Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Pretty simple I will Iist the steps.
1) Drain radiator fluid
2) Remove radiator hose and thermostat cover(almost always on the top center left/right of motor and is oblong in shape with 2 bolts attaching to motor.
3) Remove old thermostat.
4) Purchase new thermostat bringing the old when in to match.
5) be sure to purchase a new gasket to prevent leakage.
6) Clean all areas COMPLETELY of old gasket material. Use sandpaper and a razer blade to remove without gouging any of the aluminum.
This step is important because it will assure a tight seal.
7)Reinstall new thermostat and make sure it goes in exactly the same as the old. Make a sketch of how the old one is positioned as you remove it if necessary.
8)Be sure that the bolts are tight but don't overtighten because aluminum strips easily and you don't want that believe me.
9)Refill system with fresh radiator 50/50 premix.
10)Double check all work
11)Start and check for leaks(if you have followed all you won't have any.
12)Laugh insanely at how much $$$$ you saved.
