      2009 thermostat change

      I was wondering if anyone knew the size of the socket required to remove the housing cover it looks to be an external torx or star type. Thanks!

      I don't have my car anymore to look at it, but if it looks like an external torx, it will probably require a 12 point metric socket somewhere between 10mm and 15mm.
      Sorry GM, the Turbo Sonic was priced too close to the Focus ST. I gots me a Ford.

      The thermostat housing was made from bakelite, and is expensive, about 240.00 usd aprox, mine is broken for a thermal change...

      The housing don't comes with the thermostat the part number is diferent, but it becomes whit a temperature sensor, that, and the material makeit expensive...

      the thermostat comes only with the cap housing, and costs about 85.00 USD...

      check it...

      I have ab 73,000 miles my wife complained of it running hot I'm guessing the thermostat is sticking. I have found the cap housing at dealerships and price ranges from 80-120 dollars. Napa can order one for 40 but I'm not sure if that's cap housing or thermostat? Can yu remove the thermostat? I'm pretty fed up with this korean engine!!!!!!!

      Don't the 2009's have the GM ecotec engine? I may be wrong....but I thought the later aveo's didn't have the foreign engine...
