So I've discovered a hole in my plastic thermostat housing/water outlet (where all the hoses come together on the drivers side of the engine. My question is, can I just take the hoses and 3 screws off and swap the plastic housing, or do I have to change the thermostat itself as well?

How many years/miles? If under 5 years/100,000, it's a powertrain item.

From what I've been reading, there's a new part that comes with a new top hose (they changed the connector).

I don't think you have to change the thermostat. But I'm halfway wondering if it wouldn't be a bad idea. The heaters on a few have failed - although, it might have been from low coolant.
