okay so i take it this is on your celi? if so go under the car and pull off the underbody crap and once you do the on the passanger side at the front of the car there should be a tube thats just chilin there and next to it is a white little plastic lookin thing just untwist it and the stuff should flow out of that tube.

Or you can just pull the lower hose, though it's a touch messy ;)

I was trying to figure out how to get the fluid out of that hose, I didn't see the twist knob, til I re-read the thread...

Ok, question, I got a Stant thermostat, but the effing thing is too big!?

It's the exact sized one both Napa, and Advanced Auto gave me...

What size is the one that goes in our car?!

Sometimes those part chains give you shitty stuff that isn't right.

For example: They offer two models of water pumps for my Lexus: one with ten mounting holes and one with 11. They didn't use the 11 hole one until 1999.

Its like....organize your stuff.

Just go back to the store and have them call the manufacturer, contact number will be in their catalog or EPC, they probably just have the wrong part number listed in their EPC.
