CHRYSLER SEBRING THERMOSTAT PROBLEM

2004 Chrysler Sebring • 55,000 miles

The is a convertible GTC Sebring. The car started to overheat a few days ago and I noticed that thermostat housing was leaking. After fiddling with it ended up coming right off. I tried some extra strength glue and some liquid gasket, but it didn't hold. What is the best way to connect these to pieces back together.

It's all one piece you need a new housing.

Thank you. Do you happen to have an instruction guide on how to change the thermostat housing?

It will be the sameprocedure. Besides the picture that you have is for a 2.0 or 2.4L i'm sending apic of 2.7 and it is CLEARLY not what you have. Just take the one with you and match it up at autoparts store, it may be one item with thermostat anyhow. Next time send the engine size when asking a question.

Yes the picture obviously doesn't match but the engine says 2.7. I also found this part which looks like the one I need and it says it is for a 2.7

When you say it's the same procedure do you mean as the 2.0 or the 2.4
