Need to find out where the thermostat is
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello - the thermostat is inside a black plastic housing attached to the engine by 3 small bolts that is directly under the air intake to the throttle body. It is just about hidden from view until you removed the plastic air duct to the throttle body. If you would like assistance with this repair, I recommend a thermostat replacement service by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
