    3.2L thermostat thread question

    Hello,

    In the picture attached would you be able to confirm if the circle bolt hole is supposed to be open through to the antifreeze passage? I can push straight through it and out the other side. To me it seems like it is going to leak.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Also I think you will be ok as long as threads are good.

    Thanks for the reply. the threads seem ok. I also got new bolts as they look to have some type of coating on them. I just dont want to get all back together and then it leaks from there. was debating using some loctite on the threads to hopefully seal it more.

    Yea that should do it. I was more worried about the metal pipe not sealing. But I replaced it before winter and no leaks yet
