Go to www.alldatadiy.com and spend $26.95 for help. Not everything is free in life.

I'm sorry you are so DEFENSIVE. It's not $28.95 but $26.95. For a whole year you get any factory info you need to work on your car. Just replace the thermostat housing.

i know i have to replace thermostat housing and i dont mind paying the 26.95 but do you give me step by step instructions on what i need to take off in order to remove all bolts that are attached

In defense of PARTS GUY I agree .Whether it's $26.95 for on-line or more for a factory manual ( my preference ) and if you like the car and want to keep it , the factory manual will definitely be worth it.You'll save a lot more than it's cost in the long run.AND it gives you step-by-step instructions -get this...already printed out for you and you don't have to figure out how to navigate alldata on-line (yes it does have it's good points) I'm just spoiled and used to factory manuals for my cars. ....Back to the original question... IF you HAVE patience and follow the instructions on the j-b weld(NOT j-b QUICK) then yes it could be repaired .!!! must allow time for it to cure properly..and then some..Good luck ......That'll be $1.00 please.......................................But I'll give you a 100% discount this time ONLY>
