Yes it will but you are going to have to get a longer hose to replace it. for the pressure to even back out though you are going to need to get a smaller diameter hose if going more than 50% of the total length of the original.

You have to bleed the coolant system.There are some bleeder screws,with hex heads on them.Hold the bottom nut and gently loosen the top until water and air flow,with the system not running.When the air is not present,tighten back down gently.If the air won`t bleed out,then fill the coolant reservoir over the full mark about 3/4 way full.Make sure radiator is full,and start engine with ac off.Let it run befor it bubbles or gets too hot,turn engine off,and let it set for about 35 to 45 minutes.Check coolant reservoir to see if the coolant level has dropped.It should have dropped,if so repeat until the reservoir stops loosing fluid.The fans should come on,and go off by them selves.When this happens,then the cooling system is perfect.This I hope helps,please let me know the

Cant find the thermostat on a 93 honda accord

the thermostat is located at the end of the bottom radiator hose where it connects to the engine. You need to disconnect the air filter housing tube and 3 hoses. One water and two vacuum hoses. Two horizontal bolts disconnect the housing that holds the thermostat. The factory thermostat is 172.4 degrees F. or 78 degrees C. During installation make sure air bleeder hole (very small, looks like a loose rivet)in the thermostat is up. It is relatively easy to do. Hope this info is helpful.

Location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.
