2005 2.2L Thermostat

Do you need to pull the exhaust manifold to replace this on the 2.2L motor?

No, just the heat shield.

When I replaced my Coolant Sensor a month ago, I didn't need to move anything to get to that, and the Thermostat is more towards the drivers side of the block than the temp sensor, so I wouldn't imagine anything needed to be taken apart to get to it.

All you need is a 10mm socket and a decent size extender. Pretty easy to do. I should have done a DIY when I changed mine

Never mind. The stealer-ship wants $125.00 to do it.... so they will be doing it. I don't have the patience to deal with it. I just don't understand why they put it where they did.

Lets see half and hour of work = $60, $40 dealer thermostat, $25 gasket.

Wow... $125.00 to change a thermostat. I'm in the wrong line of business. I should specialize in that kind of highway robbery.

Thats any kind of dealer for you, humongous price inflation of parts. Because "their" parts are superior to the parts at the local auto parts supply store.

a huge waste of money, when it only costs $30 for the part and gasket at Autozone, I would buy the part, put it in myself, then take that extra $95 and head to the strip club to celebrate my win over the dealership
