      Thermostat replacement

      Iíve been looking high and low, the actual task of replacing the thermostat looks pretty easy however I cannot find the size of torx bit head on the mounting boots nor the recommended torque specs. Any help is greatly appreciated

      Service manual says 5.9 lb-ft for the thermostat housing retaining bolts. Doesn't specify the bolt size unfortunately.

      What do you mean there's no turbo?

      I remember it being an 8 or 10mm hex head, not a torx head. what year is your Aveo?
