Follow the hose from the radiator to the housing and inside the part the hose conects to will be the thermostate just be sure you pay attention to how it went in, if you live somewhere warm you dont even need it in there, it just helps heat the car before opening and flowing to the heater core to give the interior heat. usually its the upper radiator hose that you follow, good luck if you need a more specific guide i can look it up in mitchelondemand5 for you, thanks and pass the blue please ; )

2000 Buick century overheating


Change thermostate and make sure there is enough coolant (not water) in the system.
Check that the thermostate sensor is working properly.

Over heating


The water pump has what's called a 'weeping hole' built into it. If the pump is bad You'll se water coming out of the hole. When was the last time you flushed the radiator? It may be your radiator cap is bad, they should be changed once a year & the radiator flushed. You can also test ur thermostate. take out ur thermostate & put it in a pot of water so that the water covers the thermostate. Then put a cooking thermometer in the pot to & heat the water til it says 195. u should see the car thermostate begin to open. if it don't it's bad & needs replacing.

Radiator over flow bottle fills with coolant.


There's nothing wrong with the overflow bottle filling with coolant, that's what it's there for. As long as it doesn't pour out the top it's fine.

I need to change thermostate


first make sure you have the right a mount of anti-freeze in it first and there is no air bubbles in the systems but to change the thermostate follow the upper radiator back to the engine and for the most part it only has 3-screws holding it make sure the engine is cool and that way you do not lose all of your anti-freeze and put the new thermostate in the same way the old one was.

My lumina is geting hot because the water dont circulate


ONe of two things,your thermostate has gone bad or the water pump is bad. Regardless if your are going to change your water pump, it's a goos thing to change your thermostate too. Good luck.  The water isn't that hard to change on the 3.4 but the thermostate can be a pain.

How to change out thermostat in 1991 buck centry 3300


your thermostate is probably on the block sideways in whitch case you need to remove the air filter outr of your way and loosen the clamp on the thermostate housing. from there take out the 3 bolts holding the thermostat housing in place and remove it. Caution water/antifreeze will come out. take the thermostate out watching where the gasket has been placed and install the new one after cleaning the suface of the old gasket. sometimes it is good to use indian head gasket sealer. there will be 2 bolts on top and 1 bolt on the bottom under the housing. install the new thermostate tightn the hose replace your filter and fill the over flow resivor only to the point on COLD MAX. take the cap off the radiator start the car wait for the thermostate to open and fill the raditor the rest the way up. if it starts to boil over just shut the car off and let it cool than add more water *** needed...
