Step by step replacing the thermostat


Break free 2 bolts on thermostat housing, loosen hose going into housing and clamp, it will leak some antifreeze. Once the housing is taken off block clean off old gasket material from both surfaces. The block and housing, be careful not to scratch the surfaces. No sharp pointy objects, aluminum is soft. Then take the old thermostat out and put in the new one. Put gasket in place ,align housing and put , bolts in by hand first, so it doesn't cross thread. Just snug bolts and top off system with antifreeze . Start engine ,put on heat and run until thermostat opens. Check for leaks, tighten bolts 1/4 turn should be fine. Add antifreeze in overflow bottle if needed.

How do i change my thermostat


Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. There you will find the thermostat housing, usually two bolts hold it to the engine. Go to the bottom of your radiator ,at left or right side you will find the radiator drain, remove about two quarts of antifreeze into a catch pan. This will bring antifreeze to a level below the thermostat. Then go back to thermostat housing,remove two bolts, lift housing, remove thermostat, scrap off old gasket, reverse process. replace antifreeze. Start engine and check for leaks. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How do I change a thermostat in a 2001 New Beatle VW


First you should drain the antifreez by opening the drain plug located by the lower radiator hose. Then take the upper radiator hose off. Then take the 2 bolts out that hold the housing on. Remove the housng and there is your thermastat. Accordind to VW they want you to put antifreeze on the o-ring I use RTV a little extra help sealing just don't put a lot on. The book says to put thermastat in housing and turn 1/4 turn to right. I'm not sure why but thats what it says. TIP If you close the drain plug now and put as much antifreeze in as you can makes it easyer to get air pockets out later. Mount your therrmostast housing back to block and tighten bolts. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can them put upper radiator hose back on. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can. Now come the hard part sometimes getting all the air out of the cooling system. Put the radiator cap on but loose run the engine till the cooling fan kicks on but keep checking the coolant level. WARNING ANTIFREEZE WILL GET ABOVE 200 DEGREES
both upper and lower radiator hoses should be hot and radiator full. If both hoses aren't hot you have an air pocket that you have to get out. To do this run the engine a couple minutes after the fan kicks on then turn engine off for 5 or 10 minutes and start over keep doing this till both hoses get hot and the air the fan is blowing is hot. Once this is doe yout ready to go. I hose off any antifreeze that got one car so if you see antifreeze under car you know something is leaking and not what was spilled. 254a047.pnga06a9b1.png

I need to no where and how to replace athermostat on a 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7 engine


Follow top radiator hose to motor. Thermostat is under housing that rad hose is clamped to. Drain antifreeze from rad after it has cooled down. There should be a drain **** on rad bottom. Using proper size socjket and ratchet, take out the bolts holdng housing then remove thermostat. Put new thermostat in same way as old one, put on a new gasket and replace housing. Be careful not to overtighten housing bolts. Refill with new antifreeze.

How to change a water pump on a 2001 ford escort


The water pump is on the front (right side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt.

Once the four bolts are loose, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasaket area and install new gaaket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley. Don't forget the antifreeze..
