You are right indeed it is called a thermostat housing.

It might be sealed with a gasket, or o-ring, or it might be sealed with silicone. The small line on it is probably a vent for purging air ouf of the cooling system.

Sorry, I do not know any part numbers, but any Daewoo dealer parts department should be able to find you one in a flash.

Some aftermarket parts stores (NAPA, Pep Boys to name a few...) might be able to find you one too, but I`m not 100% sure on this one... Sometimes Daewoo parts are hard to find aftermarket.

    If and when you buy, make sure to replace the o-ring, or gasket, or silicone.

    I`d also recommend changing the thermostat, and thermostat seal while you`re there and you have the coolant drained.

    Thermostats are a cheap item to replace and you won`t have to worry about it afterwards for a good while.

    As a fleet mechanic (cars and heavy trucks), any time I have the housing off for any reason, I replace the thermostat. Not because removing the housing usually damages it in any way, but as a preventive measure.

Where is the thermastat on 1995 toyota previa sc

If you look down at the engine and notice the larger black hose coming from the top of the radiator to the engine block. Where this hose connects to the engine is called the thermostat housing. If you take the hose off, and unbolt this housing, the thermostat is underneath and easy to swap out.

Just Loosen the Rad. Hose Clamp and Pull off the Hose from the Thermastat Housing.Then you'll have a couple bolts holding on the Housing,Remove the Bolts and The Housing should be FREE to come off.If its a Little Stubborn ,Lightly Tap on It with a Plastic or Rubber Hammer a nd it will come off.Your Thermastat is under the Housing.

After off Clean Both Surfaces on the Housing remove All the Old Gasket material and Gasket Sealer .Then just put your new thermastat housing in with the Spring part facing Up.

Put Gasket Sealer on The Thermastat Housing and Put new Gasket on and Line up your Bolts Holes.

Were is the thermastat on a 1996 maxima

Follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. There will be a housing with two or three bolts holding it down. Remove the radiator hose from the housing, remove the bolts and lift the housing off. The thermostat will be sitting under the housing.

How do i change the thermastat in a 1991 ford explorer. i hope i dont need a new radiator??

locate the hose that goes to the top of the radiator that hose leads to the thermostat, remove the hose, at the engine there is a water neck be careful as it is rather old and may have rust and is prone to break, remove the 2 screws that hold it in place, remove the water neck (thermostat housing) and remove the old termostat, scrap the housing and engine block from old gasket and silicone, add silicone to the housing and place thermostat in housing in circular ridge then place the gasket over the thermostat apply more silicon over the gasket and spread evenly, allow the silicone to set for a couple of mins and then put the housing back with the engine then connect the hose back and your all set; remember the thermostat part that goes into the engine should be the part with the spring, hope that helps
