Best Answer

Most vhicles you have to take the coolant hose off that leads into the engine block and replace the disc that`s under the housing. Above is correct - but to elaborate - you'll probably see a rounded bulbous housing with 2 or 3 nuts attaching it to the engine. under this is a very simple heat activated coil that makes a little door/valve go up or down to open and close the flow. It is very easy to replace. you generally need to get a new gasket for the meeting between this housing and the engine. it is also veru inexpensive ( a few dollars). They come in different temperatures. The higher the temperature, the later it opens to provide engine cooling, allowing the engine to run warmer. Not uncommon to change from a high temp one in winter to a lower one, (hoter external temps mean you want the engine to cool faster/more), in the summer.
