there is a big hose near the front of the engine with two bolts one on either side holding it down you take the bolts off when the car is cool and not running youll see the thermostat and paper seal remember what order they go in if the paper is on top of the thermostat or below it replace thermo stat with new one and paper tighten bolt top up rad fluid and good to go should be fine this link provides a pic of a thermostat parts http://rep.racepages.com/parts/racepages/wizard.jsp?year=1996&make=HY&model=ELA--004&category=G&part=Thermostat%20Gasket&dp=true&showdc=true

It depends on the vehicle. However, where the thermostat sits in the cylinder head or top hose, most vehicles only require a partial drain.

The thermostat for the cooling system can be found on the front of the engine. You can follow the bottom radiator hose to the thermostat housing. The thermostat will be within the thermostat housing.

the thermostat is located in the housing where the top radiator hose enters the engine. Note: there is also a brass screw on the top of the housing, this is to bleed the air from the cooling system when you replace the thermostat (or do other cooling system repairs)

Replace your thermostat whenever you replace the coolant and service the cooling system. Also replace it if you suspect it is sticking.

your thermostat in the cooling system is probably stuck open, you will need to replace your thermostat

It is an in line thermostat and is housed in a 'plastic ball' in the bottom radiator hose.

To change the thermostat-- * drain the cooling system down to thermostat level (or lower) * remove the two (2) thermostat housing bolts, and the housing itself * remove old thermostat, discard gasket and clean both gasket sealing surfaces (pay attention to the orientation of the thermostat when you took it out; it only works one way) * install the new thermostat * place new gasket onto water box surface, over the thermostat, and center the thermostat in the opening of the intake manifold * apply gasket sealant, if necessary * place the housing over the gasket and thermostat, and torque bolts down to 250 in. lbs. * refill cooling system to compensate for lost coolant

It is more likely to be the cooling system in the car. check you thermostat and coolant temperature. the coolant "DEXCOOL" tends to form sludge inside the cooling system(heater core). it may be clothed up.

The cooling system in the 198 Expedition includes the radiator and its reservoir along with the thermostat. This system included an oil cooler as well, depending on the model purchased.

The thermostat is located on the cooling system on a 2003 Toyota Corolla. The thermostat can also be found by following the upper radiator hose.

Low coolant? Cooling fan not working? Bad thermostat? Cooling system airbound? Water pump not circulating coolant? Radiator core plugged or restricted? Bad radiator cap?
