Sorry to be obtuse..... usually = yes... always = no. The Dodge (I think
it's the 2.7???) is one that comes to mind - thermostat on the lower left of
In your case, I think it safe to assume that the thermostat is, indeed,
mounted where you think it is...
I'm not sure about your Civic, but In once had a Toyota with the 'stat mounted
the lower hose went into the block. I found this out the hard way on a cold
evening during a snow storm.
Thermostats are "usually" found where the upper hose connects to the engine,
they can be located elsewhere. You may want to try a Honda newsgroup or forum.
i have a honda accord if yours is like mine the thermostate is located
passingers side towards the back of the engine where the head meets the
block and the intake bolts to the head i just looked at mine and it is
where the lower hose meats up with the engine. it is not in the upper hose
if yours is like mine
Well i took your advice, and it was on the lower hose... looks like a
temp sensor right in front of it too.
Anyway, I would have yanked the top one if i hadn't had at least some
confirmation that it may be on the lower hose.
Friggin Hondas ;P Wifes car... i couldn't talk her in to a crown vic.
again if yours is like mine on that thermostate housing there is a bleeder
it looks like a bleeder on brake calipers after u have it back together
and when u put your antifreeze back in open that bleeder up to get the air
out of the block
