Locate the Thermostat

  • Find the hoses that leave your radiator.
  • Trace the top hose back to your engine.
  • Locate the thermostat housing attached at the end of that hose. Verify the location in your owner's manual, as some manufacturers house the thermostat at the bottom of the radiator rather than the top. This makes removal far more difficult.

Replace the Thermostat Locate the clamp that secures the thermostat to the radiator hose. Unscrew this clamp and gently remove it from the engine. You might see radiator fluid or coolant come out of the hose at this stage, in which case you can catch it in a drip pan and dispose of it later on. Unscrew the bolts that secure the thermostat to its housing. Wipe out the inside of the hose with a rag to ensure it is free of debris. If anything falls into your radiator, it can result in expensive repairs. Replace the gasket. Install the new engine thermostat. Make sure the power unit faces the engine. Replace the bolts to secure the thermostat housing to the radiator hose. Reconnect the hose and tighten the screws in the clamp

How to replace thermostat in 1999 volvo


Don't just change just the thermostat... change the sensor located in the thermostat housing (if your engine is overheating). The whole works is located inside the timing cover. Sockets: You'll need a 10mm for the timing cover and the 3 bolts on the thermostat cover, and an 8mm for the sensor harness bolts. Then you'll need a 3/4 open end wrench for the sensor.

You need talking with the parts guy at the GM dealer You need the "new" style thermostat housing to be able to change just the thermostat. So I ordered a new thermostat housing assembly. Here is what I got, a new aluminum two piece housing and thermostat. Hopefully tomorrow I can get this car back on the road and out of my shop.

Need to change thermostat, any tips?


to change the thermostat follow the top radiator hose back to the block, remove the two bolts that go through the thermostat housing and lift it up, remove the old thermostat and replace a new one, including gasket. Make sure the engine is cooled down and the water drained before you remove thermostat. Most likely you have a 195 degree.

Changing a thermostat in a 1997 Oldsmobile Cutless


The thermostat is on the intake by the exhaust cross over. The crossover will have to be removed to get the thermostat housing out. If the intake gaskets are leaking fix them and change the thermostat while the intake is off. The only reason I say this is because the intake gaskets are a common problem.

Changing a thermostat


Follow the big water hose on top of the radiator to the engine blogk. Where it goes into the block there should be 2 or 3 bolts to remove the housing. When you change the thermostat you should also change the gasket. I hope this helps.you.
