Default Re: Coolant/Thermostat Change

I don't know about that. All I know is that the Honda one was only a couple
bucks more than the one Schuck's had so I got the Honda one.

Default Coolant/Thermostat Change

Hi everyone,

I just finished flushing the cooling system. Replaced thermostat and changed
the coolant. As some of you know I have a 98 accord. I guess the hardest
part was removing the pipe by the thermostat. It was in a hard to reach
place (below the throttle body and behind the engine). I had to remove the
air intake pipe in order to unscrew the thermostat housing. The pipe was
stuck to the mating. I had to push with a screw driver underneath the pipe
so I can unstuck it. It was a bitter experience since there was no room for
manuevering. They could've simply placed the damn thermostat in the front or
to the side damn it. It's an item that has to be changed every so often.
I've worked on other cars that the thermostat was very accessible. Even on a
lincoln towncar I used to have before the thermostat change was a piece of
cake.

Now I have a question for you. I bought the thermostat from Lee's. The stock
thermostat on my accord was a little bigger than the one I bought today. Do
you know if it makes any difference? Seems like the thermo I got today is
kind of generic, not exactly a honda part. Anyone used one of those generic
thermos? How do you they work? I'm assuming they have to be changed more
often than the stock ones. Let me know.

Well, that's what I've been doing this evening. I'm about to grab some food
and enjoy some TV.
