Best Answer

Usually just a socket (1/2 in or 13 mm or something near that) and a device for scraping off the old gasket material. You may need to remove other peripheral parts so that you can get to the thermostat, but the actual job is quite simple. Just make sure you put the new thermostat back in the proper orientation.

How do you change the thermostat in a 3.1 Chevy Lumina Car?

This is not an easy one to do. If you have nibble fingers, patients and the right tools you can do it. Removing the air filter box off the throttle body and out of the engine compartment will give you a little needed elbow room. Drain down the radiator and remove upper radiator hose from thermostat housing. Remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing to the engine. One of the two bolts will be a challenge to get to but it can be done. With bolts removed you can wiggle out the thermostat housing to expose the thermostat. Install in reverse order.

What is the average cost to replace a thermostat on a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country?

I have been working with a friend that needed to replace the thermostat on a Chrysler town and country 3.8 liter. Hers is a 2003 model. The thermostat itself is only $9.99, new gasket $1.00. The local dealer quoted $80.00 for a replacement that took about 30 minutes and minimal tools. The dealer recommended a cooling system flush and refill. Again I thought this was excessive at $140.00. I will say that although the thermostat was easy to replace, unfortunatly this was not the needed fix. This vehicle needed a water pump replacement.
