I think i need to change the thermostat on my sportrak as the temp guage doesnt move and the heater blows cold. am i right? If so could anyone tell me how to find and change it as i am no mechanic. thanks.

EEK! First things first-have

EEK! First things first-have you still got water in the coolant system? If you have, is the water pump working? When the car is 'warm' check to see if the rad and which pipes are warm too. I haven't poked around much under my bonnet, so I couldn't tell you which ones go where, but you might be able to work it out.

thermo (EEEEEK)

Come on boys, help this guy out.

Its located above the alternator,
1st drain the system then
remove power steering pump assembly,then remove radator hose from inlet but first cover alternator so as to not get any water in it cos it dont like it,remove thermostat,clean all gasket sealant away fit a new thermostat with gasket and sealant assemble all back in reverse.
I hope this helps.


thanks for your advice, I will attempt to tackle it this weekend.
Fingers crossed.
