No heat or very little heat

I thought I would change out the thermostat, but for some reason I can not locate the thermostat! I followed the lg. hose running from radiator to engine, remove the two screws and the housing is empty , it appears the sensor connected is melted. The thermostat I bought does not even lineup to the area. I am stumped!

Does anyone have any help or answers to locate this thermostat on this sebring 2003, 2.7 convertible?

Yes, it is the the hose that comes out the bottom of the radiator, follow it to the engine should be 4 bolts. You will probably have to remove the Air intake manifold to work in there. Thats how it is on my 98 sebring 2.5 L not sure how much different the 2003 2.7 is.

No heat or little heat is generally a low level of coolant in the system. Pls. chk. the level before going the extra mile of replacing the thermostat.

How do you change thermostat and where is the location

remove the coolant cap to relieve the pressure. Follow the radiator hose to the motor. The metalic/aluminum part that the hose is connected to holds the thermostat. 2 or 3 bolts hold it to the engine. remove these bolts & the thermostat. there may or may not be a gaket with your model. If so, replace them both. You will lose some coolant. add coolant when you're done, Make sure the engine is cold when u do all this.

Need to locate the thermostat, where is it located?

Open the hood of the truck, and look at the top radiator hose. follow that hose to the engine. where the hose meets is called the thermostat housing cap. remove the hose, unbolt the two bolts, and gently pop the cap. your thermostat is right there, easy to change. about 30 minutes. just make sure you clean the cap and the housing for the thermostat real clean(down to shiny metal). new gasket and thermostat, and your in business. hope this helps

Where is the thermostat located on the 1998 accord ex 4cyl? I have noticed the temp gauge rising repidly in only a 1-3 mile drive, I thought the thermostat may not be opening and wanted to change it.

Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. The place where the hose mates the engine is the thermostat housing, and of course, the thermostat is inside it. Another reason for rapid temperature increase is that the electric radiator fans are not turning on when the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

How do i replace the thermostad

Hello, if im not mistaken you will have to remove the battery and the tray it sits on, or at least i founded easier that way. Follow the upper hose to where it meets the engine, thats your Thermostat housing, remove the 2 bolts, remove the housing and there you have it. Also a good idea to get new gasket for the housing and thermostat. hope this is helpful

The thermostat housing is located by grabbing the upper radiator hose, and following it back to the engine block.
The housing that the hose is connected to is the thermostat housing.
Changing the thermostat will fix your problem!
