I'm going to run a tap down it before replacing the bolt. Lucky me, the thermostat wasn't even stuck open. I'm now looking at the temperature sending unit.

It looks to me, like the PO used some black RTV to make sure the stripped bolt wouldn't leak. At least you should be able to re-tap it to a bigger thread size.

There was some black rtv on the thermostat and a little ran over to the hole. The paper gasket was totally trashed when I took it off. There were some small puddles on top of the intake.

Helicoil install wasn't difficult. The intake IS aluminum.

I got the a/c converted to r134 today. Yes I paid. It's getting hot here and I recently had back surgery so I can't work on anything for a few more weeks. A/c blows great now.

I hope everything works out ok. I think I need to find something wrong with me. Everyone else seems to be down for the count. :biggrin:

 Ben , it is your clean unadulterated lifestyle that keeps you young and fit.  Seems like a lot of work. I prefer pharmaceuticals.  Lol

Ugh. I feel ya . Been messing with my AC  in 2005 chevy for a month. At at least I have cold air now but no heat ( that can wait) .  Also, $129 actuator from the dealer is the wrong part ( I think) . The amazon $ 30 replacement should arrive today. Hopefully, that will be the end of it.  I am running out of parts to replace..
