Where is the thermostat on 1994 dodge caravan?

how to change thermostatWhere is the thermostat on 1994 dodge caravan?
follow the top radiator hose down to the engine,it will lead to a housing and in that housing is the thermostat,if you,ll drain some of the coolant out before you remove the housing it will not make such a big mess other wise anti freeze will come pouring out of it,the drain is in the bottom of the radiator,good luck with it.Where is the thermostat on 1994 dodge caravan?

Follow the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator to where it goes into the motor, It should end with the hose attached to a short piece of metal pipe looking thing, Thats called the gooseneck. It should bolted to the engine block with 2 bolts, Thats where the thermostat is located, Take the bolts or nuts off very gingerly pry the housing off and you should see the thermostat. Pay attention how the thermostat is installed, should be spring side down, Take the old thermostat out and put a clean rag into the opening to prevent trash from getting inside the block and use a scrapper to remove the old gasket and make sure the ertire surroundings is clean, take the rag out of the opening and put the new thermostat in install new gasket and use silicone around the gooseneck and reinstall the gooseneck and be careful not to over tighten the huts/bolts as you could break the cast housing.Where is the thermostat on 1994 dodge caravan?
Look for the big hose that goes from the radiator back to the engine. The thermostat should be where the hose meets the engine.

It is fairly simple, (make sure the engine is not hot!!!!) take the hose off at the engine, be aware that some coolant will leak out. The thermostat will sit in a hole. I think that you can just pull it out and put the new one in. Either take a picture of how it sits there or write it down.

Make sure to remove the old gasket which may require some scraping or using a wire brush. Make sure the gasket and thermostat are seated properly then put the hose back on. You may have lost a little coolant but don't worry about that until you make sure the connection isn't leaking by running the engine.

After it is cooled down add enough coolant to replace what was lost.

You didn't say which engine was in it.
