how do I replace a thermostat on a 2005 Chev Optra and where is it? Is this car known for any particular problems?
The thermostat is inside the thermostat housing.
Above says it all.
Lol just kidding, thermostats are usually located at the engine on the upper radiator hose. 2 or 3 13mm bolts and its out.
