Comments about CARQUEST Caps and Stats Thermostat:

If it were available in store I probably would have gotten the Gates thermostat. Instead, avoiding the least expensive one, I got the Stant. It is a correct fit and temperature (172 deg). It appears to be well-made. Having read other reviews, I also bought the Felpro O-ring gasket, #35162. Sure enough, the ring that came with it was of no use and I used the Felpro gasket. Make sure you get a correct, separate gasket and all will be fine. Had it come with the right one, I would have rated it 5 stars. Had others not warned me about the gasket issue, I suspect I would have been frustrated and rated it one star!

      Comments about CARQUEST Caps and Stats Thermostat:

      Went to install and discovered that the included gasket was similar to factory BUT would not fit into thermostat housing because it was too large. Gasket has a rubber ring around outside which they might intend will fold over to provide a complete seal but I could not make it fit/work. Ended up reusing the original gasket. Thermostat is working fine.

          A:

          Location and Instructions to replace the thermostat: 1. Locate the thermostat housing by following the radiator hose from the radiator to the location where the hose connects to the intake manifold of the Accord. The metal housing that the hose is connected to is called the thermostat housing. Remove the hose from the housing by loosening the retaining clamp with a screwdriver. Slide the clamp down the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. 2. Remove the thermostat housing from the Accord by taking out the two bolts that hold the housing to the intake manifold. Lift up the manifold to remove it. 3. Pull the old gasket off of the intake manifold. The gasket may stick to the bottom of the thermostat housing. If the gasket is not located on the intake manifold, inspect the housing for the gasket. 4. Pull the old thermostat out of the intake manifold and immediately replace it with a new one. This will prevent debris from settling in the intake manifold. 5. Place a small amount of RTV gasket maker on the bottom edge of the thermostat housing and place the housing back on to the intake manifold. Bolt it into place using the bolts that were previously removed. 6. Slide the radiator hose back onto the intake manifold and secure the retaining clip with a screwdriver.
