Yes I think there is an O ring . But in any case try this, coat the outside of the pipe with RTV/Silicone gasket sealer, put it back in and let it set up for an hour or soo, this will seal the pipe.

95 Buick Skylark 2.3 L 4cl There is a metal rod that goes into the thermostat housing. I am not sure what it is but it is leaking out of the connection. Is there some sort gasket that fits this...


The plastic housing on the driver side top of the engine that bolts to the head is the water outlet housing. The thermostat is under the car where the metal cooling pipe bolts to the water pump housing.

The metal tube that goes into the housing has an o-ring that seals it into the housing. The tube is held in place with a couple of bolts. Remove them and remove the tube. There should be signs of an o-ring on the tube. Sometimes you have to replace the housing in order to get them to seal up

I cant find where the thermostat goes to replace it on a 2.4L engine. For a buick skylark


Very odd arrangement. You have to reach thru the exhaust manifold. I will paste instructions from Autozone.com below.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly drain and recover the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  3. Unfasten the coolant inlet housing bolt, which is accessible through the exhaust manifold.

Fig. Fig. 5: View of the thermostat and related components-2.4L engine

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Remove the second coolant inlet housing bolt, then remove the coolant inlet housing.
  4. Remove the thermostat, then clean the old gasket material from the mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Position the thermostat in its correct location, then install the coolant inlet housing using a new gasket. Tighten the retaining bolt to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm) on the 2.3L and 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm) on the 2.4L engine.
  2. Install the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  4. Install the coolant inlet housing bolt through the exhaust manifold.
  5. Properly fill the cooling system.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, remove the radiator cap, then start the engine. Allow the engine to run with radiator cap removed, until the upper radiator hose becomes hot (thermostat open). With the engine idling, add coolant to the radiator until the level is up to the bottom of the filler neck.
  7. Install the radiator cap, making sure the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

How to replace the water pump on 1993 oldsmoblie achieva.


2.4 enigine is the harder of the 3 enignes. it will need a timing chain to be removed and a coolant tube in the back of the engine to be removed. this job on the book calls for almost 7 hours.

if its 3.3 or 3100 its alot easier.

3100 is just 4 10mm pulley bolts and 5 or 6 small 8mm water pump bolts.

3.3 is alittle more work, but same concept as 3100 engine. more owkr only cause its in a tighter area.

good luck,
michael
