95 accord v6 thermostat
Someone help me I have a 95 v6 accord and I guess I read the wrong directions somewhere and when I was trying to replace my thermostat I accidentally took some sort of turbine thing off, thinking it was the thermostat housing, and after I put it back in my car wont start, it makes a clicking sound from the part that I took out, so I need to know how to make that work again, and I need to know where the thermostat is so I can replace that, someone please help me I need my car to run again!
never mind i fixed the starting problem i didn't have the threads lined up correctly, now I just need to know exactly where the thermostat is and how to change it so if anyone at all can help me that would be awesome, thanks!
Look at your top radiator hose and then follow it back to the engine, your thermostat sits inside that hose. Pop that hose off and you'll see it, coolant is going to start pouring out a bit so be ready for it.
Take out the old thermostat and put in the new one with the jiggle pin on the thermostat facing upward. Put the hose back and add more coolant or just do a complete coolant flush if you like... hope this helps.

well I can't get that hose off for sure but the opening there is not big enough for the thermostat are you sure you are thinking of the right engine?
Oh shoot! I meant LOWER radiator hose! The hose should be about 2 inches in diameter. Just follow that hose back to the engine and that's where the thermostat is located. You're going to need to take off the intake to get to it cuz it's pretty cramped.
