I want to change the thermostat and dex -cool. I belive the thermostat is off the upper hose. How do I get the housing off? There is a bolt, not on the motor near the hose. What is this? Also how much fluid?
Do you

How many bleed ports are there? Is it just the one on the housing? Also do I have to use dex cool if I flush the system?

I always used the dex cool and always recommend it

most of them have one but look above water pump housing if u have a black tube with a bleeder on it
open bleeder and fill do not start
when full close bleeder run it for 10 min or untill u have heat inside
shut off let it cool and check the level again
good luck
