The 3.3L v6 also has the thermostat at the front of the cylinder head were the top radiator hose attach's the thermostat housing the procher is the same except for bleeding the radiator, to bleed the cooling system remove the coolant temp. sensor it is located just below the thermostat housing and fill radiator with new antifreeze until the antifreeze starts coming out the coolent tempt sensor hole them reinstall the sensor and top of radiator.........GOOD LUCK

Where to put the water in a Kawasaki ZXR 400 1994


The is a reservoir tank mounted under the fuel tank on the left hand side of the bike.

Notes:
1. always use 50:50 water/anti-freeze
2. don't fill tank past the max line (excess coolant will get dump out the bottom of the bike when hot, and coolant of slippery ;)
3. If loosing coolant, find out why. Damaged hose, blown head gasket or stuffed thermostat are like causes.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2003 mazda protege


Instead of just giving you an exact location because everytime i do this someone responds how do i do it after i gave answer and someone else gets credit for the question i will just give u exact installation instructions hope this is what ur looking for thanks Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack
  • 2 jack stands
  • Wheel chock
  • Antifreeze drain bucket (with spout and handles)
  • Thermostat and gasket replacement
  • Channel locks
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • 1 gallon of Global antifreeze concentrate or 2 gallons of 50 percent premixed Global antifreeze
  • Funnel
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet
  • 3/8-inch drive metric socket set
  • 3/8-inch drive 10-inch long extension
  • Gasket scraper
  • Safety glasses
  • Shop rags
  1. 1

    Park the Protege on a flat, paved surface, apply the parking brake and release the hood latch.

  2. 2

    Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear wheels, then open the hood.

  3. 3

    Lift the left front quarter panel of the Protege with the floor jack and place a jack stand under the front left frame rail. Repeat this for the right side to elevate the front axle of the Protege.

  4. 4

    If the car is cool, remove the radiator cap. Do not remove the radiator cap if the engine is hot or still warm. Allow ample time for the motor to cool down, and then remove the cap slowly.

  5. 5

    Put on safety glasses and crawl under the Protege. Locate the lower radiator hose, and loosen the clamp. Original clamps my be the type where you need to squeeze to tabs together to remove them, or they may be the kind that tighten and loosen with a screw. Use the channel locks for the tab kind or a screwdriver for the screw kind.

  6. 6

    Line up the drain bucket beneath the lower radiator hose and remove the hose. Be careful, because the antifreeze will come out quickly. Wipe up any spills immediately with the shop rags.

  7. 7

    Replace the lower radiator hose and resecure the clamp. Lower the Protege back to the ground.

  8. 8

    Remove the air cleaner assembly in the engine compartment if necessary to access the thermostat. Remove the lid first, then the filter, then the bolts at the bottom of the air cleaner box using the ratchet, socket and the extension.

  9. 9

    Disconnect the coolant temperature switch from the thermostat housing.

  10. 10

    Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing. Remove the mounting nuts, the thermostat housing, the thermostat and the gasket.

  11. 11

    Thoroughly clean the surfaces of the thermostat housing and the cylinder head housing with the gasket scraper. Take your time and get the two surfaces very clean.

  12. 12

    Insert the new thermostat into the cylinder head, making sure the pin is on top and the spring of the thermostat is in the cylinder head side. Install the new gasket so the print side of the gasket is against the cylinder head flange.

  13. 13

    Replace the thermostat housing and nuts, and tighten them securely. Do not overtighten, or you could damage the cylinder head.

  14. 14

    Replace the upper radiator hose and clamp. Replace the coolant temperature switch, and replace the air cleaner assembly.

  15. 15

    Make sure the drain bucket is beneath the radiator neck in the event antifreeze purges air bubbles from the system. Add new 50 percent mixed antifreeze and 50 percent water to the radiator. Add it slowly, using a funnel if necessary. When the radiator is full, start the engine with the radiator cap still off, and allow the Protege to reach operating temperature. Add antifreeze to the radiator as necessary. Fill the surge tank when through. Remove the wheel chock, release the parking brake and test drive. Recheck the antifreeze level a couple times and add as necessary

White smoke coming from exhaust


White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area. The cylinder is where the fuel and air mixture are being compressed and burned. Any amount of antifreeze that enters this area will produce a white steam that will be present at the tailpipe area.

If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.


How did antifreeze get in the oil or cylinder in the first place? The engine probably overheated and a head gasket failed due to excessive heat, thus allowing antifreeze to enter the cylinder (Where it is not meant to be).

More references in here.


Hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck..
