Not coming / spraying from the hose due to weak clamp pressure? Been there, experienced that.

The 2002 had a steel housing. Don't know if it would fit yours.

I'm not aware of the plastic thermostat housing being failure prone though. Has it been worked on (tightened) recently? at a Shop?

May as well replace the thermostat at the same time.

Your pressure test (20 psi?) created a new leak or a bigger leak.

Put in engine with vent hole up, then put housing on, I believe.

Maybe not when using an O ring. Looks positioned correctly per the arrow.

Right thermostat for the 3.3L?
