Unhappy 2001 Chrysler LHS

I have a Chrysler LHS 2001. Does anyone know where the thermostat is located? I just had the waterpump replaced about 6 months ago and now the car is overheating and the heater is blowing cold air.

Welcome to the Forums!

Follow your large radiator hose to where it mates to the top/side of the motor. The hose will be secured to the motor with only two bolts. Remove the two bolts, lift the hose off, and the thermostat will be right there. It will take you about 5-10 mins.

Thanks

I will check it tomorrow. Hopefully I will have some luck. Chryslers are really tough to work on.

you likely have a coolant leak somewhere...overheating plus cold heater outlet air equals low on coolant. coolant circulates thru the heater core whether the stat is open or not

Agree with Carguy, top up your coolant first, with engine running, cap off & heater on. Let the fan cycle on & off 1 or 2 times & make sure no big airpockets still in the cooling system, then see how temp gauge reads & heat works. Then you can worry about where the leak is if coolant bottle keeps going down.
