how do I change the thermostat on a 2002 venture
Follow the top radiator hose to a housing..looks like a pipe on a flange. Usually two bolts. Remove housing, put new thermostat in the same way the old one is in, pay attention . The thermostat also has 'block side' and radiator side; on it, use a a little high temp silicone gasket sealer on both sides Do not over- torque. Top off coolant.
Just to add to what fordnut is telling you,spring all ways go,s in block,pay close attenttion as FN, said.
Fordnut we are like Smokey and the bandit,look at our cars, : )
I get the girl this time
