How Do I Change The Thermostat On A 2001 Hyundai Elantra

Posted in Cooling Perfomance
  • I found a few web sites with generic instructions that can apply to all vehicles, but I would feel more comfortable with a diagram or a web site that has pictures of this Elantra model. Anyone know any free resources?

      take the old one out and put a new one in, all you need to do is locate the thermostat housing usually at the end of one of the radiator hoses on my car it is literally at the end of the radiator return hose (top hose) take the housing off pull the old one out clean the old gasket off the housing and engine replace gasket and place new thermo in its seat replace housing over it and bolt it back down. this is really one of the easiest things to do next to changing the oil. if you need a picture for about 20 bucks at your local autozone you can get a chilton manual for it that has every diagram of the car there is.

      If you need a diagram to change the thermastat you probably shouldnt do it!

      What the other guy said is correct on how to change it.
