Land Rover Freelander I have a 2002 Land Rover Freelander

Resolved Question:

I have a 2002 Land Rover Freelander with the V6. I had a coolant leak. I took off the engine cover and looked at the thermostat housing and it was pouring coolant out. I pulled on the two rubber hoses connected to it and it pulled right out. Took out the thermostat to inspect. I can't see if the housing clips together or if it's broke and I need another one.

Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

If the thermostat housing came out without unbolting it, it must be broken. The thermostat and housing are all one assembly.
