FOR EITHER ENGINE(2.2I4 OR 2.7LV6) THE THERMOSTAT IS LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE ENGINE ABOVE THE TRANSMISSION BELL HOUSING, AND NO IT IS NOT VERY HARD TO CHANGE. YOU WILL HOWEVER NEED TO REMOVE THE AIR INTAKE TUBE AND POSSIBLY THE AIR FILTER BOX TO GAIN ACCESS

1989 nissan V6 pickup therostat location?


The lower radiator hose goes to the thermostat. If you follow it, it connects to a metal pipe, then back to a hose and right to the thermostat housing. They are hard to change though. Took me 3 hours to change mine.

Where is the thermostat located at, on a 3.0 v6 ,1996 ford taurus


The thermostat is located on the drivers side of the motor underneath a large wiring harness and is difficult to see. try following the top radiator hose backwards. Hope this helps....not too hard to change either.
DEPENDS. If it is the 24 valve OHC engine, the thermostat is on the passenger side, front, bottom of the engine. It's a little hard to get to but just two bolts.

I need to know the location of the Thermostat on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee,


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.

How hard is it to change a thermostat in a 1989 vw cabriolet?


Not a difficult job at all, just a tad-bit messy. Will need to follow the hose from the radiator to find the mounting location of the thermostat on the engine block.

Changing the thermostat


It's not hard, just a bit messy. Follow the top hose that runs from the radiator to the engine. Where it stops is the location of the thermostat. You will need to drain the coolant out of the radiator before you begin taking things apart. Be prepared to replace the coolant with new coolant mixed 50-50 with water when you are done.
Go to the parts store and get a new thermostat for that year/engine/model combination. Remove the hose from the thermostat housing, remove the housing and pull the thermostat out. Note how the spring on the thermostat faces. Clear out any gasket material that remains with a soft scraper -don't damage the area where the housing goes or it will leak. Put the gasket and thermostat in, put the housing back on and remember not to over-torque the bolts or when the engine gets hot bad things will happen. Replace the hose (is it time for a new one anyway?) and then refill the cooling system with antifreeze. Start the car and check for leaks.
