Not sure what year you have but on my 1984 its on top of the engine. Under the dome at the end of the radiator hose. There are 2 bolts that have to be removed in order to get to the thermostat. On a 1998 model, follow the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose attaches to an aluminum elbow with a brass slotted screw on top (the slotted screw is loosened to let air out of the cooling system). Remove the two bolts to take off the aluminum elbow and there will be your thermostat.

Where is thermostat on dodge stealth?

People would tell me all the time that it was directly under the radiator cap. I thought this true until i actually took the time to figure it out myself. While it is technically under the cap you do not need to remove the housing the cap sits on. The thermostat housing is directly to the left of the radiator cap. You'll need to remove three 12mm screws. One screw is about an inch longer than the other two. Look for the down radiator hose, the thermostat is right in the housing it connects to.

Bleeding the coolant system intrigue?

Where the hose comes from your radiator all the way to your thermostat, you'll see a screm on the top of your thermostat. Fill your radiator, put radiator cap back on. Turn on engine and let it run for about 5 minutes. Then open screw to let accumulated air out of the thermo chamber. Air in there will cause the thermo to not function properly causing overheating. Do this until all air is out and nothing but water shoots out. That's it.

How do you replace a thermostate on a 1998 Bonneville?

First, drain off the radiator fluid to a level below the upper radiator hose. Then disconnect the hose from the water neck on the engine block (and from the radiator if you wish). Remove the water neck, and the thermostat is right there to replace (under the water neck on the engine intake). After replacing the thermostat and bolting down the water neck, reconnect the upper radiator hose, etc, warm the car up. add radiator fluid, then be sure to loosen the screw on the water neck that allows any trapped air in the water neck to escape. You should see a stream of radiator fluid exiting the vent on the water neck. Retighten the vent screw, and fill the radiator to the top and replace the pressure cap, and you should be good for a long time.
