Repair procedures

Removal
  
Disassembly of the thermostat would have an adverse effect, causing a lowering of cooling efficiency.
1.
Drain engine coolant so that its level would be under the thermostat height.
2.
Disconnect the radiator lower hose (B).

3.
Remove the water inlet fitting (A) and thermostat (B).

Inspection
1.
Immerse the thermostat in water and gradually heat the water.

2.
Check the valve opening temperature.
Valve opening temperature :
82±1.5°C (179.6±2.7°F)
Full opening temperature :
95°C (203°F)
If the valve opening temperature is not as specified, replace the thermostat.
3.
Check the valve lift.
Valve lift :
8mm(0.3in) or more at 95°C (203°F)
If the valve lift is not as specified, replace the thermostat.
Installation
1.
Place the thermostat in the block.
(1)
Install the thermostat (B) with the jiggle valve upward.
(2)
Install the new O-ring.
2.
Install the water inlet fitting (A).
Tightening torque :
18.6 ~ 23.5 N.m (1.9 ~ 2.4 kgf.m, 13.7 ~ 17.4 lb-ft)

3.
Connect the radiator lower hose (B).

4.
Fill with engine coolant.
5.
Start engine and check for leaks.
