How do you change the thermostat on a 1999 grand Prix gtp 3800?


The t-AT&T is located under the housing that is bolted to the intak manifold on the drivers side he the upper radiator hose is attached to. Remove the radiator hose from the housing. Remove the two bolts holding the housing to the intake manifold (a 10mm socket will work for this). Remove the housing. Remove the t-stat. Clean the mating surfaces of the t-stat housing and the intake manifold. Install the new thermostat. Install the housing. Reattach the hose to the housing. Top off the coolant in the radiator. Start the engine and let it idle until the cooling fans come on. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator and top off as necessary. Once the fans come on replace the radiator cap and you should be good to go. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

2001 pontiac grand am se v6 3.4L overheats-water pump is good, thermostat is good, replaced seals, replaced coolant reservoir tank, backflushed radiator, checked air intake manifold, checked coolant line....


is the engine fan coming on? , when the heads were removed ,were they pressure tested. u may need to use a carbon block test from the coolant tank. the liquid will turn a different color if exhaust gas is present in the coolant,which would be a internal problem

Torque sequence for 1996 chevrolet van intake manifold with a 4.3 litre moter


Ha, you tried to fool me with the bit about a 3.5 L motor--I could find that one...here is the complete procedure from AutoZone.com:




Installation To install:
  1. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces. Be sure to inspect the manifold for warpage and/or cracks. If necessary, replace it.
  2. Position the gaskets on the cylinder head with the port blocking plates to the rear and the This Side Up stamps facing upward. Then apply a 3 / 16 in. (5mm) bead of RTV sealant on the front and rear of the engine block at the block-to-manifold mating surface. Extend the bead 1 / 2 in. (13mm) up each cylinder head to seal and retain the gaskets.

    0996b43f80208c7b.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Lower intake manifold tightening sequence-4.3L engines
  3. Install the lower intake manifold. Tighten the bolts in sequence and in 3 steps, as follows:


    1. Step 1: 26 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
    2. Step 2: 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    3. Step 3: 133 inch. lbs. (15 Nm).

  4. Install or connect the following:

    Power steering pump Alternator bracket bolt near the thermostat housing Wiring harness to the lower manifold components, including the injector, EGR valve and ECT sensor Air conditioning compressor bracket-to-the lower intake manifold pencil braces
  5. Install transmission oil dipstick tube, if necessary.

    Fuel supply and return lines to the rear of the lower intake
  6. Temporarily reattach the negative battery cable, then pressurize the fuel system (by cycling the ignition without starting the engine) and check for leaks.
  7. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  8. Install or connect the following:

    Heater hose to the lower intake Upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing Distributor assembly and engage the wiring Ignition coil Connect vacuum hoses to the upper and lower intake manifold. New upper intake manifold gasket, making sure the green sealing lines are facing upward Upper intake manifold Manifold retainers. Tighten them to 88 inch lbs. (10 Nm) using two passes. Purge solenoid and bracket Brake booster vacuum hose at the upper intake manifold PCV hose to the rear of the upper intake manifold Vacuum hoses to both the front and rear of the manifold assembly Throttle body Throttle linkage to the upper intake Wiring to the upper intake components including the TP sensor, IAC motor, MAP sensor and the fuel meter Engine cover Air intake assembly
  9. Connect negative battery cable.
  10. Refill the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Hello I have a 2000 Cadillac Deville if the intake manifold gasket is bad would that cause my car to overheat?


It can cause it to overheat if it is leaking coolant into the engine or outside of the engine. Replace your thermostat and check your oil for water and your antifreeze for oil. This will confirm if your head gasket or intake manifold gasket is leaking. Check you water pump for leaks and and make sure your coolant reservoir and radiator are full with antifreeze. Another possibility is your catalytic converter is plugged up

Radiator fan not turning motor fan just replaced


check the coolant fan switch. on 4 cyl. engines it 's mounted on the driver side of cylinder head. on 6 cyl. engines it's mounted on the intake manifold, just above the water pump.there will be 3 sensors,it will be the one on the left. good luck

307 diesel air pipe collapses when engine runs


Hi

It sounds like the initial intake hose on a 90 bhp HDi engine, in which case you need to follow it and check for blockages, including inside the air box after removal of the air filter.
