    DESCRIBE ISSUE.... I am trying to change the thermostat and housing (as a unit). By doing research it looks like the power steering pump has to be moved out of the way above the thermostat. Which is a pain because I just had it out to change the sensor on the pump. Also the AC compressor has to be moved below the thermostat to get at the last housing bolt. Give me a break.
    Twice now over the years I have had to remove the entire intake just to change the PCV hose that had collapsed (and of course the PCV valve) This takes me most of a weekend
