of the old 1 lot of times aftermarket dont have them & u need to drill 1 urself same spot....or could b heater core going out
