Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 Chevy Z24?
it is right underneath the water pump were it conectes to the bock, there should be a flat pipe that goes under youroil pan that leads to it
The thermostat is located on the passenger side of the engine. It you follow the top radiator hose to the engine, it is clamped to a housing. The thermostat is inside this housing. The housing is bolted to the engine block. There is a gasket to seal between the two parts. If you remove the housing, the thermostat just drops out.
It is in a very bad spot at the back passenger side of the engine below/ beside the exhaust manifold. Probably have to get to it from underneath the car, and removing the metal coolant pipe that goes under the engine up to the back. There is 2 8mm? or 10mm bolts that hold the metal pipe on and the thermostat is in there. Good luck!

On the Z24 it is located in the center of the engine, front side, underneath the air intake. From below, you can find it up and on the driver side of the oil filter. When you disconnect it, locate the crank sensor that is also to the driver side of the oil filter and yet behind the starter. It tends to come unplugged when you drop the old starter out.
