This video shows you how to replace the thermostat and gasket on a Honda J Series V6 engine. The J Series V6 has been in Hondas since 1999. If you have a Honda with a V6, it probably has a J series in it. You may not be having a problem with your thermostat, but it is a mechanical device, so you might consider replacing it at the 200K mark like I did with this vehicle. I strongly recommend a Honda part.

This is Episode 7 in the Acura TL Series.
