If you question the condition of the thermostat, just replace it, they're cheap enough.
show pic's of replacing thermostat on dodge durango
you shouldn't just follow your coolant hose
The thermostat on a 4.7L is under the housing where the lower radiator hose hooks to the engine.
Contrary to every other car and truck that I have worked on, the 2004 Dodge Durango has its thermostat located on the bottom radiator hose. A close inspection of the bottom hose where it connects to the engine will show you the thermostat housing.
Should be at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
i had a Dakota with the V8 .and if it is like the 97 dodge Dakota it will be on the housing from the top radiator hose
99 Durango doesn't have a Heater Control Valve, It only has a thermostat
Usually in a housing located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose I have an 01 Durango with a 4.7 and the thermostat is in the lower radiator hose at the engine end.
i want to replace the auxiliary water pump on my 2005 dodge durango. will you please provide a video to show me exactly where it is located and how to replace it? thank you
Try in the housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
