The thermostat is located inside the steel thermostat housing, which is located on the front of the engine right in front of the throttle body housing and halfway between the alternator and a/c compressor. Remove the air intake assembly and remove the front bracket connected to the front two bolts of the throttle body. Then remove the two main bolts of the thermo housing. Lift up the thermo housing and you will see the thermostat sitting there.
Look at the radiator and find the big lead tubes. One of the will lead to the thermostat. You will know which one is the thermo because it will have some bolts that allow the cover that the tube clamps on to, to be removed. Usually on most models the thermostat is on the front of the motor (the front is where the serpentine belt is located). Usually between the heads. Thanks for asking!
Since the dryer runs, the thermal fuses are fine making a possible open circuit condition in any of the heating element, the cycling thermostat, and the high-limit thermostat. Remove the front panel to access the cycling thermostat on the blower housing, the high-limit thermostat on the heating element enclosure, and the heating element itself. Once accessed, check the continuity of the high-limit thermostat and the large terminals of the cycling thermostat. There should be continuity on both parts. Use a volt-ohmmeter and set it to the R X 1 scale. Continuity means zero resistance. Replace the part found with no continuity, i.e., open.
Check the resistance of the heating element using the same volt-ohmmeter set to the R X 1 scale. Replace the heating element should its resistance reads infinite (open).
The front panel can be removed by removing the four screws located vertically along the
inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to
the front shroud assembly.
Once the four screws are removed,
grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then
twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt
the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer. Reinstall it in reverse of the removal steps.
If you have a V8 the thermostat is located under the coolant inlet tube. The tube is located on top of the engine, in the front about center. The thermostat is hard to change.Locate the upper radiator hose on your radiator and follow it to the engine block it is located on the top front part of your engine and you must lean over the front and look down onto the block to see the thermostat housing.
Adjust each thermostat (one under the lower front cover, one under the upper front cover) at the same indication (thermostats may not have degree marks but warm, hot, very hot or A, B, C). Turning the screw clockwise is hotter. For safety sake, turn off the circuit breaker for the water heater at the house electric panel before removing thermostat covers.
You will need a 20 star bit screw driver and a tool to take off your radiator hose.Their are 4 screws on the front of your thermostat housing . Make sure your car is cool for at least an hour And you will Probably need to unclamp the top hose running to the thermostat housing.And Probably the hose up under the housing.Then with the 20 star bit screw driver unscrew the 4 screws in front of the thermostat housing.When you get the front of the thermostat housing off.The thermostat is right inside pull it out and replace.
