Thermostat location

According to the book, the 4 cyl and V6 engines have the thermostat under the outlet at the end of the upper radiator hose. Nothing said about a power steering pump being in the area.

1993 toyota camry change thermostat

You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing which is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts (not the hose) and lift the housing to expose the thermostat (may require a little prying with a screwdriver or similar tool). Note how the old thermostat is fitted (which end is up), lift it out of the engine, and then remove all traces of gasket from the housing and the engine. Install the new thermostat and gasket, replace the bolts, add coolant as necessary, and you're done.

1993 Honda Accord No Heat/Defrost

You will have to drain the radiator. Drain at bottom.
Then, follow the top radiator hose back to where it connects to the engine.
The part with the two bolts in it that the hose connects to is the thermostat housing.
You may have to remove the hose in order to remove the housing.
When you have removed the housing, note the position of the thermostat before you remove it.
When installing, use new gasket, etc.
(you might be able to get away with not removing the radiator hose, but it is recommended)
Be prepared for a bit of spillage when you remove the housing.

Change thermostat on gm 3400 v6

Drain coolant at the radiator drain. Remove air intake hose and MAF sensor assembly. remove throttle cable bracket and disconnect cable linkage. Remove throttle body bolts and disconnect coolant hoses to throttle body. Loosen heater hose pipe and remove heater hose from rear of pipe. Remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Remove top thermostat housing bolt. Loosen and almost remove lower thermostat bolt. You will need to slide your wrench and hand under the exhaust crossover pipe to gain access. Loosen the bolt until you can remove the thermostat housing, it should be slotted to clear the bolt. Replace the thermostat and reassemble. Bleed cooling system using the two bleed screws (one on thermostat housing and the other on the passenger side of the engine where the heater hose pipe comes out above the water pump.

Need to know how to change my thermostat on a 2002 mazda 626

The thermostat on the 2002 Mazda 626 2.5 liter V6 is located at the opposite end of the lower radiator hose (near the block). It is nestled between the air-cleaner assembly and the intake manifold (on the driver side). You have to first remove the air-cleaner housing (The top half has several things attached to it; you don't have to completely remove the top half - just sort of move it aside after it hans been unencumbered; the bottom half must be completely removed as this is the area you will be working in.) The thermostat housings' top half can then be ubolted from the bottom half but you can not remove it or pull it aside to gain access to the actual thermostat until you unbolt the ignition coil pack. Mazda uses a strange metal sleeve to protect the lower radiator hose (I assume that's what it's for). There are three bolts holding the pack on (if I remember correctly, two of them hold the sleeve in place as well). After you free the sleeve you can then move the thermostat housings' top half aside and pull the thermostat out. Good luck putting it all back together - it's sort of like a jigsaw puzzle. BTW this is by far the hardest thermo I've ever had to replace.
