1988 Ford Ranger broken bolts in thermostat housing
1988 FORD RANGER
I was trying to drill out a broken bolt that broke off in the housing while I was taking it out. The drill bit broke off in the broken bolt. What do you suggest I do?
have the same problem?

First I need to know what shape the bolt is in before I can give you possibilities.
Is the head of the bolt still good? Or is it snapped off and just the body of the bolt is in the hole?

I changed my thermostat in my car, and snapped the bolt off flush with the engine block. Going to the garage and let them deal with it, I have done enough damage trying to save some money.
