I pulled the radiator to get the fan shield fixed and figured I'd change the thermostat while I have the room to work. I got the housing out but now I cannot get the old thermostat out. It will not move at all or turn in the bore. I've given it a soaking in penetrating oil but I'm if anyone else has had this problem and what you did to get the old thermostat out?

Mine was stuck on the engine side (not the housing). I used penetrating oil and gently "hit" it with a rubber mallet. It didn't take long before mine came out.
