How to change the thermostat in a 95 Avalon

Anyone know how to do this? I am familiar with American cars but, I don't even know where it is on the Avalon. The heat takes a long time to get hot and then never gets real hot, I assume it is the thermostat?

You know that tiny vent, a little bit right from the ignition? that vent has the thermostat sensor in it. I remeber finding it and wondering why it was so dirty. Try cleaning it, see if that fixes your problem.

are you talking about the thermostat in your cooling system in the engine?

if you are talking about the climate controls, i dont see why the thermostat would matter since the temperature is just selectable in the dial and doesnt regulate itself based on the ambient temp in the car

i havent looked at where my thermostat is, but its got to be similar to american cars. i have changed a few on domestics before as well, id say follow the hose of the raidator to the block, and its probally there. check the owners manual if you have it, it would most likely in there, i'll look at mine tomorrow and see what i can find. heck its probally on one of the stickers under the hood. check that too. it wouldn't be something too hard to get to is my guess tho.

dont follow the top radiator hose that just leads to the goose neck where you put coolant in. follow the bottom radiator hose, on the d/s of the engine. you will have to take the air intake off to gain easy access to the tstat housing. should only be 3 nuts that hold tsat housing on.

Thanks, I had already looked at the top hose, didn't look to me like it was there. I will follow the bottom hose.
