Engine Cooling problem
2004 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

We have a 2004 Honda Civic SI and we would like to know the location of the thermostat, as well as removal and installation process, as well we need to know what type of coolant and how much to put back in. How do we bleed the air out of the line after or when were we're done.

Drain the engine coolant.

Remove the splash shield.

Remove the radiator lower hose, then remove the thermostat.

Install the thermostat with a new O-ring, then install the radiator lower hose.

Install the splash shield.

Refill the radiator with Honda coolant, and bleed the air from the cooling system with the heater valve open.
