Replacing Thermostat Housing in 02 Ford Explorer V6 4.0L (upper and lower housing)
In this video I am showing the procedure I used to replace the entire lower and upper housing unit. Ford repair dept estimated 450.00 charge. I was able to do this for about 145.00. It was 98.00 for the complete lower and upper unit including the thermostat. The temperature sensor was also replaced but not shown in the video for about $15.00. It required about 2.5 gallons of antifreeze to refill the system at a charge of $30.00. Total repair costs = $145.00 and about 45min - 1hr labor. Hope this helps, just check for leaks and allow the system to work the air out of the lines. @ 5:26 I used the term washer.....I am referring to the rubber seal or gasket. Sorry for using the incorrect term :( No washers are used, only rubber gaskets or o-rings.

Chevy Aveo Plastic Thermostat Housing Leaks
Chevy Aveo Thermostat Housing Leaks. Got this car in that was running hot and leaking coolant. After inspecting the car I found a leak near the thermostat housing. I also noticed the housing was made of plastic and was one piece with the thermostat inside. Needing to change the thermostat I priced the one piece thermostat housing and it was over $80. After looking we found there is a aluminum replacement thermostat housing that is two piece and allows the thermostat to be changed. The best part is it is only half the price of the one piece plastic thermostat housing. I also noticed on the engine ,it had some pits where the o ring is supposed to seal. You also need to remove the washers on the factory bolts so they fit the new thermostat housing. Aveo thermostat car repair
